|Poppy- When you running today?? How far?? Get out there!!|
so...with thanks to kerc as well who suggested a 4pm/pre-daycare-pickup run as viable option, i packed my running clothes and headed off to work. i changed at 4pm, headed out the door and ran for 20 minutes! you all may recall i stalled a while back at 12 minutes...and i can't say i ran for 20 minutes straight [i had a side stitch that required i stop and walk for a few blocks] but i did do 20 minutes total, which counts for something, right?
anyway - welcome to the group all new mamas. we are not ALL seasoned marathon runners. i'm a beginner of the first order, but man - i SO badly want to be able to say, with confidence: 'i am a runner.' i can feel it, i want it so badly. sometimes when i run, i see my reflection in a store front window and think - 'hey, at least i look like one!'
but one day, one day i tell you - i will be that runner. and i will owe a lot of it to you strong, amazing women
on a food note: dh and i have been vegetarians for 20 years. all those yummy recipes involving black beans - sweet!
lucenamama - sadly, no we were only trick-or-treating in the 36/37th blocks. that would have been cool to see you doing your boo-run!
