Snow, goals and giveaway winners!

First things first - Snow in Saint George! Yahoo! We woke up to some snow this morning, crazy I know. The kids were more than excited to go outside this morning, good thing they did because it has already melted. Jonah looks like Ralphy's brother in "A Christmas Story." Love it!


Goals - 2011! I have a huge list, I wouldn't want to bore you with all my goals because the list keeps getting bigger. But one thing I want to do this year is to train for a half marathon, then run a half marathon with my sister Jessie.
I have the outfit and shoes already to go - now to just run off this baby weight!!!
Wish me luck - I was going to start today, but I told myself I didn't need to start because it snowed - not a good start. :(



So -- winners! Thanks so much for the entries for my giveaway! What a great response. So glad I got new followers and lots of you signed up for the newsletter - you won't regret it. We have awesome deals for our newsletter subscribers.

Oh my gosh Judi if I had those shoes and that top I'd even be motivated to run. Waiting for my foot to heal up so I can start walking again. Love the shoes.

What a great running outfit! The hardest part of training for a half marathon, taking the very first step! I hope you take yours tomorrow!

Good Luck with all your 2011 goals.

awesome! I just ran my 2nd half marathon Dec 4th and beat my record by 27minutes woot! I hope your sister is local, if not get a running buddy. It's so easy to get complacent in your runs when you don't have someone to push you along ...or drag you out of bed :)

I'd love to hear about your progress but beware that it takes a lot of time!

Wow, Judi, you're something else! I'm thrilled if I go for a half-hour walk with my husband 3 times a week! I'm pretty sure a half marathon would kill me!

It will be fun to watch your progress and cheer you on from the keyboard! You go girl!

I'm so excited that I won! Thanks so much.

I believe that getting a new workout outfit is a good motivator. At least when you're starting out. And yours is adorable. I especially like the shoes.

Good luck with your run... What a cutie in the snow.

Good luck with the half marathon! My twin sister runs marathons and half marathons, and I wonder, "Can we really be identical twins?" because I HATE running. But when we are together, I run short distances with her because a little exercise never hurt anyone, right? Love the shoes!

Bring on the love of running. What ever you do you MUST run the Snow Canyon Half it will be your favorite! I think I might just have to join you because I loved it SO very much!!! Will you be in CA in Feb? We need to go running again, just like last year!!! I really missed you guys over the holidays. I can't wait to talk baby #4 with you, and catch up with life. I wish you lived closer!!! Oh, and I love all the pink. It's my favorite to run in too!

Congratulations to the winners.

Yep....you can't run in snow!!!! It was the perfect excuse.

Kim said...

Congratulations to the winners! Great giveaway!

Terri said...

Congrats to the winners! Keep up the great work and the wonderful giveaways. (I assume since I didn't get an email, I'm not the right Terri!)

Michele said...

Congrats to the winners! Your running out fit is cute! Love the color! I believe it's the 'color of the year-Honeysuckle' Read about the color of the year on the Moose on the Porch blog. I had not seen much of that color yet, but there it is!

Snow is a good reason to not run. What would happen if you fell and broke both your arms? Your elbows would be in splints, so you couldn't dial... (you've got mail reference)
