Playing Catch Up

Hello There Dear Sweets,

I apologize for my absence. Life has just been too exciting lately!!! My mother was in town this weekend so my posts did not happen as I had hoped...but let's jump right into it shall we?

2 weeks ago.....

We were in Orlando and feeling very optimistic about the Wine and Dine Half Marathon in Disney World. HM and I dressed up as Mickey and Minnie (original right?) and I was lucky enough to meet up with my friend Lori who happened to be in Florida the same weekend. Always the good sport, she finally agreed jumped at the chance to dress up as Tinker Bell.

Some of us were better sports than others

Perhaps we were a little too optimistic going into this race. After four days of walking the parks and eating most of our meals on the go, we were not in completely rested shape to start the 10pm race Saturday night. Because I was running a race about 5000 feet lower in elevation than my home, I felt great cardiovascularly. It was a mostly flat race, but I was able to power up every overpass and slight hill. My legs however were DYING......before the race started!!!! What stinks for me is that I ran on those tired throbbing legs, at a great pace I might add, for 10.5 miles......until my stomach. Whhhhyyyyyyyyy! I had to walk. Once I stopped it was nearly impossible to get started again. So did I do well? No. Did I finish? Yes. Was it a great weekend anyways? Hells yeah! HM had his own problems (knees) around the same time. He needed this photo break at mile 11:

Fast forward to tonight.....

Damn you Bonnie! How could you vote of my favorite contestant- Coach Mike!!! Devastating Biggest Loser. HM probably thought I was crying but I assure you, it is just a stupid cold.

Anna is such a lululemon fan. Maybe we could be friends. I even played Tennis in high school. Twin-zies!!!

Speaking of lululemon, here are my new acquisitions. I can't wait to sweat them in tomorrow!!!!

There is more...but I can't find the pants online. They are being hemmed and I can't wait to get them!!! Oh and Sweets...Salt Lake City is getting our first FULL lululemon store by the end of the year. How did they know my birthday is in December?!?!?!

Anybody get any new workout clothes lately? Don't you love that?
