Never mind!

My body played a trick on me. It wasn't until the 2nd day after my ten miler that I felt it! Ahh! I hobbled around the whole day in pain. I guess I spoke too soon! haha I feel much better today though so hopefully I'll have time to hit the gym for some weights and cross training on the elliptical.

Has anyone checked out Amy's blog lately? She is totally rocking it out and flying past PR after PR. Yay Amy!!

I didn't fall off the face of the earth.....

I've been "blog" dodging for a few weeks...but I haven't quit running! I did a bunch of 2, 3, and 4 mile runs for a couple weeks after the HM - but nothing major.

Last night I got the itch and the motivation to get out there and do a big one. I ran 10 miles and barely noticed. It's amazing what a few weeks of rest will do. I'm not even sore today which is a shocker too. My right hip has been throbbing for about a week but that's not any worse than it was. The humidity was about the only thing slowing me down last night but it was OK. Everytime I felt tired and wanted to walk, I just thought about my big sister and how I'm sure she has felt the same way and didn't I shouldn't either. : ) Thanks for motivating me without even being there, Amy! The first few miles were rough and I felt like I was a flailing (sp?) idiot that's never walked, much less ran before. After I got into my zone though things went well. I walked about a mile of it total, here and there.

That's about it for I have to get busy catching up on all of your blogs!
