get up, get out, and run!

oh...i love running. since i had macrae, i have been trying to get back into it. but mostly, i don't feel fast enough to join my old running buddies. so, this past week and a half, i have really been pushing myself. i even made myself commit to two different people to run in the mornings. thankfully, they agreed even though they both know my condition (i mean, lack of conditioning).

yesterday i ran with my aunt, margaret, and she freaking kills me. why? oh...she's at least 5 inches shorter than me (picture her stride) and yet, she is at least a minute or two faster per mile...let that sink in for a minute...she kills me. she ROCKS! oh, and today i ran with erika and we ran this or i should say, she ran this and challenged me to sprint the last hill. which caused me to get dizzy and think i might die on the hill (at least a 10% grade, here people, i'm no wussy. i only think i'm going to die for really really good reasons). so, she killed me too. um, thanks Erika for meeting me this morning! i sooo needed it! my goal is to keep up with you.

I've ran that trail before, and it is HARD! You can be happy you are atleast in better shape than me. If that makes you feel any better.?. There is no way I could run even 2 miles let alone 4-5 miles. You are doing awesome Anna!

Hey Anna: I love having a running partner again. I have missed you.
And by the way, I meant did I kill you as in was that hill hard not did I beat you back to the church.
Hope to see you on Tuesday.
