Let the Countdown Begin!

Well here we are! The week of the half-marathon! Man time flies!! So I don't really know if I am ready or not! I have been running, and running and running! I don't expect to break any records! I just hope to finish! Preferably not LAST! I am very nervous about this. For some reason I am thinking that I will be judged if I don't run it fast enough! What is fast? I don't know. I guess it just depends who you are talking too. I am not setting my goals high. I hope to finish the race in under three hours! That is almost a 14 minute mile pace. To me that seems really slow. But it also seems realistic! Although I have been running at least 4 days a week since deciding I was going to do this, I have not always stuck to the training schedule. It is tough to stick to a schedule when you have other things you need to be doing! But I will try and I will finish!!

Enough of the rambling! Now for a couple of pictures!

Kelsey's First Night at Track!

Oh the memories! Track started tonight!! This was something I did when I was little! It is a program that has been around for years. The same guy is still there!! It was very cute and Kelsey loved every minute of it! She also had a little friend from daycare who was also signed up! They stuck together the entire night and were so cute together!!

My parents also came out to watch all the fun! It was their anniversary yesterday! Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!!

What a Day!

Wow today has been a productive but busy day!! The morning started with a 10K race!! This was a little tough! I don't know how I am going to make it through the half-marathon but I am still going to try!! I was so lucky to have Amy running with me today!! She kept me going!! THANKS, AMY!! If only she could run the half marathon with me! Today we had beautiful weather and we were able to run 9:56 minute miles! We finshed the 6.2 miles in one hour and one minute!

This was after the race! I was thinking thank god it is over! : )

After the run we went to lunch with Geoff and Adam. We had a nice time!! Then it was onto cleaning out the storage room, the closets and just the junk in general! We made a lot of progress and there is a light at the end of the tunnel! You don't realize how much you stuff you have until you start going through it!!

I just finished folding about five loads of laundry and I am ready for bed!! I hope tomorrow is more relaxing!! I need a little break!!

Lacking In Pictures!

So I have been lacking in the picture department!! I didn't really even get any birthday pictures up! However, here are some cute pictures!! On Friday night we went to Kobe's Steakhouse! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE going there!! They have great food and it is always lots of fun!! We got to see some good friends that we have not seen in awhile!! Kelsey loved using chopsticks! They brought her out her own with "training wheels"! :) That is what I need for mine!

This picutre is from this morning!! Spring has arrived and it is supposed to be in the 70's today!! We are very excited about this! She got to wear capri pants, short sleeve shirt and flip flops!! I also found these adorable headwraps at Children's Place!! She looked so cute this morning! I will have to get a better headshot to see the cute headwrap!

One Less Thing to Be Stressed About!

Well the house thing is a done deal! Finally all the inspections are done and all deals are worked out! I can now sleep at night and not have to worry about going back and forth!! Plus I KNOW we will be moving! Before I was worried something would not work out and we would go through all this again! I don't know if I could handle that!! Now I am very excited about looking for a new house. I went for a run tonight in my parents neighborhood and I loved seeing all the kids outside and cute houses! This will be fun now!!!
So about running!! Yeah I am still running! Tonight I went about five miles!! Just trying to get ready for that 10K on Saturday!! I know this one will be easy since I will be in the company of my dear friend Amy! Maybe I will get some pictures from this one!! However the countdown is on! The half-marathon is so close!! Only a couple weeks away!! I think I can . . . I think I can . . . I think I can . . . SAY IT WITH ME! I will need all the support I can get!!

I am Bad at This!

So I thought I would have all this time to post and that I would update all the time!  Then the whirl wind started!  I am still training for the half marathon, trying to pack/move and trying to keep up at work!  The days just FLY by!!!!  Work, cook dinner, play with Kelsey, spend time with Geoff, workout, pick up the house, laundry, go to bed!  I just feel that I have so much going on right now!  I feel a lot of pressure right now to run this half-marathon!  I want to do this!  I just want it to be over!  I have put a lot of time into training and I have worked hard!  I can do it!  I might pass out after I cross the finish line but I am determined to make it!  It will be a nice accomplishment!  So it is less than a month away!  Next week is the 6 mile race!!  I am VERY excited to have my dear friend Amy running that one with me!  It will be nice to have her pushing me along the way!!!  Thanks, Amy!  You are such a GREAT friend!
