Personal:

I've been running since high school (mid-1990s) and do pretty well when I'm focused on a goal. My main problem  is running consistently when I'm NOT training for something specific. I'm an attorney, and I've been married to my husband, also a runner, for 5 1/2 years. We live in Phoenix, Arizona.  We had a beautiful baby girl, Caroline, in August 2009.

Three SLOW miles.   I think I forgot to blog my last run.

Hey chica, feeling any better yet? Soon you should be able to start exercising a little again--even if it is just walking to start. Trust me, you'll feel a lot better if you do.

I'm back after a LONG break.  Most of you probably don't remember me.  I stopped running because I was pregnant.  Believe me, I tried, but every time I ran, my back would hurt horribly.  So I walked some during my pregnancy.  I had our sweet daughter on August 24.  Getting back into a consistent running routine with a full-time job and a baby is going to be quite challenging, but...one day at a time.

I ran 2 miles this morning without stopping, which I think is pretty good after not running at all for 9 months.  I have no idea what my time was and don't want to know for a while.  Congrats to everyone who ran St. George.  

5 pounds over pre-pregnancy weight

Welcome back Shauna, and congratulations! I think it is awesome that you are only 5bls over pre-pregnancy weight - that will come off in no time.

I ran two miles again today, again without the GPS.  It was really nice out, although I was sore from the other day.  I also walked over two miles with the baby in the stroller this morning, which I'll count as cross-training miles.  The run felt a little easier.  I didn't weigh myself today.

There was nothing easy about these two miles.  In fact, I had to walk a bit.  

The little one and I walked almost every day last week, but I forgot to blog about it.  I'll blame it on my new-mom brain.
