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.
