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?
