Could it be possible?

Believe it or not, I was able to go for another run on saturday with the baby angel in her stroller. The weather has been perfect and the foot has been very tolerable. Both the baby angel and I love the time and energy while we are out taking in everything the world has to offer us in our little world. She usually nods off at the halfway point so I take it easy going in and out of the sidewalk entryways. I think I may start to make plans for more regular runs now, still not pushing it. I had big plans to do lots of races this fall in honor of my dad and family but the injury killed those plans. We shall see what happens now.

The house was filled with sickies all weekend so I was the only one getting things done with both kiddos in tow. Was awesome though to spend the whole weekend with the family and was really a great bonding time for all. The little angel is starting to crawl more and more with a strong urge to be free and like her big brother, which is so cute and loving.

Love and hug your loved ones every chance you get. Live everyday to the fullest.

light at the end of the tunnel

I can only begin to describe the feeling I had when I ran some on saturday morning while taking the little angel for a walk. We went for a 3 mile walk/run that was so great and wonderful that I almost sang and danced on the way home. Luckily for people driving by I didn't but I was doing the jig on the inside. The little angel really enjoys her walks outside and then slept the half way home. The foot hurt some later that day but I did some icing and stretching that made it tolerable. I am so excited about running again but need to take it very easy and I am not going to push it at all. To make matters even better, the beautiful angel wife went for a run the next morning which I have never seen or thought of as possible. She is really enjoying losing weight and getting back in shape as she has been going to a boot camp at the Y three morning a week while I get everyone up and going for the day. She has three more weeks left I think and we shall see where she goes from there.

The big boy had outpatient surgery on friday that went very well and he is getting back to normal which is very nice. We relaxed at home all weekend to let him heel while we spend some much needed family time. Nothing like a long weekend at home doing nothing but spending time together to fuel the soul. The weather was absolutely perfect all weekend especially in the mornings when I am up and getting the small things done around the house. Little angel is starting to explore all around her and will crawl some if her big brothers toys are within view. Time to start baby proofing! Still no teeth for her though but she is as cute as can be and has me wrapped around her fingers.

Lots of prayers and thoughts for my cousin Tracy fighting her cancer. Love you.
