Running and eating (but not at the same time)- These are my two biggest struggles lately. I have taken an extended vacation from running. Not for any particular reason- just laziness, I guess. AND it is getting really cold outside and I HATE the cold weather. But that really is just an excuse to be lazy. Now about eating right....grr...This is the major one. Im sorry but I love food! I know im not the only one out there who does. Maybe just one of the few who can admit it. Word!? So, because of the pressure from my brother to run and a certain Caribbean cruise that I (and my beloved) am taking first of February, I am going to get busy. I have to stop being lazy and get moving! I am going to start JOGGING asap and stop eating like crap. I dropped 15lbs last year for my wedding. Surely, I could do that again in two months for our cruise. After all, I certainly dont want anyone mistaking me for a whale. :(
Anyway, congrats to Jonathan for his record time at the 2008 Turkey Trot here in Dallas. Wish I could have been there Bro! Watch out, White Rock is right around the corner!
Also, today is my 1 year wedding anniversary!!! Hard to believe it has been a year. I look forard to many more. I love you so much Drew! You truly are my better half (okay, more like 75%)!

My first 10k was this past weekend...I had alot of fun. It was at the beautiful White Rock Lake here in Dallas. I POWERwalked it with my friend Lisa and her kids. But my stupid shoes arent used to me walking/running longer than 3-4 miles. So, around mile 5, I started getting blisters and had to take one of them off and walk the rest of it with one shoe on and one off. That sucked.....My brother (The Super Runner) ran it with my Uncle Bryan. Jonathan beat his last 10k time by 2 minutes. Snaps for Jonathan!!!
Afterwards, we went to eat at this German restaurant in Highland Park. If you arent to fond of German food like me, you would appreciate it- as I did not. But the guys loved it.
Anyway, we had a good time. I hope that it will motivate me to train better and more often. The energy at these runs is amazing and crossing the finish line feels great....See pics here.....http://www.yoursportingimage.com/Image.asp?catalogID=2243345 , http://www.yoursportingimage.com/Image.asp?catalogID=2245871 , http://www.yoursportingimage.com/Image.asp?catalogID=2244198. Sorry, couldnt figure out how to copy pic. Not my forte!

Awkward Social Things
by Dee Ann
*people who keep looking at you when you're clearly done talking to them
*someone who has called you the wrong name so many times, you don't want to correct them
*seeing your boss at the neighborhood pool
*seeing old friends who got really fat
*trying to look cool in a college town vintage record store
*realizing you've mispronounced a word your entire life
More funny stuff... I voted for the brain fart card- priceless! http://www.hallmarkcontests.com/funnyvote/

Also, lately, I have been really craving avocados. I dont know why...I literally had a dream the other night that I was eating one...and the other day, Drew and I were out of town and looking for somoewhere to eat and I begged him to choose Mexican food so I could have some guacamole :) Avocados have gotten a bad rep for being fattening but it is good fat and they have lots of good nutrients as well! http://www.avocado.org/healthy_living/nutrition.php I went to the grocery store last night and bought a few. I plan on enjoying them tonight :)
