I got my first blogging award! Thanks to Shana at So Not Zen for awarding it to me. Shana gave it to me because she thinks I is cool. (And yes, we are both fully aware that this is not grammatically correct.)
Shana and I share a couple things in common -- we are both moms and we are both runners. Okay, we have more in common than that, but it is good that we can cheer each other on in regards to the post-child running aspect. Shana is training for a half-marathon, and I totally bow to her on that.
However, I am really excited because today I am going for a run on an old route that I used to run a lot when I lived at my parent's house. Mike is out of town in Kotzebue, Alaska, so Jake will go play with Gramma and Papa while I go for that 3.5 mile run. This should be good -- I've been running somewhere between 2.5 and 3 miles for awhile, so this will be a good push, plus it is a sunny, clear day and the views should be amazing.
So in regard to the Butterfly Blogger Award, I am to award 10 people who I think is cool (and their blogs, too).
