I Started Exercising Today!

Yup, sure did. I'm feeling it too. So when I wake up in the morning, well, let's just say it could be interesting.

Last weekend, my daughter and son went down to the local track and ran the bleachers. I felt like I should have gone with them, but I was busy on the computer. My baby was awake too, so it just wasn't a convenient time. (Sound familiar? Excuses, excuses.) I really felt guilty about it. I decided I would go with them the next time, no matter what. Well, that day came today.

It turned out to be a family affair. Paul pushed Brady in the stroller while Rachael, Dylan and I ran on the track. Well, I didn't really run. It was more like a walk/jog. A slog. Truthfully, it was more like a shuffle. Paul said to Brady, "Look at the funny Mommy!" I'm just proud I finally got movin'.

In high school, I was on the track team. I loved to run. (Can you believe that?) I wanted to run the shorter sprint events, but I wasn't fast enough. So the coach put me on the cross-country team. I quit track after that year. Long-distance running just wasn't my thing.

Today, after a warm up lap around the track, we headed to the bleachers. Paul had a good laugh watching me. I ran up and down the bleachers four times! Rachael managed seven times, while Dylan did it fourteen times. I just can't believe I'm so out of shape!

With it being Daylight Saving Time, I have decided to go to the track every day after work. "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step". And a few bleachers too.
