trying to get back in shape

Now that Daniel is here, it is time to get back in shape. This past December a lot of the Huddleston crew ran the Baton Rouge half-marathon. They decided to make this a tradition, so my goal is to be able to run the half-marathon this December. Obviously, I have a long way to go! I haven't seriously run since I played soccer in high school! So, if anyone is interested, I am looking for a running partner...let's face it, it's no fun running by yourself. I am also looking for a gym to join, so any advice on that is greatly appreciated. I am torn between two at the moment--the Woman's Center for Wellness (run by Woman's Hospital) or the YMCA. Woman's is nice because it has childcare while you workout, and it is just for women...but it is a little pricey. The YMCA is cheaper and also has childcare. If anyone has any input or other suggestions, please let me know! My first goal is to run LSU's Loop the Lake race on April 5th. It is a 4.1 mile run around the LSU lakes. Feel free to join me!

I'm TOTALLY in for the lake race. And I would LOVE to work out with you too. Most nights Jacob has to do homework and he wants me to get away from the house so that I'm not so distracting.

I work out at the Rec until Jacob graduates. So I don't need a new gym, but maybe we could just join up on Saturdays or one night a week (or really whatever works for you) to do long runs together or something.... Lemme know what you think...
