We're not in Kansas anymore!

It was another blustery day!  It felt just like Saturday only colder!  Since tomorrow's such a busy day and Justin was home today, I decided to do my long run today.  I knew I'd have to take it easy and just see how far I could go. Jodi was nice enough to come with me again (I love having a running buddy!) even though she knew I'd be going slow.  It really was a good run even though we took several walking breaks (for me)!  We did a lot of hills so combined with the wind it was a good workout!  We went about 8 miles and though I could feel my hamstrings a little, there was no calf pain!  I'm totally excited!
I listened to Wicked while we were running and there's a song on there that I have come to love!  Even though it doesn't really talk about running, it's still inspirational and gives words to my feelings of wanting to accomplish what I never would dare to dream on my own.  So many other things in life are that way.  We never know what we can accomplish until we try.  So, enjoy!

Defying Gravity
Something has changed within me 
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes: and leap!

It's time to try
Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
And you can't pull me down!

I'm through accepting limits
'Cuz someone says they're so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I'll never know!
Too long I've been afraid of
Losing love I guess I've lost
Well, if that's love
It comes at much too high a cost!
I'd sooner buy
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I'm defying gravity
And you can't pull me down!

Oh I love those lyrics. I can tell I am going to have to download them too! Thanks for the run! Even if we did get blown away! It was fun!
