Back to running!

The weather was perfect today (it has been an unusually warm and wet winter for us in the Southeast). Rex and I took advantage of it and headed out to the trails with the dog. Since we're just getting back into training mode we took it pretty easy. The dog has to have a chance to work up his endurance too, so I paid careful attention to him. Dogs won't tell you they are hurting or are out of energy, so be very mindful if you want to run with your dog.

All in all it was a great time! Rex needs to make a visit to a doctor for his feet, but we knew that was coming and he's working on it. This half marathon is great motivation :)

Happy New Year!

Now that the holidays are officially over, the feasts eaten, gifts bought, opened, and possibly exchanged or returned and alcohol consumed, we now look forward to the new year and hope for a fresh start in more ways than one. This has been a rough year for a lot of people for a lot of reasons, but I think the reason we keep making resolutions is because we'd like things to be better. We're creatures who hope for better. In the spirit of clean slates, we vow to do things like make more time for family,exercise more, lose weight, and become more financially responsible. I hope everyone manages to meet at least some of their resolutions.

For those who have made fitness or weight loss related resolutions, I have compiled a few articles here to help you get started. Happy new year!!

It's one thing to say you'll run more. It's another to actually commit and register for a race. Set a goal by finding a race here.

Good luck!
