A Bunch of Stuff

First of all - I'd like to thank everyone for all your kind words after Owen's grandmother passed away last week.  It was unexpected and we had a long, rough trip to South Carolina but we were where we needed to be.  Your thoughts and prayers mean so much to us!

This post is gonna seem like a bunch of random things but it's just because I have lots to tell you!

First of all - IT'S RACE WEEK!  SQUEE!!!!!  The Germantown Half Marathon is THIS Sunday.  That means it's time to really watch what I eat, get plenty of rest, keep hydrated, and NOT GET SICK OR INJURED!  I am still planning my regular workout regime for the week - I did 45 minutes on the elliptical this morning and I plan for my two 40 minute runs later this week.  However, I came home from South Carolina with a head cold (allergy attack - why does that state hate me so??!!!) so if I am not totally feeling it I will cancel my workout in lieu of rest so that I'm not feeling worse by Sunday.  I did manage to get my 4 mile run in on Friday and am extremely pleased to report that despite being in the foothills of the Appalachians I managed a 41:41 time - I'm still not quite sure how I pulled that off but that's what the watch says - so it shall be :)  I am still gunning for a PR for this race so I hope with a little TLC this week I can pull it off.

Speaking of running -

Notice my  new button over here to the right?  That's right - I am officially a Running Blogger!  I am so excited to be a part of this network and hope to gain new blogg friends and followers through this new venture.  If you are a new reader here - welcome!

Lastly, I think it's about time for The Smith Summary to get a little overhaul - I've already made some small changes and I'm thinking the blog needs a face lift.  I am by NO means an HTML expert - anyone out there have any recommendations on someone I could contact about getting a new blog design??
