The Good News

I got the job.
And the school not only is 3.6 miles away, it is the very school I hoped to get my kids into. I just need to verify with the principal that it is cool for them to come with me (which would normally not even be an issue.) This is a magnet school that doesn't accept transfers.
I mean, really. Thank you Lord.

I am also committing to training for the half marathon. Bill says he's going to match my miles. The good news on this front is that on Monday I ran withDanielle, and I actually ran two of the three miles. That's a jaw dropper folks. I haven't run two miles since college. And then I did it only once.

You know what? It feels good.

Yay! That rocks!

Seriously, it seems like all of my friends are taking up running. Doesn't help that Shaun runs a bazillion miles a week. I am so glad I have pregnancy as an excuse right now. ;)

congrats on the job! That is awesome. I was so terrified of my school nurse in grade school. I bet you will make such a great one.
