Well then. I worked out again. No joke. A few of the moms got together on a BEAUTIFUL 60 degree weather day for a run. My very first of the year. (again no joke)

track running

After the half marathon last year, my knee and ankle were bothering me. I took some time off. Switched back to older shoes. And the 3 mile run was a success! No knee of ankle pain! I also got to catch up with other moms. I swear there is nothing like talking with another mom about your worries, concerns, or frustrations.

The weather, endorphins, and talk made me feel a MILLION times better

Question for you:

Have you tried anything new this year?

What is something you ate today?
