Here is a lil' update. First off: I must jump to the important thing. I am now running in the Ragnar Relay with my family! (24 of us!)
She convinced me that I could run a minimum of 12 miles (split into 3 legs over 2 days time) in this crazy relay in June. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat? Yes. Me. (Sarah! I know what you're thinking!: Heather won't stick to this...she'll be begging to be back in the DC co-op asap). Guess what???? I haven't had a caffeinated beverage in over a week! How do ya like them apples? I have only wanted water. Weird!
However, I am committed. I have been running right on the training schedule for the Wasatch Back, suggested on their site ragnarrelay.com . I am so excited about this, that I am jumping out of my skin! I can actually run for 35 minutes straight without vomiting! I have shocked myself. Today was the hardest run so far. I ran straight up a hill for about 15 minutes without stopping. Me. ME!!!!!!! Needless to say, I am very proud of myself! I cannot believe that I am a runner now! Wednesday is a 50 minute run...but Saturday's will be 80 minutes!!!!! Yikesters! I am loving me some "Gu" and my new running shoes! I listen to Coldplay's "Prospeckt's March" album every time I run. It's the perfect mix.
By the way...my disclaimer: I am vying for THE EASIEST SET OF RACE LEGS AS POSSIBLE: RUNNER 7.
So, there are other members of our family. oh!
Jonathan has been coerced (by me!) to also run in the race! He already is a pro. He ran 9 miles on Friday like it was a stroll on the beach. Nutty man! I am very excited to run with him. He's a machine!
Okay...on to the fun: PICTURES!
Nelly with her Snow White toy. She is really being cute lately. I think she's pulling out of the terrible 2 phase. We laugh at her every day. She is really into singing, and does it very well (phew)!
I tried to get a paparazzi shot, but too many peeps were in my way! Argh! And, I was a little nervous to talk to him...so I chickened out.
