Running from Nothing

Well, I am offiicially addicted to something other than knitting and yarn...It's running...

I actually came home tonight from work excited to get on my tennis shoes and go for a run.

Now, I'm not running a marathon, not yet anyway, and I'm certainly not running as fast as my youngest son (he just ran a mile in 6:02), but I'm running...and it feels GREAT!!!

Tonight I hit the 3 mile mark with my run, which is what I have been working up to. I'm still walking for 5 minutes when I first start to get my legs moving and the blood flowing, and tonight I ran for 36 minutes S-T-R-A-I-G-H-T!!!! I know! I was really excited.

To reward myself when I started running, I got a great new running skirt. I got a great one that is actually Zebra striped with pink trim, but I have this one too.I absolutely love SkirtSports and think that they are a wonderful company. I now have 4 of these and I love them. I don't know what it is about them, but I just feel like I run better when I have it on. It's a great feeling. The company is awesome and their products are great! When I am running a bit more, I'll reward myself with another new item from their collection.

So, now I am off to knit since I have cooled off from my run. I'm making progress on my Lucky socks, the March installment of the Rockin' Sock Club. I love the yarn and I'm really digging the pattern, now that I have figured out the LeftLeaningIncrease and the RightLeaningIncrease, which I was doing wrong at first.
