Back at it

Woo! So many of you know I commute via train into work everyday. I'll have you know I haven't had to do any train sprints lately, been rocking on that front! Sorry Jocelyn, no more "thanks Mr. Train conductor man, now I can marathons" moments! Anyways, for the past couple of months blogger hasn't let me update from my blackberry. But today I tried and look! Here I am on the train updating my bloggity blog. Victory.
So although I haven't been posting much I have started running and cross training again since surviving the sickness. You can see my progress in the side bar to the right. Went for my first 3.3 mile (such an odd number right? But I feel like that .3 counts for something) run in a long time (since my injury? 4..5 months?) this weekend and it felt so good. I'm very excited, a good friend from high school sent me a message the otherday, she's training for a half marathon at the beginning of May in Long Branch, NJ! Guess who is going to aim to do it? This gal. Can't wait, I'm so excited. Now if only I can start getting enough sleep so I can squeeze in long runs before those train sprints in the morning. Gotta love the train sprints.
On another note, I miss Lydia terribly. And I'm driving up to Rochester with Jocelyn this weekend for some fun!!! Joc, maybe we can run together this weekend? Yay? Nay?
Tonight I'm going to see the Harlem Globetrotters, wahoo!

Hope everyone enjoyed their St. Patricks day!!

Sexy! Congrats on your runs improving. Sure we can run this weekend, but not far because Monday is a 9 mile run for me so I can't over do it...and I'll have to see how my blisters are.
<3 you

Ahh rochester!! Its supposed to be really nice this weekend so you guys should definitely get a run in outside!

Glad you are starting to run again - just in time for all the good spring weather!!

Good luck with your running!

I had major hip issues when I first started running. My 1st marathon was so painful. But I added yoga into my routine for my 2nd marathon and I cut an entire HOUR off my time and was injury free.

Here's some unsolicited advice: Take it slow and increase your distance slowly. And try not to run 2 days in a row. And yoga!
