Happy New Year!

(Kitty) What are you going to do? We're going to lie around all day watching TV and movies on DVD, eating and drinking too much, and generally being incredibly lazy. Then we're going to get up Friday morning and run again.

Because we have to.

Because that half marathon is only a month away!!! Eeek!!! LOL!!

Finally on Facebook and Twitter!

(Kitty) After a campaign by many of my friends to mock me until I finally joined - I am officially on Facebook and Twitter now! It's been more fun even on just the first day than I expected! But I can see that I was right about perhaps not getting enough work done with Facebook up! LOL!

Playing with your food or Merry Christmas?

Would love to see what this guy would do with the rest of the Christmas dinner!
Back In the Running

(Kitty) After three weeks of moping around a bit and giving in to being "too tired to run" in the morning (probably from going to bed after midnight for days on end just because we could!) -


We're running the Surf City Half Marathon in Huntington Beach, on Sunday, February 1 (SuperBowl Sunday). Woo-hooo! (I think.) It's kind of hard to get our excitement up again. Part of me is wondering what kind of cataclysmic event is going to happen to cancel this marathon! But... I'm sure we'll actually get to run it. And as our friend Dwight (who you may remember is trying to run a marathon, but also got cancelled out of the Pasadena one) said, "At least this one we know we can finish! It's on a flat beach, not hills!"

So John and I finally started running again on Saturday (with only 8 weeks to train before the race!). The good news is that I pushed myself and did a good time for the 1-mile and 3-mile marks. (I'm not going to tell you we only ran 3 miles. But hey! It's been three weeks since we ran at all!) Then today I did an even better 1-mile time, but missed a stoplight and was slower than my Saturday 3-mile time by 23 seconds.

The bad news is my heart feels like it's going to explode all over the inside of my chest! LOL! As John put it today, "When you're at the store today, will you pick me up a men's large stamina?"

LOL!! So - we'll keep you updated!! PLEASE leave some comments here and cheer us on!!

Did You See What We Saw?

John and Doug and I saw the awesome evening light show Sunday night, but we didn't realize at the time that it was an 'event.' It was just beautiful! I kept watching it even as we drove back into LA. Here are two cool pictures from http://www.news.com.au/ if you haven't seen them already.

Venus, Jupiter and the crescent moon appeared so bright and so close together Sunday night that they appeared as a smiley face in the sky in the Southern Hemisphere (Melbourne, Australia, below),

and a frowning face in the Northern Hemisphere (Manhattan, New York, below).
Now I have the words and music from "Little Drummer Boy" in my head. Pretty appropriate. :)
