Feeling Sporty

So, I don't know about anyone else, but this has been a sports-filled weekend in our household! First of course, we had the TTU vs. UT game last night, and although I didn't think it was possible...I was sucked in! Yes, I was one of those people who started yelling at the screen and when Crabtree caught that final pass I was jumping up and down and screaming my little lungs out! Usually, I'm the first one to start a seperate room at big games where conversation about other things is allowed, but this time I stayed in the room with the boys and cheered for Tech! I thought I would share a few pics from our little party! Go Tech!


Ava & I had lots of fun together at the game!

The sports weekend continued as Josh spent most of today watching the Cowboys and watching sports shows to find out where Tech would land in the BCS standings. But it was also a sports weekend for me because today was the NYC Marathon! I ran the New York Marathon in 2006, and it was one of the most exhilerating experiences of my life. As I read online about Paula Radcliffe winning (she is this amazing runner) I have to admit that I was so wishing that I had run it today! So, I'm sitting here tonight contemplating whether or not I should start training for another race...the problem is that my A-Type personality says, "if I run another marathon, I want to qualify for the Boston Marathon." That would be the DREAM race...to qualify I would need to run the marathon in 3 hours & 40 minutes...I ran my last marathon in 4 hours & 3 minutes, so I'm only 23 minutes off, which means I would need to shed a minute off each mile...not sure if it is doable, but I'm thinking about it! For now, I'll start by getting up in the morning and running a couple of miles!
(Can you tell that I'm doing my best to smile for the camera?
Inside I was wincing & mostly happy to be finished...
although it was pretty cool to finish in Central Park)

Cute pics! I was screaming so loud I thought my neighbors may call the cops. Ava looks like a great cheerleader!

I think you should do it!!! If only I have to motivation, drive, and lung capacity! Oh, I need to get some copies of the pictures from Saturday night. They are too cute.
