half marathon


I ran a half marathon today. Yay! It felt good, even though Christmas break was a little brutal to my training. Ollie ran the last 100 yards with me. It was fun to have him running as fast as he could next to me. I made my goal time by 5 seconds! Phew!

I can't believe Ollie is so big...the last time I saw him he was a newborn!!!! Sure wish you could come to Texas and take some picture of us! I have a blogsite too, it's set on private so send me your e-mail address and I'll send you an invite!

Hey Annie! I was excited that your blog is not private anymore. I had looked in on your previous blog (from a link on someone else's) a few times without commenting and then you went private... guess that's what I get for being a stalker. Anyway, I'm really impressed with your half marathon - way to go! And the kiddos are cute; they look like good kids. (It's hard to believe that we have 4-5 year olds now.) Time flies.

I have started adding running to my daily workout. I just ran 2 solid minutes at a speed of 5.0. Watch out, I might pass you in the next race.
