I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

Icy Cold Measures need to be taken.

So....bought my new shoes. Nice extra cushioning ones. So far so good.

Since I went to the big city where we used to live I also took the opportunity to go for a run on my old route. It was nice...too many manicured lawns with pesticide signs though. I like the country better.
What I did like was that I could weave in and out of streets and create the route I wanted at will. Here in the country I either have to run huge loops, or backtrack on the same road.

Anyway, I have decided that Ice Baths are going to become a routine thing in this house.
It is the best way to stop and minimize tissue damage in my knee...

I started panicking when I realized that I should be up to about 30km a week by now, and I'm having knee pain with only 20-25kms. So....measures will be taken.

Adam said to me..."If God wants you to run the Marathon, you will" I just cried.

Did you pick yourself up a running skort while you were there? I think you'd look cute in one!

Let me guess, Adam said that if God wants you to have a running skort you'll have one ;) Honey, if the only thing stopping you is your husband, I'm sure you can find a way to get what you want ;)
