This blog is about juggling a busy career, marriage, a love of running, a passion for water, and a desire to be more fit and healthy. It is about everyday and how we balance the expected in life with the unexpected and keep on "RUNin'". I am not that extraordinary or facing anything you aren't; just taking care of an aging parent and my 6 cats. Learning to roll with it and hang on for the ride, hopefully with a little humor and a dash of sarcasm!

Week in Review
This has been a pretty good week. Today was day 23 of my RW Holiday Running Streak and hubby and I headed out for a nice 6 mile run. I have really been enjoying my runs since I made the decision to stick with shorter races in the coming year. I am just going to focus on consistency and health.
I am also excited that I managed to keep my streak even though I had to fly to Denver for a quick overnight trip on Thursday.

I also had a pretty fun week because I got new Sockwell Compression socks. I don't know about you, but I love getting new running stuff. Especially if they are cute. And these felt great and were super cute. I tested my new compression before heading out to Denver on Thursday with a hill run. It went great I was much faster than I anticipated being. I also got in two gym strength sessions and I squeezed in a quick strength session today with free weights, some planks, and push ups.
I am going to do a little recovery run tomorrow and hit the gym after work. I also discovered that visiting my Chiropractor before getting on my flight made a big difference. My hip and legs did not feel nearly as tight as usual. I will definitely try that in the future.
Hubby and I both have two more weeks of work then two weeks off. I always look forward to this time every year to recharge, but I must admit I am looking forward to it more this year.
Yesterday we wrapped up the ATC season at the mile run. Both hubby and I also collected our Bunny Awards for running every race in the Grand Prix season. It was my second his fourth.
I hope you had a good week and are finding a way to squeeze in exercise during the holiday season and some good nutrition among all the temptations.
Today I am grateful that was my last trip of the year. I am home with hubby and kitties for the rest of the year!!
