I finished my half marathon! And got to run through the zoo while doing it!
On race day I just had a positive attitude. I really wasn't completely feeling it but, of course, I wanted to finish what I started. I'M GLAD I DID!
I quit training in March, I was so burnt out. Then a week before the race I had gotten sick. Two days prior I went to the doctor and got some good stuff just to help me through. At the starting line I was saying to myself to just do what I can and I was thinking I'll never do this again but, just be glad to check it off my bucket list. By the finish line, I was crying because I felt I had accomplished something so big (for me). Near the end I was thinking I could do one of these again! Too funny!
Now that a little time has passed, I'm not sure I'll do another yet but, so happy at my achievement.
I am now focusing on other fitness activities like yoga & a powerflex class at my gym. I'm loving classes they keep me motivated.

We just took a quick trip to Kansas City to surprise my Mother-in-law and Father-in-law for their 65th wedding anniversary.
Happy Anniversary to Ken and Ora Mae!
We had to leave early for the flight and Jasmine fell asleep in the truck on the way to the airport.
They were surprised for sure. There was about 40 people at the party and they had no idea what they were walking into. They thought they were just going to dinner with my sister and brother-in-laws.

We had a very nice trip to Santa Fe and Albuquerque. We packed for two nights and ended up only spending one night. It was chalk full of sight-seeing and finding yummy food and most importantly spending time with my family.
We went to Pecos National Historical Park north of Santa Fe
Going down into the kiva
We found Route 66! Jasmine really wanted to see it. Of course, it's just a road but we drove down to see all of the old buildings that are still there.
This is an old bridge that is no longer in use but, it used to be part of Route 66.
We found good food. This was Harry's Road House.
I had a panini and Jasmine ordered a Caesar salad.
Then we went to the Fiesta Balloon Museum.
There was a wedding that was about to begin while we were at the museum.
I got my workout in while at the hotel. I have to say, I think this is the first time I have ever gotten a workout in on vacation.
We went to Old Town Albuquerque.
We went to a greasy spoon diner on Route 66.
And, on our way out of the state we had to stop by and stock up on some "two-buck-chuck"
In 2013 I have decided to start something new:
13 in 2013 is a running challenge I've joined. I need to run 13 races of any variety this year. They can be virtual runs as well.
I am so inspired by my friend Brandi and her blog Thin after twins. She is doing these and I am ready to get back into shape. Last year was quite the year so after reading Brandi's post I decided this is my year!
I also signed up for 5 by the 5th another challenge I found because of Brandi. I just need to run five races by June 2013.
And, to top it off I am going to run in the Colfax half marathon on May 19th! I just completed my second week of training for this 17-week program. It is official I am signed up and paid for to run this so, here we go! Oh, Um I get to run through the zoo! I'm so excited!
I have signed up for this Game Day 5K on Super Bowl Sunday as well. I need to get these runs in and need little ones along the way as I train for the half marathon. Wow! I can't believe I'm doing this, I might be crazy!
