What I've Been Up Too- My January

Once again my blogging has taken a nose dive (I wonder how many of my posts include or start out with the words 'once again'). I feel like I have been at a loss for words and when I do get ready to make  a post I feel like its a constant whine of how slow I am or how I just can't get back to where I was. Well I am still there in that same spot so guess that's the only thing I can write about......But here's a quick catch up! (Who waits until the end of February to write about January??)

*On New Year's Day which is also the hubs and I anniversary we decided to run a 5 mile Resolution Run. What better way to spend your anniversary than running a race together:) I was in no way ready at that time to be running a race let alone a 5 mile race! I was able to stay with the hubs for about a mile and a half then I started falling behind. I walked but not as much as I thought I would have to and some how I pulled off a 46:52 and 3rd in my age group! WOW I was surprised! Hoping that's a sign of good things to come for me this year but time will tell.

*One of my favorite compression socks, CEP was and I think still is for a few more days have a pair a day giveaway on Facebook. I entered one afternoon right before I left work, the next morning I had an email and a few days later I received 
Yep I won!! Another sign  of good things to come for me??

*The end of January the hubs and I ran a 2mi race on a chilly Sunday afternoon
This was a planned race and I really had intentions of "training" a couple of good 2mi runs, did I? Of course not. Thankfully it was a really flat course but it made several turns. I could see the hubs ahead for most of the race until towards the end. I was VERY HAPPY with my finish of 15:52 and
3rd place once again!

*January was fairly good to me. I had some good runs, two good races and lost 4lbs! February hasn't been as nice but I will catch up on that next post!
