Giving it a try & Thanks

The other day I saw this on facebook by Barefoot AngieB (be sure and check out her blog) and thought it was cute, then I realized it applied to me as well! So here goes:
                 My name is Bobbie and I haven't gone for a run in one week!!
WHY??!! My excuse is the HOT & STEAMY weather we have been having. Even at night and early mornings it has been so humid its hard to breathe. I am not happy with myself for not running at all, not even a little, but I guess all runners' need a break sometime or another.  I also posted the other day that I have been getting up and walking around my neighborhood and didn't really think I was ready to try to run it. Thinking about this comment from that post I decided to give it a try this morning!

the hills are great for you, try the run walk approach to get used to them and you'll be powering along in no time

Actually I did a lot better than I thought and it wasn't near as bad as I thought it would be. No I wasn't able to Run the whole loop but I am guessing I ran about 3/4ths of it! So THANK YOU Amanda for making the comment and giving me the encouragement I needed to go ahead and give it a try!! Be sure to check out Amanda's great blog as well!
Be sure to enter my giveaway HERE there is only a couple of more days left!!
