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.

I'm Trying

I have to sheepishly admit that I have not been very consistent with my new running plan. Two weeks ago I headed out the door when I really should have just gone to bed and I paid for it. I woke up the next day with a fever and have been fighting the cold that just won't die for two weeks now.

I felt better yesterday and the sun was out so out I went. It was a fabulous run, reminding me that I am alive. I continue to be amazed at what running does to me. I always feel refreshed and new. I think because running is about me and ONLY me. It is me and the pavement and the sound of my breath.

I am only able to go for 20 minutes or so at this point, but it is worth it...sooooooo worth it.

Yesterday was the PERFECT fall day for a run. Glad to hear you got out for 20 minutes!
