Picking up the Pace

I'm picking up the pace, adding to the miles, sweating off the calories and working on my fitness....all while tring to get in the best shape of my life.
I never would have though a year & a half ago, I would enjoy running as much as I do. Now though I can't ever picture myself not running. Its such a passion of mine and a great way to stay fit and in shape. Not to mention I'm able to take the pups, most days so it gives them a chance to get out of the house and really stretch their legs. Some times I seem to run better when they are with me, or really it could all just be in my head. Either way I enjoy it and how it makes me feel when I'm done. 
~DAY 346~
 The husband wasn't picking up is phone.....why you say.....because the company was at the live grenade range, practicing / teaching the PVT's how to throw grenades. I really needed his truck that evening (like right after work) so I just took it upon myself to go switch out cars. I'm sure he enjoyed walking out to his truck gone and finding my car there. That will teach him to not answer his phone next time. lol.  
~DAY 347~
 There's nothing better than coming home and running off all the stress and worries from your day. I always feel so much more refreshed afterwards and ready to take on the world. For dinner we tried something new, they were called Pizzadillas. It was pretty much all the pizza toppings tossed inside a tortilla shell and cooked on the burner long enough to melt the cheese. They were pretty tasty!!!

~DAY 348~

I wasn't able to make it to Zumba tonight because I was asked to babysit. I of course said yes, this was for a couple from our company. The wife (S) is helping us out with the pups while I'm away so it worked out great. They had a kid free date night with a free babysitter for the evening and she's going to help take care of the pups. Of course the hubbs will still be here but for half the time he will be in the field going through Vic. Forge with his PVT's and we all know he will have CQ once or twice while I'm away. Any how I was able to get in a quick run around the neighbor hood before they dropped little Z off at the house.

~DAY 349~

 Seriously I have some of the most fabulous parents ever that I baby sit for. I watched little Miss. L Friday evening. Earlier that day her mom texted me telling me that if I wanted to go on a run with L in her jogger stroller she didn't mind. She knew I was coming right from work and wouldn't be able to get my run in before hand. We had so much fun playing at the park lots of laughs and giggles. And I have to say for the first time running with a jogging stroller it really wasn't to bad at all. No worse than running with the pups. lol. 
~DAY 350-~

Good for you for keeping up the running. I literally just started running and am starting to enjoy it (of course, I can only do about 2 miles, but we are getting there!)

How did you get started with running and stick with it? I was doing SO good back in January/Feb but I hit a wall when it came to running for 5 minutes straight. I think its all mental!

You look SO good and in shape! I'm always impressed by your self-determination and go girl! Also, pizzadillas sound DELICIOUS. I want some in my belly, like, now.
