I forgot some exciting news that happened over the weekend -- JP's brother got engaged. They went to Hawaii and he proposed while they were eating dinner on the balcony, drinking wine, overlooking the water, with music playing in the background. I know. It sounds like a movie scene, doesn't it. Very excited for them! JP said the bad thing about such a romantic proposal is that he's going to have to come up with something pretty good... :) They return home next week, and I think we're planning a trip to Chicago to see them. We haven't been to their new place yet, so it should be fun!
Ran outside yesterday. It was sunny and warm and I needed to burn off some anger (work related). I ran for 40 minutes. No idea how far I ran, but I was glad to be out there. The first 10 minutes or so were horrible. But, I started to relax a bit and my body just kinda fell into synch. It was probably thinking, "Finally!" My butt felt like lead and my stomach was pretty heavy. I've been so swollen lately. All I could think of was how it must feel to be pregnant. I wasn't sure if I was going to fall forward or backwards! :) My legs were tight so I needed a good stretch afterwards, but all in all it wasn't too bad. I do miss the days of an "easy 10 mile" run. Oh well, all in good time. Looking forward to another good run this afternoon.
