She's running to stand still

My boss (my Dad) was in the office all week a couple of weeks ago and I realized that the busier I am the happier I am. That being said, I decided to take on a few more things. I am currently working on a couple of knitting projects and going to a Bible Study on Mondays.

To add to that I recently committed to Scott that I would go to the Y with him, and a buddy of ours, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, but that has a new wrinkle. I am going to train with my sister-in-law, and a group from her work, for a 10K in July. I ran for the first time in a LONG time yesterday. I should say I did a walk-run. The first step in the progression to six miles. I warmed up for five minutes then ran two minutes and walked four minutes for thirty minutes and then cooled down for five minutes.

I am realizing today that, as a result of the commitment to the run, I need to re-enter the world of yoga. I have found, in the past, that I am too competitive for yoga...if the person(s) next to me are in a certain position, I want to be in that position too! This attitude has yielded many pulled muscles. At this point I think that there will actually be another internal drive to the yoga (being able to move, maybe) that will divert my attention from the people around me.

Clear Spring is the place to go AND it is co-owned by the mother of my first boyfriend. Or, should I was the first boy I "went with" (Oh those were the days!) So I will be heading back there, soon!

A good friend of mine recently opened a book store and I am also joining the Southern Literature Book Club there. I am going to go pick up the book this afternoon. It is a great bookstore:

So, I hope to stay a, happy, busy little bee.

Finally, note to self: do not nap instead of taking Koz on walks over the weekend b/c he will be a royal pain in the office on Monday!
