After the Holidays

It was so nice to take a break from everything for a while. I will admit that my running slacked off a little bit, but I have quickly gotten back on track and I am hammering out the miles. On New Years Eve morning (5am) I went for a run with the team. It was 27 degrees when we started, and 28 degrees 2 hours later when we finished. After the run we celebrated the coach's birthday at Hibachi Grill in Greenville. I mostly ate Chinese food and it was sooooo good. I went home and tried to take a nap but my neighbor was playing his music so loud that I was just tossing and turning and getting frustrated so I decided I would just have to sleep later. The run was a total of 10 miles and you can check out the course here. I like to put it in "Bird's Eye" view which is pretty neat.

Justus and I discovered a park in Washington, NC that deserves to be noticed. It is called Goose Creek State Park. We went for the first time on December 30th and there was snow on the ground. We went again with TJ and 'James Bond' on January 2nd and the snow was gone and the sun was up. Then.... it rained and it rained HARD. We ended up hiking 5.65 miles and had a great time, even with the rain. TJ got a big branch of leaves and put it over his head and joked that it was his umbrella. Too funny....
December 30, 2010 - Snow!
Jan 2, 2011 - It's as if to say "Ah, life is good my friend."
January 2nd, 2011 - Before the rain
TJ makes an umbrella!
