Happy 2014

Oh I have been a bad blogger over the holidays.
My parents were here for 2 weeks and I chose to spend quality time with them.
Almost No blogging and No blog reading.

They left yesterday and it was very difficult once again to see them go.  My kids were completely heartbroken, it was so sad to see them say goodbye...and it is also very hard for me...they are not getting any younger..my dad is 80 yrs old and I worry about when will I see the next.

It is by far the hardest part of living so far away from my hometown.

We had a great time.  
We went to see Disney on Ice



I bought tickets to Cirque du Soleil for my mom for Christmas and it was awesome!!

We did our hostduty and drove to Hollywood



On the 1st we got up super early and drove to Pasadena for the Rose parade!
It was fantastic! A bucket list type event for sure!







We have played board games


Running...
Well I have done some but. It enough to be ready for my birthday half marathon in 8 days
Yikes....

Oh well...I was not about to leave my parents for 2 hours to go running...their last visit was 3 yrs ago.

My husband just announced to me that he might be working on my birthday race day so this kind of sucks... This means I would have to drop to the 5K and do it with my kids...we will see...

My oldest son is starting track team on Wednesday and guess who volunteered to help the teacher who is in charge of the team? This should be f u n ! :)
New shoes to run fast


I ended 2013 with 960 miles.
First time not reaching 1000 miles.
Injury sucks. I was out for about 4 mos this year.
Here to hoping 2014 will be better.
I am not doing the goal thing.
I only have 1 WISH: to be healthy.
In 8 days I will be 45 years old.  I don't feel that old.
I still hope that this will be the year of the marathon.

Happy healthy new year to all of you!
Cheers!

Glad you had a great visit with your parents. From all of the places that you visited I can tell that they enjoyed their visit. Don't drop to the 5K for your birthday half marathon. Let me help! My husband can watch them while we run and my son will be there too.

Happy New Year to you and your family! What a wonderful holiday you all had. So happy you got that time with your parents. :)

Hopefully you'll be able to do the bday race you have planned.

Very cool you're helping out with the track team. I'm helping with our school's Girls on Track program this year for the first time. Should be interesting...

You are NOT old, and yearly mileage means nothing so don't fret about that. I'm glad you had fun with your parents! We watched the Rose Parade on TV and it does look like it would be so much fun in person. Happy New Year!
