Almost right away, Jack fell asleep in the stroller and he stayed sleeping even after we got back home. I just did my short lake run and, despite not having done any form of exercise all year, I was able to almost run the whole way (I had to walk up 2 big hills). My legs are a little sore today, but I feel great!
Just starting out:
Back home (and passed out):
After the run, I walked around a little more while Jack slept. Then we came home and I sat on the porch and enjoyed a glass of chocolate milk. As I sat there, sun shining down on me and staring at my beautiful, sleeping son, I felt at peace. Behind me was a house full of chores needing to be done, but I put it out of my mind to enjoy that moment and what was in front of me. It was wonderful and just what I needed.
I hope to have many more days like this one!
