she's back

That's right, folks. I am officially back. This morning I went for my first run in many months, and it felt great. Yes, it was slow, and it was short, but it was running nonetheless. It gave me such a thrill, and visions of leisurely 5-milers opened before me. Wish me luck (and an open treadmill at the gym) for the future.

Yay for getting on the road! I am very impressed that
1. your first run in months was 5 miles!
and
2. that it "felt great"

Last week I had 3 different days with five milers and great was not the first word I'd used to describe them, haha. And I haven't stopped running/racing yet!
So in other words, good luck and I hope your running goes well- and that there's always an open treadmill for you :)

oh-- don't worry. my first run wasn't five miles. It was only one. But I imagined that I could run five miles in a reasonable amount of time and without too much pain, and that little thought has inspired great hope.

Oooh, I read that wrong the first time. I thought it said your first run was five miles and I was going to quit, haha. Okay, I have visions of leisurely 5-milers too. And you know, running is running, no matter how-- long for :)

I hope today was wonderful!
