13 Weeks and 3 Days

No, I'm not 13 weeks and 3 days pregnant.  Still adjusting to having 1 baby people!  13 weeks and 3 days until Dan and I participate in the White Rock Half Marathon on December 9.  We are very excited/nervous about this goal we have set out achieve.

Are we crazy? I can only speak for myself and some might say that I actually am a little crazy in everyday life but I do feel a little crazy for signing up for this!  Running has never been my thing.  I do enjoy a good workout but it has never been running.  Dan and I ran a bunch of 5k's when we first got married but that has been the extent of my running career until now.  I have many friends that are runners and they all say that it becomes addicting after you get into it.  Well...I'm not to that point yet, but I am almost 4 weeks into training and I feel really good.  Dan and I just juggle our schedules to trade off running and taking care of Little C.  I have tried running with her in our jogging stroller and holy cow that was hard.  Our house isn't really in a neighborhood but we do have a lot of areas to run.  Really hilly areas, but I'm sure that will help us in the long run (no pun intended).  :)  Luckily it's not high traffic so we feel safe running here and we enjoy the scenery as we run.  Running a half marathon has been a goal of mine forever and now is a better time than any to do this.  I know that December will be here before we know it!  Hopefully I will be able to cross something off of my bucket list!  (A half marathon is actually the only thing on it...I should really be more creative and add to it!)



  1. Dude. When I saw the title on FB, I was like, holy cow, they aren't messing around!

    Running? Totally not what I was expecting. Good luck and congrats on the training.

  2. That is awesome that y'all are working out at a team! I can imagine your neighbor is perfect for running.

    Yeah for crossing things off your bucket list. Not sure what got into me but when I started approaching 30 I thought it was high time to do the same. So far I've cross a few things off but I'm just getting started!
