New Training!

The hubs and I are signed up for the Heavenly Half on 3/1/15 so we are starting official training this week. 1K repeats today @ 8 min/mi. Here's what our November training looks like 
It was 45 degrees, my fav running weather! We are only running 3 days/week outside of boot camp. I've never done that before but I felt great this morning, so hopefully it works well.

I am prepping for my sister's 50th birthday in a couple of weeks. I put together a video montage of her life yesterday. After 3 hrs of staring at a computer, I treated myself to frozen yogurt with chocolate syrup and whipped topping.
And of course Dori insisted on keeping me warm

French Toast

Today was a kick boxing day. Whew! People were not moving fast enough so we had a few extra laps added on.

I came home and made chocolate swirl French toast for the littles.
And I ate the heel of the bread, my fav! 

Since we didn't have school or work today, we got a little crazy last night.
We watched Maleficent and it was SOO good!

Red lip: yay or nay?
It's a little out of my box, LOL.

Thank you all who have served our country!

Running Weekend Minus the Run

It was my BFF's bday this weekend and she is coming back strong from a tendon injury and wanted to run a 10k in Catalina. I've somewhat sworn off running after all the races I did this year and after looking at the elevation map, I decided it was better for me to go and cheer her on!
This course was a beast! And she went into full beast mode with a 49 min 10k. I don't know that I could do that on a flat course let alone on these mountains. Her hubby made a course record at 36:32!! Crazy! 
Gorgeous hiking and landscapes! It was really fun to cheer them on and we got a decent run in trying to meet them several times and then we finished off with a 7 mile hike, fun times!

Runday Sunday

I haven't run any mileage since a week ago last Thursday with my x-country team. I am doing 5 days a week at bootcamp but I had a need for a Sunday morning run and it worked out perfect that we got an extra hour last night! It rained quite a bit here last night too, and there's nothing better than running after a storm. And I came home to this. 
And this 

The hubs and I dressed up as #Shamy

We are now on operation purge candy!
