It's been a while

Fought the alarm clock this morning. Woke up the first time. Reset the second alarm and then slept through it.

This wasn't what I wanted to do this morning. But, I told myself I needed to.

After I finally crawled out of bed at 7:45 and got myself dressed, Bentley kept giving me this look. You know, the puppy-dog-eyes. So I suited him up and brought him with. I also put in my new Yurbuds. (Thanks Jill!!! They were awesome by the way! If you want to win your own pair, check out Katye's giveaway here.)

As we walked down the driveway I could feel this sensation building in my stomach. It was not the Brown was Excitement!!! I was excited to run! When we crossed the crack in the road that I always use as a starting line I was practically dancing! I have missed this feeling!

I could tell that it had been a while since I ran. My legs were tight and my stride was short. But all that mattered was that I was moving forward. Bentley and I only needed 2 short walk-breaks! Our time wasn't fantastic, but it was faster than expected.

2.01 miles in 22.12 minutes. Not bad I say.

We're running again tomorrow before I head in to get some school work done.

Happy Running!!


  1. Yeah! I am so glad you got them, and love them! Aren't they amazing!!!

  2. Good job! I love when you feel excited for a run. :)
