I'm Back (hopefully for good)

I've been in a funk lately. I also didn't run once all summer. Yep, you heard that right. I spent all that money on a fancy jogging stroller and I didn't use it all summer long. I think the last time I went for a run was May. I do have a fairly good excuse reason for not running. It's has been unbearably hot and disgusting. I didn't want to run in the heat, much less take Jack out in it. But pretty soon it's going to be winter and my excuse reason for not running then will be that it's too cold. It has finally started to cool off and I need to take advantage of the wonderful fall weather while I can. No more excuses.

So I went for a run today. And you know what? I feel a hundred times better for it. Remember the lake behind my house that I was running around? I had finally gotten to a point where I could run the whole way without stopping. It's only 1 1/4 mile, but I need to start somewhere. I did a lot better than expected. I stopped a few times to take some pictures and only walked once (up a really big hill!).

I'm hoping to make this more regular. I'm also hoping to change some other things in my life. Eating healthier, for example. I might change this blog to be my healthy living blog, as opposed to only writing about running. I want to raise Jack to be healthy and I need to lead by example.

Getting ready to head out (and doesn't he look ten times bigger than he did back in May?):

I'm so lucky to have this right by my house (and that hill is bigger than it looks!):

Home sweet home:

I'm hoping to go again tomorrow. Strike that, reverse it. I'm definitely going! Stay tuned!
