Just checking In

A few weeks ago Tom at Runners Lounge emailed me to let me know that I was the winner of the New Balance 910 Trail shoes! Well they arrived in the mail last week and when I opened the box I instantly fell in love! Aren't they beautiful??!! And they are GORE-TEX!! I can't wait to try them out!


On Saturday I went for a 2 mile run. It was pretty good - I just took it easy and felt great pretty much the whole time. There were some hills and they were hard! My lungs are slowly getting used to running again, I am not liking this cold weather though!

The swimming continues - even though I am back running I don't think I can give up swimming. I just like having the variety. This morning I swam 2100 yards.

And Congrats to LACEY on an awesome first marathon! Seriously girl I don't know how you do it but you are FAST!!

That's all for me now! Happy Monday!

Nice shoes. Goretex huh? I'm thinking about starting some trail running (we have a ton of trails around here) for a little variety. I'll need to check those babies out.

It's great to hear that you are running again with no pain!
