I may be slow

but I AM MY OWN SUPERHERO.  I went for a run this morning.  Quite honestly the "running" I've been doing this break has been a lot more walking. And a lot of putting it off.  I was finally honest with myself and realized that if I want to "run" races I actually need to get out there and run.  So I began Hal Higdon's Half Marathon training program today.  On the schedule was a 3 mile run.  So I went out and ran.  It was hard and I am slow but I did it.  This Sunday is a 5k race that I would love to do only to break the ice so to speak.  I have not done a local race in years and the first one is going to be scary (yeah, I'm weird that way).  I did 3 miles today in 50 minutes, by Sunday I should be able to do it in 40-45.  That is at least reasonable.  I know there will be walkers slower than that - there always are.  So I may do it just to start the ball rolling again.  I may be slow but at least I'm out there doing it.

So here it is. 2018. We had some friends over last night and it was fun. Thankfully, everyone left by 10 pm and we headed to bed by 11 pm...
