    Hey sweet girl!! thank you so much for the bear hug!! I too hope to see you soon!! missin' my spark family!

    will you be at the 12/4 run the rock race?

    I want to run the New Years Double, I want to do the relay both days but I think that's a next years goal at this point. I know thought I can do the 5K both days, so I think I"ll sign up for that.... if the race is still open!

    I also want to do the hot chocolate run again! :)

    That's a good idea to start with a 5k program. The half marathon schedules seem so daunting right now. Plus I can work up a 5k running with the jogging stroller! Do you know if training with a stroller gives you a good boost in a race situation? I saw that triple stroller you have, that has to give a good leg workout!

    You have a beautiful family! Do you have any races planned yet? I really would like to be back in running shape for the Turkey Trot, but I haven't done much running since December, and am having trouble getting any workouts in right now.

    LO and me are doing well. I have a jogging stoller and I am walk/ jogging with it in the morning. I hope to start half marathon training on Monday and train for a half that is in December. I have lost 20 pounds of the 56 that I gained while pregnant, but that was in the first two weeks pp and I am having problems sheding the rest emoticon . I went vegan on monday to see if that can help me lose the weight ( plus I think LO has gas because of all the dairy I was eating). How did you lose the baby weight ( all four times! You must a pro at it by now!!!) How is your LO? How do you make time to get exercise in with 4 kids?b
