I broke a new record for myself today. I went for a run while Jason stayed home with the babies. I went 4 miles at an 8:29 pace. This is the fastest that I have EVER run 4 miles, even before I had Miles and Vivienne. It was helpful to have a nice, cool day and an awesome soundtrack (Glee, U2, Tommy Walker). I spent most of my run thinking about all the things in my life that I have to be thankful for.
It feels incredibly rewarding to know that I can accomplish new goals even with my post-twin-pregnancy body. I remember wondering if I would ever be able to run fast again. 8:29 may not be fast for some, but it is definitely fast for me. I seriously almost cried when I hit "stop" on my GPS at the end - just really happy. =)
When I run I feel His pleasure. ~ Chariots of Fire
