|Pre-race. The turkey did not race, unfortunately.|
Nate finished in ~19:30.
|Greta's first snowman. She was actually pretty participatory, scooping up snow and packing it in.|
|Anna with little Anna :)|
|The Sunday after Thanksgiving Sharon, a former athlete (who will be rejoining the TNC team later in December), came up from AZ to visit!|
Well.. she was in Fargo for a wedding and decided to make a trip to Northfield before flying out of MSP. I was able to catch up with her, meet her fiance Chris, and talk running. I am thrilled to have her back on the team. In 2014 we were able to break a huge marathon plateau and take off 10 minutes off of her PR. She finished Grandma's marathon that Spring in 3:18. I couldn't have been more proud of her!
Now... I have my work cut out for me to get her back to that speed - and then faster! :)
|Who says you can't work hard on an elliptical?|
After all of those long sessions, doubles, hard workouts on the elliptical leading up to the Trials, I still have a love for that machine. Call me weird.
Working on the "Soft and Squishy" Part of getting back into shape:
|The house is coming along! Spray foam insullation went in this week & they will hang sheet rock next. I am crazy excited to watch it come together!|
|I better get moving on Anna's stocking if I want to have a prayer of getting it done before Christmas!|
I am really going to miss having a big Xstitching project when this is done. I *may* have started looking at kits online for another one... you know, just "in case of " kiddo #3... if we decided to try for #3 it would be multiple years from now... so it's a great time to look/start, since they can take multiple years for me to do!
