THREE POINT ONE

I just returned from the gym, thankfully an afternoon meeting was cancelled, and I ran 3.1 miles in 30:44. Go me!!! It was definitely the best I have ever felt while running. I'm really starting to see why people do this regularly. I made my February goal of running 3 miles with 3 days to spare. Maybe for March I'll target four miles, we'll see. The gym every day and calorie tracking goals were not met, but I've already addressed a bit of that. So today I got to snuggle with Cutie at 4:30am and still got in a good workout- the best of both worlds.

On a sad note, there will be a memorial service tomorrow for a colleague of mine that lost his battle with cancer. It was incredibly fast, at Thanksgiving time he was still going to the gym five mornings a week with no idea that there was cancer in his brain and bones. Less than three months later his family is mourning his passing. He had two sons, I believe young teens, and he was one of the nicest people that you could ever hope to meet. I didn't know him well, but he will be missed around here.

My next post will include pictures, you haven't seen enough of my children recently.

Enjoy your time with Cutie - life is too short (as you have been reminded of alot recently), to miss out on the good things. I am looking forward to hopping back into family life too after this weekend. Thanks for the well wishes. Take care!

I do look forward to more pictures. Your kids are absolutely adorable.

You have had your share of heartache over the last couple of weeks. I hope everything turns itself around right here and now for you.

Great job on the running! Like ironjenny said, you will easily do four miles over the next month!
