Happy Monday everyone! Hope ya’ll had a great weekend. We had a busy weekend over here – on Saturday we watched one of Ava’s friends for the day and yesterday we had Ava’s regularly-scheduled swim class in the late-morning, followed by two birthday parties. 🙂[Read more…]
I’m not exactly sure when I became a “runner” as I have been described as. I ran cross-country in high school, and then ran pretty regularly through college, and post college (at least three times a week).

I realize that this “wish list” is a little ridiculous since I have not yet run my first half marathon. This will happen on March 16 when I run the D.C. Rock “N” Roll Half Marathon. However in my defense, I strongly believe I will love the race so much I will catch the running bug and will want to run some other half marathons. Isn’t there a saying when talking about half marathons and marathons “it’s more mental than physical”? (I have also been thinking about this way too much this week).

So I finally did it – I signed up for my first ever half marathon. A few friends and I will be running the 2013 DC Rock ‘N’ Roll Half! Am I terrified? You bet.
