Saturday - Little D's birthday party was fun and went really well. I think (hope!) that everyone had a good time. The party started at noon so it was hard to keep D distracted until then. He just couldn't wait to be at his party and with his friends. Presents were obviously on his mind as well! ;)
Here are the magnets that I designed and ordered from Button Arcade as little parting gifts. I tried coming up with something other than the usual goodie bag stuff that I really dislike. I think these turned out cute.
Sunday - Houston Marathon Day!
This morning I ran my first half-marathon and it was a blast. I didn't have a specific goal time-wise. I just wanted to finish and keep up with my training group. I did finish and I didn't lose my group until about mile 10 when I started faiding so I'm happy. The last time I ran before today was in November. I didn't run in December and January because too much was going on so the fact that I did what I did is pretty good in my book. My brother ran the full marathon and is trying to recruit me to do that with him next year. We shall see!
I was a dorky first-timer and carried a camera with me. Here's a shot as I approached downtown Houston again (mile 11) and one of my medal (I know horrible pic). I'm a happy camper! :)
And yes, I was supposed to go live with A Little Hut tomorrow and that will not be happening. I'm sticking to the the "not killing myself" resolution and will open when I'm good and ready. I'd rather do it right and not rush into anything I'm not 100% ready to show everyone.
