Dear Readers,

Well, I'm finally back in town! Even though I love traveling and seeing all my friends and family, it feels nice one home and back in my own routine.

Speaking of my routine, I've added something new! Since I'm back in town I'm able to participate in FitGirls! I absolutely love it! I was part of the very first group of FitGirls about 5 years ago, and I think the program is fantastic! (Not that I'm at all biased because my mom is in charge of it or anything...) It's been so much fun working with the girls this week and my running capabilities are actually surprising me! I ran a full mile today and afterwards I still felt like I could run more! For someone who prefers an elliptical to a run around the neighborhood, I think that's a pretty good start! (And I say start because it was my first time running! Monday I led the speed walking group.)

All the girls are very sweet and encouraging, and I can't wait to do the Run for the Bagel with them! I even took a picture with some of the girls today, featuring the super awesome book we're reading! I'm having such a great time helping out, but the race is in two weeks and since I just joined the FitGirls team, I may need to do some extra running so I can keep up. That what I'll be working on this week! Becoming someone who (not ALWAYS, but OCCASIONALLY) runs around the neighborhood instead of hopping on an elliptical.
