6 days!

It has been 6 days since I have ran or blogged! I feel like I haven't done anything except drive and stare at cardboard boxes for the last 6 days! We spent all day Friday packing up the Uhaul. It took almost 6 hours since we had to carry everything we owned down stairs! My in-laws, my mom, and our friend Cla came to help us. We then then drove to my parents house to stay the night. We were so exhausted that we were in bed by 8:30PM and asleep by 9! We were up at 7AM Saturday to make the long drive to Fort Worth. It took us almost the full 6 hours to get there, because we had to drive slower in the Uhaul. It was a good trip, however. Very little traffic! When we arrived at the apartment, several friends and family members showed up tp help us move in. It took less than an hour to bring everything in! We had almost 10 people show up to help! 

Thank you Cla, Jeffery, Keith, Brad, Cheri, and Alan! And of course a HUGE thanks to my parents and in-laws!! You guys are the best!!! :)

On Monday night our friends Jackie and Brad cooked us a wonderful home-cooked meal for dinner. It was great! We were so sick of eating fast food, so this was a fabulous option! Thank you for making us feel so welcome in our new city! :) Looking forward to many more dinners together now that we are so close! :)

We came back to my parents yesterday so the hubby could work his last day at the church and so I could clean the old apartment and turn over the keys. My mom and mom-in-law came to help with the apartment today. It looked great! Thanks moms! :) 

We drive back to the big city tomorrow morning. I am looking forward to going to our new home and just sitting! Haha :) The last 6 days have been exhausting! The hubby starts his new job Monday, so we will have at least 3 days to be on our own and just rest. We have a cute little patio now and we looking forward to sitting and drinking coffee in the mornings! :) We are ready to explore the area and see what our new city looks like!

Still excited about running in our new city...not looking forward to all of the hills! I never realized how hilly that area is! Haha! I just hope it'd not like starting over with my training! :)

Now, as I have promised, I have a pair of Compression socks OR sleeves to giveaway from PRO Compression!

This is what PRO Compression has to say about how they work:
"PRO Compression socks are designed specifically to deliver both maximum comfort and speedy recovery times. The science is complex, but benefits such as improved blood flow, stability and comfort are universally understood.  The moment you put these socks on your feet and incorporate them into your game, you will feel and understand the difference."
I have 4 pairs of PRO Compression Marathon socks and I LOVE them! They have been wonderful for recovery after my last two halfs and after my long training runs!
I didn't own any after my first half, and it took me almost 2 weeks until I could …

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful!
We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do!
It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option.
We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :)
And that's not all of the big news!
I also got a job!
It is an office job, where I will be doing t…

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :)
I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love...
My BOBRevolution SE!
I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here! :)

My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces!

They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes!
I love their moto!
Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray.
In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver.
This i the Personal Saver I carry it on my keychain everyw…
