I have been in vacation mode ever since I got back from Mexico.  Yesterday was the first day that I didn’t feel lazy.  I had every intention to get in a workout but one of the partners from my law firm gave away his season pass tickets to the St. Louis Cardinals baseball game.  The seats were so good I couldn’t pass it up.  Me, my little sister, my best friend, and my gym cousin went to the game.  It was fun, but freezing cold.  Far too cold for a May night in St. Louis.  We were wrapped in Snuggies, gloves and coats as we braved low 40 degree weather.  But, at least we won the game.

 I decided that I want to run a 10k this summer.   I know that training is something that cannot be rushed.  I printed out some calendars today so that I can make up my training schedule.  I was so inspired by your stories that you shared in my Roll Call post.  You guys are amazing!  You’ve lost so much weight, overcome so many obstacles and become healthier.  I was so inspired that I thought I would go out today and run to week 3 of my podcast.  I called my Little Sister and she said “Come Swoop,” which I figured translates from cool 16-year-old language into regular English as “pick me up on your way.”  She always says I’m “old” when I have her translate things.  Anyway, it’s been so long since I’ve run, that I forgot that week 3 had three minute runs.  I might be able to walk 13 miles  but I certainly could not run for three minutes.  I think next time I will run with week 2.  It sort of feels like starting over, but I guess that’s because I am.  I’ve started over many times, so it’s not really a big deal.  Once I realized that I couldn’t really run the full three minutes, I ran up the giant hill and back down.  That was enough to make me sweat.  After a quick 30 minute workout, I was happy to be moving again in getting back acclimated to real life.
