I love your blog!

I am a SAHM and I have always run off and on but in may I really started it for real along with some friends. My husband has even jumped on the band wagon. It is so much fun with friends and my husband...we've run a 5k and a 10k so far and tomorrow another 5k. I'm so excited to see how I've improved since August when I ran the first one.

I am adding you to my blog role so I can come and see what other moms are doing in their running. It's nice to know that there are other woman out there trying to find the time to squeeze it all in too and still have some time to take care of themselves. Thank you for the encouragement! bye!

It's been a long time since I stopped by your blog (or any blogs, for that matter). Your blog looks amazingly cool! I love, love, love, love, etc. the new picture. So green and beautiful. That's enough for me to pack up and move to Washington!

You are looking great, Tall Mom!
