Half marathon

I figure the more people I tell - then I cannot flake out.  That and doing early registration.   Christina and I are going to run a half marathon in May.  She ran it last year, but only trained four times....  Her feet paid the price, so she wanted to do it right this year.  And she roped me into it.  

No really, I do love running, but haven't done it in YEARS.  So - carrying around a little extra baby weight - I am excited to have started training with Chrissy and getting back in shape.  It feels so great to be back into it.  We are starting slow, but boy am I still feeling it.  Lola is LOVING it!  

So I'll keep everyone updated on our progress.  I am looking forward to it!

We have a new dog park close to our house.  Lola loves it.  So far we have not met other dogs there that actually want to play with her.  They have all been ball dogs - but we are hoping.  She really is a dog's dog and misses her Bear.  We are considering rescuing an middle-aged Rottie.  It will be awhile yet, but I think she would love it.   The girls like the walk to the dog park and enjoy watching Lola run around like a crazy pup.

Here are a few other pics just for fun.   Kena wanted me to take a picture of our feet one day... Silly girl.  We went to playgroup today and she & Tay had a great time.  Ken & Kandice's house remodel is gorgeous.  For the first time in forever all the girls & kids were there.  They all actually played nicely together.  

Okay - still having issues with the pictures...  Will update tomorrow.

Hey - two times in one week!  Pretty good...

Good luck on the marathon. I am sure you will do well. My pics do the same thing. I don't know what the deal is.

Yay! I can't wait to hear that you were successful.

Try using PB to shrink them too!
