Finally - the old lady did it!

Well after getting back in practice ever since the boys were here, I've finally achieved my first little baby step goal of being a runner again. Today I ran more than 3 miles. At one time - without stopping. Ok, it was probably like an inch more than 3 miles, but hey that counts. Don't even ask me how long it took because that's another story. I'm far off my 'blistering' 9:34 mn ml from when I trained the boys at the high school track years and years ago (remember ... the birth place of the 'hobo-mobile'). Anyway, that's my news and I'm proud of it. Justin, I really don't need to know your time on the mile just yet. Let me be happy for a day or so! I'm committed to running the 5K of our Houston marathon in January. And unlike my past goal of running the half marathon like 5 years ago, this one will really happen. Yep, I can do it. Just checked results from last year and the slowest mile was 27.55. I think I can beat that! Wish me luck.


  • Sweet. Make sure you thoroughly document it and do some mob-blogging as you run.

    Congratulations. I've got to get back out in the next day or so... I've been off my feet for too long.

    Time for bed, now.
