Motivation from a random *hot* guy :)

Well, I'm falling back into a great exercise groove now that baseball is finally over. I have been back to some of my favorite classes at the gym and was able to keep up my usual stamina and *feeling great* after each class.
One area that is harder for me to "jump back in" is the running. I was on such a good schedule and really building with each week. And so, I've been trying to run a little each day to try and get back where I was. I am signed up for a half marathon in October and am not convinced that I will be able to complete it (runnning).
So, it was a beautiful cool morning here and decided I'm going to get three miles in today. I started out pretty strong and was feeling good. About a mile in my ankles start hurting?? This is a new one for me. I've had problems with getting my breathing under control before but never really had pain. I'm trying to push through but end up having to walk up the one nice hill of the run. I was feeling like a failure but shook it off and started back to running at the top of the hill. I made it to about the 2.8 mile point and started with the weird ankle pain again and was slowing up when some very sweet guy came out of his house and started cheering me on. He cheered ...come on..don't stop now...looking good:) Well, it perked me right up and off I went and finished my run strong! Now, I was thinking he may have been goofing on a RWC girl(kristina trademark:) but at that point whether his intentions were pure or not it motivated me...so thanks random hot guy!
And thanks to all my sparkies that always continue to motivate and inspire me!
Still not sure what's up with ankle pain but I am in need of new running shoes...so maybe that's it???
