relish

Last week over on Own It, my sister Liza wrote a great post about relishing in her latest successes. Today I'm going to copy her like always and relish in my success...
I obvi like to tell you about my running ups and downs and def expect you to care a great deal. I know you do.
Well, on Saturday I ran 4 miles in my backyard Central Park to benefit Haiti. I ran with my brother and sister and a couple other friends (the friends started the race up ahead with the fast people).
And................ I was FAST! Serio, I ran my fastest race ever and finished at 43:05.
Yes, that is under 11 minutes per mile. Thank you for noticing and kudos on your math skills.

Yay you! I'm still trying to motivate myself to use the glider sitting in my room at my sister's house. About two weeks ago I realized that if I'd started using it the first of January when I moved in with her, I'd be a few pounds lighter and feeling a lot better by now.

So I'm vowing to start yesterday. I didn't, of course. Maybe I will today. If I don't go to bed as soon as I get home.
