Weekend Wrap-Up

Why is it that weekends always seem so short???


Another busy weekend at the Smith house!  So much to tell you about so I thought a quick weekend recap would do the trick!!

Arlington 5K
It was FREEZING but I was happy to be able to join in on this event!  My "goal" was to run an easy 5K since it was technically my rest day and I am pleased to report that I finished in 31:34; by my Garmin the course was only 3.06 miles and I tried to run the tangets pretty closely but I'm still very pleased with the finish!  All in all it was a good run for a great cause :)

Since Morgan has been sick I stayed at home with her instead of taking her out in the cold for Samantha's soccer game.  I am pleased to report though that my soccer star scored another goal at this week's game!  So proud of her!!!

We also spent the day Saturday clearing out leftover baby things.  I can't believe that between having two children we have so much stuff that we will never need anymore; kinda sad to watch some of that stuff go, but at least I know these things are going to good people that need them.

Saturday night we enjoyed another family movie night and got to watch a sneak peek of a new Garfield cartoon called "The Garfield Show:  A Purr-fect Life"; you guys remember Garfield, right?  He's back and coming to DVD and I will have a full review for you on the blog later on this week, so stay tuned!

10K at race pace
I'll be honest, I had a hard time waking up yesterday morning but I knew I had to get this run done.  And MAN, did I get it done!  Check this out:

Yup, that happened.  I still cannot believe it.  My goal was to finish in 1:03:08 and I smoked it.  I have had times since I made the decision to switch gears and focus on speed that I've questioned my decision not to run the St. Jude full (i.e. this weekend as I watched a bunch of my running friends conquer the Marine Corps Marathon) but after this run I know I have made the right decision.  Speaking of St. Jude, look what I got!!

OH yeah.  It's coming folks!!!

We finished the day Sunday with our usual chores and then took the girls to the pumpkin patch; Morgan is officially OBSESSED with pumpkins and I'm glad to report that both girls had a blast!!!

Glad we had the chance to get a little family fun in this weekend because the next three weekends are going to be a whirlwind!  Buckle your safety belts, it's gonna be a fun ride!!!

QOTD:  Do you have your Halloween pumpkin ready for Thursday??  Owen carved ours last night - I'll post pics later this week!
