Here is a recap of the weekend... one I will always remember and hold dear to my heart.
I didn't think I would be able to do this half - I thought I would have to wait until longer after James was born, but with lots of support and encouragement from family and friends I did it! I couldn't have done it without the help of a handful of people I'd like to extend some thanks to:
Last year's half marathoners: Y'all motivated me more than you will know! Just seeing the sense of accomplishment after last year's race gave me the mojo to do it. Thank you all! (Jimmy, Caro, Carrie, Brian, Ray & Tom). Especially Caro and Carrie who motivated me along my training... Thanks gals!
Mary Sims: Every long run she'd motivate me with encouraging texts and motivation. :)
Mom & Dad: Not only did they keep James all weekend long for the race -- they also helped in keeping him while I needed to run during the week (especially the long runs). Also, my dad has always been a big runner, and his motivation to "run around the world" inspired me. If it weren't for his running he wouldn't have caught his heart issue which saved him from having a heart attack, so that inspired me lots.
Coach Jimmy: The first person to have more faith in me than I thought possible, Jimbo! If it weren't for his coaching, motivation and support I definitely would not have been able to do it. He was so encouraging the whole way! Thanks to the best hubbie and daddy :)
Baby James: Your sweet face helped me make it across the finish line. Those 13.1 miles were for you, my little bundle of love!

But did he stop there? Noooo....
He did dishes, folded laundry, took James to REI and bought me some running clothes for the big race this weekend (see photo)...
So basically I got home to a cleaner house with clean clothes, clean dishes, a little serci (sp?) and a sleeping baby. Man... Pretty awesome night if I do say so myself.
Thanks Jimmy for being so incredibly awesome! As we always say.... TEAM LARSON!
Love you so very much!

We started the month off with a bang! On Thursday, December 1, James and I packed up and headed to see Auntie Fannie and Uncle David (Jimmy was spending the entire week in Orlando for manager training). After we put the little guy to sleep we watched all the Twighlight movies (yes, we are almost 30 years old... so what?!). Then on Friday we just spent time together and chillaxed until night time when we got James all dolled up for PJ's with Santa, the Columbia Junior League's annual fundraiser.
Although James didn't get to tell Santa what he wanted (the line was INSANE) we got to see cousins Hamilton and Zan, and a lot of Columbia friends I hadn't seen in forever!
Here are some photos from the event:
We capped the evening off with dinner and wine at Fran and David's... It was a lot of fun because we got to catch up with Miss Lala and her beau. Then, Jimmy got to Fran's around 9pm, which was so nice (it's hard when he is away for an entire week!).
Happy holidays everyone!!
