It is kind of fun to be 38 years old and to be in the best shape of my life. My plan for this year is to continue to try and be the best "me" I can be…mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and physically. It is going to be a great year.
It has been a busy week as usual around here. Here are some of the things that have been going on…
- My poor Noah got SHINGLES. He is only six years old! He had chicken pox as an infant in Ethiopia before he was adopted. The poor kid had an awful (painful and itchy!) rash and was feeling pretty terrible for almost a week. He just finished the anti-viral medication today, his rash is all scabbed over, and he is acting like his normal self. Thank goodness!
|This was from before he got sick. He was stealing Shane's hat and thinking it was very funny. :)|

- I was profiled in a newspaper in New York! I will be running the Suffolk Marathon on Long Island in September and they are doing articles on some of the runners that will be racing. It is a first year race which I usually avoid, but it goes right through my parents' town and it fit into my schedule perfectly, so I had to sign up. :)
- It snowed more. Bleck. I had a block workout scheduled for today (workout in the morning, followed by a second workout later in the day) and the roads were just way too icy and snowy this morning to try and run fast. So, block was rescheduled for tomorrow. The sun came out today, it stopped snowing, and the roads are clear now, so I will be ready to roll in the morning. Big training day ahead!

- Two more days of school until Spring Break! We have a weekend in Utah planned and will do some little fun things here and there and enjoy the time to rest and relax a bit!!
