Hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving! We did, and did some major Thanksgivakkah celebrating as well. I just got finished with the Seattle half, it didn't go quite as planned. My last race I ran about 8:30 miles, so this time I was hoping for more like 8 minute miles. But with getting sick a bunch and life in general I ended up running a 1:58 over the half marathon which is more like a 9 minute mile. I have mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, I wish I ran a better race. I walked a lot and just felt crummy, but then again I know I am fit and life is good and I am happy I ran it! (some pics for you)
I have another race in January so I have time for a re-do! I also am trying to get my weight down, I put on about 5 pounds over the last 3 months, I am back down to 3 to loose but I am trying hard to stick to my plan over the holidays so I can run strong in January!
In other news my little girl is turning ONE! in just about 2 weeks. I really can't believe it, this year has just FLOWN by. It has been the best year of my life, hands down and I am looking forward to her party but also feeling a little sad- it is hard to see your baby grow so quickly! We just love her to bits!

Actually it isn't so bad. After 5 months of steady training with no injuries and wondering what all the fuss was about, I managed to give myself bursitis of the hip from my race. I tried to ignore it and even though I told myself I was going to take it super easy the week after the race of course I failed, and ended up making it worse.
So I "grounded" myself and said NO RUNNING for a week. This is KILLER for me. I run almost every day and I am so miserable. I tried hot yoga, I tried some strength cross training, but basically I am "angry eating" and getting pretty dang grumpy. I have tried foam rolling (I don't have one, but I used a friends) and ice packs, but I think it is just going to take time. UGH. The very worst. I can't WAIT to run!
In other news my baby is now 9 months old. This is an odd time for us Mums, 9 months in, and 9 months out (though the out months have gone by 100 times faster, how did that happen?)
It is also an amazing transition over here. She has started taking a few steps and is getting so independent! It is crazy, but also amazing to watch her personality come out more and more. She is so wild!
