Wow, I have been MIA for months!
So we moved from Colorado to Northern California this summer and have been busy ever since. We are getting into the swing of things finally. We started in an apartment and then bought a house. Moving twice wasn't ideal, but its over, thank goodness. In fact, its been 3 months since we left Colorado and I just got my computer hooked up last week. I am enjoying the climate here and do not miss Colorado weather at all.
I had a not so great 10K 3 weeks ago where I got a huge blister and had to walk most of the last mile. Not fun. I did get to run part of the race with my family. The kids completed their first 5K, which was lots of fun. DH had an awesome PR in a half 10 days ago (his first sub 2 hour half!) and yes he used Galloway. His next goal is 1:50. This course was very hilly, he is switching to something flat to get to 1:50.
I am training for the Tink and have many races I would love to do next year. We'll have to see how the finances work out. Since we are in CA now, I am in for the DL half next year. It looks like we may do a 5K turkey trot as a family on Nov 17th. The kids already want a PR.
I mostly wanted to come on here and say I am still alive and running. I gained 10 pounds in this move and am working to kick them to the curb and continue to my goal.
Good luck to all our racers this weekend, especially Lisa, Rose, Dottie, Melinda, and Nicole. Have an awesome race! Be sure to have a celebration drink for me!
