My first born started his first day of Kindergarten today. He will be going to school all day everyday. Did I cry? Not one tear! I was giddy with excitement as I pulled out of the school's parking lot. I know it sounds cruel but he was sooooo exited to go to school. How can I be sad about that? He was even fighting me taking pictures of his first day. I made him pose with his new Hulk back pack. He just rolled his eyes. I didn't realize the attitude started at 6 years old.
Since we are starting fresh with a new school year, I am starting up the routine of getting up before the birds again. I think I am going to have to force myself to do it for 21 days so it is a habit. Today was my first day. I got up (later than I hoped) and went for a 2.2 mile run/walk. To celebrate my first official day, I thought I would run my first whole mile to set the tone.
I jumped on board to do the Virtual One Mile Race. I suited up and headed out with G-Man. I ran the first mile and did it in 10:55. Not bad for not running any distance for a few months. I am back to walking though I will be infusing some running.
I am glad I went for a run this morning because I am starting to lose the feeling of being a runner. I was starting to ask myself why people do it? Once thoughts like that start infiltrating the brain, it is all down hill from there. I am not too far gone yet, because when I was done with my mile, I felt great and was happy that I was able to do it.
Another busy day today. I am hoping to catch up on my blog stalking and figure out how to get into these damned swimming lessons!
