Yesterday I registered Davey and I for the Modesto Turkey Trot 5k. We will be doing it with Sara over at Weightless. Very exciting! But I am not gonna lie, I am extremely nervous. I ran with the boys last night and I felt like I totally lost my running Mojo. Seriously. I don't know if it's in my head, or if it was really hard because I was pushing the boys, but I am not feeling as confident. My asthma again, was really bothering me. Maybe I will use my nebulizer before runs. I only did one small lap, and didn't even run the whole thing. Tonight Davey is coming home. Yay! I plan to run tonight, tomorrow, and Sunday. I am going to take full advantage of him being home!

And.... I just registered for my 10K! I'm excited, and very nervous. Nervous for reasons I just stated, and because I have not even ran a full 3 miles yet. I am trying to tell myself, it's okay, you can walk part of the 10K. But I have this mentality that if I do it doesn't count. I registered so I would keep my race schedule, and continue to challenge myself. I CAN and I WILL finish it!

Davey is coming home tonight. I am really soooo happy! I have Chicken and Dumplings in the Crockpot, and have a lot of cleaning to do. Yesterday I put up all the Christmas lights on the house all by myself! It looks great and I hope I surprise Davey. I told him about the money I spent, and he was mad. Hopefully he's over it tonight! :/ I think he will be :)
Sara found this bike trailer on Craigslist where she lives, and so sweet, she went and picked it up for me! So excited! But Davey told me not to get the jogger I was going to get, which was only $30! Hopefully I can talk him into it.

I'm nervous about the run too. I can run 3.1 miles any day when I'm healthy BUT my ankle still isn't 100%. I haven't exercised at all on it and probably won't be able to until Monday. I'm afraid of pushing myself too hard and making my injury worse.

But I'm also excited to be able to exercise again. Not being able to exercise can be such a hazard to dieting and a slippery slope. I WANT to be back at it again.
