It's been a long time since I've posted! So what's my excuse, you are asking? I don't really have a good one, but I'll update you on what we've been doing the past two months.
In November I had a pretty hectic rotation, and my spare time was taken up with running and working. Brandon and I trained hard for our St. Jude race the whole month, and it payed off!
Brandon finished the half marathon in 1:54, which was six minutes faster than his goal of 2 hours!
Kelly and I finished in about 33 minutes, which was quite a bit faster than we had ever run before. It seemed so easy, too. (Except for the part when I almost blew chunks after smelling the Wonder Bread Bakery at mile 3. Luckily almost doesn't count.) We had heard that race day adrenaline helps your time, and that was definitely true for us!
It was a difficult Christmas after the losses our family has suffered this year, and those loved ones were definitely on our minds. But I also thought a lot about how fortunate we all are to have each other. We couldn't have made it through all the hard times without each other. Kelly and I have always known what an awesome family we have, but this year proved how lucky we are to have each other, and to have such amazing Brandons. Er, I mean husbands. I'm so thankful for my sister and my Brandon.
After Christmas, we started getting ready to move. 17 houses down the street, to a much bigger house. I'll update soon on all the decorating, organizing, and DIY projects I'm working on.
