Packing Break!

This will be my last post from my hometown...

We will be loading the Uhaul tomorrow and heading out Saturday Morning!

I have been packing so many boxes that we don't have any more room to put the boxes in this apartment! I have no idea how we crammed this much stuff in this tiny place!
 There are even more boxes in the bedroom!

We are going from a population of 113, 866 to a population of 727,575. And that is only in Fort Worth! The DFW metroplex has 6,447,615!!! That is so big! Not what I am used to, but I am up for the challenge!! :)

I ran the last time here as a resident of the city. We will back, all of our family & friends live here, so I can't say it will be last run here ever. I decided to run in the morning. This is the first time I have done this since about July...It was beautiful outside and there was a very nice breeze. I will have to make it a point to run more during the day though. The sun beating down is something I will have to get used to before my race. I was actually faster on this run than I am when my hubby runs with me. It was surprising since he always pushes me. My walking was slower though. I was just so tired! I know it had to have been from the sun. I was just so drained and thirsty. I learned I need more water on my runs in the sun to! Ha What a concept huh? :) I am excited to run my first run in Fort Worth! It will be the first day of Week 9 and a 30 min. run! I am hoping to make it to 2.25 miles. 2.5 would be fabulous though! :) After Week's 1/2 Marathon training time!!!


  1. Woo Hoo! I cannot wait for you to get to Fort Worth! You are gonna love it. We will have to go exploring for some awesome running paths together. There are a lot in the city, and I'm sure there are quite a few nearby!

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

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 BOB Revolution 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 . Th
