A Visit from Tall Mom

My fave pic I took of Mel in February
Mel stopped by my house yesterday and we got to chat for an hour or so.  She held Goober most of the time, so it was a nice break for my arms (I swear, babies are great weight training equipment!).  We talked about running and goals for the new year, and I told her I'd be back to being her running buddy soon.  My health is still not in tip top shape, and so I haven't got the go-ahead to start training again...

Oh goodness, I can't WAIT to start running again for so many reasons.  My Newtons are dying to be used and go fast!  My Garmin Gus is feeling really neglected.  I miss my Bald Eagle buddy, Sam, on the trail.  I need to run off the stress and just have some "me" time.  I haven't "raced" since last year (ugh!).  There's a new Brooks long sleeve top that is itching to be worn for the first time (thanks, Mel!).  And I want to feel strong again.

Plus, I miss my running buddies!
Ah, soon.

Shout out to Coach was his birthday yesterday!  Woot!  Happy Birthday, Uncle!
