No one said HARD. They just said HILL. I did basically a tempo run with a friend from swimming on Sunday at 8:38ish- a pace faster than I've been running in a long time. Then I get whooped 2 days later. I show up to this hill after warming up indoors (KEY!) and got destroyed! We all have to start somewhere. I haven't worked HARD since spring '08 so here's to a hard working 2011 and getting my butt back in shape. I did about 2 miles warmup, 1.5 inside and then we ran up a hill 8 times and the downhill was recovery. Awesome workout! The total mileage was 6.5 miles and then I did another 1.5 at home to cooldown and stretch. It was a nice sized hill. I'll go back for sure! I am LOVING the Garmin to track my mileage and pace. Love it. Thank you Bill!

Had one of these yesterday and it was a great start to the day. Inspired by Angela's flu buster. Nick sucked his down. It was too thick so he used a straw.
- 1.5 large ripe banana, peeled, sliced, and frozen
- 3 Clementines, peeled and broken into segments
- 1 c milk (I used 1/2 c almond and 1/2 c skim milk)
- 1/4 tsp lemon extract (optional)
- handful of fresh kale leaves

It's down and out! Niceeee. Earliest I've done that but it seems like alot of you did the same thing! I have my space back from all of the new toys we have now.
and by planning Nick's birthday
I need projects so this is my project. Train theme. I ordered him the shirt most of you liked better with just the number on it. I think it's going to be cute. The invites are out (etsy!), and I have a bunch of ideas I need to get moving on. I can't believe he'll be two (Feb 6). It's insane.
