Great Memorial Day! Dinner with the homies and registered for Disney Half Marathon =)

Memorial Day ended nicely with Kim and Corey hosting dinner for me, the mister, Yahpee & Mr.Yahpee at their house. Kim has become such a good cook, I have to give credit where credit is due. Steaks and veggies, and CAKE! I even got birthday candles! I love my friends, I'm so grateful.

Kim is always cheesing for the camera:


Kim, me and Aline (more commonly known as Yahpee):


Our awesome hosts. Going to their place feels like being at home - I love that they moved 5 minutes away!


Aline and Matt are so cute and always fun company, without fail:


The Mister and I:


Sometimes I get sad that I can't be with my family on holidays, but times like tonight help me remember that I DO have family here in OC. Only difference is, we're just not blood related, and that's just a minor technicality. =)

UPDATE ON DISNEY HALF MARATHON ("Halfie")

All that yappin and no action from me for the past few weeks regarding the Disney Half Marathon. But today I'm $107 poorer and one step closer to another road race - I am officially REGISTERED!
I linked my training calendar at the top of my blog if you need any guidance on training for it if you're doing the race too.

Finally a reason to get out of my fitness slump!

Day 14 of GET FIT PLAN - 20 minutes biking and 10 measly minutes of lower body resistance training. 186 calories burned. Weight = +3 pounds since Day 1. Cut me!

Here's to another road race! Kim is registered and Claire and Aline and Joy are in for it as well. Still waiting on word from Andrea/USCgirl and Cat but hopefully they'll bite. Jessica can't do it this time, it won't be the same without her but we'll always have our past races to remember.

Look at the goodies we get if we finish the race, of course 2008's would be modified (squealing):


Mickey and Minnie were always a little creepy looking to me, but hopefully they'll be there cheering the runners on:


The START line of any race is so exciting - adrenaline rush!


Me in training (wishful thinking):

Can't wait to run - it'll be my first long race in awhile. Please don't kick up too much dirt as you speed off and leave me in the dust. ;)
