gettin backintothe runnin' routine

I have been doing a lot of blogging lately, but mostly just recapping all of the fun stuff we have been doing in the hatzung househould. It is time to get back into putting my thoughts, feelings and emotions back into my posts.

I have been feeling rather large lately, as in a heffalump, as in a fatty. 2009 was a hard year for me, my running mojo was absent, ALL YEAR LONG. I think it might have taken a trip overseas!I have been a pretty avid running since I started running cross country my sophomore year of high school.

I am determined to get back into it this year. I have not felt in shape in very long time, and since I will be wearing a white dress in 6 months I'd like to look goooood, as in, "daaaaaaaaamn, she looks goooooooooooooooood".

I have needed new running shoes for months, on dec 31st I finally purchased a new pair. The moment I put them on to run yesterday morning I could feel the difference in having padding and cushion back in my sole...

I have found a few bloggy girls that blog about their running and man alive are they inspiring! All these girls preparing and running in full and half marathons! If they can have full time jobs and a life and train for a marathon then I can run 3-5 miles 3-4 days a week! I am starting out relatively slowly because I don't want to crash and burn. I ran 2.25 miles yesterday and today, I feel a wee bit sore getting back into it all, but more so motivated to keep going. My goal is to log 300 miles in 2010!

I need to get a some warmer running gear...the shorts and tank tops wont work after work when it is dark and cold....

something like this might be in my future...

I can't wait for khloe to get her first set of shots so we can finally take her out on walks and hikes...that should aide in the quest to get my butt back into shape...and not like it's current shape resemblance...a big old ham!

I am hoping to recap on Sundays how many days I actually put my running shoes on and how many miles I logged in,em, maybe sharing withe my bloggy world will keep me accountable.

Goal this week: update my ipod with some lady gaga and black eyed peas to pump up the running mix...oooo, maybe I should also download "pump up the jam, pump it up!", ha

Hey, good luck! I'll be rooting for you :-) If I lived in California and had beautiful weather and scenery to look at I'd run outside all the time :-)
