One of the reasons I have been such an infrequent visitor of cyberspace and subsequently neglected our blog for months now is that we have been training to run a half marathon. The race is in three weeks. Being the non-runner that I am, the training has taken quite a toll on my body and required me to get more rest than I had previously been in the habit of getting. (Like now I need 6 hours of sleep a night instead of 4) No longer can I loose myself in blog world until 2 am. I happily welcome the change however. Running has always been so intimidating to me. I have never EVER done it on any sort of regular basis so this race is a huge accomplishment for me to say the least. I have also really loved the way that running seems to have slowed me down. Longer runs provide an excellent time of stillness and rejuvenation of mind (despite the strain on the body) and I can feel the effects of it in my daily life as well. Ill be sure to post some pics after the race as I will be extremely proud and want to share. Wish me (us, Brian's running too) luck!
So now that its almost March I thought I would change the Christmas header on our blog and post some pics of the holidays. Better late than never. Sadly, I dont have any other newer pics to post anyway. We've been a little busy around here.
