Yes, I have been running at quite a pace. And what I am running is the Race of Life! Things have hummed along the last few months. The big news on the block is that we are expecting another Baby Guilford in May 2010! We are very excited and somewhat nervous about the big change...we've had a good amount of time with our little Samuel, you know.

So I said that I would talk about running if anyone out there cares to talk about it...

First things first. If you want to try out running, then you have to make two commitments.

  1. I repeat. Be committed! Treat it like your job, a have to do. You have to give it a chance.

  2. Buy running shoes! Go to a running store and get fitted for shoes that work for your feet. The sales person should watch you walk bare foot and then recommend a shoe. Too expensive, you say? I bet those medical bills will cost even more after attempting to run in shoes that are old and worn out! Believe me, I know. Shoes have to be replaced and I've hurt myself pretty good running in worn out shoes. My favorite shoe is Adidas Supernovas - and I stick to them. Who cares what color they are...can you feel good in them? That's what matters.

So there...first piece of info to work with. Think on that...
