It is 2011!

How time flies!! My winter break went by very quick, but I tried to spend a lot of my time relaxing and reading. I did work some but I also read 6 books in 2 weeks. Now it back to reality of working my 4 jobs. Alot was accomplished last year including a new roof and a new fence. Now all that is left is new flooring upstairs. Once this is done, the number of jobs I work will be decreasing. Woo hoo! I am super excited about having more time for myself and my family.

Lately I have been forcing myself to go to the gym. I go ahead and take my gym bag with me and get it done because if I go home I am not going back out. I really would like to get into running more. I would love to have a goal of maybe running a half marathon, but all the training schedules start out with running 3 miles which I can not do. So, first thing is to train for a 5k, then maybe a 10k, and if I survive that I will look into a half marathon. Now I just need to get a few more ice packs for my knees and legs for after my runs.

Can I just tell you how wonderful it was to see you last night? You look amazing, and oh my word, girlfriend, I have a new respect for your job of teaching! haha But I also wanted to say that you are such an inspiration to me...4 jobs (that you are wonderful at) and having time to work out?! I'm beyond jealous. Let me know how the training is going! :)

Girl, if you're wanting to run a marathon: YOU CAN DO IT! Are you wanting to run the WHOLE thing or are you cool to run/walk? I did all of my distance runs with intervals and it made it much easier.... then the 3 miles wouldn't be so hard. For instance: start with run 5 mins/walk 2 mins... then bump up the running and back off the walking. Or even start with run 2/walk 5... gotta start somewhere, ya know?
