So growing up, I was never a runner and darn proud of it. But when I managed a cross country ski team while working for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, part of the training was running at a track. It inspired me to start running and so I did. Then I wanted to see what a triathlon was all about. So I joined the Tri team to do Wildflower. Yeah so that ended because of my pregnancy. Now 7 years later, I am really starting to run again. And this is a great time of year to do it before it gets hot. Here is hoping that I make this a good habit so that I can continue through the summer with Juno. Probably won't be as long of runs at least outdoors but if I can run a few miles that's good.
Today, I am thankful for my crackberry and my husband. He loaded my phone with music. And I am thankful to the Beastie Boys for making music to run to even though I probably looked like a total dork running and singing 'You gotta fight for your right to Parteeeeee!'. I ran faster than I have before the music carrying me away. It was awesome.

In other news, Max seems to be having serious growing pains. His legs hurt before bed and then he sent Maggie down to us around 3:45. I gave him motrin and covered him back up. I don't know how quickly everyone went back to sleep but Maggie got up right before 6 as did Harry. This morning he was still hurting so we did all the things we could think of that we did when we would cramp. Banana (potassium), Oatmeal (good carbs and fiber), cytomax with grape juice(his mom with the grape juice), bath with salts and some more motrin around 10:30 and then bacon fried rice for lunch. Oh and let's not forget the bengay patches. He didn't want to listen to us and try to work the charlie horses out my moving his feet all around.  I hope the other two don't go through these growing pains. He really hurt.

  1. I used to run cross country in high school but now I can only walk. Sorry to hear about Max's growing pains. I get charlie horses quite often and they are so painful!!
