Run like Hell Heather!

Last Sunday Julie and I ran in the Rock and Roll 1/2 marathon in San Antonio. It was an adventure, it was an adventure just to get to the start line. Since there were over 30,000 people running and the start line was down town everyone had to ride a shuttle to get there. We waited almost an hour to get on the shuttle. We were 40 minutes late to the start line and our corral hadn't even left yet. We had time to potty and find our spot in line and then wait another 10 minutes before we began running. I was almost tired when we started running. The course was great, lots of bands lots of people to look at and lots of cheering crowds. Julie and I usually talk the whole time we run but instead we kept commenting that there was way too many exciting things to look at to talk!! We finished in 2:32, that was the official time, my watch time was less because I stopped it at potty breaks. Here are some pictures of the race and one of my new rock star hair!:

Running: Although I can't really see us in the picture, I promise we're there!

Post Race Craziness:
Rock Star Hair: I just realized I have it tamed back, but yes, it's really dark. I almost died in the salon but I never like my hair right away so it's growing on me. Also, I got new mascara...Do I have clumpy lashes?

Gloria Day

When I was growing up Wednesday was known as Gloria Day in our house. You might think it was a day of celebration but to a young person it was a day of torture. You see the night before Gloria Day we had to prepare for Gloria. Who was Gloria you might ask? She was the lady that cleaned our house and the reason I dreaded Tuesday night. We had to clean our rooms and help tidy up around the house all while listening to my parents proclaim that tomorrow was Gloria Day over and over again. I think they said it so many times for two reasons: 1) Meredith and I were probably not doing what we were supposed to and 2) because they were so excited to have a clean house. I understand that now that I have someone come clean my house. Just to think of coming home to a sparkly house makes me look forward to Stephanie Day every other Tuesday. So, I forgive you Mom and Dad for making me clean for the house cleaner, I forgive you for annoying me to no end with your Gloria Day proclamations, because know I do it too!

Gosh I'm boring...

I am in a complete blog rut. I'm going to blame it on the time change, now that it's dark at 5:30 all I want to do is sit around or get in bed. It's terrible.

I took Bowen to get a haircut this afternoon, the stylist did a pretty good job in the damage control department.

We also went to Hobby Lobby to get some Christmas decorations. I know it's totally not time for that yet but if I didn't do it this week, I'm not sure when I would have gotten around to it.

We had to pay big bucks to get Myrtle (the car) working correctly last weekend. I HATE paying for car repairs, I'd rather not bother and just get a new car. I even checked on that possibility, it wasn't possible.

Blake is having a lower GI test run tomorrow at Cook's (which is the most wonderful place, all our experiences there have been stellar). I know it will be hard on Blake but maybe harder on her parents as she won't remember anything about it. So, while you are praying that Blake will be OK, also pray that Mere and Ryan will be OK too.

Be sure to VOTE!

Who will come out on top???

We'll find out tomorrow! No matter who wins, I'm taking my bumper sticker off, I think it's nerdy to drive around with an election sticker on your car after the election!

Here is a list of things I need to blog about. Sometimes the longer the list gets, the less I want to blog:

Justin and Leslie's visit to Fort Worth

Halloween, which is not limited to Trick or Treat on October 31st

Laurie Berkner concert

Election Day

The fact that my race is 2 weeks away

I really tried to start a real live post tonight but I couldn't get my pictures off the camera.

Maybe a short list of Random Thoughts will hold you over:

It's 7:30 and it's pitch black outside, all I want to do is go to bed.

I need a random day off.

My cat kills squirrels, really, we've found 4 in our yard in the past 3 weeks.

I really want Laine to get her hair cut shorter but I won't make her.

Jonathan and I have become addicted to shows like Paranormal State, Ghost Adventures and Scariest Places on Earth. Nerds.

I have a meeting on Tuesday, at 7:30 in the morning, I picked the time, what was I thinking?

High School Musical 3 is the only movie I've seen in quite a while.
