It's been soooo long!

Hey spark friends (if I have any of you left, i've been gone so long!).
The past few months have been AMAZING! I had a wonderful summer and a now getting internet turned back on since the weather is starting to cool down and more and more time will slowly be spent indoors (blah.) So I will be able to keep up with my spark page! Woot woot! I miss it so much, I notice that I stay much better on track when I have spark to log my food and exercise. Good 'ol paper and pencil just ain't as fun! I have kept exercising and eating healthy though. I am down to 168 lbs as of today, in case you don't remember I gave birth in Feb at 250 lbs. So while i still have some weight to drop I am happy with my progress.
I ran a half marathon at 6 months post partum, wooohoo!! It was nice to be back in the game. i wanted to beat my old time but unfortunately came in a few minutes slower than in 2010 but I will take finishing as a victory. The race was the 2nd annual Eugene womens half so we took a little roadtrip. Here are some pics....
. We ran the race, did some shopping and visited some wineries, it was wonderful!! I was singing a different song at mile 10 of the half, wow was I feeling blah. The wineries the day before probably didn't help much but my sister was running with me and being the best cheerleader you could imagine. It was her first race since high school track and she was floating through the air all 13.1 miles. I am so jealous that running comes so easy to her. I am not a great runner but I try my best! Next half marathon is in Nov and my hubby is training with me so I'm very excited for that!
We also got family pictures taken since I was last online, thought I would share a couple...
Now I'm raising my glass (of water) to the next 10 lbs I am going to lose, I'm excited to have my spark friends back with me for the journey!
