Dusting this thing off!!!!

Friday, January 11, 2013

So it's been over 2 years since I actually blogged on here. SO much has happened in that time, so here's the short version...

*I've experienced 2 miscarriages (back to back)
*Unexplained fertility
*20 pound weight gain from pregnancies & surgeries (D&C both times)
*Got a dog (oddly enough right after we lost the second pregnancy)
*I started running again
* Completed half marathon #4 on 10/21/2012
*Convinced my husband to run with me again (half #1 for him & #5 for me in March)
*Decided to go big & run 2 full marathons this year!!!

Short version.....loss, a shift in focus & realizing through it all, I survived! I am forever changed but ready to focus forward, shed this extra fluff & reclaim ME!

Here's our Molly as a puppy! She's a goldendoodle & about quadruple that size now! emoticon
