Hey you!! Oooooh!!! It was so good to see you Saturday and to see my squishy! Oh my goodness what a sweet baby girl!! :)
You did had a great run Saturday!! Looks like you and your Dad ROCKED IT!! WOOT!
I did good!! I know, you're probably not shocked, but I'm still a little 'wow, I really did that!'
10-miles!! I think I'll be OK for the C2C! :)
It was relatively flat though, which was nice, cuz I've been running hills and doing hill sprints as well. Maybe that's helping! LOL

WOOT! I know this is good news, at least I know what to do now. I hope I get some energy back. Maybe I can burn more calories, run better, lose a few more pounds! Ya know, I'm not asking for much.
