1/2 Marathon Running Momma...

Well I did it! Yes, after 5 months of dedicated training with my good friend Ana, we finished the San Antonio Rock n Roll 1/2 Marathon! Ana and I were so excited to start the race together and we are so proud of our accomplishment! Of course we were so excited that we forgot to take a pic of the two of us! Too funny! I am now going to try to increase my per mile time, hoping to get it to 10:30 or 11:00 per mile. I think some weight training may help! I finished the 13.1 miles in 2:36, just under a 12 min mile. I was shooting for 2:30 so not too bad for my first 1/2. I have until Dec 15th to decide if I want to Rock n Roll in Dallas at the end of March.... My girls and Shawn were at the finish line with about 30k of their friends....There were soooo many people there!! And in case you were wondering, nope I have no desire right now to ever run a full marathon! :)

Birthday and Halloween....Spoooooky!

So it seems I am always behind this year.....Oh well I suppose a short post is better then no post! Ha!

The girls celebrated their 6th birthday this October eating dinner at Grimaldi's Pizza, a great place to play with pizza dough before you eat, they love that! And us adults love eating there....So good! They were spoiled once again this year they had both Grandma and Nanna in town! So fun to have them both here!So Halloween was on a Sunday this year....made for some light fun! No adults partying and staying out until 3am like last year! The girls had fun trick or treating with me this was good fun, just love our 'hood, it is the perfect size to get through in a night.....Fun times....Shawn did an awesome job at carving the pumpkins the way the kids drew them....Kiara wanted the WSU Logo, must say dad did and awesome job on that.....Love Mikiah's pumpkin with all fun teeth....Too Cute! Some pics below....MJ getting all fairy-ed up! Kiara was Harry Potter (her favorite movies)! Lila was the purple My Little Pony....that girl just LOVES PURPLE!
