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!! :)

WooHoo! 
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…
