the run


So I've been wanting to get back in shape for a while now, but somehow things keep getting in the way. Isn't that how it always happens? So many excuses...

Well anywho, yesterday I decided no more excuses, so I took Astro for a run. Man, were we a sight to see. I can't tell you the last time I ran. There's nothing like having your dog actually pull you along while you run, worse part though, he was walking. Actually, that's nothing compared to me trying multitask - trying to keep my ear buds from falling out, hold my iPhone in one hand, Astro's leash in the other hand, trying to wipe a runny nose and spit plastered on my face - all while running. Those are the times I really hope no is watching me. I mean, spit on my face. Hot mess, let me tell you.

The high school me would definitely kick my ass right now! Somehow I turned into a wimp.

  2. I've been making plenty of excuses for working out lately too. I just don't have the push I need yet to use what little free time I have to get out and run. Oh... and I've definitely had a spit plastered face while running before. It's beautiful! (:

    Way to take the first step!!

It's what's gotten me through! alsooo....you should check out the Workout genre on Pandora... preferably the Dance cardio! Music really gets me pumped, it's the best!!!

  4. Good for you for at least getting out there and doing it! I don't even remember the last time I went for a run. Pretty sure it was sometime in February or March.

  5. I'm in the same situation. I want to get back into running/working out but I feel like there's not enough time in the day (and I can't seem to pull myself off the couch). We should do some kind of buddy plan...distance buddy plan of course, lol.

    Good luck getting back in the swing of things!
