Running that is. I knew my old running shoes were getting worn out by the fact that my feet starting hurting really bad and my shins and my knees. Unfortunately the salary of a graduate student made it difficult to buy a new pair. But my loving mother and father decided to save me from my pain and buy some for me! And I finally got to break them in today! Due to the fact that I was busy with getting things done at work before leaving for vacation and then being on vacation (for 11 glorious days) I didn't run for almost 2 weeks. My body was so happy to be back out there in beautiful, new shoes! And in perfect time to start training for the St. Jude half marathon. Yup, I signed up again. AND...my mom signed up with me!!! And she is already kicking my but! Now lets just hope I don't hurt myself while training again this year.
Oh, and it has been brought to my attention that my blog posts have been close to non existent these last few months. I just want to apologize to the (very) few of you who actually do read my blog and feel lost without me. I promise to make a better effort in keeping you up to date on my life happenings :)
