Training

So Tracy and I decided to try and run the Salt Lake City 5k this spring. I've been trying to run since the beginning of January and I'm really not doing too well. I was feeling really frustrated yesterday and went online and found a training program that I can do. It takes 9 weeks and it's supposed to get you running 3 miles in about 30 minutes. I am glad that I found something that will help me focus and reach my goal. It's very gradual and by the time I'm done with the 9 weeks, I'll still have 2 weeks before the marathon to keep working on it. So now my goal is back in sight and that makes me happy. My sister and sister-in-law ran it last year and I really wanted to do it this year with them and I'm glad I'll be able to, if I can keep this up. Hopefully I didn't just jinx myself or something and now I'll get sick and won't be able to do it! Goals are great and I really think having an attainable goal helps with so many things in life. It's a great feeling.

We got our state taxes back already. So many things to pay off, where to start?? Hehe. We are going to start with going to dinner tonight and not feeling guilty about it! We will probably just go to Denneys or something like that, but that's ok, I don't have to cook and we have the money to do it so I'm going to enjoy it. Then we will come home and figure out where to put the first chunk of taxes. Dentist? Lowes? Car repairs? Hmmm. It'll be fun seeing this money just disappear! Hopefully we can go on a vacation with it too. We usually go to St. George over Presidents Day so we'll have to see if we can work that in. My in-laws just had my father-in-laws dad move in with them. Did that make sense? His wife died this past year and he is getting older so they moved him down to warmer St. George to take care of him. The bummer thing about that is.... no more place to stay. We were going to get a hotel but it's the St. George Parade of Homes and all the hotels are booked. So we are thinking of going to Mesquite and doing the spa/golf thing there with Tracy's sister and her family. I don't know if we'll be able to work it out, but it would be fun. I guess we need to hurry and decide, since that's 2 weeks away!

Well Keighlee just woke up so I need to go get her. Poor girl is finally getting her last molar in and has a pretty nasty cold. I hate seeing my babies sick. It's so sad. And they get so clingy and that can get annoying pretty fast. Have a good day all!

Good luck with the marathon. That is awesome. I hate running but have since started because I can't get anyone to walk with me early in the morning.
