I know I haven't posted in a while. Nothing much is going on here, except the sometimes feelings of hopelessness. I know that everyone has these feelings, I am not saying I am depressed, just a little blue. There is no reason, nothing that I can think of anyway, just right now how I feel. Here is a picture I took today right before my first real run. It was my first run off of the treadmill and I thought it was going to kill me. I know that it will get easier, I just hope it hurries the heck up.

So, this is my attempt at being silly. Yes, those are soccer socks, yes, I am playing again although I don't start until end of May, yes I know I have my work cut out for me and yes, I know I have lots more weight to lose.

Here is a picture from my bike ride the other day. My friend Grace and I attempted to ride at Monocacy Park before we realized you couldn't. Anyway, here is a picture of the waterfall, that my sister Rockle and her husband had their wedding photo taken in front of I think 11 years ago.

That's all I have today. That's it. I am hopefully getting out of this apartment and going to see one of my friends, but then I will come back here and do lots of wifely duties. Oh, and FYI hubs and I are moving officially June 1st to a 2 bedroom apartment in the same complex. We get the keys May 15th so that we can start moving stuff in and so that we have time to clean this one and everything. Hopefully, this means better things.

Running Tuesday

Today is running Tuesday. I am going to start keeping up with the Jones per Se, except that I am keeping up with Skinny Runner. Tuesdays for her are Running Tuesday, and I get jealous of where she gets to run. So, here is my version...

While I wish I would get to run here....

Instead I get to run here

(I like how it looks like no one is even running here, and I like how the TV screens are so large. I wish my LA Fitness looked like this one.)
Hopefully today I will get in 2 miles, but I am also going to start focusing on some weight training. Not necessarily to bulk up, but to start to tone my muscles.

And, like Skinny Runner (who I apologize I don't even know her real name) always asks, where are you running today?

In 3 short months our family will be reuniting at one of our favorite past times. We will be coming from near and far and meeting at one special location. We will swim to an island, go to the rec barn for some shuffle board, swim of the rocks, go to Foxy's and eat mud pies, heck we might even go to see Boldt castle. All of this and more, while we are doing this...

Yep, we will be camping! We love it. We used to do it all the time, then as we grew up we stopped going. Hoping this year will rekindle the magic of said camping. Oh, and yep, I am ready. I have the tents up airing out and making sure that there are no leaks or rips. We already got rid of one tent because it had seen better days. I will be sleeping in one of the tents tomorrow, I figured since the tents were up, I might as well enjoy their company.
