A Quickie!

I didn't really have anything to write about today until I checked the website for the 5k that I ran on Saturday......... If you remember I said that there was a glitch in the timing and finishing for my age group and the age group below me, not sure how that can be if it is chip timed, but anyway.....I got 3rd in my age group and my time was 26:45!!!! To say I am happy is an understatement!!! I placed 52 overall with 198 total runners!

My Family

A couple of weeks ago we had family pictures made.  Maddie was 1 when we had our last professional family pictures taken.  Chris is not the poser, cheesy type of guy!!! He usually growls when he sees me pull out my camera and then he really roars when he sees me point it at him!  I have told him that  he will be so glad that I did one of these days like this time:

Chris and his Grandaddy at his 95th birthday party!
He wasn't too bad on this day though. The photographer came to us, so we didn't have to travel anywhere and I guess he kind of felt like he was on his own turf!

Whatta Weekend!

What a weekend indeed!!!! It was wayyyy to short! Lets get down to business!

Saturday I had a 5K; I started out feeling really good, my legs seemed really fast, the course was great, I had ran it before, and everything was going really smooth. I was looking for a PR and as I looked at my Garmin we were at 2.75 miles and a really good PR was within sight!  I was wanting a 25 minute, didn't care if it was 25:59 as long as it was in the 25 minute range.  The last 2 tenths I was getting really fatigued, and I forgot all about an incline right at the finish line and I could not go any harder.  My legs felt heavy and my breathing was terrible.  I had run the hardest I ever had the half mile prior to finishing.  I still finished with a PR but only by 3 seconds. 26:46, was what my Garmin said, however I think it might have been a few seconds less officially, the time was chipped time and the results has not been posted yet.  Jessica had a PR as well.

However the big PR person was my Momma!!! She always registers as a runner so that she can walk some.  She finished with a time of 39:39!!!!!! Her very first 5k was around 50 minutes, so she has improved tremendously!!!

 We are not sure how we finished overall or in our age groups, there was a problem with the results and we stood in the freezing wind for over an hour to find out the results and still didn't find out anything, so hopefully we will this week!

Saturday night we went to a friends birthday party and had a really good time.  Saw some friends that I hadn't seen in a while.

Sunday was a lazy day!  The kids had stayed all night with the grandparents, Chris went golfing and I took a nap!!! And man it was a good one.  Then Jessica and I decided we would go on a good long run, "til the sun goes down" as she said. And that we did, we ran 8 miles and it felt really good. I figured I would be sore this morning, but I wasn't. I used some Biofreeze on my knees last night and all is well today. However I think I am gonna take today off and hit it tomorrow.

The kids played around in the woods with my parents and she sent me these cute pictures!

The 3 amigos! Maddie, Carter and my niece Riley Jo

Pork Chop Supreme

When I was little, this was always my favorite dish.  On my birthday my Mom always knew what to fix for my birthday supper: Pork Chop Supreme, mashed potatoes, cream style corn!!! Along with a Jell-o cake with no icing!!!! I have been craving Pork Chops forever now. I had recently told my Mom that I was going to buy some and have her make me the dish.  But Wednesday night I took the plunge and made them myself! Ya see I am about a 10 meal cooker, I don't curve to much from my comfort zone! 

My Chops all floured up, waiting for the grease to get hot! I am a very messy cook!!!

Frying away!!!! Paula Deen would be proud!!! Not so sure about my arteries!

In the baking dish, covered with mushroom soup and sliced onions, ready to bake for about 20-25 minutes!
Pure home style cooking!!!

This is a plate that sits on my counter in my kitchen, just thought it was appropriate!!
I have to say they were very tasty, and I had some left overs to take to work the next day and they were even better the second day!!!  So Momma I brought my A-game to the kitchen, and I have to say I can give you a run for your money on the Chops!!!!

Maybe you will be seeing more new recipes in the future! I love to print them out and the idea of cooking them, I just hardly ever do it!!! Ashlee knows all to well about this!!

Good thing I am getting ready to start a 12 week weigh in challenge!!! The Holiday Hoo-Rah!!! More to come on that!!!!!


A Little Behind

Can you say TGIF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I am way behind in blogging!!! It is has been really busy in my neck of the woods.   Don't have much time today, but I just wanted to drop in and say HI and happy Friday to you!!!!

I have a 5K in the morning, super pumped about it! I have ran this course before (actually the same course as my first 5K) and it is really a good course so hoping for a PR!!! I will be back on Monday with the results!!!! Until then have a great weekend!!

This weekend was pretty low key, which is always a good thing. On Saturday Chris, Carter and I rode the Ranger all day with some friends. Got to sling some mud, we got a little muddy, then had Pizza Hut for supper!!! Always a good thing when I don't have to cook! Maddie stayed with my Mom on Saturday. Got a text from her saying that Maddie was trying on a PINK brop, aka bra!!!!! I told her that her "bobbies" wasn't big enough!!!!!! Oh lord, 4 going on 16!!!!!

Sunday was very low key, went to church, then came home and did some laundry picked up the house and watched Lizard Lick Towing off and on all day!!!!

Pictures from Saturday!
 Happy Monday everyone!!!!

Carter and I

We detoured to the fairgrounds where a mud run had just been the night the before and Chris had to ride in the back through the mud, he jumped out and Adam took off!!!
