2 week hiatus

I can't believe I haven't posted in 2 weeks. I am sorry for the unintended break, I didn't think things were that crazy here, but I guess they were.  I had 1 final due last week and one due this week, so a lot of time has been spent writing them.  I am still full steam ahead on training for my first half marathon, which I can't believe is less than 3 weeks away.  I am getting excited and nervous all at the same time, I know that I am, err, will be ready, I am just trying to embrace every single moment.  Which, brings me to the last 2 days where I haven't been able to do anything.  I went to the doctors yesterday and got a cortisone shot in my knee to help with the inflammation of the IT band. I have been doing the stretches that I was given, and resting it. I guess maybe I should take some of the aleve, (although not sure how I feel about taking it when I am not hurting). One of my awesome running friends Jennie is lending me a foam roller to try out. A lot of my running friends recommend a foam roller, so I thought I would give it a shot. It can't hurt right. I am also going to start adding ab work to my regime, it can't hurt. Maybe I will start to feel better about how far I've come if I start seeing changes again. Enough about me...I know that you want to see pictures of my sweet baby girl. Here are some pictures that my cousin took on Easter, please enjoy.

I also hope that my sister doesn't mind, but here are some pictures of my niece from Easter as well..

Bubbles were a big hit! It was a great day, with an amazing family. I hope that I will be able to keep up on blogging now that there will be a break in school. I will start posting information about the half marathon soon. I am getting excited, really I am. I am just also very nervous about the race itself and about how my IT band will hold up. If you can spare it, say a prayer for my IT band (oh, and that I get the new job that I applied for, that is another blog post in itself). HAPPY WEDNESDAY!
