2 miles and birthday wishes

This morning Bill and my mother in law took Nick to the please touch museum so it was me and the baby hanging out. I decided I should try and run and it felt pretty good. I did 2 miles - our a/c wasn't on so it was way too hot to do any longer and I wanted to start out easy. It was slow and steady with a few walk breaks, but felt good!  I really want to swim. I think it's such a great exercise - but I'm going to wait another week or so.

Things are good here - I'm tired, but I think it will be 10x worse next week when Bill starts a new job.   I'm nervous and we had fun together while he was home and I don't want him to go back to work. I wish he was starting after Labor Day.


A belated happy 30th birthday to Bill - on Saturday! Nick helped Bill to open up some presents. And we enjoyed some ice cream cake :)  To Bill: a great husband and dad - Happy birthday!

  1. Great news about Bill's new job - I so didn't want Al to go back to work either especially as he is out of the house for 12 hours with his commute - or longer if the stupid bus driver leaves early like today!

    Well done on the 2 mile run. Great stuff - I'm very jealous, but am practising the art of patience as simply walking leaves me pretty wiped!

    Take care

  12. So...I want to be you. Toddler, newborn, and still knocking out the miles?! Maybe I'll be there someday. :)
