Make a Comeback

Excuse me while I dust off this page...

HELLO!!!!  The sun is coming back, and so am I.  As April finally appears to be letting spring in, I'm finally returning to some of the things I love: running, drawing, reading, and BLOGGING!  Time for new posts, new dares, new updates, and more.  In the fall and winter, I was feeling beat and fatigued, and blogging was simply not my priority. This time away has made me miss writing, dares, and you, so I'm back!

And with new toys!

I'll be bringing a combination of dares for you and updates from life over the past few months as I catch up.  While I don't think I've taken on any new huge challenges since the fall, I've been working on maintaining the dares I began way back when, and maintenance matters.

One thing thing that I did not maintain was running.  After my first 10k race in September and then backing off when I was sick, I simply stopped running.  It got cold, and after months off it, the treadmill just didn't feel like a good option.  I did ease back in to exercising (I've been doing BODYPUMP once-twice/week), but not running.

This week, the sun was shining and the temperature passed 50, so I laced up and hit the road.  It certainly was a "first run back" and I struggled at times, but it also felt great to be out in the open air again, flying on my feet with the sun on my face.  I don't always love running, but I do love running outside.

That was Monday, and I hit the road again this morning.  Both times were a steady jog (about 11-min/mile pace), and I had to stop and walk a few times, but I have faith that I'll regain my endurance and (moderate) speed with time.  Spring, I'm ready for you!

And I promise I'll keep updates here :)

Happy Spring!
