Wille - Get USED TO THIS COLOR!!!
MUHAHAHAHAHA..... The game is fast approaching.... You had better find your happy place before the Gators have a nice little Sooner Schooner snack. Yumm!!! :)
We had a good Christmas overall. Jeff and I were both sick Christmas day. Not, can't get out of bed sick, but run-down, bad sinus headache, congestion, mild fever sick. We didn't even open presents until that afternoon after we'd slept in. But, the good thing about us being sick is that we didn't have to make the 8 hour trek to his parent's house. (YIPPEE!!!!). Now we still have to go at the end of January for a couple of days (Boo...) but at least it won't be during the holiday madness.
I've got to get a couple of decent long runs in before the Mardi Gras half. I've actually been doing really well with the running. I've been running 4 miles every other day and then walking the dogs for about 3 miles too. I just can't do every day right now because my knee is screaming at me with the weather and cold fronts. So, I just have to adjust my schedule. But, cool news is I haven't had a run pace over 9:46 yet! Pretty sweet! I just need to log a couple of long runs to be prepared for Mardi Gras. I'm not going to try and PR this race or anything...just have fun with it. Jeff has been making noises about possibly run/walking it with me too.
This year I just want to keep working to get faster and faster. Hopefully by this time next year I'll be down to 9:00s! Oh, and I have several friends who are talking about running the Chicago full this year. Hmmmm....do I want another punishing? :)
Now everyone go have a crazy (but safe) New Year's Eve and I'll see you guys next year!
Today I LOVE: the thought of Willie in Orange and Blue.
