|See the silvers? Almost all grown in!|
If you are thinking about it, I will warn you that this process is not for the feint of heart! But I can say that I'm very happy that I decided to do this. To be honest, I get more compliments on my hair now than I ever did while I was coloring it. I think the trick is to use purple shampoo occasionally to keep the silvers from getting brassy and to make them shine.
Making my List, Checking it (off) Twice: I have my half marathon training plan posted on the refrigerator. I've now successfully checked off the first two workouts. Both were listed as "30 min" which I completed on the bike trainer while I'm waiting for my toe and knee to get better. Tomorrow I plan for an easy walk of 4-ish miles and Saturday will be my "5 mile long run" which may end up translating to an hour on the trainer. I'm convinced that the key to my success will be flexibility, adaption, and a positive attitude!
Race Planning: I'm eyeing the local Sweetheart Run, scheduled for Feb 9th, for my comeback run. Not thinking of it as a race so much as a fun run. It will be held the weekend of the first week that I expect to be able to run. It's a special event to me because it's always the weekend that Husband & I celebrate our birthdays, so I really hope to be able to participate.
Happy New Year!!!!
