Triumphant Return

Well, I ran today. Finally. I've been prepping for my "triumphant return" (as my husband calls it) all week with some time on the elliptical Monday and Wednesday and a pilates workout on Thursday (still pleasantly sore from that :))

I'm back!!

After almost three months of dreadfully missing the roads, I have returned. And running welcomed me back like an old friend - legs were light and swift, pace was steady, breathing was smooth, and my face was joyous. I covered 2.25 miles in about 23 minutes or so. 

Couldn't pass up the op for a photo with my two girls - sometimes I have to pinch myself to remind myself that I'm a mother of two. 

I'm now scouring the racing calendars and hoping to pencil in a few races in this coming spring. Nothing major, but something to keep me focused. Maybe Shamrock again, maybe not. Let's just say that if that bugger sells out before I can register, I won't shed any tears. But it might be fun to kick off my return to racing with a crowded, no pressure, fun-filled event.

So exciting! I hope the roads continue to treat you well, and you find a great race. You are in a good place for that!
