1,000 miles ran milestone :)

on saturday, september 3, i finally hit that 1,000 miles ran marker. yup, i was determine to get there before i stop running until december. of course, as you can see from my last post, running at the moment is a bit tricky. it's tough carrying that extra weight. amazing. i guess you can say i somewhat can relate or feel what it's like to be carrying extra weight now. especially if that weight is unwanted due to laziness or plain ignorance -- whichever. basically, let's just say i don't intend on being overweight in my lifetime. let's hope i can do everything in my power not to get there too. it just sucks trying to work out when you have 20-30 extra pounds. it's tough -- period.

so yes, 1,001 miles ran to be exact. i'm so proud of myself. that's not bad at all. i can't wait until december to pick it up again. in the meantime, i'll enjoy what little peace and quiet i have until the big arrival. plus, it's nice being lazy again... and not having to wake up so early for that morning jog. although, i do have to say, i kind of miss it. or more like, miss the feeling of accomplishing something before the start of day. when that ugly morning mist hits my face, it feels so good. well, it won't be long i guess. only 3 more months to go and i'll be back out there hitting the pavements again assuming everything goes according to plan. :)

it's been a looooooong while...

oh, so much has changed since the last time i've written something here. can't remember when that was.

alright, here's all the goodie updates. let's just say we're expecting another bundle of joy to add to the mix this october. in the mean time, this prettiee mama is packing on the necessary pounds required for this task, and at the same time, is striving to run as much as possible leading up to the big day.

yup, you heard that right. i'm pregnant and still running! only 74 more miles to go to reach 1,000 miles ran since i picked up running again 3 years ago. oh my, has it really been 3 years? i guess so. i remember precisely it was after that last birthday back in july 2008 that i made a commitment to start running again. well, 3 years later and even with a bun in the oven, i'm still running. i'm so proud that i'll be reaching the 1,000 miles marker soon. not just that, but the initial 150 miles ran before october is coming up. only 18 more miles to go to get to 150 miles. i say at the rate i'm going right now, i'll get there within the next few weeks. shouldn't be a problem... assuming nothing crazy comes up from now til then. :D

alrighty, that's all for now. just thought i share this little news. will definitely be sure to post when i reach 1,000 miles ran! can't wait to get there. will be one crazy cool accomplishment. :)
