Last week on our ten mile run, I hurt my foot and I haven't ran for 5 days now. Its killing me to be forced to rest. Rest days suck but from past experience, running through pain only made me have to rest for months instead of a week or two. So this time around, I'm listening to my body and advice from an old friend and taking it easy. I don't wAnt to be out of my half marathon in less than two week. That would be awful.
On a happy note, we took the boys to see snow and they love it. It makes me so happy to see them play and enjoy nature. It scares me when I think of how much time kids spend on iPads and games and how little they do outdoors exploring. I would love to have them be outdoor nature kids. Nothing happier then showing your kids that there is more outside than they could ever imagine. We may be miles from our paradise beaches of home, but there are so many other mountains and terrain to explore out here. Here's to a 2014 filled with "NeverStopExploring"
