I'm back! I know... it's been awhile. Not an intentional blog break, but this school year so far has been
insane interesting. One starting middle school and one in the all important junior year... soccer, tumbling, swimming and basketball, dance, play rehearsals, girl scouts, back to school nights, PTA volunteering, substitute teaching, pep squad, football games, and this week there is homecoming hoopla. C.R.A.Z.Y. But, mostly fun crazy, and I haven't just been running kids around...
Some of you OA old timers may remember the posts Run Kelly Run, Confession Friday and T.G.I.F. when I discussed my quest to complete the Couch to 5k running program. And I am happy to report that in the midst of all this CHAOS, I am ONE... yep, ONE run away from graduation! I have even managed a few outdoor runs, no small feat considering we are STILL hitting 98 degree highs on a regular basis.

Some weeks I run once, some weeks 3 times, and some weeks not at all... but I have persevered and pushed through no matter HOW miserable... and let me say, some days are MISERABLE. Today, towards the end of my run, my Pandora radio was playing "Stairway to Heaven", which depending on your age you may or may not remember is the longest freaking song in the history of the world and the song we always knew to request last at every school dance... and today I was PRAYING for that stupid song to hurry up and get up that stairway as I'm sure our chaperones were 30 years ago.
Yeah, I pretty much still hate to run... and I am definitely NO speed demon. But I look forward to celebrating my graduation with you, and I'm even maybe considering moving on to the Couch to 10K. If that's the case, I'm thinking I need to find a new Pandora station...
