Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

We aren't doing anything special today, because our Anniversary is in 2 weeks! :)
I did buy Sophie a new Tag Junior Book and (of course) a Valentine's Balloon though!
She LOVES her balloons! :)

For the past week, Sophie has been sick...
Like really sick.

I won't get into the very gross details, but she spent a lot of time laying on he floor or in someones arms.
It was so sad to see her like this.
She was not herself at all!

We actually took her in to Urgent Care Saturday night, because she hadn't eaten or drank anything in 2 days. 
I was worried about her being dehydrated.
Luckily, I am still nursing her and the doctor said that because of that, she didn't have any signs of dehydration!
It sure dehydrated me though! I felt like she was a newborn again and I needed a TON of water to keep me hydrated! 
It also brought back my hunger! 
It's been a long while since she has marathon nursed!
I am thankful she has nursed this long, but I think it will be a bit of a relief when she decides to wean!
I'm ready! She's just not yet! 

I also wasn't able to really leave the house because of this.
Stuck in the house for 5 days with a sick child has been mentally exhausting!

The hubby is off work tomorrow and since Sophie is FINALLY feeling better, I plan on running at least a few miles! Since it's been over a week, I'm hoping my body doesn't start to hate me! :/

The Cowtown half is NEXT WEEKEND!
I don't feel prepared at all! I made it up to 10 miles for training, but then decided to slack off and then Sophie got sick and well...
I just have not been putting my miles in.
I hope I don't completely embarrass myself at the race... 

After Cowtown, I have to keep my training up for the Dallas Rock N Roll Half on March 24th! 

Then I need some ideas (And a free place to stay) for an awesome race to do for my 30th birthday in April! Any suggestions?!? Any race that you highly recommend? Let me know!! :)

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

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
