Wings On My Feet

This week, I started running. It actually started because I really enjoy working out with my husband, but he hates going to the gym after work. So, Monday we ran together and took with Buckley with us. It was a beautiful day, but let me just say my breathing was not. Tuesdays, the hubs has Bible Study, so Buckley and I went. I figured it was either the gym or outside in the beautiful weather. And, Buckley was waiting for me to do something fun with him... that dog loves good weather. That run went much better. I even came home and did an Abs work out on On Demand.

So, last night, it was pretty chilly again and the wind was making its presence known... and it looked like it was going to rain at any second. So, I decided that I would just go to the gym... until I pulled out my running shoes... and Buckley went nuts... something like this video (Only the video is when I asked him if he wanted to go play with my mom's dogs, Keric and Allie. Please excuse my baby voice... it scared me when I heard it.)

Anyways, needless to say.... we went for a run... How can you turn that excitement down? I mean he knows what shoes mean that we are going for a run...

And, I got home and did my Ab work out again. I felt great. And, I actually ran as much as the hubs ran on Monday without stopping. Now, I may call myself crazy here in about a month, but I even considered the possibility of training to do a 5 K... which isn't that long, but I have never done any kind of running.

I can completely understand why people get hooked on running. Especially because in the beginning its so easy to see improvement. And when the improvement isn't so obvious anymore, you probably do it because of the addiction to being in shape. I used to go to the gym religiously because if I didn't I felt terrible. I obviously got out of that routine. So, I can see how it happens.

Anyways, I may feel completely different after our cruise in May, but for right now... I am addicted to running. And, I am pretty sure Buckley is too.

OMG, your baby voice is NOTHING compared to mine! If anybody heard the way I talk to Norma Jean, I would die of profound shame lol!

I totally hate working out (and it shows!), but props to you for making yourself work out like that. You always look fantastic though. :)
