Ah, I ran, I ran so far away...well, not that far really but I ran!

I need to shout out a thank you to a fellow blogger over at Chicken Knits for a little motivation. She wrote about being inspired to run by "a lady at the gym", and I sure needed some inspiration. So offroad I went...I made it 3 miles - now, I confess didn't run the whole time. I'm excusing myself because I did forget to take a "hit" off of my inhaler before I left and I have a chest cold/ sore throat thing - but man, did it feel good to just try to move my feet after weeks of avoiding running, telling myself "I hate running" - pretty much because I am not too good at it, I usually avoid things I am not good at - my type A personality shining through. I came straight home and signed up for a 5k event my friend has challenged me to do - without of course thinking about finding a babysitter - oops! It will work out - I'm motivated - well, today anyways - thanks blogging friend for commenting on my blog so I could find you!

Another high point - my scarf pal contacted me today to let me know I may be getting my scarf soon - woo hoo!! The suspense is killing me! Meanwhile I am 12 rows away from finishing mine, I will post a picture once it is blocked. *cheer*

You rock! 3 miles is something to be really proud of. Remember it isn't about time. It's all about finishing. At least, that's my motto because I'm slow as slow can be!

Hurry up with scarf - can't wait to see your Liesel. BTW, mine is blocking and am having serious thoughts about knitting one just for me - but in some crazy colours, like neon orange!
