Before and After

...yeah I know these aren't the best photos...its always hard for me to give up my camera...and this is the reason why...but at least I have something to document this day.

Yesterday I had 13 inches of my hair cut off...and I didn't do it just because I needed a change...I was perfectly happy with my had taken me 4 years to grow it out...

These days it seems like cancer just surrounds me and though I have my health...the feeling of hopelessness I have felt has caused me a tremendous amount of I decided to donate my hair to {Locks of Love}. I am happy to know that my hair is going to make a child very happy! But I also know that I am supporting the ones I love who are fighting this terrible disease CANCER. I can't take away their pain, or how sick they are feeling, I can't give them the energy they need to do the basic everyday things or the things they love to do - but I really hope these people know how much they mean to me and if I could do anything and I mean anything I would do it!

Happy Friday!!!

I have started the day out the kids off on the bus and then went out for a run...I haven't ran since October when I did the 1/2 Marathon...some of you know I've been having a lot of issues since December I had x-rays show I had a broken tailbone, fractures in my pelvis and pubic bones...its surprising enough that I even ran that race...but I did and it was one of the proudest moments in my life...I had all kinds of hopes of running several more races in 2010...but I just haven't been able to March I met with an Orthopedist and I also found out that my pelvis is how in the world did this happen and why haven't I known about it before now? ...well I have missed running...and with the amount of stress I've had in my life lately I really needed this morning I just did it! ...and it felt no means did I go fast or far for that matter...but the short 2 miles felt GREAT! (now I hope I'm not paying for it later...) I also want to share a couple of new digital LOs!
