You can drink your vegetables!

That's what someone told me while touting the amazingness that is V-8. I've tried it, many many times. I just have a really hard time getting it down. It's got a weird texture, and I'm a definite texture person. I'll keep trying.... Here's the thing, I like vegetables, so I don't mind eating them. Not only that, I like McDonald's, but, I'm sure as heck not going to stick my burger, fries, and coke in a blender and drink it. BLECH!!!!

In other news, I ran/walked 6.2 miles today! I went with the intention of doing 5.5 once I was there, I figured I'd go 6.2 and see what it felt like to do a 10k. I feel better post run than I thought I would. On my way over to the treadmill, I was thinking maybe I should have broken in my new running shoes on something less than 5.5 miles. They were fine though. No blisters or anything! I did have a moment of panic right as I was finishing my warm up walk, I got a strange cramp on the top of my foot that made me think that maybe I had tied my shoes a little too tight. I walked it out, and was fine the rest of the time. I can definitely tell the difference between real running shoes and cross trainers.

So, as of today, Emily and I are out of the 2000s of miles, and into the high 1000s!

Anyone have any resolutions they're really excited about? Let's hear 'em!

PS Here's something funny: my spell check tried to change the word amazingness to amazons, LOL. It also tried to change blech to belch. How appropriate! Apparently it's never been to Urban Dictionary.

Thanks so much for linking this to the resolution linky! I started running again after baby #1 and it felt GREAT... until I got pregnant again so now it's on the back burner. But, baby #2 is due in May so once I heal I'm going to be a road runner again! Sounds like I should set some goals like you did... good luck with yours! I'll be lucky if I only get out running once a week. ;-)
