Sleep and the virtues of....

So it's been a while since I've posted any pictures. It's your unlucky day, because I'm still not going to post any.

Yesterday was a huge day for me. I broke my first 5K mark on the treadmill. It took me a looooong 6 months to get there and I must admit that I was bored for most of the runs, but at least now I KNOW that I can run it. If ever I'm being chased down by a crazy psychopath with rubber arms, I can run to safety. Phew.
I'm pretty sore and not really looking forward to repeating that feat 4 times a week. But whatever. And I guess downing a half loaf of fresh baked bread with jam and butter might counter the effect of the 5K, but for the first time in my life, my aim is not to drop some extra pounds. Sure I may not be as graceful as the other gazelles who share the cardio room, but heck, if Tonka here can run it- so can YOU!
While it has certainly repelled me to the Very White Stratosphere, I've been "enjoying" every New Balance step.

p.s- Both kids slept in until 8h15 am TWO days in a row now. Take that Sarah!

Hey! Rubber arms are freaking frightening, okay? TERRIFYING. Just wait, you'll see.
