I'm still here!

Sheesh - I haven't blogged in over 3 weeks! Where in the world has the time gone?!?!  This school year is FLYING by - I can't believe we are already at the week before Christmas break!!

Things have been busy around here, so here's a small update.

The week of Thanksgiving I got the dreaded stomach bug. Tuesday and half of Wednesday I was pretty much down for the count - I missed part of parent/teacher conference day and a teacher inservice. Luckily, it was a 24-hour bug and by Wednesday evening I was feeling a lot better and drinking lots of fluids to get myself ready for the Turkey Trot in the morning!

I ran 2 Turkey Trots this year.  On Thanksgiving, I ran my city's local event - with about 4,500 people, it is pretty crowded and makes for a fun time!  On Black Friday, I ran the US Road Runners Turkey Trot.  With the stomach bug and the crowds, I decided I'd run Thursday for fun and Friday for time. But - I ended up PRing Thursday (27:28!)!

The Friday course was a ridiculous mixture of hills and grass - so it was not easy - but I was still really pleased with my time!!
 90% of the reason I ran this 2nd Turkey Trot was for the medal - haha!!

The Sunday after Thanksgiving I went on a date with someone I met online. Yep - good old online dating is a part of my life again, sigh.  He was a nice guy and we had a decent date, but I didn't think there was a "love connection".  He kept reminding me of someone, and when I realized who it was, I was cracking up.  He was a thinner version of....
...Cam from Modern Family.  Needless to say, there was no second date happening.

But - as they say, there are other fish in the sea!

Other than that, we've had some serious snow here in southern PA! We didn't have school Monday and Tuesday, then started Wednesday with a 2 hour delay! Tuesday's snow was the GOOD stuff - it was like being in a snow globe.  I even went for a half hour run in the snow - which I think is like the adult version of playing in the snow.  At least, it was for me!
