1/2 Marathon???

My sister has inspired me. She dose in a lot of aspects in life so this should be no surprise! She just did a 10 miler this weekend and completed her first 1/2 marathon almost a year ago. So hearing her talk about the actual event has inspired me to want to do a 1/2 marathon. I am not the greatest runner in the world so I am curious to see if I can do it. My other thinking behind this is that I might take this on as part of Team in Training. So I will be running and fulfilling the goal for me but at the same time raising money for a great cause, Leukemia and Lymphoma. Two people I work with are currently fighting lymphoma and my Uncle passed away many years ago with leukemia. So the cause is something that is in my own backyard...
The question? Can I do this?

I must be going blind... or crazy!

I was driving to work this morning (on the phone with my sister, don't worry, hands free of course) when I saw a horse behind a fence and I could have sworn it was a deer! Yeah a huge deer but that is what I saw at first.
Well this jogged my memory of an event that happened on Wed. I was out walking in the neighborhood with the two kiddos in the stroller when out of the corner of my eye I see something. I immediately went into mama bear mode thinking to myself, just throw your body on top on the stroller and cover the kids.
Yes my friends I thought I giant dog was chasing me, until I realized that it was a child running down the sidewalk that was most likely not any older than 7! Oh mama bear protect your children from that vicious 7 year old boy running down the street. Thankfully I did not throw myself on them, I am sure that my body weight would have caused some damage to the stroller and to my children!
So I am either going blind or crazy!

Fun Clothes

I had to share! This past week I found some fun workout clothes. I went to Walmart, they carry a line "Danskin Now", it is a division of Danskin. The clothes were super cute, great colors, they fit great, great quality, and best of all... I got two pair of yoga capri's and three tanks for about $35.00. not bad my friends, you should check it out if you are in the market for fun workout clothes and if you don't want to spend a lot!
