Why Not?



I am buried in school, work and life and I am still PATIENTLY resting my feet. So over the whole rest thing!

Yesterday as I was walking in the parking lot pushing my shopping cart I felt the breeze and then before I knew it I was running. That's right I started running in the parking lot. It was like my mind didn't have a chance to stay stop. It felt great. Just feeling my body move, hearing the sound of my feet and feeling the cold breeze. DREAMY!! I did think for a moment that maybe I could do some laps with the cart (why not add in some resistance training) but had to get to my class I was teaching. I am sure I looked like a dork mom running in the parking lot.

Just a reminder to me that OPPORTUNITY is everywhere...sometimes you just have to get creative.

Tomorrow I am in the pool for P.T. and determined to start February out with some miles even if I have to stop by a vacant parking lot.

HAPPY SHOPPING!! (Running)

There was a shopping cart in my neighborhood and I was thinking of grabbing it on my way out to run and running it back to the store. I could only imagine the odd looks I would have gotten. I do have to say that running in the parking lot with a shopping cart that has my kids in it and their look of joy is a happy moment. :)

LOVE it! Sometimes I randomly run in the parking lot, or even through the store or my office. Feels so gooooood!

That probably did look hilarious! Hope that foot feels better soon.
