And probably plus some…I haven’t been ignoring yall! Just enjoying my vacation :):)
1. Since my last post I had a very Merry (early) Christmas with P, drove to Alabama, threw a baby shower, had a family get-together, and now I am relaxing. It has been quite nice. I literally didn’t get out of my pajamas at all one day. I am already on book 3 of the Hunger Games series and I can’t put it down.

|2. I recieved a few cards before I left from the Holiday Card Exchange and I also received my blogger secret santa gift. Hannah hooked me up!!
She baked cookies (can’t remember what kind but they were gone in about a day), included 2 sweaty bands, chocolate peppermint bark bar, and 2 GU’s. She managed to find the Peanut Butter one!! SOOO excited to try it. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Hannah for such an awesome gift.
3. Even though I have been an eating machine over the past few weeks, I have maintained my training. This race-right-after-the-holidays thing is great. I don’t feel as guilty eating so much. The 22 miler went better than my 20 a few weeks ago. I ran at Municipal Park in Mobile twice this week and will do 15 tomorrow and 8 on Saturday.

A little fact: I attempted to run cross country my freshman year of high school. It ended up being more of a walking sport for me and I don’t even remember if I finished the season. I hated it. I do remember a cross country meet at this very park (way back in 1995). Funny, I can EASILY do the loop 3 times and couldn’t even get around it then. It used to be a nice park. I will admit I was slightly sketched out when I got there. It is a bit run down (not at all what it used to be) and the people that hang out there aren’t exactly people I would find myself associating with. Actually, my mom decided to tell me that many men now hang out there to “meet people” but quickly clarified that I was not there type. They are looking for other men. Umm…good to know I guess???? Creepy.
I’m not sure if I will get another post in before I get back to Atlanta on Monday. So if not, a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family!! I will be a busy bee next week updating the year in review and bling! :):)
