These are simply running notes for myself. Nothing too interesting folks, sorry!
Week 1 - treadmill only
Week 1 was interesting. I quickly learned that proper running shoes are a must. Just look at my times from run 1 to run 2 for proof!
Mentally, I need to set the display on the treadmill to "distance" and only focus on making it to the designated point. For the first few weeks, this will be 3 miles. While I want to improve on my time, I do not want this to be my main focus.
Had an awesome idea during my second run. See, during my first run I took along a fitness magazine. While I couldn't exactly read it, I could flip pages, look at those tone bodies, and read the larger motivational quotes throughout. During run two I forgot, and was a bit bored. I had the idea to create a motivational poster designated to running. Going to work on making this and will then display it on the wall in front of the treadmill. I think I need the Indy-Mini logo in the middle, to remind me of the main focus for my training...13.1!
3 miles - treadmill - 1% grade
Run 1 - 41:39
Run 2 - 35:17 (new shoes)
12/2 - 188
12/9 - 185
Tomorrow is my first scheduled run for week 2. Can't wait!
Oh, and some of you asked to see my shoes...they are Brooks PureCadance 2 and I love them. I did have to go a full size larger and this worked perfect!

Hi everyone! I was hoping to write a decent blog, but as usual, I am pressed for time. I started a new class this week and I haven't exactly been motivated to read my textbook and now it's "do or die" time...LOL!
I didn't get the greatest pics of miss Carly. Every time I try to take her picture she comes after me! Speaking of which, she has taken her first steps!! I cannot believe it! Chad was an early walker (9 months too) and now Carly is too I guess!
She didn't mind the bunny costume and seemed to enjoy the other kids out and about on trick-or-treat night!
Preston decided to be a police officer again and did a handsome job of it!
(Chad was with his dad, and Emily went with some friends to "hang out")
The one plus to only one child trick-or-treating this year...not as much candy in the house!
Oh, and here are our pumpkins. They are, from L to R, Carly's (done by daddy), Chad's (it's a Minecraft Creeper), Emily's (done by her), and Preston's (done by me).
Alright, I have to hit the books, but hope to write a "real" blog soon!

Hopefully the link works...here are P's pics we had done yesterday at Target. He was very shy at first, but slowly he warmed up.
P5 is going on the wall and we also ordered E5 cuz it was so cute :-)
Alright, I have a paper to write (due today) and then it's on to finals week starting tomorrow. Don't be surprised if I'm quiet this week!
Take care everyone, and keep on moving...

Thought I'd share some pic's from Preston's birthday on Sunday. My little man is now 5! Originally the plan was to take him to Chuck E. Cheese...something he'd been requesting since last year. However, when the time got close, he said he didn't want to do that. So hubs and I said "how about we give you money and take you to the toy store for a shopping spree?" Of course he was delighted at that idea!
Preston's not in school or anything, so he doesn't really have any friends his age to invite to a party, and with no family close, there wasn't much of a point in a party. We did get him some presents to open (as did Emily and Chad) and we had cake & ice cream later in the day.
Here are the pic's! He's not specifically into John Deere, or farming...he calls these "work vehicles" LOL!
The cake...Grave Digger!
I'm glad Preston's birthday is in September, because the other three are in January, February, and March! No time to even recoup from Christmas, LOL!
Thanks for checking out my blog!
