The Scene at the Ol’ Jan 1st Plunge

  1. Hi Rachel, Happy New Year from Vancouver! I wanted to share a little gift of the New Year with you..
    I stopped smoking 38 days ago. Set a goal to run the Sun Run 10k in May. Got new runners (with flowers) from happy husband. Ran yesterday and today. The best thing off all though, was the feeling I got from a fellow “runner” on my first stretch out. In the past I have found smoking outside our Kits home rather embarrassing … and usually held my head down, while lighting up, Well, New Years day this year, I bound (haaa! not yet…) down our driveway only to meet up with a woman breathing in the fresh air, while running past me. She gave me a smile and the nod. I think you know the one.. I hadn’t seen it in a long while. I want to see it again.

  2. Yay Elizabeth! I love every detail of this from the outfit to the nod. Please keep me posted on your training progress. You have an excellent running resource in Jeff. I will just offer myself up if you ever want a second or non-spousal opinion on things running-related. Huge congrats on the step into fresh air. Your heart and lungs are getting better every day. xoxo
