* Going to Arizona kind of put a wrench in my marathon training, but it was definitely worth it! I got to do the Muddy Buddy with my sister and go on some nice runs with my husband while the grandparents watched our boys. It was awesome! Ahhh...yay for grandparents! :)

* One day during our trip, my husband, sister, and I all decided to do a trail run together. We found a trail system not too far from my parent's house, and headed out. It was beautiful outside and the trails were awesome. We did end up getting lost a couple of times and having to back track, but that was all part of the adventure! All in all, we ended up running 10 miles. I had an absolute blast, and was ready to buy a pair of trail running shoes that day! :)

See how the rubber came up on the bottom?? Good thing I brought my old, wear around the house, pair and not my good ones!
* A couple fellow bloggers, gave me the heads up about the Denver Marathon that I ran. Apparently, the course was too long!! I knew my Garmin couldn't have been that far off!! The article is HERE if any of you want to read about it. The good thing though is that they adjusted our times. So....drum roll....my new time is...3:59:29!! I ran a sub 4hr. marathon!! Woohoo!!
Too bad I had my medal engraved (they were offering it for free at my local running store):
Other Things Too:
* I was so excited to get two packages in the mail this week!
Awesome socks from Kovas at Midwest Multisport Life. I haven't had a chance to run in these yet, but I put them on and they are sooo comfortable! I'm excited to wear them on my next run! Thanks Kovas!
The other was some nutrition treats from Kevin at Half Tri-ing. Yay! Thanks Kevin!
* Christmas Cards
This year I've decided to use Shutterfly to make my cards. Their site is one of the most user friendly sites I've used for making cards, invitations, and photo books. In fact, when my oldest turned 3, I made him an ABC Photo Book that turned out amazing!
Isn't it awesome?? :)
I'm actually in the process of making my youngest son's ABC book right now.
Shutterfly has some of the best and cutest designs for photo cards that I've seen. And, I love how you can put multiple photos on the cards and personalize it for your family. Using Shutterfly is an easy, fun, and fast way to make your holiday cards this year. So, if you haven't started making your holiday cards yet, go check them out! I'm sure you will love what you see! :)
Honestly, I was going to use Shutterfly for my cards this year anyway, but they are running an awesome promotion for bloggers. Check it out HERE!
