Wahoooooo Wednesday

Wahoooooo its Wednesday....... this week is FLYING by, and pretty soon I'll be Flying outta town for some vacation!

First, let me provide a tiny running update.

Its been oh, hmm, a good week or two since I've 'really' ran. On Thanksgiving morning I did a 4 mile run in Ohio - just realized I didnt write about that, sorry folks.
Then with being busy with work and going to Bikram Yoga, my running has been in the 2-3 mile range (which isnt horrible, its just I neeeeeeed to up my mileage since I have this tiny 1/2 marathon coming up).

So last night Brett and I went running.... we ran separate and then he met up with me for miles 3-4.  I broke in the new shoes last night and oh dear wow, I forgot how much that sucks. But its what I needed as I ran my 2nd 10K last night. It was awesome. No mental issues, body felt good, had a little chafing, but when I finished I was the happiest girl ever- because my new official time is 1:01:19. Wahoooooo!

Now what makes Wednesday Wahoo is the fact that tomorrow, my mom comes into town!!
She gets to see our house decorated for Christmas!

Love having the house decorated for Christmas. :)  Just wish I was going to be home to enjoy it. Yet again the husband and I have vacation in December, we head for Europe this weekend.  We'll be back soon enough - and I can already tell its going to be rough getting home and logging some miles.

Gotta go pack!

Weekend Re-Cap

So this weekend, the inlaws and I celebrated Bretts 29th Birthday, by going to Asia & Africa.... oh yah know just a quick 30ish mile drive away at Disney's Animal Kingdom. hahah. Had ya fooled almost right?

The weather was great this weekend so a lot of the animals were actually out when we went on the 'safari'.

We also went on Expedition Everest - the newest roller coaster.

One Word - AWESOME! It goes forward and backwards. I'm really at a loss of words on how else to describe it.

In addition to that-  this weekend was the OUC 1/2 Marathon and 5K. I didnt sign up for the 1/2 Marathon like I was encouraged to do, nor did I sign up for the 5K.  Being an accountant, it was month end close Thursday & Friday and I had 2 back to back late nights.... so Saturday on my way to Bikram Yoga, I see the race finishing up and tons of people with their medals..... it made me sad.  I wish I would have just sucked it up and gone and attempted my 1st 1/2 marathon but Disney is about 30 days away! OMG!!!
