So much to learn...

This one's for all you moms of young kids (it was on my fridge for ages): "Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing"
Phyllis Diller

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Myself, I finally noticed the "link" button...I now know how to lead you to other pages without having to put in the whole URL :) I'm trying to figure out how to put my dailymile counter on my blog! (Anyone?)

Today didn't start off too great lung-wise and my cough was worse this morning. Before I go on, let me mention that I am a very rational person. However, I have been blessed with sisters and a close friend who have opened me up to the other, more spiritual and less rational, side. I am extremely grateful for that. My sister Cee is not only an author, but she's also a naturotherapist and she works with our Energy. According to Cee, when we experience stressors or strong emotions our Energy tends to shift. So...Cee recentered my Energy this morning...

Later in the morning, me, uber hubby, my bro and my super sister-in-law, who is my partner for the half, went for a 10K run!

It was so much fun to run together and I DID NOT cough once :)

You can't catch us!
The weather was a "relatively" nice -5°C/23°F and the sun even came out during the last 2 kilometers.

Going up a hill at approximately kilometer 7 ...hmmm my head is down, gotta work on that.
My theory is that the Energy centering and the endorphins have both contributed to me feeling much better this afternoon. I am not coughing! Fingers crossed everyone and we'll hope that things stay this way...

Wow, running in the cold! You have a lot of stamina...I'm a baby, I do the treadmill at the gym. ;)

OK, that run actually looked like fun!

I use that quote often! My house is never just clean but I wouldn't trade my life for the world. Love those messy kids!

Looked like a fun run! I'm braving the cold today, too.

Good job on the group effort!! Getting in touch with your spiritual side during your longer runs really, really helps to clear your head....good luck!

SO TRUE!!!! Cleaning with a 4 year old in the house is pointless! I try to explain that to my husband every day!
