Pounding the Pavement

I went running tonight. First time since last summer. This is how it went. . .

Did I stretch before the run? Yes.
Did I stretch enough? No.
Did I feel like dying? Yes.
Did I die? No.
Did I have to stop and walk a little bit? Yes.
Did I give up? No.
Did I wear the right clothing? Yes.
Did I look as good as the celebs do while running? No.
Did I sweat like the celebs? Yes.
Did I really care what I looked like ultimately? No.
Did I eat too much pasta for dinner? Yes.
Did I puke? No.
Did I consider puking so I would have an excuse to quit? Yes.
Did I quit? No.
Did I give it my all and then some? YES.
Could I have done it if I was still a smoker? ABSOLUTELY NOT.

My smoke free lungs did it! I did it! I am so proud of myself. It wasn't far. Maybe 1.5 miles, but I did it. I can't wait to do it again. When I ran cross country in high school I could run 9 miles. Since having Kam I stopped running. No more excuses for this girl. It is on!


  1. I love it! Great job girly! Running gives you a feeling like not much else. I run a mile everyday and I love it.
    Kam looks awesome on his new bike! You're an awesome mom!!

  2. I am so proud of you for not smoking!!! :) Maybe one day we will live close enough to be running partners!

  3. Kelsey I had no clue you were a runner. I always wondered how you had a cooking blog and stayed skinny. :) and shaylise that would be fun! I drove it today and it was 1.8 miles! Woo hoo!
