An Update on the Year of Health

Well, the year of health is coming along but lately it also feels like the year of everything else too.  We are busy people these days!   It's almost entirely all fun stuff-- friends in town, weddings, baptisms reunions etc. but still really busy. *

At least we are all happy and healthy (except the pink eye of last week)  :)

I have been running with the local community center club and am loving it.  I am seeing some substantial improvements and am now down to my pre-Deirdre weight**.   The club runs three times a week and I very quickly realized that two weeknight runs a week were too much for our family so I am doing one run during the day and one run at night.    I am still working from home for now so I am usually able to fit in runs during my lunch breaks.  I am not going to be in stellar shape for the marathon but I feel pretty confident that I will at least finish with a smile -- which to me is an cool enough of an accomplishment with a 7 month old!

Running with people has been really helpful-- they are all a lot faster than I am but I have picked up some great trips and have managed to shave 5 minutes from my 5k time from when I started with the club 6 weeks ago.   They are the nicest people and I feel so blessed to have found a community for running!

One of our quantified goals for this year was to run some events as a family.  We have had a hard time finding stroller friendly 5k's and had planned to run one on the 4th.  Due to the heat, the event was cancelled so we ran as a family in the early am before it got hot-- we are going to go ahead and count that though since the intent was there . . . all participants in our family get to count toward our tally in our rules-- that means we have done 4!

*and in other news, I got moved to a new job.  Yep, this is the third job in the year that I have been with the company.  All good news on this end, but a little crazy.

** Now I am just working to get pre-James.
