Running.

Z is a real runner.
Most of you know this already.
But if you didn't, see the below picture as proof.
He takes his running very seriously
& most recently won a 5k.
His award is displayed on the mantel.

Here is the close-up.
See how fierce that lion is?
That is how serious Z is about his running.

I, on the other hand,
have been an on-again, off-again
runner for many years,
ever since 10th grade.

That is when I joined the cross-country team,
not because I was so interested in running
but more because I was
really terrible at volleyball
& had to find a new sport.

So, last week,
when Z needed some new running shoes
I got some for myself, too.

And yesterday we went running at the lake.
I say "we", which means that we started together
and then I watched him disappear.
(Hey, he runs everyday....I hadn't run since last July/August)

But I did a slow 3 miles without stopping
and it felt good.
I'm about to head out there again today.

Consider me on-again.

Good for you, Hannah! The lakeshore trail in springtime is a good way to get back to running... sounds wonderful. (Ok, I admit it - I hate running - but if you've got to run, that's the way to run! :)) And congrats to Zach on the 5K win!

Just stumbled across your blog from cjane's. :) I love your photos! It makes your life seem so charming and lovely.

Minus the running. Which is not lovely, ugh. ;)
