Park Problem Solved! :)

Looks like I have found my park! It's about 10 min. away driving, but it is totally worth it! My run wasn't all that exciting, but the Park was! :)

Here are my new running buddies! :) They are fun to watch while running by! :)
 Yes that's my finger...The sun was very bright and I didn't see it! lol :)

I just love it all!

 Stopping to take pictures! :)
I have to Thank my mom who actually Google Maped this Park for me! :) So glad she found it! :) 
As for the run, I really don't know how long the trail is, so I don't even know how far I went! I made it all the way around, walking, in less than 15 min. so I am thinking that it is at least a mile. If it is, then I did 3 miles today! If not, then...I don't know! It's times like these that I wish I had my Garmin! :) For the first 2 laps, I decided to just Run/Walk. I would run 5 min. walk for 1 or 2 min. Then the last lap I just walked the whole time. Just to enjoy it! I just have to say...the hills are killer! I love when you get to go down, of course, but going from flat land in my hometown to a hill every 5 seconds...I just know I will feel it tomorrow!!!  It will take some practice to get back up to running 30 min. straight without walking up those hills! But I will do it! I have time to work on it right now, since I am still unemployed! :) I can't wait to go back again tomorrow! :)

And what's better than icing your shins after a nice run?
Sticking them in a 30°F pool!!! (There is actually a gauge for temp, that's how I knew) It was pretty out by the apartment's pool today,  so I decided to sit and relax for a moment! It felt good, until my toes turned purple. :)

Off the park topic for a moment....For all of you Pumpkin lovers...
I give you the Pumpkin Pie Smoothie with Bubbles (Tapioca) from Fat Straws!
OMG it was yummy! My brother Jeff introduced this to me yesterday! It was so good! :)
BTW...He's playing Guitar tomorrow at the Opening Bell Coffee Shop in Dallas, TX! Everyone should come by and hear! He's great! :)

Do any of you have a favorite place to run, walk, bike...or just picnic?


  1. Glad you found a good place to run!

  2. Looks like a great place to run! OMG that pumpkin pie smoothie looks so good! I love running on this trail that runs along a river and it's covered with tree...HEAVEN!

Cowtown Half Recap!

On Sunday, February 24, 2013 I ran my first official Half Marathon!  Before the race started, I met up with these fellow MRTT ladies!  Pic from How My World Runs It was freezing cold (yes 33 degrees is freezing to this Texan! haha) and I was hoping it wouldn't warm up too much because I run so much better in the cold. I ended up wearing my jacket the whole time and was completely comfortable! We had a wind advisory in affect and I think the wind made it even cooler. This was also my first time to run with my new haircut and with my hair down! Didn't bother me at all! Short hair for the win! :) I was in the very last Corral to start. Yes, I know I'm slow. Get Over it!<---Saw that saying on several shirts throughout the race!  Looks like I need one! haha :) I had to post this pic, because I have no idea what I was doing, nor remember even taking it! Haha! About 20 min before the race, I headed to the porta potty's. Yeah, I should have

Starting over with something new.

Way back in 2012 I started running...for reals... I ran my first Virtual Half Marathon in June and then in the Fall, I started meeting up with a Moms RUN This Town friend 3-4 days a week to walk/run 3-4 miles with our kiddos in the stroller. We started training for the Cowtown Half Marathon and I started dropping weight. By December, I had lost 35 lbs (this was total since having Sophie, not just in 2-3 months) and I looked the best I had looked in a very long while. Then I ran the Cowtown Half in February of 2013, hurt my hip, stopped running, walked the Dallas Rock N Roll Half a month later and then stopped running for good until August of 2013. I then started trying to pick it up a bit here and there while also participating in Stroller Strides.  The thing is...I started gaining weight once I stopped running. Didn't matter if I was doing stroller strides. I just kept getting bigger. First it was just 10 lbs. I kept it at that 10 lb weight gain from August until January
