So, here we are into the New Year and I'm getting back into a groove. I've been walking with Ali a few days (he still isn't able to run) and I even got a little jogging and elliptical training in this week. I feel better already knowing I'm easing back in, and I felt that I needed to give myself some motivation to keep moving forward. Soooooooo...it looks like I will be doing the Biggest Loser Half Marathon!! Darby and Tyler are signed up for the 5K. The Stevenson's are making a come-back!
