Home again home again dancing a jig

Ok, I guess technically Tehani isn't dancing. But she is home again. She actually flew back by herself. My mom put her on the plane at O'Hare and I got a security pass to pick her up at the gate here. My little girl is all growed up :)

Here's a pic of my lil' frequent flier showing off the new luggage that she got while in Chicago (Thanks Grandma!) We haven't unpacked yet but I'll just assume that Tehani scored so much new stuff that she needed more luggage to get it all back here. (Maybe I need to go home and visit sometime :)

Welcome Home Tehani! We're glad to have you back!

Pioneer Day 5K: I'm Lovin' It

While most of the civilized world spent their day off from work sleeping in, Simone and I trekked up to Salt Lake for the Deseret News 5K race. When I saw that Ronald himself was the MC/mascot for the race, I just knew I had to get a pic for my scrapbook (because nothing says "health" and "fitness" like Mr. Mickey D himself :)

I mean, who knew that Ronald McDonald was a runner?

The good news: He did not beat us in the race.

The bad news: I guess there wasn't really any bad news--other than the fact that I was tired the rest of the day (Which is pretty lame since a 5K is only 3 miles)

Let Freedom Run

Just a quick post to let you know that I am alive and well (I know my lack of blogging had some people wondering if it was time to put put out a missing person alert :)

Anyway, I am doing so well that I managed to squeeze in a 5K to celebrate the 4th of July (last time I ran this race was back in in 2008) I've never been a huge runner in the past but it felt good doing the run (even though I am pretty sure that I'm going to be sore for days)

Now that I'm done with school (my last class was two weeks ago :) I figured that gives me a little more free time for getting back in shape. Because in addition to gaining an MBA, I managed to gain about 30 pounds over the past two year!! So its time to run, run, run!! The next race I'm doing is the Deseret News 5K on July 25, so if you are interested in a running buddy let me know.

Happy Fourth!!
