Another Year Older & Another Doctors Update

On Friday the 13th, I went in for a doctors apointment. The cool thing is, she released me from my crutches this week. I am slowly taking myself off of them though, a little here and there. It's kind of weird going anywhere without them. I'm still a little scared to put too much weight on my leg and I'm also afraid to walk too fast. The doc told me that I can start the stationary bike this week, three times a week until I return for my next appointment on March 13 (another Friday the 13th!). She said at that point, we can "discuss" adding some "light jogging" back into my life. So, I'm going to be extra careful and do everything that she says so that I can get out there again!

Well, I turned the big 3-0 on Sunday and I must admit, I do feel like I'm 30 years old! It was a nice weekend. My family had a nice lunch for me and my husband took me out for dinner. I also got some really great birthday presents!

I don't know about you, but the weather today is giving me spring feaver and I'm ready to break out the mini pedi and buy some new flip flops!

For those of you training for Cowtown, I'm rooting for you and I know that you will do well. Get out there and make us proud. I can't wait to hear your stories!
