things are slowing down.
school is finished. yay!
(got A's in both classes)
time for a needed break.  next semester its organic chemistry and statistics.

the kids are on vacation after today, and so is rich.  two weeks to enjoy and just relax, play and run :)  maybe we'll hit the snow.  i would love to try snowshoeing.
been running 4-5 days a week and doing my strength/core work twice a week.  i ran with the 5 a.m. group from sierra challenge express yesterday morning. very fun to run with such a large group of people, eventhough i was bringin up the rear.  these are some fast people. the weather has been foggy in the mornings with a light mist, so its even more beautiful to run by headlamp.

the tree is up. and we lucked out this year. got an 11 ft flocked tree. and it is gorgeous!  i put the lights on it, and the kids added all the ornaments.  my friend, kristina, bought me a special ornament with 26.2 on it to commemorate the year i ran my first marathon.  such a thoughtful gift. love it.  we've been enjoying the tree by playing lots of board games while laying in front of it with a crackling fire in the background.
i've been building back up my mileage. this week i will be up to 35 miles, and next week up to 40 or so. i plan to keep running with the group on tuesday/thursday mornings, and maybe sundays for my long run.   

looking forward to the weekend, my sister is coming for a visit and just want to enjoy the time we spend together.  want to soak in all the time with her and the kids and really enjoy and relish in time spent with family.  we have a craft for the kids planned and then roasting marshmallows in the fireplace and making smores.  its supposed to rain, so this will be fun.
