One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Starting the Cabo Countdown!!

Really don't have much to write about these days... just trying to get back into a routine now that the madness of the holidays is over with. I love Christmas-time & all the festivities so much --- it is always a tough adjustment for me once January comes. I have been keeping busy though, and trying to spend some extra time in the gym... since we will be in Mexico in 10 days!!!!! Not sure I was thinking clearly when I planned a beach vacation so close to Xmas cookie season!

Thought I would include a couple more pics from around Christmas... here is Evelyn in her new rain jacket:
Noah received the same jacket in red -- here he is with my dad when we took a trip to NW Trek (a wildlife area with elk, bear, moose, etc)Cute jackets are from LLBean -- highly recommend them! A good quality rain coat is very important when you live in the Pacific Northwest! :)

In workout news, I am thinking about registering for a half marathon. I need to decide pretty quick... since I should get on a training plan ASAP (it is March 20th). The down-side: it is on Mercer Island and it is a pretty hilly and tough course. The up-side: it benefits colon cancer prevention/research which means a lot to me and my family.

When is the FL 1/2 marathon? Are you going to try for a full marathon this year? I am hoping to run a couple 5Ks and a 10K, but we will see. I need to do some research and see when they are so I can get my rear in gear.

Also, we definitely need to touch base this week!!! Miss you!

P.S. Noah is a spitting image of your dad :)

Have fun on your vacation, I'm sure warm weather will be a welcome change from winter!

I'm the same way about the 'after Christmas' time. I get bummed after all the business is done.

I'm still debating on doing the 10K or 25K in Grand Rapids...it's not til mid-May so I have a few weeks to decide, but I haven't been running much, I need to get my biscuits in gear if it's going to be the 25K!
