And I am back to running. And just in case you thought I wasn't really a runner, I posted a picture of my feet. I have lost 2 toenails (the second toes) since January. Do you see the blackness at the base of the right big toe? That means I am going to lose that one too, just in time for sandal season. I know, I know, I need a pedicure... but I wanted to take the picture before I disguise the damage.
Oh! And see that lovely floor beneath my feet? My new bamboo flooring. It is nice, and I really like it.
I ran a 5 mile race in February. It was really a good experience for me. I hadn't trained at all, and was not at all injured, so I was able to really run for 5 miles. Now I know that 13 minute miles would not be considered "running" for most people, but for me, it is running. It was really a great experience.
I threw in the towel on ever getting outside and running. Just when I thought it might happen again, some brilliant person decided to make it daylight saving time in the middle of the damn winter! I am getting to work when it is still dark. So - I have made the trek to the gym to get on the treadmill. Now, I don't really love running on the treadmill, but when you haven't done it for a while, it isn't so bad. I can really crank up the music and just zone out on it - without looking for cars, potholes, dogs, and weirdos.
I am hopeful for spring to arrive and excitement to build about my triathlon and other races.
