This morning I hit the pavement for the first time in about a year and a half and it felt SO AMAZING.
Scott was working from home this morning so I put Campbell down for a nap, threw my shoes on, selected my favorite playlist and took off. It was so nice to be able to do something good for myself. The weather was cool and foggy which made for the perfect backdrop. Since it's been so long since I've gone for a run, I predicted I wouldn't make it far--at all. I was pretty proud of myself for managing to get through 3 songs before I had to slow down and walk instead. I would love to think I'll be able to do this every morning but that's completely unrealistic. It just so happened to work out perfectly for me to be able to do it today. I have really missed running though so hopefully I can figure out a way to do it a couple of times a week. I definitely got a runners high this morning and now I'm craving more. Although I'm sure I'm going to be super sore tomorrow.
Yesterday my Mom and I met in Ozark (halfway between Bentonville and Little Rock) so I could pick up Grace. My parents are traveling and I always watch Grace while they're away. The girls are excited to be reunited again and it was nice being able to see my Mom. Campbell came with me, of course, and we all sat in the car for about 2 hours hanging out. Mom and I meet up like this a few times a year and we always talk to each other the entire way there, eat lunch and hang out for a bit, then talk the rest of the drive back. It's our little thing and I kind of like it!


  1. You'll have to sign up for a 5K in the next few months! I love signing up for a race or two in the fall because it's extra motivation :)

    1. Great idea! I just asked my dad if he wants to run the Turkey Trot with me in LR on Thanksgiving. If he's in, I'm in!
