Sand between my toes

M and I are headed to Florida tomorrow after I get off work to go visit some family. It just happens that they live on/near the beach in South Florida. We are pretty obsessed with the beach and warm hot weather. Hopefully the rain that has been pounding Florida will end just in time for me to live on the beach for 3 days. Our plan is to live down there after M finishes school and provided we find jobs. I day dream about the day I can decorate my house near the ocean.

What's funny is that my house now is nothing like this. Granted, I live in boring, rainy Georgia. Our apartment now is very contemporary with a lot of dark wood, but I don't think that will cut it living on the coast.

Off to pack...

Marine Corps Half Marathon

My husband and I and our friends Lauren and Pat are running the Marine Corps Half Marathon in October. My husband, M, and Lauren's husband, Pat, are both Marines and we thought this would be something fun to do togteher! Now, I like to consider myself a runner. However, the end of my competitive running came with the end of track season my senior year of high school. I ran on and off through college and ran in a few 5k's. Since I got married in September I can count on two hands how many times I've hit the pavement. So you see, I’m severely out of shape. What’s hard is I feel like I should just be able to get out there and run 8 miles like I used to and I get frustrated easily. I’ve also ran a half before and I would really like to beat my time. And my ultimate goal is to run a full marathon sometime next year.
Hopefully this will be a way to keep up with my workouts and mileage and one day I’ll look like this

First Blog...

So lately I've been reading a lot of blogs and I decided to try it out. I don't have a specific theme so, enjoy the randomness!
