It is a GREAT DAY!! WHY...because I have sunshine in my heart!!

This week-end was filled with WONDERFUL sunshine and warmer temperatures.... a true blessing for us as we needed to play outside! Today on the way to teach Mommy and Me class Jackson asked a question.

"Mom, where is the sunshine today?" (It is very cloudy and overcast today with much lower temperature than the last 2 days.)

I told him that the clouds were blocking the sun today, but that it was still in the sky.
He proceed to tell me that he didn't like the clouds!
I told him that I too like the sun, but the clouds aren't a bad thing as long as we can keep SUNSHINE in our hearts!!
He said..."that's good mom! SUNSHINE in my heart!!"

So let SUNSHINE be in your heart no matter what the skies look like!!

TODAY IS A GOOD DAY...REJOICE and be glad in it!!!

Oh, and by the way... I rocked on Saturday morning!
FINISHED my first EVER 20 miles!! Best part...I wasn't really sore the next day or today. Just a little tight in the hamstrings...not bad!! Thanks to the sunshine and my friend Molly's strength for pulling me though the last few miles! ( She is 34 just had a baby last week...which was a mircle after having a mastectomy and chemo for breast cancer WHILE pregnant (they found the cancer when she was 8weeks)...she starts round 2 chemo this week.) I thought of her those last few miles...and lifted my legs up because of her!!! Each step was hard...but after what she's been battling I thought...suck it up and RUN!
I would be humbled if you would keep her close in prayer this week.

Now...what did you do this week-end???

Can't wait to hear!!!

GET UP and GO...

20 miles!

This is what my face looks like when I think of 20 miles!!

That's right...20 miles! What do you think of when you see 20 miles typed? 20 miles to the next rest area? 20 miles to get home from work? 20 miles to your favorite place to eat?

Well 20 miles is my GOAL for tomorrow...RUNNING for 3 to 3 1/1 hours is what 20 miles means to me!
Wish me luck!
What are you going to do to sweat this week-end??
Hope it's more fun than running 20 miles!

Wednesday...again??? Snow day

This reminds me of Chronicles of Narnia...the wintery white snow and the lamp post?

Cj was having fun running and bouncing in the snow.

We stayed in and they made a "bed" in the hallway and were "resting"!!

Hoping that you are warm and are keeping up with the exercise.
I logged 18miles this past Saturday! Crazy to run for 3 hours straight!!!
So ready for spring!!

Happy February

Our first "BUILD A BEAR " experience! My good friend Nickie, had a birthday party for her daughter Ellie! We took on the BUILD A BEAR store and conquered!
Dane went with a teddy now known as "Cuddles" and Jackson decided on a wolf name "Broady". Fun times!
Hoping that you are starting February off right and planning your exercise days! TAKE CARE of your HEART and get those cardio workouts in...not to mention calorie burners!!
