Sickness and half update

Last week was a bit miserable, bleh.  Being stuck to the couch with a fever, and coughing up a lung was pretty much our weekThankfully I think we'll be back to normal soon.  We're still spending most of our time coughing, and get tired very easily, but each morning we're a little stronger!

Half training has been...postponed until further notice.  Any running, actually - but we'll start back as soon as we're able!  However, even when we can get back to it, I have a feeling we may still put a hold on the training.  We'll be making a trip to Malawi in a few short months, and won't have time for it while we're there.  Life happens.  You have setbacks, there are some things you can't control - that's life.  But when those things do happen, you can look on the bright side and do all sorts of great things, even if it's not what you first had in mind!  

There will be lots of opportunities to do a half, and I look forward to them!!  Buuut,with all the above being said, we're going to do some other fun stuff with our running!  We're still going to try to slowly increase our weekly mileage, and also start including some fun speed workouts!  Overall = Exciting.

Hooray for Christmas! What?  Yes.  Yes it is nearing the end of March, but I can still celebrate because we got a box with the stuff we ordered from Amazon.com using our Christmas gift card!

 I've been loving reading this while we've been infirmed! [I ordered it back who knows when, so I didn't know about Kara Goucher's book, or I might've gotten that]

 I also got these beautiful headphones! My other nice ones had broke, so I'd been using a pair of "super-cheapy-fall-out-of- your-ear-every-two-seconds" kind.  So excited to test out these puppies.

If you get a chance, go check out Erin's blog! She has such a cute blog, but hardly any commenters {well, neither do I, heh heh :) } - so go show her some bloggin' love!
