Cake, congratulations!!! My word, 23 miles over!! You are amazing! (But I see you're a little crazy too, wanting to major in English! Welcome to the club! Lol!! )

Ican, and that is why you are an English major and not a math major, lol!!!! J/K! Wow, now that really is topping off April with a bang, running a 10K!! Good luck!!

Ms_P, I know you will be so happy to be settled and to get your computer set back up! We'll be happy to have you back regularly too!

FSA, I'm sorry TOM has returned so early for you. I'm probably going to be dealing with it in the first week of May, ugh. Not a fun way to start off the month, but at least I'll get it over with!

Meant to do a 10k today but after about 4 miles I started to feel a bit off, so I only managed about a 5 mile run (still, at the beginning of April, running 5 miles would have been almost unimaginable. Amazing what can change in a month).
My April totals: 58.4/19.0/39.4

Congratulations on a great month CakeBatter, Jacqui, FullSteamAhead, Ms P, Lewisempire, Terapet and any ladies out there I've missed! You guys have been a great source of support throughout this crazy month - - I probably would have sat on my butt, stressed as all ****, and never accomplished all the hard work I needed to do!

See you all tomorrow in May!

PS: Jacqui my in ability to add is definitely one of the reasons I'm not a math major--maybe i should start running only whole miles, to make it easier on myself!

Thanks ladies for a fun month of exercising. You were very helpful and motivating. Especially when I allowed all that anxiety to get in my way. I am feeling much better these days and hope to keep it that way. Congrats to all of you who made goal. I tallied all my minutes by type of exercise and found that very interesting. I should be able to use the April statistics to set some kind of goals for May although I know May is going to be crazy. Thanks again for all the great encouragement.
