Well, yesterday I finally broke in the new pair of tennis shoes I bought last week. A friend and I walked on the school track while our kids were in running club. At first I was really getting out of breath and it seemed just a bit too warm for me to be out there exercising, but after about a quarter mile, the walking just became easier and we were busy talking and taking in the scenery and before you knew it, we'd walked nearly 2 miles! I attribute this to my new shoes, but I know that was only a small part of it. The best part of all? The proud look in my child's eyes when he ran past me, like he was so happy to have me outside near him and that I was finally starting to take care of my self. Priceless!!!
