My classy lady!

Checking her email topless - just how the classy ladies do it! : )

Running with Bronchitis?! :(

I feel like this woman's blog article sums up my recent experience perfectly.
Bottom line=Bronchitis and Half-marathon training DO NOT MIX. I'm sick of being sick, and I'm impatiently waiting to run again!

Gym Tots Class!

Last Sunday Zoey started her first gymnastics/tumbling class at Head Over Heels in Emeryville, and it was such a FUN experience for all of us! Zoey got to roll around, jump on trampolines, walk on the balance beam, and slide into a giant foam pit with her "Gym Tots" class. And the parents got to play too! What a great way for Z to burn off energy, work on her balance and coordination skills, interact with other wild kiddos, and start to learn about following instructions and listening to a teacher in an organized class. We look forward to class again tomorrow - we'll be in class for the next 9 weeks every Sunday morning. :)

Super Bowl Sunday!

A little belated, but we had a FAB time last Sunday watching the Super Bowl (aka Awesome Madonna Half-Time show and funny commercials!) with our friends Andrea & Marianna. The girls played well together, we laughed and ate yummy food, and most importantly we spent quality time hanging out and catching up with our dear friends. It's so cute to see Z & M growing up together and becoming friends! : )

LOVE my new running shoes!

Now that I'm running longer distances and training for my first 1/2 Marathon, I realized I needed to invest in some higher quality, cushioned running shoes. I did a lot of research and tried on a slew of different shoes, and these were the clear winners - the Brooks Glycerin 8. I was ready to make the investment in these shoes while shopping at Transports in Oakland, and was happily surprised to learn they were on sale for 40% off!
And as I break them in, I've reconfirmed that I love them! I wore them for the first time yesterday during my run and it felt like I've been wearing them for years! Perfect fit, super cushy and great support. Let the training commence!
