Fresh Starts

I have been on a running hiatus for about 4 months now. But I now feel ready to get started again. After the marathon last fall I couldn't believe how burnt out on running I was. I can't help but think that part of my lack of motivation came from my disapointing finish at the marathon.

After the marathon Ben and I took a road trip down to Napa and then onto Vegas. When we got home I had gained about 5 lbs. And then after the Holidays I put on about 5 more. I've lost about half of it but have that weight to lose plus the 20 that I need to lose to get back to a healthy weight. I'm really hoping that this blog and it's readers will help me get back into fighting shape as to speak.

I know that I said that I haven't been running, but I have picked up a new sport... swimming! This winter I realized that I'm 30 years old and didn't know how to swim. Sure I could get in the water and make it to the other end of the pool with a dog paddle slash flutter kick type stroke. But I wanted to learn how to properly swim. And to be comfortable beathing with my face in the water. And guess what... I love swimming!

I leave you with a picture of our newest family member, Cooper!
