Eliza is the class V.I.P. this week, so yesterday I was able to stay in her classroom for a bit, to watch her "present" a poster covered with pictures of everything she loves. The poster that I thought about all weekend, and that we finally put together at six o'clock Sunday night.
I was in my running gear, so once I got home, I grabbed G-unit, and shot out my front door like a bullet. It was so beautiful out, and I was so excited to be moving again. I tried not to look at my pace as I went along, and I felt naked since I wasn't wearing my fuel belt. I had no plan for how long I would go, but about four miles in, hammy started protesting, so I headed home. I finished five miles in just under fifty minutes, and today I feel great!
Great enough to tackle my closet and organize my running clothes, cotton race shirts, tech race shirts, long sleeve race shirts, running shorts and pants, skirt and dress. I tossed three of the six pairs of running shoes in my closet, and kept three sets of inserts. Now we'll see how long I keep it looking the way it does now.
