I did it!

I haven't run in a long, long time.  I practice Bikram yoga regularly, which is a total body work out.  Yesterday, to the surprise of my buddy Jordan and everyone else in my office, I ran four miles.  Non-stop.  Jordan was emailing updates to the office while we ran; I averaged a ten minute mile.   It's silly, but I was the office hero after I ran four miles.  They were so surprised, because they couldn't do it.  I've always been undervalued, underutilized at my firm when it comes to work.  This wasn't any different!  My husband knew I could do it.  Again, it's silly, but having my husband believe in me is very satisfying.  My husband wasn't surprised when I completed the challenge.

Now, Jordan "yoga is just stretching" is going to do a Bikram yoga class, and I hope his wife has life insurance because I plan to kill him in class.  It's going to be tough!


  1. Is that Jordan in 2nd or 3rd place?
    PS - My comment from yesterday is not here. I guess I messed up. I knew you could do it too because you thought you could. I did tell you to not do anything foolish and to TCOYTWIW. Can't ever quit being a mom. ;-)

  2. Way to go! I can barely run for miles and I run and do boot camp every week. Maybe I need to do yoga!
