My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)

5K

I did it!  I registered for my first 5K.   I have a month and a day... It's a walk, but it's a start....  I am going to try to jog as well depending on how my knees hold up (arthritis if you're new to reading my blog!).      I am excited.   If I enjoy it, I will sign up for another one on 10/30.. it'll be one with costumes! FUN!

Sorry for the super short post today - I have to leave work in an hour, and it's been so busy.    I am desperately missing commenting on blogs.. I can read them through reader at work, but clicking through to the sites gives me an error on my browser saying that I'm trying to go to a social networking site.. AHHH!!!

Oh, is it the "Walk from Obesity"? My surgeon's office sent me a link to sign up http://www.walkfromobesity.com/. I think it's October 16th or roundabouts. Good luck, have fun! I have been walking/jogging every other night for 3 miles around my neighborhood.
