Today is Ash Wednesday, and I have to say that for the first time in many years I was at Mass. Not just any Mass, but Mass at you have any idea how hard that is to get out of the house and to Church at 0830 with a 14 month old?! I have a lot of respect for my parents who did it with 3 children. Anyway, Makayla was good, she read her Bible, didn't fuss too much, but after the Gospel had had enough. Thankfully, Pop-Pop was there too and he kept her occupied. Because I can, here is a picture from yesterday, when she just HAD to wear my glasses...

January was a good month for me at the gym. I went 12 times, and even made their "awesome" wall. If I can keep it up for 10/12 months, I get a shirt at the end.

I won't get 12 times in this month, but...I am allowed to miss 2 months. So, my goal is to get in as many 12 months sessions as I can in the remaining 10 months ( I only need 8/month to get my insurance to pay for the membership). I know I can do that.
This is my 3rd week of my half marathon training. I have 9 weeks until I ever run a race at 13.1 miles. That distance seems so far away right now, but I know I can do it. If you follow me on twitter/facebook you get to see my workouts posted there. I don't do anything special, I just follow Hal Higdon's novice half marathon training and just tweek it when I have too. But, here is the biggest news. This October will be the First Ever Runner's World Half Marathon in Bethlehem and yours truly signed up to race in! I cannot believe that I did it, but I just signed up for my second half marathon! I wanted to be part of something special, and since this is the First ever and they are expecting 6000 runners, I knew I had to be a part of it. So stay tuned for the many adventures I have ahead of me with training for my first half, to then the adventures of training for my second, and all the stuff in between. Hang on, I am sure it is going to be a bumpy ride!
