First and foremost, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I kind of took a hiatus from social media and running. Going back to work made it really hard to balance everything so I chose to make my family my main priority during the holidays. Since this was our very first Christmas with our little blessing we wanted to soak it all in. I don't regret it one bit.

I didn't see the point in blogging about my lack of running so I just decided to take a break all together from it and even avoided social media. Sometimes the body needs those breaks to rest and to truly appreciate the sport. I did get a few runs here and there but it really wasn't anything special. I ended the year with a 5K around my sister in law's neighborhood and I felt pretty good about my decision to put family first.

My race kind of crept up on me...it's this weekend!  Instead of feeling nervous about it, I am looking forward to completing this goal of mine. I never wanted this race to be a PR. I just wanted to prove to myself that I could accomplish this goal postpartum. After this race though I plan on taking a LONG break from racing. I may sign up for little runs here and there around town but that's it. I want to spend as much time with my little girl as I can and training just takes up that valuable time.
