Congrats!!

Take care of those shin splits (you'll have lots of walking to do in a few months!! ... )

Check out the Runner's World web site for some healing advice (haven't been there in years, but they used to have a "most frequent problem/solution" page ... )

When you start up again, stick to soft surfaces (no roads for awhile!!) - you don't want the shin splints to develop into a stress fracture (although you would ghave fun puttering around WDW in an ECV ... )

Congrats, again!

CONGRATULATIONS! We knew you could do it. What a bummer that it was raining. That was sweet that Todd let you cross first. What a good guy.

Congratulations, Kristen!!

What an accomplishment. I'm so proud of you! I'm still in the thinking phase of the couch to 5K program but maybe....

Oh and what a guy Todd is to let you cross first. He's a keeper!

I'm not sure why I didn't notice this report earlier, because the title should have grabbed me a long time ago. I love mother-daughter trips!

Anyway, it caught me this morning, and I read about the surprise to your mom. I know it made her cry, because I don't even know you and it made my cry. What a sweet thought for you girls to do this!

Your boys are great, and I know they fill your home with chaos and fun!

Since I wasn't around when you ran, I'll give you a belated congratulations on your run.

I look forward to catching up with your report and your plans, and then I look forward to hearing about this great girls trip yet to come!

CONGRATULATIONS! And in the rain?! Wow!

I hope you figure it all out with your shins, I'm sure that is very painful.

The pic of Cole and your DH is really sweet, Cole looks so teeny....he's such a cutie! You look great in your running gear too, so fresh and fit! Kinda what I hope to be someday!

Thanks for all your nice comments, will write back to all of you soon, I promise!! Just wanted to say 3 months, 3 weeks, 3 days!!! Time if flying!!

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Memorial day weekend!!

Take care,
Kristen

Thank you...the rain was pouring so hard at one point I needed to stop because I couldn't even see!!! It was nuts, but I guess I'd rather that than 90degrees, right? LOL!! My shins did great......my lungs, not as good as I had hoped,but I guess that takes some time.....hopefully I can build them up some more.

Thanks! Good for you for walking and jogging, too! It's so nice to have someone to do it with, isn't it? And I agree, just getting outside is the best!!!

Thanks Joelp!!! And for all your tips, too!! I've walked some this week and ran after a kid or two and my shins are really bothering me again. Not sure what to do...thinking I may need to visit a dr. and see what the next step is. I really enjoyed training and doing the race and would like to continue.....just not sure my body will let me....will check out that site you recommended and maybe find something there.

No ECV in Disney....although in the 90+ weather, maybe it's not a bad idea...lol!!

Thanks Christine!!! Youll love the couch to 5K...it works, trust me! You see what I look like in my pics (not in shape with a few extra lbs. I'm blaming my boys for....heehee!)...if i can do it, you can too!!

Yes, Todd is for sure a keeper!!!!

Hi Brook!! Thanks for all your nice comments!! My shins are doing okay....starting to think I may need to visit a dr. since after walking a couple of times they are aching , may need to get to the bottom of things.

Cole does look sooo teeny next to Todd....Todd is 6'4" so I'm really hoping the boys get his height and not mine!!

Hope you're well!!!

So I called Disney today to confirm when I can actually book my dining and they told me 6/15. It's getting so close now!! I also confirmed how many TS meals I would get to book.....and now I'm not so sure....so if someone can confirm this for me, that would be great. We are going Monday (will be there in the a.m) to Friday (flying out at night)....so does that mean we only have 4 days of dining? Since we're only there 4 nights? Does that mean on Friday we pay for all of our meals? I felt like when we had it last time we had it the second we got there until when we left.....I don't remember putting any money out....so if someone can clarify this for me that would be great....maybe my head isn't clear today (it's been quite the week!).

I also went online again today to see if the EMH have been posted and still nothing...I forgot to ask the CM when I was talking to her when it would be posted and forgot. So...guess I'll keep checking....

I guess that's about all new on this end.....no worries, in like 2 weeks I'll have SO much to post with dining coming up and EMH....thanks for being patient with me!!

I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL MEMORIAL DAY weekend!!!
