But I know it's been a while since I posted. And I'm way behind on my Google Reader. I will catch up in time.
Where have I been?
Well, my grandpa passed away last weekend. I made a post on Twitter and Facebook, and I thank you all for your kind words and prayers. It made last week pretty rough, but we got through it and managed to say our goodbyes.
We had a nice Thanksgiving. I started my day by running the Boulevard Bolt 5-mile race that I've been running the past few years on Thanksgiving. I felt pretty good and finished it in 41:44, a new PR by about 16 seconds. It's nothing to brag about, but I was still pleased.
I enjoyed a super lovely nap before having a HUGE meal with the family.
I did some Black Friday shopping with my mom and sister. We always go later in the day so that we don't get swamped with all of the early morning crazies. I managed to find a few more gifts, and I also bought a few things for myself. :)
I'm less than 2 weeks away from running the Huntsville marathon. My 20-miler went well, and I'm really enjoying being in taper mode again.
The holidays are always a little crazy, but I'll be back soon with better updates than these little tidbits. I've finally finishing decorating for Christmas, so I'll have to share some photos soon!
