A little inspiration

Good morning my little chickadees!

I ran 4.5 miles this morning, and did my first mile (which is basically entirely up-hill) in 9.5 minutes! I am feeling strong and inspired this morning - which is great, since Adeline and I are fasting together today.

128.8 after my run - I should have weighed before, but I knew it would be a bigger confidence booster is I weighed after.

Again, thank you all for the kindest of kind words about my photos. You are all so sweet and please do not be envious of me. I have so much work to do, but I promise not to let you down.

How about some inspirational music? Juan gave me his iPod shuffle before I moved away from San Diego, and here is what I listen to on my runs...

Sheesh, you run like a tiger too! You go, girl! That's one impressive play list!

Pointless factoid: The lead singer of Freshlyground, Zolani Mahola, grew up in my home town, Port Elizabeth. I believe she's an absolute darling!

Gonna do a 'special feature' post on S.A. music real soon. All the best to ya, Babe! XXX.
