December Check in

Thursday, December 05, 2013

Hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving! We did, and did some major Thanksgivakkah celebrating as well. I just got finished with the Seattle half, it didn't go quite as planned. My last race I ran about 8:30 miles, so this time I was hoping for more like 8 minute miles. But with getting sick a bunch and life in general I ended up running a 1:58 over the half marathon which is more like a 9 minute mile. I have mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, I wish I ran a better race. I walked a lot and just felt crummy, but then again I know I am fit and life is good and I am happy I ran it! (some pics for you)

I have another race in January so I have time for a re-do! I also am trying to get my weight down, I put on about 5 pounds over the last 3 months, I am back down to 3 to loose but I am trying hard to stick to my plan over the holidays so I can run strong in January!

In other news my little girl is turning ONE! in just about 2 weeks. I really can't believe it, this year has just FLOWN by. It has been the best year of my life, hands down and I am looking forward to her party but also feeling a little sad- it is hard to see your baby grow so quickly! We just love her to bits!

    What a great update! I'm glad that although you didn't run the time you wanted, that you can still see your race as a win. I wouldn't be able to do it! Happy Birthday to your little one!

    I can't believe that your daughter is almost 1 - time does fly emoticon
