A Very Proud Aunt

My nieces Jill and Jodie ran the Rock and Roll San Antonio Marathon this past weekend.  You can read  Jodie's story here.  I was so proud Sunday as I got updates (can you believe Jodie was Tweeting as she ran) and got a bit teary eyed (very hormonal emotional I know).  I have two brothers so don't exactly know what it would be like to run with a sister but know it was a very special day for them and they looked so cute in their race garb! 

Jill / Part 1 is here.  Jill not only ran a marathon but drove 8 hours to get to San Antonio and eight hours home and then went to work on Monday morning, what a woman!!!

I read a lot of blogs, people I don't know, now I can hear up close and personal stories from people I know...exciting.  I can't even imagine being with 30,000 people much less running a marathon with those 30,000 people.

I am a very proud Aunt...Jill and Jodie you are very special girls!

Tuesday Tells

It's harder to stick to a schedule when you don't have a race on the calendar.  After missing, skipping, ignoring Sundays workout and painting the laundry/craft room yesterday I got up this morning determined to get my workout out of the way first thing!  Workout completed.

I know this is not a decorating blog but since I have mentioned painting I want to show you the progress I have made re: laundry/craft room:
This is embarrassing / the catch all place

Walls painted

Next on the agenda the doors and cabinets and sorting/trashing all the stuff that was in the room.  My plan is antique white distressed.  I would love to take up the carpet and get tile installed but that's not going to happen...shopping today for blinds and rug.

I have been reading and watching news about the Chicago Marathon last weekend and thinking about Jo Jo and Jilligan racing in San Antonio this weekend.  Rock n Roll girls - good luck!

????Wondering if I will be ready for a 15k in February???? 
 Should I give that to myself for Valentines Day?
