back on my feet!

So, okay, we went out of town for 4 weeks on a long long vacation... and didn't run a step. Sure, we climbed mountains, walked 8 hours a day (some days), and got plenty of exercise. But no running.

And then we got home, and I just couldn't get started again. Sure, we've got a half marathon in less than 3 weeks. But it's been hard to get the motivation to get started again. I put on my running shoes when we went for a walk on Saturday and I was horrified to realize that they still had the timing chip attached from the Rock and Roll half. Oops.

So today was the day. I dropped Wil off at his new gig and then drove to the work and ran on the treadmill for 20 minutes (plus a warmup and cooldown). Nothing fast, nothing overly energetic... just something to "break the seal". So I ran 2.82 miles and I feel okay about it. Better than nothing, right?

And when I went to synch my run I discovered that Nike+ has made a lot of changes. Not sure I like all of them, but they're definitely trying something new. We'll see if they work out the kinks.
