My Month in Review

It's been a long time. I've missed posting, so here it goes. The past month has been a whirlwind. Angela got married, I totaled the Acura, Kody started back to school, and I started training for my third half marathon. Don't worry, everyone was fine in the accident. It was a minor fender bender. They "totaled" my car because the parts are so expensive. They don't make Legends anymore and it's a 94 so the value wasn't extremely high anyway. It all worked out thought. We bought the car back from insurance and they gave us more than enough money in the settlement to fix it. We were without the car for a month. I got it back on Wednesday. It was such a happy day. Fortunately, I work right down the street from the medical school so Kody and I carpooled every day. The only bad thing was I had to leave the house at 5:30 AM with him everyday. I would come up to my office and workout because there is a gym in the basement. I'm just thankful I don't have to wake up at 5 AM anymore! Kody sent me some gorgeous roses when we got the car back. I know it sounds silly, but I went through a lot of frustrations trying to get everything handled. He's very thoughtful.

I started training for the Route 66 1/2 marathon that is here in Tulsa the weekend before Thanksgiving. I'm about to wrap up week number 3 with a 10 mile run on Saturday. It has felt so great to start running again. I always work out, but I hadn't been running like I normally do. I'm starting to feel like myself again. I can't wait. I'm planning on running in the Cowtown 1/2 marathon in Fort Worth in Feb. and the Memorial 1/2 in OKC in April. I don't want to just run them anymore, I want to get good at them. I will too, I'm stubborn like that.

As most of you know, I am a football fanatic so I have highly enjoy the past few weeks. We have been to a couple of Kellen's high school games. He's playing great! Last night they played Sand Springs and won their first district game. Kellen had some great runs and tackles on defense. He's probably averaging 8 yards a carry. It's fun to be able to watch him. Also, Kody and I are playing intramural football at the medical school. We are 1-1 although we should be 2-o. I had a touchdown in the first game and last night I scored an extra point and had an interception. I'm pretty much amazing. :) Kody also laid me out. He didn't' see me and plowed me over when we were on defense. My neck is a little sore this morning for taking the hit, but I was tough. Kody's mouth started bleeding a little afterwards. And finally, college football has begun. Last weekend we had a football party at our house which consisted of me, Kody, my mom, Stephen and Clayton. I made a blue cake with orange icing with a big UF on it for Florida. The Gators are 3-0 and looking pretty amazing. I can't wait until we go to Gainesville for the big Florida/Florida St. game. It's going to be fantastic!

Robin is coming home this weekend. We are going to the State Fair on Sunday with the fam. I can't wait! I hope everyone has a great weekend! Go Gators!
