I'm going to start running again.....

Because of my husband's CRAZY work schedual, and that I've been trying to lose weight and running has NEVER helped me do that I haven't run since I did the Grantsville 4th of July 5k in 2008... Well running for me has always been my release, I've always called it my "therapy". So recent events and the fact that I'm reading Running With Angels.
I've decided that I need my therapy back and so I'm going to get myself back up to 3 miles in the next 7 weeks and start training for the Top Of Utah Half Marathon. The first time I did this race in 2005 it was NOT my greatest race and so for that reason I want to do it again and have a good race day so I'm going to follow this training program that is a walk/run program. I'm nervous about running again just for the fact that I've finally started to lose weight and I NEED to lose at least another 30 pounds and I hope that I can do both of training and continue my weight loss journey.......

In other news, William lost his 2nd tooth and the tooth fairy came this time!!! But he forgot to put his money under the stinking pillow!!! Seriously you would think after forgetting about the first one we would get it right the second time around!!! I guess 3rd time will have to be the charm!! And I will make sure the girl tooth fairy comes next time...... pictures to come... Also Matthew is FINALLY calling me Mama!!! Even though I knew that he knew I was his mom, it would really hurt my heart a little every time he called me dada...... So it really is music to my heart and ears to hear him call me mama and pass by pictures and point out his mama..

I read that book. It really made me miss running too. (Not enough to do it, but I sure do miss the way I felt when I ran)

I love/hate the sound of the word momma. It's amazing how much emotion can come from just one word. So glad you get to hear it from your sweet little one.

Good for you on the running thing! I love running too! I am struggling with it right now though because at the beginning of my pregnancy I had NO energy and now that my energy is back up, I find that it's hard because I'm now out of running shape. So, I feel ya girl! :) But we can do it! I know it! :) I did the Salt Lake City 1/2 marathon 2 years ago and am already craving it again. Keep me up to speed on the races you do. If you'd like, after I have my baby (June) I'd love to start training again and it would be fun to do a 5 or a 10k with ya :)

Good for you Tiff! I am so proud of you, you have really worked for everything you have. I wish you all the luck on your running endeavors! I know you can do it! I saw how you lost another 2 lbs, good job! Keep it up!

P.S. I hope you were able to work out babysitting yesterday. Sorry, we didn't get home until 9:30 last night! Talk to you later!

Tiff
You will have a place to stay! I would love to do it with you!
I was planning on doing it with a walk/run plan also! So, how perfect!

I am very worried about training. Because of my stress fracture. But I have been walk/running for a few months now.
What is your program? I would love to be able to keep up with you and complete it together!

I'm do happy he's calling you Mama!! It melts my heart just hearing you tell it. :)

I ran two miles yesterday. Can you believe it? Wow! I even impressed myself. It's only the second time running in almost a year. :)

Nothing melts my heart more than my daughter calling me mom, it's so sweet! My goal is to one day run like the wind, for now I am just trying to get this weight off. Thanks for being an inspiration!
