We ran on!

Today was the first group run for my running moms group.

And it was awesome. Awesome.

There were 8 of us for this first run (5 others couldn't make it). Fellow running bloggers Suzy, Amanda and Darlene showed up and led a brand new mom (her baby is only 15 weeks old), Melissa, to a speedier run than she expected. Rock on, Melissa! I lead Bridget, Janis and Jen -- who are all beginner runners -- on a 2.25 mile run/walk. They did a super job! Everyone finished and I hope that everyone was proud of what they did. I know for certain that I am proud of them!

I was nervous on Saturday: The weather forecast for Sunday did not look good. Ninety percent chance of rain and NNE winds with gusts of 30-40 mph. Not ideal weather for the first run of a training session, especially for women who aren't used to running outside.

Someone must have been owed a favor from the weather gods because the stormy weather skipped us by. Yes, the wind was strong at times but we moms were stronger and we ran on!

Here we are post-run (but pre-Starbucks, which was a nice treat!):

Bridget, Janis, Jen, me, Darlene, Amanda, Melissa, Suzy

I already can't wait for our next group run. But first, I need to come up with a name. Every group needs a name, right? Ideas are welcome :-)

Have a great week, everyone!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.

Sounds like a lot of fun. I am looking for hopefully getting into a gym group of mommies where we go to the local rec center. Or even do a walking group. Might have to do a little posting around the area and see if anyone is interest.

A very good idea and you all look happy!

By the way, I work as a virtual assistant of The Healthy Moms ( ), the site is fairly new and I thought I would drop by some mom and health related sites to spread the word.

To be a upright benign being is to have a philanthropic of openness to the mankind, an skill to group uncertain things beyond your own restrain, that can lead you to be shattered in unequivocally exceptionally circumstances on which you were not to blame. That says something very weighty about the fettle of the honest passion: that it is based on a conviction in the up in the air and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a weed than like a sparkler, something fairly tenuous, but whose extremely precise attraction is inseparable from that fragility.
