All it takes is a little flattery

One of the reasons I started running was because a guy in a store once told me I had a "great running step".

Molly in the lead and this is what she sees

Molly runs with us in Illinois. She wrote me earlier in the week:
I was finally able to go outside today for my run! (I am not as geared up for the weather like the rest of you ladies) It was exhilarating! I have been cooped up in a stuffy gym on a treadmill. But now that the weather has broke(it was 36 F) and the canal path is no longer flooded I have a place to go. I live on top of a bluff. So my path down to the canal in the valley winds up and down through the streets
to the historic little downtown, then leads to the old canal path.  
There is the I&M canal on one side of the wooded path and old quarries that were used to build our churches and town. Now they are full of water and home to tons of wildlife. I will be running outside as much as possible from now on!!! :) Just wanted to share what a beautiful morning it was! Thanks...Molly

Back on track

After a day at the zoo and a children's party the last thing I wanted to do was go running, especially since we're currently having hail over here. But inspiration has nothing to do with it. Powered by determination, I went on my run. 

And now, it feels SO GOOD.

I don't know why nike+ says the new challenge starts March 18 in one place, when I set it to start 19th and that's what it says in the description as well. If you want an invitation, mail me at emi@lovegun.net


Josefina wins!

Alpha Monkey

And we have a winner!

grattis Josefina!

What are you doing

How come no one is running? Are you having tons of snow in Europe and Illinois?

Leaving for New York

I'm leaving for New York tomorrow, will take a break from all this. 
Looks like Josefina will win this, but you never know. 
Will start new challenge that will begin when I return, next Thursday (March 19th)
Mail me at emi@lovegun.net if you want to participate. 

You can participate even if you don't have the Nike+ stuff, but in that case, keep track of your total distance and mail me that as it increases.

Girlie run

I came back from the run to pick up the female part of my family. Vanja and Niki are 6 years apart and look almost identical. It's strange knowing what my baby will look like in 6 years.
