The first run

When Elizabeth was born, I set December 1 as my "First Run" day, and I managed to pull it off. After I did carpool duties, I left Campbell and Elizabeth with B and headed out for a short run. It wasn't pretty or fast, but I managed to run/walk, with more running than walking, for a mile and half. I even managed to do strides at the end.

I'm a long way from being in shape, but I have to start somewhere. At least I didn't fall flat on my face like I did on my first run after having Campbell.

At least you're running. I can't even motivate myself to get out and walk. Kudos!

That's awesome! It took me about 3 1/2 years to start exercising again after my son was born. Keep up the good work!

donna said... can really clear your head and keep you sane. I just came back from buying a new set of Nike running shoes. I bought my last pair neary 4 years ago and pretty much all that's left are the laces and the i'm very excited to get out for a run this afternoon...(its the little things that make mothers happy) :0)
