Why did I decide to start running again when it’s 115 degrees in Phoenix? Am I a glutton for punishment? Not quite sure. But it’s time to get healthy. And running has always been effective for me in the past. Just now, I have an extra 40 pounds following me. You know the feeling when you are getting back into shape and you ask yourself “Why did I allow this to happen to myself?” Well, I’m there. But enough of that, today was the day. I want to run a marathon within the next 2 years. The problem- I can’t even run a mile without stopping right now. So I started. I just started.
First on the agenda- I needed new running shoes. Jeff, Sam, and I went and checked out a local running store. Samantha loved trying on shoes.
It has been great to have them be a part of this journey with me. So far one of the most enjoyable thing about this blog is involving Jeff and the kids in my interests and enjoying working on items from my list. They are really excited. I hope to be a consistent example of exercise for the kids. Jeff and I waited until 9:30 p.m. to begin our run but I’m so excited we started. It wasn’t pretty but we are on the run.Tweet
