I want to start running again!

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Last year I managed to run a 5k. It was so much fun! I really want to do it again, but, unfortunately my shoes aren't up to par. Around Christmas time I stopped running for a few weeks because I was kind of depressed. When I started back up again I injured my feet. The pain got so bad I had to go to an ER and was diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis. Apparently it was because I did too much, too fast and my shoes are bad. I've had the shoes for going on 6 years now and they have no arch support. In fact, they have always been uncomfortable.

Right now I'm not in a position to be able to get new shoes. Money is extremely tight at the moment and I have no idea when our situation is going to get any better. I also don't have much time these days.

Last semester I started back to college full time. I also apparently started kindergarten with my son this month. Not to mention I'm the only house-cleaner (although that's supposed to change after my bf gets his mid-term paper done this week). No, I take that back... My daughter has charge of cleaning the kitchen so I can cook. I've also got appointments to go to, errands to run, grocery shopping to do, copious amounts of homework, etc... I think it's safe to say that I don't have much spare time.

Anyway, enough complaining. I've got to finish getting the kids ready for school. At least I get to do pre-calculus in kindergarten :P

    A mother's work is never done. Keep up the good work.

    I might try the thrift store thing. Since there is only 1 in my area (hard to believe) that shouldn't take up too much time or effort, lol.

    You might check out some thrift never know if you might find a pair of shoes that you can use. Some of my friends and I have found amazing things. A 5K is a nice goal. Keep it in mind to keep your motivation in high gear. emoticon
