Such a long, long time

Wow. It's been a long time since I posted anything. Almost two years.

A lot has happened. My children are now 6 and 4. They are now in school. I have been in practice for over 8 years. I went from "full time" to "part time." I've lost 20 pounds. It's been a good couple of years.

At the end of 2006, I started running. I kept up with it long enough to complete a 5K on May 1, 2007. It was painful. 3.1 miles felt like forever. I was completely cashed the rest of the day.

I put my running shoes away until December 2009. I started running again. Over the past 11 months, I have run a 5K, 8K, 10K, and a marathon relay (7.5 miles). I am signed up for my first half in February 2011.

Since I have started running again, I have started reading blogs of other mother runners. I love reading how other women balance family, work, life, running. In leaving a comment on another blog, I had to sign into my Google account. Which led me to here.

Hmmm. Perhaps it's a sign I should give it another go.

Hey there! Welcome back!!!

As for the socks, at the marathon we were wearing compression socks. I dont' know if you've ever tried them, but they're like vices around your calf... never going to slide off (even if you wanted them too, ya feel me?) BUT for every day wear, I just use Reebok All Sport Socks - and they also stay up.

Holy cow! There is actually a comment! I almost fell right out of the chair. Thanks for the information. I may have to give it a try, but I already have ginormous calves to begin with!
