Well, it is cooler today. We had some really good storms come through last night. I got my lawn half mowed. I didn't know that there were storms coming until my neighbor stuck her head out the door and yell to me about hail.
I have never really said much on here, but today I'm in the mood to type. I didn't get out to run this morning so I have a lot of pent up energy. I m training for a marathon. I have been running up to 8 miles a day for the past couple weeks. There is the Country Music Half Marathon next April and the Pittsburgh Marathon next May. I have found that this is the best way to treat depression. It has something to do with the chemicals that are released that make you really happy. I'm not fast anymore, but I am working on it. I am working on 26 minutes or better for a 3.1 mile (5K) run. If I can get my running down to a 10 minute mile I'll be happy. I used to run a 7 minute mile but that seems like a lifetime ago. It is going to take time but it is coming with work.
I am a stay at home mom of 6 kids, including my DH, so I have the time to run. I am currently looking for a job, preferably from home, but am having trouble. I got in trouble with the state of KY and ended up with a felony on my record, which isn't helping much, so is really hindering my job hunt. Not to mention that I am no longer allowed to lift over 20-25 pounds, according to my doctor.
