Oklahoma Running Mom

Running in Oklahoma adds new meaning to the phrase "Hot Mama."

I had my six week post baby check up yesterday and I'm officially free to exercise. HOORAY! I celebrated by a late night run yesterday and tonight (by late night I mean 8:30 which is pretty late for me these days). As I was running in the freezing cold, I glanced up at the sky full of stars and thought of one of my favorite poems.

When I heard the learn'd astronomer;
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me;
When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them;
When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with much applause in the lecture-room,
How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick;
Till rising and gliding out, I wander'd off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look'd up in perfect silence at the stars.
-Walt Whitman
Ah...it's great to be back!
