new beginnings'... :)

Most probably think I have abandoned my blog.. In a lot of ways I have... I havent wanted to resvisit it because I wasnt sure if I was ready to see and feel what it represented.
through 2010 my goal was to stay positive.. see my life for what it is.. blessed.. and push my self to do things that I never thought I could. Most of my posts reflected just that.
My life has gone through major upheaval since July and I couldnt figure out a way to write about it without it looking like I was airing dirty laundry... I also lost some focus and creativity.
I have seen divorce through the eyes of a bystander.. good friends whose marriages didnt work out for whatever reason...
I wasnt prepared for the feeling of complete and utter failure. I wasnt prepared for the people whom I was close to to choose sides. I wasnt prepared for the heart wrenching pain of seperating myself from an entire extended family.
I thought I could handle what my kids would do... They've been amazing.. I love them so much. I am blessed.
Some months have passed and my outlook has improved. the love in my heart is still there. My ex is still my best friend and we are still a team when it comes to the kids.
Some day I will find someone to share my life with again.. That is not my focus now...
2011 will represent  a stronger me. An Independant me. A happy me.

how my life looks now :)

what 2011 will bring
G will graduate!!! whoa...
L will drive!!!...
B will dominate the pool!!

I know it makes you feel good ;) Join in and play HERE
So my sweet, over enthusiastic hubby has us running a half marathon in July.
In all fairness, I signed us up.... but it was his idea!!!!!

Hal Higdons 12 week training program for half marathon...NOVICE
yes thats me!! NOVICE it even running when you can walk faster?
week one_ longest run : 4 miles    whew felt awesome, I did it!! 4 miles!!
week  two- longest run 4 miles... yippee...
now Im on week 3 just finished my 3rd run for the week
tonight? 3.5...... YOUCH!!!!! why am I so much more sore today?
welp.... i am looking forward to a refreshing 5 mile run on sunday.....
At what point am I going to start liking this BS
Right now, I just feel old....
one more confession... I am way too jealous that my husband can run faster than me.... I mean seriously, so what that he is in terrific shape (woot wooo),,, does he have to show me up like that ;)

If this has totallly inspired you to train for your own half marathon check out my training program
