Route 66 Countdown: 20 days

It's early so I'm saying this out loud now while I'm feeling motivated. I'm going to give up alcohol and crappy food for the next 20 days in preparation for the half-marathon (and Thanksgiving). I think I will feel prepared and a little lighter for the walk. It would also be nice to lose some chub chub before Thanksgiving, cookie exchanges, holiday parties, etc. etc.

I am quite sore today after my long walk yesterday. Some stretching and light exercise today should do the trick though.

No school today or tomorrow. School conferences. Have no idea what the day will bring.

Lots of catching up so I am repling to all here. I love Lucy's face in the halloween picture! I am so proud of you for sticking with your training. A three hour or 10 mile walk is huge, that is awesome!!!! I played soccer with Luke today and realized how out of shape I have allowed myself to get, I am starting to walk/run again tonight. I totally relate on the time change. Kids just wake up a hour earlier now, nothing exciting for us as moms to look forward too, just a longer day. See ya soon:)

can't take credit for the salad. I found the picture on flikr. I think it's arugula, apples and blueberries. Looks so yummy!

and roasted pecans. I think I would add maybe just a little feta or gorgonzola.
