I've been MIA this fall in Blogland, and my posts haven't been very decor inspired either. I'm sorry folks. I will be back, I just changed focus for a bit. Since both my kids started school I have had this 2 hour window in the morning that I promised myself I would use to focus on me, me, me
(and some badly needed housework.)
So back in September I started going back to the gym and took up running. Now, I have never been a runner. I did track and field in 8th grade and wound up doing discus because I hated to run. I would get this awful metallic taste in my mouth and felt like my beet-red head was about to explode every time I did it.
This time I started slow, doing intervals and suddenly was able to run 3 miles with out stopping. Feeling inspired I pirated into my husband's 1/2 marathon last month and got through 10 miles. High on life I signed myself up for the OBX 1/2 marathon next week, while my husband runs the full one.
I can't believe I'm saying this but I love running! I actually get excited and look forward to a long run and the bonus is those last 10 lbs are finally budging. Needless to say, I have been spending all my non-kid moments on running or clients and not on my blog or my own projects. My office is a mess and I find myself avoiding it. I will be back because blogging and creating things makes me happy, and I am starting to have withdrawals from spray paint and blue tape. Stay tuned!
