Ok, the bullet points over the past couple of weeks:
Race for the Cure 5k - 39 minutes
Chandler Challenge 5k - 40 minutes
Longest run so far - 4.75 miles
Good news - I found a belt that fits. And the pocket is big enough for my phone (which will make Mr. Sweet Buns happy).
Bad news -I already need new shoes. And those suckers aren't cheap!
Worse news - Jet is sidelined for a while. She's going to have to sit out a couple weeks to let her tendonitis and plantar fascitis heal. And then she'll be back to running circles around me.
Best news - I am still loving the running (even when I am hating it)!
