Introducing my new best friend Dory!

In my family we rotate through each sibling.  This year my older brother had me.  He knows how I have been running.  He gave me a new garmin!  It does amazing things!  
I thought long and hard about her name.  I have settled on Dory from Finding Nemo.   "Just keep swimming (running)" seems like a good motto for me.  Dory was also always lost.  :)
Here is a glimpse at what Dory does for me....

I need to admit that I didnt run for almost 2 weeks.  I am back on track with it.  I have run 3 times this week so far.  Tonight I ran 5 miles.  The first mile was my fastest ever....11 min mile.  The 2nd mile.....well it sucked!  I had a terrible cramp in my abdomen.  Then miles 3-4 were pretty effortless.  About halfway through mile 5 I was ready to be done.

where in the world have I been?

I am here!  I promise!  Life is busy I guess is all I can say.  When I got home from Minnesota I had all of my life waiting for me!  One of the things I did was go on a girls trip to Santa Cruz.  I was not there as much as I had hoped but when I was there....it was great.  We had the most spectacular view of the ocean.
 Here we are at family dinner one night.  Amelia is missing from the picture.
I had to go home early because my little Sophie dog was attacked by bigger dog and her leg got broken. Poor thing is already afraid of other dogs and this did not help.  She is doing ok now but was pretty pathetic for a few days.
I have been fluctuating a little bit with my weight loss but mostly staying the same.  This weekend I am going to Vegas and then I am getting serious about losing.  :)

Hope you are having a great winter!
