   I went to work and got sent home 20 minutes later.. It was the first Sunday I’ve had in a while without work! I wasn't really planning on working out, but suddenly I got some motivation and went for a run.
      There is going to be a lot more running around here because I just signed up for my FIRST HALF MARATHON! 
I can’t begin to tell you how excited and terrified I am. The farthest I’ve ever run is 7 miles so I most definitely have some work to do!

   Paula and I met for a workout finally. We kept it pretty short and sweet- but it was nice to have my gym buddy back!
-Goblet Squats with reverse lunge- 15 each leg
-Slow Mountain Climbers- 30 reps
- Front Lunge with knee ups- 10 alternating sides
-Alternating one leg push-ups- 10 reps

   As the year comes to a close, I am more than excited to get cracking on the fun stuff coming in 2013. Half marathon training and race, Planning a two week long road trip along historic Rt. 66 to the Grand Canyon (June!) and with good fortune more teaching spots and travel- along with more consistent blogging!
   Happy New year friends!

What are you looking forward to in 2013?
