Merry Freakin Christmas!!!!!!!!! Whoop Whoop!!!!

I love Christmas Eve.  Pry more than I love Christmas day!  I feel like I'm ahead of the game this year which completely scares the crap out of me.  I keep wondering......Who the hell's present did I forget to buy???!!!!  That's my worst fear.  Getting somewhere and realizing that I forgot someone.  Ughhh.......I would totally feel like an ass and make up some lame excuse that I forgot to grab it from under our tree at home and la di da......I could say that one of the army guys is holding it hostage......
Or, I could just tell them I forgot cause I'm losing my mind and going completely insane!!  :)  I'm pretty certain I got everyone covered this year, and also certain that I have the EXACT same number of presents for each of the kids.  Cause heaven forbid one should have one more than the other.  The 5 year old will count them.  Guaranteed. 

I'm going to finish up all the baking/cooking I can before tomorrow's crew gets to my house.  It's going to be kind of a quiet day.  Only 14 of us.  My husband of course thinks that's a huge number but we have a HUGE family and the norm is around 25.   We're kind of like that show "My Big Fat Greek Wedding".  Only we aren't Greek!!  But we're LOUD and funny as shit.  We tend to get in everyone else's business and we have a wonderful time!! 

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and get everything you wanted!  I don't even know what I wanted so I'll be happy as shit no matter what!!  I plan on eating and drinking ALOT!  So, before we head to the parents today I plan on getting in that 4 mile run if it kills me.  I am going to NEED it.

A few of my favorite running quotes........

I love motivational quotes, pictures, sayings.  They're good for the soul and make me feel like I can accomplish what I set out to do.  I used some when the volleyball season started this year and it really helped the girls see they can accomplish what they set out to do.  Here are some of my favorites!!

I love this one!!  People constantly tell me they have no time for exercise.  They assume since I am a stay at home mom that I sit around all day with hours of free time.  NOT.  I know alot of people who are really busy that still find time to exercise!!

Just found this one today!  Love it and it will be on my fridge soon!

Or a bigger one.......which I think is happening to me.  :(

The "for the rest of your life" kinda scared me at first.  :)  But it's the truth.  If you want it you have to work for it!

I tell myself this when I want to quit.

I've started and now I know that I won't quit!  I love running and I love how it makes me feel!

Why I run......

I've been reading these really great blogs about why people run.  What keeps them motivated to get out there every day and just run.  I'm relatively new to all this running business, but after those first "great" accomplishments (running 3 miles without passing out/stopping/dying), I really "get it".  I'm not gonna lie.  I used to wonder why everyone that ran talked about it all the time.  I mean really????  Do we care about your time, distance, pace etc.  Now I'm that annoying person that talks about running.  How far I've gone, have to go, and how fast I was.  Or slow in my case, but who's keeping track!  I finally GET IT!!  It's addicting.  That feeling of pure accomplishment (or passing the "fast" beotch at the race) is the greatest in the world!

So, here is why I run.  Some are why I started running in the first place.  Others are why I will continue to be a runner from here on out.

Ode to the running shoe.......

Size 11.  And I'm not referring to my pant size.  That's my ginormous shoe size.  Who cares, you say!  I care.  I'm 5'3".  Yeah, you read that right.  I wear a size 11 shoe have a head the size of a watermelon and nothing in between stretched far enough to be called tall.  When my husband and I were dating, my future MIL asked me why I was wearing his shoes.  And she wasn't joking.  Not only are my feet huge, they are flat as a pancake.  I'm also bow legged and pigeon toed.  Major problem.  I was so bow legged when I was little my parents had to put Forest Gump braces on my legs at night to sleep.  Seriously.  And "f" off for laughing!!!!!   I have a hell of a time finding the right shoes.  Nothing was different when I began the search for the "perfect" running shoe.

We live on a ranch 21 miles from the closest town and 100 miles from a Walmart.  I rarely run on pavement.  This is my running "track" most days and while I love …
