4 Days of Core far!

Man o man...I'm getting a jump start on some of my "New Year's Resolutions"! I've done 4 days of Pilates workouts. They are hard...especially if you are trying to do them correctly (which I am). I can feel my core, which I sure hope means I'm getting stronger. It's sad what just a little bit of core work can reduce you to. It hurts to laugh, but I'll keep laughing anyways!!*smiles* My hope is that if I keep working on my core, it will help me with the rest of training and my life in general! Here's hoping! My Goal is to master the teaser! Maybe by the end of the year I will be able to do the whole series of teasers without any help? Let's see....I'll keep you posted!

I have 3 Pilates DVD's to work from, and they are all suspect they should be. Pilates doesn't take a lot of time, but it does seem to work! WOO HOO!!

Supper Club...

Supper Club was Amazing...yet again!

Ohh what is supper club? It's just where a group of friends decided to get together and go out for an AWESOME meal once a month. It can be hard to find the right people to have supper club with, not everyone enjoys the same kind of food and wine. Not everyone wants to pay for it (I know I don't want to pay for it either, but it is so worth it). Not everyone has the time to hang out in an adult setting and enjoy friend's company. It's okay...not everyone is ready for this kind of supper club....but Jason and I and our friends....we are. Being childless and able to afford a really good meal every now and then makes our supper club AWESOME!

Last night we went to Flemming's Steakhouse at Crabtree Valley Mall. I know eating at the Mall, but Flemming's is really one of our favorite places. If you don't like to eat meat, in particular a perfect cut of fillet minion that melts in your mouth, no need visit Flemming's. Our choice to go to Flemming's was prompted by us having a ton of free corkage cards so we could bring our own fabulous wine to enjoy our meal with. This group of friends does not disappoint and we opened and drank 5 bottles of fantastic wine during our evening at Flemming's. Thanks to free corkage that saved us $100 (plus if we bought the wine there it would of been crazy is always more expensive in the restaurant).

Sorry for the not so great pics...I left my camera at home and my iPhone is the older (3GS), and doesn't have any flash. The restaurant was dark.

Thank-you to Kim, Frank, Amber, Jen and Dathan for another Fab night out with Supper Club!

Just a random Thursday...

This morning I got up and did my 3rd day of Pilates Mat workout. Yes I really can feel my core now, no please don't tell a funny joke it hurts to laugh!

Jason and I had already decided to do a run today. It was supposed to warm up to about 38 degrees by 10 am and we thought that it would be the perfect time to be out running. It was also supposed to be sunny. Well it wasn't 38 degrees more like 33 and it wasn't sunny, it was overcast. We had a pretty good run though. It was hard converting the air from the cold outside into our warm lungs. I had a weird ankle issue (just weird pain) but it resolved itself during the run. It was probably from sliding down the snow/ice on the dog walk yesterday (ie: the dogs pulled me down to the ground so they could go say hi to a "new friend"). I did end up walking a little more towards the end to get ready for the last BIG hill. HA! Glad to be warm and cozy in the house now, just waiting for the shower!

Run Time: 42:11
Distance: 3.81 miles
Average: 11:04 /mile
Fastest Pace: 8:43 /mile
Climb: 256 feet
Calories: 499

Side Note: Doing this run means that when we go to Flemming's tonight, I get to enjoy the food and wine brought to the table! This is one HAPPY HAPPY Girl! It's Supper Club tonight!

Blind Tasting..

While we were in Virginia we decided on a whim to do a Blind Tasting of some of the wines we had in the house. We had a couple of people who my Mother in Law thought knew a lot about wine and would be able to "tell the difference". Anyone who really enjoys wine knows that everyone's palate is different and what I love you may hate and vis versa. So we tasted a California Box Wine (Black Box Cab) - don't knock it, it's a great everyday wine that keeps well because of it's packaging. I wouldn't venture beyond the Cab though...for my tastes. We had to put some of the box wine into an actual bottle to "fool" the folks. A Chilean Cab Blend (that cost us around $10), and two Virginia wines that were Merlot blends (Barboursville- Octagon ~$60, and Veritas Claret ~$40). The person everyone though knew the least about wines got a perfect score, the two guys who my MIL thought would know the most got 0 correct and 1 correct, I only got 1 correct, and both of my in-laws got 2 correct. Pretty amazing right? The favorite wine of the group? The Virginia Wine - Veritas, was the favorite, then the boxed wine and the Chilean wine were tied for second and the most expensive wine Barboursville came in last. What did I drink at dinner? The Octagon (Barboursville), heck the rest of the wines were going fast, I might as well enjoy the $60 bottle while I can!!*winks*

A NOTE: Everyone said that they actually liked all the wines and would drink any one of them.

