So I finished the Carlsbad half marathon and although it wasn’t easy, I did not get injured and I finished in 2:01! If I had been looking at my time ( I purposely DID NOT look at my time...I just wanted to do my best) I might have been able to squeak in under 2, so I am so stoked and excited about it, that I don’t want to let all the training go to waste, so I signed up for another one!! I figure, I actually kind of like running (up until about 7 or 8 miles..then not so much!!) and it’s beautiful here, so why not just keep going?? Here is a pic of me and my constant inspiration, Patty, who inspires me to do better every run!
Patty is a faster runner than me, which I have decided really helps you when you are training because you push a little harder just to keep up with them!! She too, is a twin Mommy and I am so glad that she is my running buddy!!! Patty had an asthma attack during the race and still finished in a really good time so we both are excited to get another shot in 6 weeks. Not to mention the fact that the shirt and medal they have developed for this race are just amazing….check it out:
So yes folks, I am doing it for the shirt and the medal and to get under 2 hours. Madness, but you know what? It keeps me moving!!! I have 10 pounds left to lose!!
I wanted to show you guys how I decorated my house for New Years because I thought it was cute…at the last minute we decided to have a family come over for a low key New Years so I threw some decorations together and thought they were pretty good for not buying anything...here is the table..with the clock..get it??
Here is my buffet near the front door:
and for all the stamper’s out there, here is a cute card that I got in swap I recently participated in that was made by Dee Shore…isn’t it “unBEElievably” cute?
Ciao for now….Deidre
