No excuses...

Well my holiday break has ended and I am now back at work after having 2 weeks off. The perks of a job in education. The last days of vacation were awesome because my husband bought me a treadmill for Christmas.  I ended up with a sweet commercial grade treadmill as my husband really researched and actually knows a lot about this kind of stuff. We ended up getting a TRUE treadmill that had been used at a gym at one point. It's very durable and a BEAST! I LOVE it!!! I actually have wanted one for a long time. I now have no excuses to get my runs in, which is OK with me.

The Treadmills....

Loaded up!

In the garage...but now it's set up in the basement...it weighs 396 lbs!!! I didn't have to carry it down there thanks goodness!!!

New Years Day 3 hr run

The Houston marathon is 2 weeks out and I ran 3 hours on New years day (almost 20). I ran on a trail so it was a little slower than road but am feeling good for the race with minimal training.


  1. How awesome that you got a great new TM for Christmas! 2 weeks until the marathon - very exciting!

  2. Congrats on the treadmill! That is a great present. Congrats on your run! I always enjoy a great trail run.

  3. Exciting about the treadmill! Good job husband! Doing 20 on trails is more like 25 on road :) Enjoy the taper!
