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?

This is what PRO Compression has to say about how they work:

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…
