An Update, Of Sorts

It is the end of September.  WOW!  How did it go by so fast?

I am on target to meet my 20 workouts for September.  It has really helped that I am meeting Karen and Yvonne in the wee hours of the morning to walk/run.

Last weekend was Amanda's shower.  It was hard, but I made it through with no tears.  You never know when they are going to come.

I found out last week that my running partner is pregnant.  While I am so happy for her, I am sad for me for two reasons...I lost my running partner AND I am not pregnant yet.

I have a doctor appointment on Friday, just to get a game plan.  I am not a patient person...I need a plan and I want to work the plan.  (just like training)

I am planning to do the Peace Race (10k) the end of October because, well, that is what I do.  I have done this race since at least 2005, maybe even 2004.  I like my track record!

Week 2

Second week in on my mini challenge and I am 10/20.  I would be 11/20 but it was raining Thursday morning and cold.  So I took the day off.  I am hoping that my tummy clears up a little bit so I can head out for a run later.

On another note...
I am 9DPO and I took a pregnancy test and it is clearly negative.  I know that it is still really early to test but I can't help myself.  It tears my heart each test that is negative and yet I must test.  Each test is another heartache.  I just thought for certain that this month would be the one.

One week in...

So, today marks seven days in September.  I have run or run/walked four days so far.  I have sixteen days left.  Totally do-able!

We had a busy weekend.  Saturday we went down to visit with Addie.  I can't believe how big and grown up she is now.  It has only been a month since we saw her.  Amazing. Sunday we went to Lowe's.  Bought ceiling paint and paint for the office.  So far we have the ceiling painted, and one coat of paint on the walls.  I hope to get the second coat on tonight then tomorrow paint the trim...Friday will be the cleaning and moving furniture back into place.  (By furniture, I mean, move some stuff around to make it look decent!)
