Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays to everyone! Hope everyone enjoyed time with special people, and at least enjoyed the calories that none of us really should have consumed! My crazy food included a Paula Deen butter and cream cheese cake. I could feel my arteries hardening.

But my first Christmas without my dad turned out okay. My mom, brother + fam, sister + fam enjoyed our time together, and no one caused any big uproar -- always a good thing.

Spending time in NC with my mom has made me realize I really need to find a way to get back down here quicker. Since my Michigan job has now turned into part-time, I'll definitely include NC in my job search. It sure would be nice if I could spend a significant part of the year with her. We'll see.

My running has been lame. But I'll keep at it.

Amanda had a great idea -- if I'm not running the Disney Half in the future, I could volunteer! I think it would be super fun! I will run local 10Ks, by the way. I won't give up running, just will run shorter distances.

See some of you soon!

Holy Over-indulgence Batman! Yeah, I probably ate a bit too much and worked out a little too..well..little over the past two days. Was able to get a 10k on the mill today though, so there is a little less guilt. ;-)

Keep plugging away on the runs, Deb, you'll do just fine!

Glad to hear Christmas went well with the family. Best of luck with the job search as well! Oh, and Volunteering does sound cool. Will they give you a free day pass to the parks for that kind of volunteering? ;-)

Glad to hear your holiday went well!

So, in addition to volunteering during the half/full marathons you could still run the 5K's with us :)!

I can't wait to meet you soon!
