My first run in over a year!!


Today is a very special day. 

I ran for the first time in over a year!!!!!

Yup, you read that right. For the past year I have been nursing bum feet (I will leave out the details because it is incredibly boring - even I find it boring).

My tootsies have been on the mend but very, very slowly.

But today I had that restless feeling I used to get when I really needed a run. If you run regularly you know what I mean. 

I strapped on my running shoes and just started jogging. It felt WONDERFUL!! 

I only ran for 1/4 of a mile or so and it was a walk/jog/walk/jog kind of pace but still - I went for a run:-)

How did I celebrate when I got home?

Balega Enduro running sock [source]

I ordered some new running socks. The Balega socks are my absolute favorite and I didn't realize until this morning that I have worn through the heel on almost every single pair.

My post workout meal:

A pink lady apple, a spinach salad with blueberries and a black cherry yogurt.

This little salad really hit the spot.

One of my favorite brands of yogurt - they are not too sweet.

And something weird was going on with Blogger today. I got an error message when I uploaded my morning post. Now that post is not showing up blogger stats but I can see it from my webpage. 

Odd, very odd. So if my morning post isn't showing up for you just click here.  

*update* the morning post is showing up on my end now - I guess blogger is just slow today.


  1. congratulations! i just started running myself after a long break. it feels good to that. i have heard of balega socks before but never tried them. maybe i should check it out:) thanks for sharing this post.

  2. Congrats on being able to run again, that's wonderful!
    Sometimes my post goes up, but doesn't seem to get to the dashboard/readers for people until hours later. Very strange.

  3. Good for you. I can relate to this as my daughter had to be off exercise for 2 years. Was a horrible experience. Shots and rehab and alternative therapies. Longest 2 years of her life. She went for a run the first time and was so happy. She is horseback riding again and playing soccer. So I can imagine how happy you were. So happy for ya. xx
