{It's A New Day}

I told you guys I was a horrible blogger.

So....I've been on a hiatus of sorts. After my Nashville Half Marathon in April, I knew I was going to have to take a running break. A few weeks before then I had begun having some significant pain in my shoulder and was allowed to race only if I promised to tape it, which I did. Then, I ran Nashville, had a horrible race, and wasn't sure I ever wanted to run again. (I May, I ran the Women Can Run 5K) It's at this point that my shoulder became more than I could bear and I began physical therapy. It wasn't helping and I became depressed that I was so limited in what I could do physically. So ...what did I do? Nothing.

I've gained 30 pounds since May.
I had surgery on my shoulder in August.
And...I returned to exercising in October.

I'm currently down 8 pounds and have a long LONG way to go, but I think I'm ready to start tackling this running thing again.
