so so long ago

This morning I remembered that I once upon a time did a blog. It has been so fun looking through all of our posts. I think I want to start up again. I mostly have been doing instagram, which is quick and easy, but the blog seems to give a bit more of a journal feel. Let's me remember a little bit better... I guess they both do the same thing, but it was fun to look back. 
Here we are today, so grown up

Chiggity Check this out

I love that my basement is making progress, here is a whole new room that was created for our utilities (water softener, water heater, and furnace). Still lots to do, but we're workin on it.

Thanks Gary, Jordan, and Aaron for all you hard work!

11 Minute increase!

It is Sunday night, pain still fully enforced in my legs and I keep thinking what my next 1/2 marathon goal should be? I could always try to increase my time, but I am super pleased with my time on this race. To me speed is not everything - each race I do I am reminded of how the only person you are competing with is yourself. Because I am not a competitive person it is the perfect sport for me. The entire idea of running a race, even a 5k (3.1 miles), was completely undoable a year ago, here I am now wondering what the next step will bring. I am happy to say that I am enjoying running - it is no longer a thorn in my side.

13.1 - two

This weekend brings my second half marathon. Although my training for this event has not been as diligent as my first, I feel good and excited for the challenge. In my preparations for this race I was able to run the course - it takes you through some fun neighborhoods of well kept yards (always a favorite of mine), and some cute older homes. There are moments of down hill which will be great for momentum and rest of pushing myself forward.

Spring break is here! I am so excited to have some time off, hopefully the weather will cooperate. Aaron on I are on our way down to St. George for time away from the kids. Thanks Mom and Steve for taking them for the weekend. Who knows what we will do, but that is the best part about vacation. Enjoy your kids this week my friends.

My new favorite thing

Van is LOVING reading, he wants to read books to himself, he wants to have books read to him, and he wants to read to Finn each night before bed. He is such a good big brother - the first night he read to Finn before bed was the cutest thing I have ever seen. They read and finished a book, then Van says "OK Finn, lets say a prayer" They then got on the floor to pray, it was so sweet. Of course I did not have my camera out and ready, so this is a partial replay of the new nightly reading ritual.

Dear Friends and Family

Next time you see me and/or my sweet ride, please tell me how good my new tires look. It was the most un-fun, un-satisfying thing I have ever spent money on. - oh well, that's life. Right?
