listen to christmas music! and attempt to blog some more :)
today has been a lazy day for us. mostly because we were up this am doing the Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis here in Orlando. i have never run a 5k before. and technically i still haven't since i did a combo of running and walking. BUT I FINISHED in 45 min.
i am super proud of myself. I have some pretty worrying issues with my health and i've been trying to be healthy and get in shape and this is one thing that i've always wanted to do. i work out with the runhelper Ease into 5k app (previous Couch to 5k) but i usually slack off around week 3 or 4 because i get sick or i just don't run. BUT I FINISHED! :)
|this tree? all ice|
the race was early this morning. i was surprised we made it because we were out late with some of almost-hubs' work friends at ICE at Gaylord Palms. they do this massive ice sculpture display of Shrek the Halls and they have ice slides there too! almost-hubs is a native floridian, so it was good practice for him to prep for the Utah weather we'll be enjoying next week. i (being the one from utah) didn't think it was that cold, but i did wish i had a scarf or a thicker shirt. i've been sick, ya know! it was a lot of fun and i really want to make it a new winter tradition. especially since it's been 75+ degrees here lately. I'm ready for my WHITE CHRISTMAS!
|they supply you with parkas!|
ps: 6 sleeps to Utah. get excited!
