So, to kick things off, some updates:
Running: I'm officially an inspired runner again! Since my last post, I've had a bit of a love-hate relationship with running. The hip injury = weight gain. Weight gain = harder to run (and, well, running shorts also become a challenge). Harder to run = not really enjoying running. Since January, I've been committed to getting the extra weight off and getting back on track with running. I still have a little ways to go, but with help from Weight Watchers and a month of boot camp, I'm well on my way. Don't get me wrong, I've completed 2 half-marathons and 2 triathlons since last January, but they weren't my best effort and I'm glad to be back on track.

Of course, I need to give a shout out to my fantastic friends here in Indy. I'm so blessed to have so many lifelong friends from college here in town. We've all sprinkled in friends from other parts of our lives into our social network and there's always something going on. Everyone should be so lucky!
Goals: I have to confess that the marathon bug seems to have bit me. I'm trying very hard to suppress this nasty little urge to take on the big race again, but I'm not sure I'll be successful. I've committed to the half-marathon in May, Warrior Dash in August as also another triathlon in August. All of these things would nicely lead into a full marathon in October. So, we'll see. I'll keep you posted if I make the commitment.
That's the news here. I'm back on the wagon.
