So lets talk about the serious love/hate relationship Miss Mel and I have with this thing called running. Running can be super fun and a great way to energize your day but getting there can sometimes be a pain. Since we're both in school and have jobs, finding the time to work out can be difficult. Honestly those are the times when we really should be finding time for even a short jog or mini-workout. Personally I always feel more relaxed and energized after a run, more amped to take on the world if you will. It's one of the best ways to de-stress besides getting a massage (I think I can speak for everyone when I say I wish I could have a live-in masseuse at my beck and call) but since that's not in the cards anytime soon I think I'll stick with a nice run through the park. Also another great thing we love is going running with a friend or group of friends. It helps motivate me to run the whole route instead of running half, walking some then crawling the rest. Speaking of running in groups Miss Mel and I each participated in our very first 5Ks this year, I did the Pumpkin Dash for the Cure in October and Miss Mel did the Santa's North Pole Dash in December. Here we are!

Do you find it odd that we do all of our best running in costume? Haha!
