Day 2 of captivity

It's day 2 of my captivity. The day was spent with mostly no power, heat or hot water. My captors nagged me relentlessly. I have not had a moment peace. I have not bathed. My cell is filthy with toys and crushed up goldfish. OH THE HUMANITY!
 Oh sweet lord, the power is back. Wiggles! save me!
Hubby back in 2 more days. Just have to make it 2. More. Days. Oldest goes to school tomorrow. that should give me the chance i need to make a break for it.
 Ok, again, a bit melodramatic. but Oh. Em. kids have been ridiculous today, and having no power did not help my patience level. So many things I had to do today, so far the only thing i've now accomplished since the power came back was fill and start the dishwasher. It's 4:30 pm. I'm guessing other than feeding and bathing everyone, not much else will be accomplished.
 Anyway, 2 more days until I will be able to run again. I'm not sure i'm going to make it!

The Journey Begins!

Ok, that sounds so melodramatic. And you will quickly see that I am NOT a writer. I just want to keep track of my progress and fund raising (heh!) for our trip to Disney World in 2014 so I can run in the Disney Princess Half Marathon, and we can have some family fun!
 So, quick over view. I started running around march of 2012. By the end of 2012 I had lost 20 pounds. And I had become obsessed with running. However, not nearly as obsessed as I became with running the Princess HM. I'm not sure when I first learned about the Disney races, but for some reason it suddenly hit me in February 2013 (just after we got back from our 6 weeks in Australia) I HAD TO DO THIS RACE! Ask my husband, he will confirm that I am, in fact, obsessed. 
 The 2013 Princess was this past weekend. So that puts us exactly one year out. And while fundraising and logistic planning has begun, my run training has kind of died thanks to the ridiculous amount of snow/ice/rain/slush/crap that has been on the roads lately. If for some reason someone who doesn't know me actually reads this, I don't live where there are nice running/walking trails or side walks or even break down lanes. I take my life into my own hands running on these roads on the best of days. I do have a treadmill that I am going to break down and use. But now, hubby is away for work. When he gets back, it is ON LIKE DONKEY KONG! I have decided I want into corral A or B, so i need to bust my butt to get into HM shape by the end of june so I can hopefully run the Bands On The Run Half Marathon in Lewiston and get a corral qualifying time.
 So, there that is in a nutshell.
