And this makes 10

Sunday, I'm running my 10th half marathon. This year my uncle will be joining me on the 13 mile jog. I'm very excited for him to experience his first half marathon! Words can't describe the awesomeness of running the OK Memorial Marathon! The starting line, route, crowds, water stops, fellow runners, volunteers, and the homemade signs. Everything makes this race great!!!!
As normal, please send prayers and good thoughts to all us runners!!!

Mission New Friends

I'm on a new mission; a mission to make my new coworkers like me. It's not that my new coworkers currently don't like me. I'm just....not part of the group. I'm still the new kid.  I'm tired of feeling like an outsider. I want to be in on the inside jokes! 

Anyway, today was day #1 of getting my coworkers to like me. I decided food would be a good start. I mean, who doesn't like food?
My favorite morning friends helped me with the food.

I think my new coworkers were pleasantly surprised with the morning treat! I hope I scored some points with my new coworkers. 

Here's to new friends!!!!

Easter Picture Fail

Normally, The Sisters and I take good pictures. However, there are times we cannot take a good picture. 



Easter picture fail!

Life as a runner

Sometimes your knee hurts after running 7 miles and walking around a race track. 
Sometimes your knee hurts for multiple days, but after two days you decide to ignore the pain and run 2 miles. 

Sometimes ignoring the pain, and running two miles, leads to icing your knee at work with a bag of frozen edamame.

Here's to icing and Ibuprofen!!!

Feeling old

Everyone has that moment when you realize your old. It might be because you ach more, or your children do something to remind you you're not 20 anymore. Well, this morning I had my moment. 

In OKC, we have an oldies radio station.
They're known for playing music that was popular before I was born. 
See, all of these songs were hits before I was placed on this earth. If I'm in the mood for The Beach Boys or The Beatles I turn to 92.5. This is how it's always been!!! 

This morning, on the way to work, I heard Paula Abdul being played on this channel. None of Paula's songs are oldies. None!!! Her songs were popular when I was in elementary school. 

Since Paula was being played on the oldies channel, I could only assume it's because it's her birthday. Right? So, I waited until the end of the song to hear if anything was mentioned. Nothing. No comment was made!! They're just playing one of her hits. It's not her birthday!!!

Awww...when Paula Abdul was played on the oldies radio station is the moment I knew I was old.

Weekend Update

This past weekend was my birthday. It was a great weekend. Here are a couple pictures from my weekend. I'm warning you now, most of the pictures are of food. 

Canada Travis cooked me multiple meals and bought me a cookie cake. 



My family went beyond themselves for a fantastic feast! 
Everything I had over the weekend was delicious which is why I had to do this Saturday morning...
It was a good birthday weekend. I'm lucky to have so many people who like to help me celebrate. Including these crazy cats...

My aunt and uncle sent me a birthday selfie. I thought it was pretty great!

Here's to another year of life!!!
