It's been a crazy few weeks, with lots of "a-ha" moments to contemplate, epiphanies to share, and runfessions to come clean on. Shall we chat about this over a beverage (of your choice)?
First of all, ugh, my March goals were sort of a bust, but I'm thankful for how things played out. I didn't think I was being aggressive in attempting to do these exercises daily because I was doing a minimal number of reps. Low and behold, though, OUCH! Although I still have some tenderness in my hips, I am much wiser for the lesson learned ----> a little bit of strengthening goes a long ways, and it's okay to stop if it's not working for you. Moving on!

|'Milly's near death experience sort of freaked me out|

|Lots of walking...and climbing|
Finally, The "running in D.C." opportunity didn't pan out, but I'm okay with that. Granted, I had secretly hoped to run among the cherry blossoms (and capture a few selfies with the monuments/statues/memorials in the background)....after all, how often do I ever get to America's Capitol? Realistically, though, it just was not meant to be...the logistics and practicality of it were not in my favor with our limited time there. Instead, we had a great day of seeing lots of sights, culminating with a crazy "climb" of the 91 steps of the escalator at the Metro hub at Wheaton. Although my hips and hammies were mucho angry (due to the day's activity in those sandals LOL), I just started climbing the escalator steps (standing idle is not my thing)....and my party (the hubby, youngest daughter, and her boyfriend) followed me.

Anything(s) you'd like to "runfess?" It's good for the sole (did you see what I did there?)
I'm linking up with Marcia for the monthly Runfessions
