Sleep Over!

Abby's "sister" Kinley slept over last night. (Abby lived with Kinley before she lived with us.)
Poor Brad thought I went out and adopted another dog when I walked in the door. He just looked at me and told me hated me. It was a long night! After a couple Alpha Dog brawls they decided they wanted to be friends again. Few.

Fast forward to 3 AM Kinley Barking, Abby Crying.
Brad called me the dog whisperer this morning because he found me on the couch with Kinley spooning my legs Abby on my head. I am sure it was a sight to see.

Moira Elizabeth at 2 months!

Chicago should be called the "Windy City"...

"Wait a minute... I think they do call it that." - Jenna Crandall

I had such a fun time in Chicago visiting Jenna, Dennis and Davis. Jenna and I spent one night in Chicago at the famous Drake Hotel. We got had a huge suite all to ourselves! We had the most amazing Steak dinner with yummy baked Mac n' Cheese (see above), we shopped, we had the yummiest Salted, Carmel Hot Chocolates from Starbucks, we played with Davis, we ate a Chicago deep dish pizza, I had a couple Chicago Style hot dogs and we laughed... a lot! Thanks Jenna for making it happen. Miss you!

Half of a Half

Crashing the Nike Womens Half was so much fun! Good Luck Julia and Maren in NYC!

Thunder Road...

This weekend I ran the San Jose ½ Marathon. I can not describe the new found respect I have for those of you who run Full marathons. I really don’t think I would have been able to run another 13.1 Miles.

Here is quick summary of my run. 1-5 were cake. At 6 I was starving! I had stashed some lifesavers in my pocket just in case and boy did they come in handy. For 7 &8 all I can say is Thank you Rhianna, Jay-Z, and Justin Timberlake.
Around 9 I made the mistake of taking some banana goo from the volunteers which instantly made me gag. At 10 I was certain I was going to throw up and began mentally trying to prepare myself for it. But, it never came and I got my 2nd wind around 10.5. I felt like I was floating. I loved it! As I came up on the last turn I moved to the left preparing to sprint when I saw Brad and Abby waiting for me to pass. At that exact moment "Thunder Road" by Bruce Springsteen came on my Ipod which was all I needed to finish strong. I turned on the heat and went as fast as I possibly could for the last stretch. What an amazing feeling to cross that finish line.

Thanks to Molly for being such a great training partner and thanks to Eve for convincing me to sign up.

Just chillin...
