Two blogs in one week

Well here we are, the day after Christmas. I didnt gorge myself too much yesterday as I only gained a pound from last Monday.

A good time was had by all. Santa brought Sarah the hamster she asked and a new Barbie. Tyler is too young yet to understand the hub-bub about Christmas. He walked right by the tree and all the presents yesterday to wake Debbie and I up so he could watch TV :)

Our first stop of two yesterday was to my mom and dad's. Originally we werent going to eat there. It was just going to be spend some time with my folks and my grandfather then head out to Chandler to my brother in law's mom's house for dinner. Well mom and dad had places set out for us at the dinner table so how could we tell them no. We ate, opened presents, visited for a while then headed to Chandler.

Once we arrived in Chandler we ate dinner there ( again ) and then opened up more presents. My mother in law's husband came in from Florida the night before. Its been about 6 months since we saw him last. He's not looking so well. Come to find out he has recently had a stroke. We headed home not too long after dessert as Debbie had to leave for work at 445 this morning.

Thats about it for now. Maybe a new blog after Brandens party on Saturday.

Its Christmas time

Lookie here, its December 23rd. I am now a year older as of the 18th and Christmas is just two days away. Its finally feeling like winter ( for us ) here in the valley. Looks like Christmas dinner will be at mom and dads this year. Unfortunately it might be the last one with my grandpa. Debbie's nephew Branden comes home from Germany on the 24th as does my MIL's husband ( he's coming in from Florida ) . Will be nice to see them both. Branden ( Deb's nephew ) will be getting deployed for the second time to Iraq sometime in January. Thats about all I have for now. Need to find time to get Debbie's Christmas presents out of my trunk and wrapped =)

Well I survived my surgery to remove the cyst from my jaw bone. Dr. said everything went well and that I will make a full recovery. Need to schedule a follow up with him next week.

In other news I havent run a step since the Philly HM. Part of my time off to heal up. Next week Ill head back to the Y and do some more Pilates and Ypga classes. All part of the big plan to get stornger, more flexilbe and to return to running next year a better runner.

Wow, its December

Well, its been a while since I typed a blog. Sometimes I wonder why in the hell I bother, seeing as how nobody knows I have a blog.

Phily came and went. What a blast. Met so many new people from my KR running group. The race itself went far better than I thought. Very rewarding experience for me, one that I would gladly do again.

Have surgery to remove a cyst from my lower left jaw bone next Wednesday. So not looking foward to that. We shall see how it goes

Wow leave it up to my wife to let me know the problem wasnt with Blogger but our home computer. Apparently we cant get to Blogger very easily from our home PC. Guess Ill just have to start updating the blog from here at work.

Training starts next week for the Philadelphia Half Marathon. Im really looking foward to this trip. Get to meet a whole bunch of my fellow 30 Somethings, do some sightseeing in Philly and visit with family too. Should be a great time.

Here we are again

Wow St Pattys Day was the last time I blogged. I was in the middle of training for the Flying Pig Half Marathon at the time. Training didnt go as well as I wouldve liked, but the race didnt turn out too bad. I PRed by 7 minutes on a really challenging course and met up with a really great bunch of people from my Cool Running board. Next group gathering will be in Philadelphia in November, I cant wait. Thats all for now, I am going to make a point of blogging at least once a week now.

Happy St. Patricks Day

Wow its been over 6 months since I blogged last. At that time I was just starting training for the Rock and Roll Half Marathon in San Jose, California. Training didnt go all that well as life got in the way and I didnt put in all the miles I needed to. The race went ok I ran a time of 2:35. Not bad for my first HM and not being trained very well.

I am now in the middle of training for the Flying Pig Half Marathon in Cincinati, OH. Should be a challenging race as there are some hills. Being here in Phoenix there isnt much of a chance to run hills. Plus about 15 of my fellow 30 Somethings from Cool Running will be there. Itll be a great opportunity to mmet a bunch of the folks that I talk to everyday on the web site.
