13.1 Miles, Whoa!

Someone had the bright idea of signing up to do a half marathon…any guesses who that might be? 😳

Jen & I signed up for the El Cajon 1/2 marathon. And then the whole family got into it. Neal, Joe, AJ, Dani, Nicholas, Johm Henry & Grace did the 5k.

Joe found me a treadmill on Craigslist and I got to training.

It was all going pretty good…(hard, but good).  Red-faced sweaty me after 8 1/2 miles (below).

Until…I got the flu….followed by a sinus infection…followed by a foot injury.

I was TERRIFIED the night before. I really didn’t know if I could do it.

Saturday, March 12th was a beautiful day. Couldn’t have asked for better. Jen & I kicked things off with Dani cheering us on.

“We work out”

In Februaury, the boys ran in their school’s annual jog-a-thon. It was on a Friday (I work from home on Friday), so I got to go – and RUN with them! (Well, I tired the ‘run with them’)

Both boys like to SPRINT! I couldn’t jkeep up.

Fall (2015) Fun

Anthony, Family, Grace, Vacation 1 Comment

The Fall Season is here, although most of the time it doesn’t feel like ‘Fall’ in San Diego. I have gotten used to it over the years: 80-88 degrees during the day in November is just….’normal

Right after we got back from our weekend in Agua Caliente, we took the kids to Knott’s Berry Farm. Most of you already know about AJ & the roller coaster video (also posted below for your continued enjoyment). That one, 53 second video, made the entire (long) day worth it. There were WAY too many people in the park and the boys didn’t get to do much. But the one roller coaster they did – was Epic 😀

Here are a few pictures from that day.