I labeled the bottles WINE instead of ABCD or 1234, I thought it was cute.

Resolutions and Goals...

Got any?

I've got a few goals this year...a big one is running my 26.2! Once I conquer that beast I will never HAVE to do it again. Of course I have to do the same race I didn't quite finish, and of course that has to be in San Francisco....OF COURSE. Another HUGE goal I have is to raise $15,000 for cancer research! Yeah..I know it's a lot of money, but it a lot of much needed money. Those are a couple of my "big everyone can see it all happen" goals.

(Side note- if you wanna help me with my goal of raising money for cancer click on the links on the right hand side of my page under Fighting Cancer...Wanna Help?. The links go to my fundraising pages for the American Cancer Society and for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society)

Personal goals are more of the needing to eat better and try to stay a little more dedicated to my training schedules. Adding in core training and strength training so I don't hurt myself with all the endurance training that I do. Work on not over extending my "free" time, but still taking time to do all the things I love. Also trying to put the positive into as much as I can, seeing the good in people, and enjoying what I find.

Rough Night...working into a better day.

Ever wonder what people really think about you?? Don't! Live in your own little world and let the rest of the world just go by. That's my advice. No...not really. It's good to find out things that you need to work on. It's hard to work on things you don't know about. I'm having that difficulty right now. Not sure how to make a few situations in my life better. Don't know how to work on them, don't know what to do. For now I'm just leaving them alone.

I found out last night some things that hurt my feelings. We could say that I'm being overly sensitive right now, it being the holidays and having some strife in my life, and I guess we will. It's hard to have your feelings hurt by the ones you have come to depend on, it hurts. So after almost getting the heck out of dodge last night....I'm here to say that I'm working on making today a better day.

I woke up to another COLD morning, took Scout out for his walk temp was 24 degrees that felt like 10 degrees (according to the weather channel app on my iPhone). I got to see the pretty sunrise with gorgeous colors across the morning sky. I got my cheeks blasted with crazy wind and I made it back to the house to get Scout his breakfast.

I spent a lot of time downstairs looking at stuff on the computer this morning, staying out of the way and away from everyone upstairs. I'm embarrassed about last night (I was packing my bags up to leave), but I still think I was right, so I'm still angry and trying not to be. The house is empty now except for me and Scout (everyone else running around doing errands and whatnot) and I got a Pilate's session in...THANK YOU DVDs! I feel a little bit better, but not super great (as you can probably tell by this post).

My goal is to try and make a positive out of the situation. Try not to dwell on the negative and see what the outcome is. Apologises were made last night, but my feelings are still very hurt. Working on it...I'm working on it.

Scout Loves the Snow!!

We came to Virginia for Christmas this year and the snow didn't disappoint....another White Christmas for me! *smiles* Although we didn't get as much snow as those back home (in Raleigh, NC...4-8"), Scout loves to get out and run around in the snow. As my previous post shows, Scout and I went for an actual run in the snow on Christmas morning, but since then he's been out playing in the snow a bunch of times. I got some video of him sniffing around the snow, but as soon as I but the phone (video in the phone) down he would run around like a mad man. I love seeing him act like a puppy again, it puts a smile on my face! Today the snow has stopped, but the wind has picked up. I was planning on a run this morning, but after the dog-walk, I think we can hold of until tomorrow - gusts of 22+mph winds makes it not fun to run.

Christmas Morning Run in the Snow!

What a wonderful morning. I woke up to it snowing here in Virginia. Yet again I get to have a "white" Christmas. The snow was falling in small flakes, but it was starting to stick just a little. I took Scout out for his morning walk and we enjoyed getting snowed on. The flakes got a little bigger, but it wasn't coming down to hard. Scout did all his Morning Business and we came back to the house.

I started thinking, it's not to bad out right now, and I don't know what it's going to turn into. Hmmm...if I go run right now I can get it out of the way and I'll be sure to get it in. I went into the bedroom and grabbed all my running stuff and got myself ready. I asked Jason if he wanted to come, but he was still cozy in bed. I took Scout with me, knowing that I wouldn't get 8 miles in with him, but I thought I could squeeze out at least 5 with him.

