Dec 16 th

Tonight we went for a long walk in our neighborhood after a failed attempt at a Christmas picture :(   I felt better after we just headed out the door and went outside. Our neighborhood is so festive. So many people went crazy with lights . I love it !! I hope your getting some outside time with many lights along your path.

Happy Monday. This is my favorite picture from this weekend. Thank God for I-phones how did we take pictures before them. I have been thinking about my word on my runs. If you don't know what I am taking about go here.  Ali Edwards is a Rock star in the world of memory keeping her take on writing down your own story and scrapbooking is simple but beautiful. For the last 4 years I have picked a word that I felt I wanted to live by and tried to incorporate into my life. I really believe that it has made my life juicer. I think I have my word for 2015. I am not 100 perfect so my last couple of runs I have just thought about the word and let it sit with me. If its the right one I will know very soon.
Holy Cow Mike got a Go Pro so if I can figure it out I will try to use it very soon. I have a 70 mile week ahead of me and I am eating well drinking lots of water so all that is left is me putting in 100 percent and by Sunday I am sure that will mean just showing up and putting one foot in front of the other. I have lots of thoughts of what races I want to do next year ?? So many fun events to work and train for. I honestly have to say I love running and how good it feels to be able to go outside and run around for hours at a time. Life is good.

ALTERING EXPECTATIONS - Kimberley Teshima & The Oregon Coast 50k | A Gin...

Dec 12th

Hello and can you believe its almost here again Christmas ! I have been on mommy duty. That includes a lot of driving , homework and hugs. Little man is my full time companion while his daddy works and this week we went to the park and walked a-lot. I can honestly say he is the most active baby I have had. Maybe he gets that from me.He is a great napper so I cannot complain.  I am also caught up on my December Daily and that's so exciting. Regarding Christmas presents I still have shopping to do.

I also got to spend time today with  my Bella . I knew she needed mommy time. Sometimes when your growing up there are mommy things that we just need. Today  she had a bad cold we watched a movie and held hands. That was what she needed from me to hold her hand. Easy and special. Time they say is the gift that means the most. I can see time going by. I can see that right before me they are growing up and I really need for my sake  to be with them and be a huge part of there life. I wish today could last forever. Have a wonderful night and now time to get all my stuff ready for my long runs.

Still the 9t

You have to love pictures with Santa ! They start like this 

but hopefully end up like this one. Even if it took hours to finally get them.

Dec 10th

Today is the middle of the week again. Its crazy how fast time flies. On this day I am taking this little guy to see Santa. 

His big brother and sister are in school and they don not want to see Santa so its just us. On Sunday my sister came to visit us. She stayed for about 4 hours. I love when she comes because she gets out of her environment and I think she likes my house. She always seems so happy here. 

Here we are Carmen and me. I really love her she is a special being with a very beautiful soul. Just kindness and love come from her. She was very sick.

I love this picture because even Jack knew she was special. He felt it so he tried to feed her with his bottle and then just laid on her lap. My little boy knew his aunt was extra special. Nice

Dec 9th

Our Sunday morning run started super early. We all met up at 6a.m. This is right where we started.  Looks a scary movie.  I was not as tired as I thought I would be.  First of all I was just so happy to be on time and I really did not get to lost. Those are all things that helped my morning get of to a good start. I want to say and I mean this it is feels so different to run as the day goes from dark to light. I almost feel like I am running on two different days. 

before you know it suddenly the day is welcoming you. I am really enjoying running on all new trails. The whole exploring and getting to run so many trails in San Diego is really awesome. 

There was four of us on Sunday and two people ran 25 miles and two people ran 20. I was in the 20 group. I need to have enough gas in my tank to go home and be a good mommy and not grumpy mom and so 20 miles was perfect. There was a-lot of hills and what we ended up running was the back portion of the 50 miler I will be running in a month. The weather here is amazing and while out on my run I got great news. My friend Jeff got his lottery ticket pulled for Western States. I an so happy for him and his family it is really a dream come true for him.  The reason this blog post took me two days was because I have been really tired..( I wonder why ) I think from what I read my body will get used to long back to back runs eventually. I will let you know when I feel that happening.. So are you getting excited about next year and picking out your races ? me too..
