busy long weekend

I was non-stop this weekend from the second I walked out of my office on friday. I am still working on the baby room as now the crib that we saved from when the big boy was little has been recalled so now I have to replace with another crib that should arrive in the next couple of days. It is all coming together though and will be really nice when completed. I did go for an early run on saturday which was nice, still little chilly but felt great and comfortable at the turn around. Monday was a day off for me and the big guy and with an absolute perfect beautiful day, we were outside almost the whole day. We ended up going to the neighborhood park with several of the neighbors and then ventured back to our house. We all had a great time and look forward to many more times like that. Below is the group snacking during play. And the beautiful wife at 8 month with baby angel!

Love and hug your loved ones every chance you get. Live everyday to the fullest!

long weekend

Everyone needs a hat light clip so head over to Nikki blog and enter to win her giveaway. Hurry as today is the deadline.

I didn't get a run in last night as when I got home I started to not feel good. I will get a run in maybe tonight though as I feel better. The beautiful wife is having a baby shower tomorrow at the mother-in-law house so her best friend from LA is coming into town today and chillin with us. Should be lots of fun and hopefully will help the wife take it easy and focus some. We have so much stuff as it is at the house that I am sure we will have to go through it next week and make a big donation to the battered woman shelter, where we always do.

Love and hug your loved ones every chance you get. Live everyday to the fullest.

virtual 10k

I signed up for a virtual 10k on January 23 being put on by Casey at Running after Violet. I like the fact that anyone can do this run and they can do the run either outside or on a treadmill. I am looking into getting a treadmill for the house so I can still get runs in when the weather or family needs arise cancel a run. The beautiful wife doesn't want one even though it won't even be in the house. I only have 2 things left for the nursery and promise to post the pics soon.

I did get a great trail run in saturday with temps around 20 degrees but it was the frigid wind that was absolutely brutal. Part of the trail was soaked still and there was some frozen parts but I enjoyed every second of it. My legs were hurting after the run but felt great the next day.

Starting 2010

I did get a run in New Years day which wasn't bad at all. I felt good and the temp was not bad at all. Since then though has been a different story, freezing weather all across the US which has made my runs be put on hold. I will get one or two this weekend. I found some local runs that I am really interested in running this year, two half marathons that I am really wanting to do. I am trying to get a time schedule going for me at home so that I can get runs and workouts in, anything has got to be better than currently. Our weekends are filled with things to do all the way up to when the baby comes, including finishing her room. I hope to finish the room this weekend and will post pics when I can.

Love and hug your loved ones every chance you get. Live everyday to the fullest.
