I have a blog?????

I never thought I would have one. But, I have so enjoyed reading my friends' (Corrie and Leslie's) blogs that I thought I would try it out!

The first week of summer is always the best! Sleeping in, (despite all my poor neglected children scrounging for food), the smell of sunscreen, and finding wet towels everywhere. Okay, the wet towels aren't that great.

My flowers are looking great. Found my first open blossom on my red rose bush. It is beautiful. I have finally learned to stop and smell the roses. I love to stop on the way in or out of the house and admire them.

Got 2.5 miles done on the treadmill this morning in 42 minutes. I ran a little, but mostly walked it. Wish I was really running again. I look in the mirror and don't see myself. I see a chubby faced lady who is getting older. I want to feel like an athlete again. I want thigh muscles again. So, I'm working on getting 17 cardio workouts in by the end of June. Hopefully, I'll be able to keep this up even while we are on vacation. I've gotten my first two workouts done already. I have my sights set on running the 10K in downtown Cincinnati on Thanksgiving morning.

Headed for a well deserved HOT SHOWER!!!

Looking for a slice of running heaven in 2007!

Yeah!! Welcome to the world of blogging! It's lots of fun! And I think it's a bit therapeutic, too!

Congratulations on your flowers and your 2.5 miles! Wow! I'm pretty sure I may have moved 2.5 miles within the last 4 months or so. I'm very impressed. Good luck with that marathon, though personally, I can see no reason to put yourself through such agony! But I do respect those who do it, it is quite an accomplishment!

Can I be added to your "friends that have blogs" list? I am so excited to know that people in my now HOME WARD (I can start saying that because I plan to be here awhile) have blogs.
ps Does this count as VT? jk
