Back To Running

First, thank you all for the tremendous caring and support you've given. It means the world to me. My family and friends, at home and here in blogland, you've helped me get my determination back. Thank you, thank you!

I ran today for the first time in 16 days! It's good to get that over with. Now I can stop worrying if it'll ever happen. I barely had any pain, which is nice. The weird thing was that I kept losing track of my feet/legs. It felt like they were not in sync with the rest of me. I finally did a 30 second walk to get my groove back but I think I'm running like I dance. A little

I did 3.1 in 30:31. No PR, but I will not be complaining today. I saw the doc Monday and he gave me a little something to help me "cope". And it's working BABAYYYYY! I was on the verge of freaking out. Ok, I was deeply into freaking out. Neck deep. It was a mistake to Google "MS". I promised myself not to do that anymore until I have a concrete diagnosis. Or until I think of something I need to check out about it. Which reminds me..............................just kidding!

I go for another MRI in the morning. My husband hates those. I think of them as a little vacation. Doesn't bother me at all.

Easter is Sunday. It's also my 13th wedding anniversary! We're having 14 people over. Reg is coming too! Reg leaves for Canada Monday. I thought it would be a great day for them to come hang out and have a nice visit before they leave. I am going to miss him. Reg and I have become very good friends. He'll be back in November and I'll be waiting with my Asics on!!!!!

Happy Easter everyone!!!!

don't tell Reg it snowed here yesterday, unless of course you want him to change his mind and stay longer LOL. I'm so happy you ran today!!!!!! Good luck on tomorrow's MRI... had many of those too, they don't bother me either. PLEASE PLEASE keep us posted on what's going on :) Hugs.

Good luck with the MRI - do they at least let you bring a CD that they can pipe into your speakers?

On the road again, you are getting on the road again! Yay for you, and glad to know you're back! Keep the spirits up!

Now THERE's the old Kim we know and love!

Good luck with the MRI.


(Man, there's a weird combo, right there! I should toss in "And happy Easter!" just to hit the weird juxtapositional trifecta.)

I'm glad to hear things are working for you again. i was worried for you when you went underground for so long!

To answer the questions you left at my blog:

I have a 5k at the end of this month and another in the middle of next month, the day after my 49th birthday!

I just ran a 5k.

And, finally, the reason the post of mine you looked at said February is because it's THAT old. You were looking at my old (formerly deleted) blog. (Someone else got there, too, somehow ...)

My latest blog post is here.

Speaking of posts, I hope we'll be seeing more of yours now!

Great to have you back, Kim!

I'm so happy to hear you had a good run. I think your time on that run is definitely faster than mine on a good day!!!

Happy Anniversary!

Good luck with the MRI.
