For most of my childhood and teenage years I was a dancer. I started dance when I was 2 years old and did it all the way through high school. My Senior year, I got too wrapped up in my boyfriend and decided it wasn't important anymore and quit. One of the biggest mistakes of my life. For years since, I have felt that a piece of me was missing. I was in love with dance in a way that you would love another person. I still get chills watching great dancers! Seeing the scar tissue on my toes from toe shoes actually makes me nostalgic! I never thought I would find something else that made me feel the way dance did, but I have! Running! I started as a runner just to boast my fitness, but I have since fell in love with it, just as I was in love with dance for all those years! It feels like the piece that has been missing from my heart for the past 15 years has been replaced! When I run, I feel the energy and joy I did when I danced! It relieves stress and takes my mind of my day to day worries, as dance did. Of course, its just as hard on my body as dance, so I am praying for health and doing what I can do prevent injuries. Yesterday, I finished my second 5k race, timed 7 minutes faster than my last one, two months ago! The feeling of accomplishment is amazing! I am doing two more 5K's this Summer and 10K in October, then training for a half marathon in April of 2011!

We are renting a condo at the beach! I am so excited! I so need a break! My life has been very crazy! I need a break from the kids and my mom so bad. My aunt is actually taking my mom to Tulsa for the weekend to see family, so that will be great too! This trips is my bday present from my sweet hubby! Well, Mothers Day and Bday combined!
