Well, if you are like most people in the north, you are completely over the winter weather. It can be completely draining to constantly have to bundle up and stay in doors. I hate being cooped up in the house, but with a 6 month old in the picture now, I don’t venture out just to window shop. Heck, I don’t even venture out unless my life would depend on it.
This past week I was struggling to get up for my workouts because I was starting to get a cold. By Friday it had really hit me and I wasn’t moving…well by some standards. Once you have a kid, you really have no choice but to continue on with your daily activities. I took the day off work thinking I would nap when the little bundle napped. She just had other plans.
After three good days of rest, I am back at my workouts with Shaun T and hoping to get some running in soon. Unfortunately, it is not the brightest idea to bundle Hailey up and break out the jogging stroller just yet. ****SPRING NEEDS TO GET HERE NOW**** However, the running schedule is out and I need to start planning.
For the last couple of years I have started the season off with the Louisville St. Patty’s day race. I may hold off on this one and be a fair-weather runner. If it is a nice day, lace up my running shoes and join in just to get some exercise. There would be no ultimate goal with this race besides finishing. (The longest distance I have run since Nov. is 2.5 miles) I would also like to participate in the 8 mile Patriot Project Road March (requires carrying 35lbs on your back) in March, but we shall see. I may jump into that one on a whim and see how it goes.

If you want to participate in your first ever 5k and need someone to run/walk with you, get a hold of me! If it fits into my schedule, I would be happy to help you cross that finish line!!! I will go at whatever pace you are comfortable with so that you push yourself to do your best!
Be confident! Be fit! Be you!
