I Trotted

What a fun Thanksgiving! The only thing that would have made it better is if Steven had been there. Started out with an early morning run in beautiful downtown Austin at the Turkey Trot, in full costume of course, because we LOVE to dress up. Had to stop in the middle of the race for a photo op in front of the capital that was too good to pass up.

Then drove to San Antonio for a big dinner with my family, including the 3 little angels/nieces that were here all the way from Peoria. Texas girls at heart, they were all wearing shiny new cowboy boots.

Should I?

Thinking about doing another 5K with friends--The Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning. Would make for a busy day, but it sure would take away some of the guilt of eating so much yummy food!

Twilight is Coming

I have succumbed to the Twilight craze. I am almost done with the fourth and last book in the series, and the movie comes out Nov 21! Yes, I have already bought my ticket online. I recommend the books to those young and old. It is a modern day romance between a girl and a vampire, with werewolves and a few other surprises thrown in. My heart aches when i'm reading it! Only 10 days to go...

Celebrity Spotted

On Sunday my friends and i ran the Run for the Water 5K. An older woman walking the 5K, coming towards us after the turnaround, was with a gentleman on a bicycle riding slowly alongside her, and a police car followed behind them. As they passed, the guy looked right at me and said "Good job!" The guy was Tom Cruise. Yes, he spoke to me. I didn't answer back, but he spoke to me!
