So I found my niche

Endomondo Running Workout: was out running 1.36 miles in 27m:22s using Endomondo.

I had only been running a mile in that time. Considering that I am a couch potato, that is pretty effing good. It was a goal of mine to hit 1.25 miles in 30 minutes before the new year. Lucky for me, I started 2 weeks ago so it is NOT a New Year's resolution. I HATE people who make resolutions . Resolutions NEVER last.

We had Fred's friends over for New Year's Eve. We listened to music, gossiped, told stories, and enjoyed way too much beer/wine/malt beverages and finger food. All in all, it was awesome. We hugged and wished each other a happy new year. Undoubtedly, everyone was wishing for a much better year than the previous. At least, I know I was. It's been a rough year with quitting smoking and drinking. I'm facing my depression head on...and winning! I've felt sooo much better since I've started running. I'm running 3 days a week with weight lifting and yoga in between. I've never felt more alive. I'm more focused at work. I'm smiling more and just letting my freak flag fly. Today's an off day and I am just resting up my runner's knee. Never fun stuff. Although, I always get a chuckle when I tell people that I got a "hitch in my giddy-up". I'll be back up and running tomorrow though. No rest for the wicked. I still have miles to go.