We took off and had a FABULOUS run! It was AWESOME running in the snow. I was probably trying extra hard to make sure I didn't slip on anything that my jaw hurts now from clenching so much. I did the Turkey Trot route with some extra loops, and Scout and I just ran around in the snow. At the end I took a quick picture to show we did it.

We got back just as everyone was getting up for Christmas. I toweled Scout off (and he was dirty from running in the dirty snow) and then got a quick shower before helping get Christmas under way.

2010 Christmas Light Dog Walk....

So today was my last day of work, and it was a full day. It could of been not a full day, but I was feeling full of Christmas Cheer, and let my co-worker leave early and saw her last patient so she could get on the road sooner. Yeah, I "CAN" be nice like that.

After work my friend and running partner met me (and Jason) at our house and took the dogs for a quick walk around the block. Then the people left and did a FAB Bubbly tasting at Wine 101 in Wake Forest. After sipping some great bubbles we had a glass from the wine station and then headed out for dinner. We went to Mellow Mushroom, again in Wake Forest where a Snowflake and Rudolph the Reindeer waited on us! Fun Times. Then we came home and took the dogs on a 2 hour dog walk through the neighborhood to look at Christmas Lights. Yeah...I didn't realize it was going to take that long but the pups sure did love being out! It was such a great night spent with a great FRIEND!!

Some Highlights of the walk:

Ugly Sweater Fun Run....

I met my friend Kim and went out for the Ugly Sweater Fun Run at Fleet Feet tonight. Of course we also decided to get there early and go ahead and start our run. Which means we missed a lot of the cool light displays because it wasn't dark enough and people weren't home to turn the lights on yet. On the directions it said to go past the *Great Lights* and then do a U TURN. Well we figured out where the *Great Lights* were at, but they weren't on yet. Kim and I were marveling on what it would look like when it was all turned on....when the owner came home and turned everything on! WOW!! It was really cool watching it all get turned on! The big Santa came up and it was HUGE!! It was a fun little run to go on. 3.85 miles in about 41 minutes...a little less then 11 min miles. We had a great time!

Disco Christmas with the running Peeps!

A good Attitude...

Today I worked at a dental office that I've been temping at off and on for a couple of months. I love that office. The staff is friendly and all seem to enjoy working around each other. I missed one of the girls who was out, we went to hygiene school together. Her smile always made the day nice. Of course there are lot's of smiles when you work at a dental office!! *winks* I had a patient after lunch that was an 89 year old gentleman. He was AWESOME! He had a joke about everything, and was super sweet! He told me about his wife and the health problems she was having, but he just had such a good attitude on life. It made me feel happy for him, and happy to think what a good attitude can do for everyone.

He put a smile on my face and made my day feel worth while. This man who has lived 89 years, was wearing hearing aids and still had a hard time hearing, who freely admitted he forgot lot's of stuff (including his wife's name from time to time), who clearly had been through a lot in his lifetime....was genuinely happy. I hope when I'm his age I can be just like him! Happy!

Here's to a Happy day!!

This Picture is obviously not of my day at work's from my run yesterday....but it's Happy!!

Look what I saw this morning...

Sometimes when I walk Scout by "Lake Adventure" (truly that's the name of the mini man-made lake in my neighborhood), I see this pretty blue heron. I can't be sure it's always the same one, but I'd like to think he/she is coming back to hang out. Why anything would want to hang out at the man-made lake full of neighborhood debris is beyond me, but I like seeing the wildlife.

I'm getting ready now for the rest of my day. Going to Church in Cary to sing Christmas Carols with my friend and her family, then lunch with the group, 10 mile run that was missed yesterday. You knew I would do it....right? (my bags are packed with my running stuff ready to go in the car, so there are no excuses when start running today it's going to be like 40 degrees!! That's AWESOME!).

The Highlander is back!


We picked up the Highlander today, over 3 weeks after the accident they were finally done working on my car. Hoping the insurance company comes through and decides to actually pay us the remaining balance on the repairs. *fingers crossed*

So is it bad that the car smells bad, as smells like something is burning. Hmmmm grrrrrr. Maybe the brakes? Maybe the engine seal? Maybe??? Oh I don't know. Hopefully it will last through the holidays and maybe we can really start thinking about a new (or new to us) car. Hmmmmm....maybe one like this?

Wine Club Holiday Party 2010

Last night was the Wine Club's Holiday Party! Was the party AWESOME??? Of course it was! Was I hung over? Yep, lot's of red wine does that. Did I miss my 10 mile run today...yep I sure did. Was it worth it? TOTALLY!

