Savannah River Bridge Run

I told Andy at the beginning of last week that I wanted to start running. Emphasis on START. As in, I've not run in three years, I'm going to walk a lot and throw in some jogging, work my way up, start running. So, he calls me on Thursday and says, "You want to run in a 5K? I'm going to sign us up." Seriously? After telling him there would be a lot more walking than running, I agree. Besides, we're in Savannah - it's all flat, right? Nope - The Talmadge Memorial Bridge, which we ran across, has a 5.5% grade for almost a mile. I would have posted pictures of me crawling up the bridge, but there wasn't a pretty one in the bunch. :-)

Christmas is nearly here!

I took the boys to a local park to make their pictures for our Christmas cards. Jake was really into posing for the pictures. Will, on the other hand, thought it was really funny to pose right until I was ready to take the picture, and then to take off running. We have been busy trying to get gifts bought and wrapped, and lights on the house and tree, etc. It's been hard to get into the holiday spirit here because when I walk out of the house it's 75 degrees outside. You would think one wouldn't complain about warm weather, but IT'S DECEMBER! This will be my first bright and sunny Christmas.
