You Hear That?

I noticed something while running without my music recently.  The swoosh of my thighs rubbing together!  Ugh!   My name is Kit and my spandex is a little tight.  There, I said it!

I also came to another realization.  I have a long way to go!  I'm running about 2.5 miles right now.  As I was huffing and puffing down the road today, I thought how in the world am I going to do 26.2 miles?!  That is an overwhelming goal.  Then I reel myself back in and remind myself of baby steps.  First off, I have run every day scheduled on my plan.  That is awesome! Plus, I have a lot of training ahead of me.  Not like I'm running a marathon next month!

And I will take a camera with me the next time I run.  I busted out laughing at the cows today.  As I ran by, they looked up at me, grass hanging out of their mouths, with this "what in the heck?" look on their face.  I have to get a picture of it.

I took a picture with my phone of the sun setting as I finished my run this evening.  The cell camera just doesn't do it justice.


  1. Baby steps is right darlin'! You are improving your health and fitness every time you get out there and that's awesome! I've gained 12 lbs as of this morning..........that's since March........OUCH! I'm hoping to start clawing my way back outta the hole today though, starting with heading out for a jog here in about 15 min! Thanks for the inspiration girl, and just keep on pickin' 'em up and layin' 'em down, you'll get there! HUGS!

  2. You will get there and when you do it will be worth the sweat and tears! I am routing for you! Still a nice sunset picture!

  3. Oh, I love running by cows! I always wonder what's going through their heads as they see runners and cyclists going by!

    Good for you for the baby steps--- it's what counts in the long run (hardy har har)! : )

  4. Love the pic. Good for you that you have set a goal and are working towards it! I have decided that I am going to start running again - not for any training regime but just for exercise and to get rid of the all of jiggles. The farm where we board our horses has a 1/2 mile graded conditioning track that is perfect. Now I just have to get my butt in gear...
