Busy Weekend!

I had an action-packed weekend and I am EXHAUSTED!

On Friday night two of my fav girls, Paige and Vennessa, and I ran in the Santa Scurry 5K. It was perfect running weather and it was fun to see all the Christmas lights and decorations.

After the race we enjoyed a post-run pizza of course! Then my other fav girl, Kathleen, met us to go out for a ladies night out on the town. It turned into a very fun/interesting night!

On Saturday morning I met my sister at my parent's house because we have been planning on surprising my mom for her birthday. We took her and my dad for brunch and then my mom, sister and I went for lovely pedicures!

On Saturday night, Chris and I had a party to go to which turned out to be a lot of fun and I met some new, fun friends! All the guys talked about baseball all night and the ladies had great conversation and lots of wine to make it a great night!

On Sunday morning I had to wake up bright and early to pick up my sister and head to Dallas to cheer for my brother's girlfriend, Kristi, in her very first FULL MARATHON! She ran 26.2 miles...she's crazy!! This was also Kristi's first race with Team in Training and she fundraised $1500 to go towards the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Go Kristi! Go Team!

It was cold but I always enjoy watching people running endurance races, even if I don't know them. I always get so excited for them because it is something for them to be really proud of! I'm not going to lie...sometimes I even tear up because I'm so happy for them :)

Ashley, Ryan and I at the White Rock Marathon cheering on all the runners (Ryan is very confused about what college football team we cheer for)

The rest of the day was spent relaxing...I was so tired from all the action and the lack of sleep. Chris and I did manage to get in walks with ALL the dogs last night since I felt like I deprived them of my attention this weekend. 

Tomorrow morning I am starting my 12 week training for the Cowtown Half Marathon! Thanks for the inspiration Kristi!!!

Oh yeah... BOOMER!!!! I was so happy for OU to win the Big 12 game even though the first half was a little nerve wrecking. Now time for a Fiesta Bowl win! Go Sooners!!
