I'm Home Again

Wow! A lot has changed since I've blogged!  First of all, I am now a stay at home Mom again.  I'm loving every second and looking forward to summer when the kids and I can get out and have some fun.  This was a tough decision for me to make because I actually loved my job and the people that I worked with and for.  I know that I made the right decision though!  For our family things were just a little chaotic.  We are a large family and involved in a lot of things!  This year was Luci's first year of school and I was finding it hard to get away and attend her school activities.  Those are things that I just wasn't going to continue missing.  She's only little once and I can sacrifice material things for this time with her.  Joey's job also requires travel and a lot of time away so me being home allows things to be a little less chaotic.  His support is also allowing me to pursue my dreams and I can't thank him enough.

Being home has allowed me to eat lunch with Luci every Friday, attend every party, school event, and every field trip!  I wouldn't trade these moments for anything.  It also allows me to get workouts done during the day so they have my attention in the evenings.  I usually go to the gym 2-3 days a week for classes and cross training and I run 6 days a week with Friday being my rest day. 

It's been such an exciting year!  Since November...I've ran the New York City marathon, the Chevron Houston Marathon, the Glass Slipper Challenge at Disney World, and several local races.  Now that I have time off, I plan to get some race recaps up soon.  I started working with run coach in January and have since gotten a personal best in my half marathon, 15k, and 5k.  I'm currently training for the Chicago Marathon where my goal is to break 4 hours. 

Lunch is calling my name, but stay tuned for blog posts in the days to come!  Also, a few pictures below of what life is like.  Total Bliss!  So Blessed!
