Beth Runs!

After sitting on my butt all winter, knitting and watching Craig Ferguson into the wee hours, it's time to get up, get out, and move!!!

The difference between pain and pain...

The aftermath of the Half Marathon was awesome! Toward the end of the day, my quads and hamstrings and glutes had really begun to stiffen up. By the next morning, I could barely get out of bed. I moved like a 95-year old with a recent double hip replacement. Going upstairs and getting up out of a chair hurt a lot, but going downstairs and sitting down into a chair were nearly impossible without a lot of loud grunts and groans to ease the pain. Still, I had a huge smile.


Because my shin didn't hurt! My knees didn't hurt! My toes didn't hurt! The only blister was a tiny one I found on the bottom of my foot hours after the race ended! The sore muscles will be healed in a few days and end up stronger for the abuse. The parts that matter are great!

How many exclamation points am I allowed to put into one post?!?!?
