Let's Celebrate

I feel like having a celebration.  I've been in a slight funk, almost certainly caused by my lack of any real running.  I'm sorry, all of you aqua-jogging junkies, it's not bad, but, for me, it just doesn't cut it!

BUT, today, I ran 20 whole minutes outside, on the road, real running!!  WOOT!  Coach Mary told me if I could do three sets of eccentric calf raises with no pain, I could run today.  And run I did, for 20 whole minutes. My achilles were a little stiff for the first 1/2 mile, but then they loosened up and felt great!  I am a little stiff tonight, so I will be icing a bit later on.  I think I'm just really going to have to baby my feet if I want to keep up with my running.

So, running is a good reason to have a celebration, right!!

Hmmm....how shall we celebrate?

How about some giveaways???

I have three awesome giveaways coming at you in the next few days!  Here are some hints as to what they might be:

You can wear a couple of them.
Some might cool you off.
You might be able to eat of one of them.
You definitely have lots of choices.
