New Year's Resoution--Check!
Since I'm no longer pregnant or nursing, I was determined to reach for a running goal this year. And I couldn't have picked a better partner for my first ever 13.1. (I'm trying not to call it a "half-marathon". Who care what is is half of? It's a race in and of itself!). Buffalo Creek was a beautiful, flat, trail course. Please ignore the porta-potties behind us in the "before" picture. Just keeping it real.
We both broke our time goals and were pleased with ourselves. Hot apple cider has never tasted so good!
Check out this cheering section! Aren't they the best? Flowers for each of us!
And what better way to celebrate our girls "Aunt" Hannah then with Ethiopian food? We are THOSE friends to her, of course! Who knows how often she'll have such exposure on the "res"? The girls loved the cuisine as well. But not as much as they loved spending time with her. We are so thrilled for her and the future "Uncle Matt" and know they will be blessed in their lives together. We plan to soak up as much time as we can with her still in the Midwest. Carrigan, in particular, will be providing more "vice-grip" hugs.
