Just Getting STARTED

I recently went OFF GRIDE so that I could completely dive into some true family time over the holidays….. but now I am back!

The New Year has started off like a rocket.  Some updates and pictures…..

·         Received this rocking new running hat and immediately headed out with hubby to knock out an 11 mile run.  I felt so much faster. :)))   Thanks VINCE!!  Last year I had the honor of being coached by him and he continues to mentor me along the way through all of this Iron madness. 
·         Our oldest son was home for Christmas this year.  He is currently serving in the Marine Corp and we are just so proud of the man he has become.  I went into full on cooking and baking mode while he was home.  Both of our boys/men ate…and ate…and ate.  I loved every minute of it.
·         I had a brief spell where I thought I would go “DRY” but my new Team Rev3 helped me realize what a hasty decision that I was making so I decided to embrace it again with my first 32oz beer.  (about an hour later I was sleeping like a baby).

Lots more updates to come..... I am just getting started!! :)

First up is a "fun" run Half Marathon with some great friends in the morning.  Just something to get us all through the winter.YES...I will be wearing my new hat!

Nice mix of fit and family! I've managed to get my wife started running for the new year, hoping she sticks with it.

So nice that you had quality family time. God Bless your son for his commitment to keep the world a safer place.

I must say, I very proud of you lifting that "mother of a mug" with one hand...YOU ARE IRON!

Nice start to the year!!!

haha love it. Has to be an adjustment to actually recognize them as men... as you are the momma hen and they are your boys!

Great job keeping things going and getting in the mileage!

We are semi dry as well over here. Usually behave during plowing season because of late nights and weather conditions (sometimes I am actually intelligent and responsible ;) ). But mid summer is when I get back at it full gear!

What a beautiful family! You have every right to be proud of them.

I like the "beer smile"
