Another one

Ran another half marathon today with the sisters.
I improved my time by 11 minutes.
I'm sore:-(
The run was awesome though. It was London's Run. London was a little girl who died of cancer. Runners gathered today to run in her honor. I might have cried a time or two.
Along the run they had signs of other kids with cancer that said,
"Don't give up"
"Running is easy, cancer is hard"
"Don't stop"
"Keep fighting."
Along with their picture.
So amazing.
I am so blessed.

Yuma Marathon and Half Marathon 2010

My Grandpa Reg died this past September and while the family was in town we had this idea to all run a marathon and half marathon in January (his birthday) to honor him. The run was in Yuma where my aunt johnell and uncle dan live. It was Yumas 1st marathon and it was AWESOME! Family came from Mesa, California and Washington to run or just show support. It was an amazing experience running with my sisters, aunts, uncles dad and cousins. Along the run my aunts both told stories I had never heard about my grandpa Reg. He was truly a life saver. He was the starter of the LDS acholics anonymous program called A.D.A.M. He saved countless lifes and was a recovering acholic himself. By his example other people found hope and decided to come clean. I felt so blessed to be able to be with family and come together to do this together in honor of our grandpa, Dad, friend and example. My dad, unlce Dan and our friend brian sharp all ran the full marathon! My two sisters sarah and bekah, my 2 aunts, pam and johnell, cousins kevin and matt, uncle steven and myself all ran the half marathon. It was so awesome! I have never been a runner! the most i ever ran before trainig for this was seriously 2 miles but I can now say I am a half marathon runner! I ran 13 miles yesterday!! It is such a feeling of accomplishment. I never thought I would do something like this. My time was 2 hours, 45 minutes and 59 seconds! Under 3 hours. I ran the whole thing and made my goal. Thanks to my sister bekah and aunt johnell I didnt have to finish alone and they helped push me along and believe in myself. I am so greatful for my family and am so proud of eveyone who ran!! WE KILLED IT!!!! Now on to the next run!!!!
Sorry these pictures start from the end of the race. I dont want to move them all around. ;-(

So many things!

Wow its been a long time. Where to start? Well real quick, Christmas was great! Love having 2 families! Here are the Randall girls on Christmas eve in our jammies. Brett loved his Dewalt tool set and I have already had him put them to good use with what you will see below....
This week I have been going crazy with painting and sanding! Brett and I are house sitting starting the beginning of February to who knows when so I have been picking up some old furniture at thrift stores and making them Emily approved. I have had the bench forever but never painted or put fabric on it, now I had a reason to so I painted it black and Brett and I picked out the fabric and reupholstered it. Its fab I know. The little end table, oh don't worry it was 5 bucks, it use to be forest green... real nice, but I had my own idea and painted it the same color and moj pojed scrap book paper on top, I like it. Oh and that book... THE BEST!
Here is Brett doin work son! He is amazing and I love that we were able to do it all together! This is him cutting base boards for our dresser, what I am madly in love with right now...
Found this beauty at Mesa Thrift for..... 14 bucks! Holla! ya it is so nast and smelt like pee pee but when I saw it, it was love at first site! I called Brett and had him come look at itI than convinced him I had a vision and could make it B-E-A-UTIFUL! He believed in me!
Notice the very bottom of it, up close you can see it had some water damage and was just nasty so I had the bright idea of buying pretty baseboard and wrapping it around the whole thing to hide the ugly mess! Brett made perfect beautiful cuts and nailed them in for me than I started my job of painting, first primed it becasue its not even real wood really, it has like plastic wrapping around it, not the most fun to paint but who cares its beautiful now!
Now check out the bottom if it! So sick huh??!?!! Brett and I love it!
And the finsished product!!! Its beautiful!! We will use it as a T.V. stand and today at Mesa thrift we found a coffee table that started out just as ugly but now painted black is lovely and looks like it was meant for this piece! Sorry no pics, its drying as I type, nut it has the same cool design on the top of it that this has on the front! PERFECT!
On another note I got a job at Wells Fargo!! yay!! I will also be starting school on Tuesday with some pretty tough and no fun classes... ugh! Brett is studying for the LSAT and will be taking that on February 7th. Saturday the 23rd I will be running a half marathon in Yuma with my family in honor of my Grandpa Reg who passed away this past year. I'm nervous and excited to have it over with! Hopefully I wont be crawling by the end of it! And last but not least our spread in Arizona Bride Spring Summer issue is now in stores, and well, we look gahood!! Just kidding, but seriously.... any who were excited for all the new changes and things coming our way!
