Happy New Year. I hope you were able to enjoy the holidays. I did, despite life happenings. I am just recovering from last week’s bout of a bad cold and sinus infection. I felt the symptoms last Monday, saw the doctor Tuesday, and now it is New Year’s and I feel normal again. Just in time to go back to work tomorrow.

Instead of running the Thanksgiving Half Marathon, I ended up running 10 miles with one of my runner friends. That gave me precious time for the rest of the day to spend with my family. Particularly my Grandmother, as she peacefully passed a few weeks ago at 93.

Back in August, she thought it was NOT a good idea because Thanksgiving is THE holiday in my family. Quite honestly, I don’t think my parents were too keen on the idea, but Grandmother was verbal about it. I thought it would be okay, as I would be back in town by noon or so. A month prior,  I told Grandmother that I would be staying in town and not running the race, and she was pleased. Instead, I ran the 26.2 Soldier Marathon Relay here in town with 3 other ladies.

For the past couple of weeks, I have run 3-6 miles a handful of times. They were good runs too.  I have also been doing a daily yoga practice at my local studio and at home. I have new floors installed throughout my entire house, so I have been practicing in different rooms to figure out which one works the best. So tell me, how have you all ben doing?


(We like this room the best!)

  1. My condolences on your loss. It was a great decision to spend time w/ the family and glad you’re feeling better. Sinus infections are the absolute worst! As an aside, I’m an aspiring runner and yogi, so I really enjoyed your post.

  2. Hey!
    First, my condolences on the loss of your grandma. It’s good you got to spend time with her.
    I’m just in awe that you can go out and run 3 or 10 miles for fun. I will have to exercise vicariously through you. Kudos to you for being a fitness inspiration.

    Does your dog do doggy yoga as well or play the part of judge on your poses? How cute. 🙂

    • Thank you for your condolences. You are one of my favorite bloggers! It is unseasonably cold this week where I live, so I’ve been doing yoga daily until it warms up Sunday. I can’t wait for Sunday to come! Sugar likes to lay down and watch me do yoga. I think it comes from when she would constantly lick my face and me yelling “MOVE SUGAR!”. Take care.