In 2008 I pretty much gave up drinking wine while I was training for my marathon. I vowed I wouldn't do that again. I want to still train and do races, but I also want to enjoy the other things in my life like WINE and food, without going overboard. Was last night overboard...sure it was. Does it happen all the time? No way, I don't live my life out of control....usually.

Black tongue and purple teeth was how I ended my the pictures you can tell the red wine drinkers vs the white wine drinkers....those of us who enjoy our red have purple teeth and black tongues, those white drinkers just have goofy looks on their faces!!*winks*

I Cleaned Scout's Teeth Today...

As some of you may know I've been cleaning my dogs teeth since he was a puppy. Cleaning as scaling instruments with sharp pointy edges. I kinda fell off the wagon of cleaning his teeth, and noticed that he really needed his teeth cleaned. (side note - I'm a dental hygienist). He's tartar at the gumline was icky, hard and just bad. I used to be able to take him to the dog park and wear him out so I could get in there and scale his teeth, except now it doesn't work like that anymore. He just doesn't play that hard anymore. So today I went over to my friends house and he has someone that cleans his dogs teeth that was coming over. We ended up giving Scout 3 Valerain Root capsules, and 10 mg of Valium. He was knocked out, but was more calm and I was able to get in a clean his teeth. I'm so HAPPY!! Scout now has nice clean teeth, and Hemy one of his best friends has nice clean teeth too!!*smiles*

I forgot to take a before picture, but look how pretty now!!

Another Side Note- Doing this on my own saved me somewhere between $450-$750 at the Vet. Plus I actually feel better not putting the sweet boy out completely.

I love my Puppy Dog...

I love my Dog. I call him a puppy, but really he's going to be 8 years old in March. OMG I can't believe it! He's really turning into an old man. He's so sweet still. He's still playful, at times. He's still a very handsome dog! I just love him so!

I woke up to SNOW..

So not much snow...but it's still SNOW!! We were prepared around here for the crazy weather we are supposed to be getting this morning, snow, then snow/sleet mix, then sleet, then just rain. Not sure what is really going to happen...but there was snow on the ground and coming down when I took Scout out for his morning walk. I put on my hiking boots, got my big jacket on, put on my knit hat and went out for a walk with Scout.

My office already called yesterday to say most of the patients had already called and cancelled their morning appointments, so I'm not expected in the office until the afternoon. Of course that depends on the weather.

My addiction to FACEBOOK, had gotten a little out of hand. I love checking in to see what's happening with all my friends, especially those I don't get to see that often anymore....but I find myself compelled to go hang out in FACEBOOK world for far more time that I'm willing to tell anyone. I've decided that I'm going to test myself and not get on facebook for the duration of the year. YIKES...that's going to be hard.

My run's will update because I have my runmeter set to show up on facebook, and people can still "talk" to me on the runs from that link, I may get everything everyone says, because it just starts talking to me. So I guess if you talk to me on facebook I'll get it when I run!!*winks* And my dailymile status will update, because I'll set that up too. As for pics etc, you'll have to wait to see the fun until the new year, or come back here or to my other blog.

I'll let you know how I'm doing with it all!


Okay, so I live in the SOUTH, the SOUTH as in Warm Weather!! Now we did get cold weather from time to time....but it's SOO COLD right now. I shouldn't really complain, I'm pretty sure it's cold just about everywhere right now. Well not everywhere...but you know. When I took Scout out for his walk this morning it was 18 degrees, and felt like 10. Brrrr. I haven't been running, I haven't been doing anything but trying to keep warm...ohh and working!!*smiles*

I think today it might get to be a little nicer, and YAY the sun is out already so that means it will feel a little nicer. WOO HOO!! I think I'll finally get a run in today. Running makes my world feel a little more sane! I should of been getting on my bike/ on my trainer while it's been cold....but I hate it. Maybe this winter will be the winter I learn to love my trainer??? Who's kidding, I'll get have to get on and do it!

They are calling for SNOW...yep SNOW tomorrow, and maybe this weekend too. WILD. Even more WILD is that Raleigh has already had snow. It's not officially winter...I just want to clarify, and we've had snow in the SOUTH!!

On a another random side note, Jason and I have a bet. I told him that this winter is going to be colder than last, he didn't think so. So he said if he wins I owe him $1. I told him I win he owes me a trip to Australia! Yeah...I'm actually hoping for a COLD WINTER!! *winks*

Just a house in the neighborhood...taken while walking Scout!

