back on track!

I had my 6 week checkup yesterday and got the all clear, so this morning I headed out for my first run back! Since I stopped running around 26 weeks, it's been 4 months since my last run!! It felt REALLY good to be out there again. I missed that time of worship - just me, God, outside, listening to my praise music - I love it! It was a hard run, but not as bad as I had worried it would be. I set out to do 2 miles, and ended up doing 3 - and was able to run the whole thing. My speed is definitely slower, but that's okay - we'll get there!! Oh, and these hills in SC are a bummer! I end the run coming UP a hill to our court - UGH!!! I think David and I are both going to do a half in Myrtle Beach in February, so our training will officially be beginning next month I think! Yippee! Here's to getting BACK in those clothes again!
