Good Morning!

Wow! I can't beleive we are already starting to look at the month of May.  This is crazy...didn't the year just start a couple weeks ago?  Needless to say, I've been a busy little beaver which is why I've been absent for the past month and a half.  School has been especially draining and time-consuming but that's what you get for taking the maximum number of credits, working a full-time job and still trying to be fabulous!!

So, other than the constant school/work monotany, I have been able to get in a couple runs here and there. I ran the Gumbo Limbo Turtle 10k race a couple weeks ago and all I can say is I would much rather run another half marathon in 30 degree weather than run a 10k in swelting 80 degree weather. The heat and humidity has started to make its way back to So Flo and, although I am looking forward to catching some rays in my lovely pool, it will be difficult to force myself to get out there and continue running. I am thinking of signing up for another half marathon in Oct/Nov just to give myself the motivation to keep up with running.

The weight loss continues...thank goodness and although it is a very slow process for me, I feel slow and steady will win the race in the end and, hopefully, by taking it slow I can keep it off for good. I am in the home stretch now and can finally catch a glimpse of the finish line. Yippee!!

So, on that note, it's time to do all my household chores, laundry, etc. I will try to catch up on everyone's blogs, too. But first, I think a trip to McDonalds for an iced coffee is called for...it's been over a week and I feel the withdrawals!
