I promise I haven't disappeared.

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!

Oh gosh, sorry to hear about your grandpa!

I just posted the virtual trot results on my blog and didn't have yours yet but I'll add yours in. Good job on the PR.

I'm sorry for your loss but it's good you were able to say your goodbyes.

Congrats on the 5-mile PR!
