Day One

I went for a hard run yesterday. It was early. It was dark. It was hard. I must have passed four mailboxes before I had to slow to a labored walk. Just kidding. Not really - that did happen. But I did run more after that. It was still dark when I got home, which is just wrong. Today I hurt. Everything hurts. That I'm not kidding about.

My friend is a mother of two and just finished her first marathon. She ran for over four hours - STRAIGHT! Another person I "know" is training for his first marathon to raise money for cancer research. His teenage son was diagnosed with Burkitt's Lymphoma. I have two other friends who are moms of lots of kids and they run in the morning before dawn as well. I find inspiration in there and it's enough to get me out there. I can do this. Plus - I want to buy this really cute pair of pants.

So, this will be my diary of sorts. My accountability. I know not many people actually read this blog - so I'm not really accountable to anyone but myself, but somehow writing down makes it real.

Check back for Day 2 soon.

Guess she changed her mind.

I knew she'd come back.

That's it. I'm outta here.

Some days are harder than others around our place.

Apparently today was particularly difficult for Isabelle.

She headed down the country road looking for a better life.

Her daddy said she just needed a guitar over her shoulder to complete the look.

Look at this cute punk. Can you see it in her eyes?? It's there...look closely!

My firstborn.

Here's Nathan hangin' in the alley. Looking for the urban feel here. :)

Isabelle has such an independent style. She's so cool.

My sweet, sweet boy. He has his Papaw's blue eyes.