Savannah Trip!

Just got back from a really fun trip to Savannah Georgia! My first time to the "dirty south". Or rather the Eastern version of the Dirty South.

Chris under the SOTB sign
It started with a stop at South of the Border. I've driven past this cheesy "rest stop" a bunch of times going down to Charleston, but I've never stopped. Well I did this time. We just used the restrooms, which were clean and just fine despite what I've heard about them, and took a few pictures.

me with Pedro
Chris and the Buffalo
Me climbing the Giraffe
Me with the Buffalo
We stopped at Fatz and ate our lunch, and the went to a Stuckey's Gas and "crap" store. Stuckey's had a Dairy Queen inside and so we decide to have a little ice cream treat to take down the road. As it turns out that was a big mistake. Mild case of food poisoning happened after that. We survived, but it was a rough night for me, and a rough morning for Chris.

Once we got to Savannah, we went to packet pickup and the "expo" for the bridge run (that took about 5 minutes of our time), and then went to the Visitors Center (that closed up as we were trying to get across the street). Then we went to the hotel and got checked in. Our hotel was the farthest possible away from everything and still be on the "good" side of town. So we got a lot of walking in, but the good thing about Savannah, it's not that big, and easy to walk.

The first night (Friday) we went to a place called Jazz'd that the dentist that I work for recommended. I have to say Chris and I were impressed. After a quick trip to the ladies room (food poisoning from DQ) I was ready to enjoy my evening. It was a tapas restaurant and bar. Live Jazz music (later in the evening then we were there). Only thing I didn't like about it was it was a little smokey. (North Carolina finally passed the no smoking in the workplace law, which means bars and restaurants as well - Georgia has not, apparently) They had a great deal of Tapas for two, each person got a drink (soft drink or coffee/tea), soup or salad, and dessert, and you shared 4 tapas for $60! It was FANTASTIC! I got the black bean soup, and Chris got the she crab soup, we shared lamb chops with garlic and rosemary garnished with a Mediterranean salsa, beef shoulder tender w/ potatoes au gratin, chevre stuffed chicken breast, and the best of all baked cheese Terra Cotta plate
Terra Cotta Baked Cheese Plate
which had wesleyndale, fontania, brie, and a soft goat cheese- w/ apples, grapes, bread, and roasted garlic). Then for dessert we had a bread pudding that was soooo good, and a creme brulee that was super yummy.

Saturday we got and ran the bridge (you can read about it in my other blog), and then went back to the hotel to rest a little bit. Then went back into Savannah and shopped and had lunch. Lunch was suggested to us by the great people at the Grateful Hound (where I bought Scout some treats). We went to a little French Sandwich shop around the corner. OMG it was so GOOD! I can't remember the name of the sandwich, but so fab
Ohh and the acorn/butternut squash soup super yummy as well. When the food came out I thought I wouldn't be able to eat it all, and Chris said he'd carry around my leftover's but as it turned out all he would of had to carry would of been this...and how silly would that of looked? (just carrying the fork with one bite left)
Chris ready to carry my leftovers around Savannah
Dinner on Saturday was at the Bohemian Hotel (Rocks on the Roof). It wasn't the best dinner EVER, but the food was good. Our server was great, and we got a little show as the table behind us was carded and cleared out by security. How do you have a purse but no ID?? hmmmm. I had a few yummy drinks on Saturday night, which included a margarita, a white russian made with tequila instead of vodka, and a very sweet funky monkey (chocolate/banana martini), Chris had 1 glass of wine....but he drank about half of all my drinks so it worked out. Ohh and did I mention we sat outside, and could see the bridge we ran across that morning as we were eating and drinking? Yeah, pretty much a great night!
View from Rocks Rooftop
Sunday we got up and headed back to Starbucks (I didn't include all of the times we went to Starbucks....but it was a lot, but the Starbucks in Savannah is pretty cool). This Starbucks has a clover machine, which isn't that cool for non-coffee drinking people (like me), but Chris was ready to have a coffee orgasm right in the middle of store. For those of you who want to know more about the clover system here is a link to the clover. I, of course had hot chocolate and chai latte for my drinks at Starbucks. Then we got on the road and drove back to Raleigh, where it had snowed on Saturday (a unheard of thing for December, and especially early December). No snow on the roadways when we got into town and only a little on some of the grassy areas. Ohh did I mention that it was 68 degrees in Savannah on Saturday after the run. Yeah it was a nice little trip!
