Apologies, when we decided to start this blog, we had grand aspirations. We’d be regularly updating you on all our many adventures. However, life gets in the way. Between work, running, and having a blended family, we don’t get much free time for blogging. We’re going to try and change that.
Birthdays, 2 weeks apart from one another!
We’ve been up to a lot recently. We’ve had a ton of birthday celebrations for the kiddos. We’ve been trying to prepare for our wedding at the Phoenix Marathon. And prepare for our Dallas reception. That said, we have made some headway…Did you see our fancy marriage license on our Instagram?
We’re very excited for it all! We’ve got some friends and family coming to the event. Scott’s parents are going to fly in for it and our friends Laura and Ray! Marsha’s long time BBM now iMessage turned friend Nikki and her husband coming in from Cali. Plus a few others. And, Scott’s cousin even got ordained so she could perform the ceremony!
We’re also going to have some social media friendzies there too. Can’t wait to meet longtime blog bud A Fast Paced Life. We just found out our dino-loving Dallas dude Carlos the Runner will be there. And of course, our Best Man and Woman, Helly on the Run and her hubby Ben will be on hand, and also said their run group is going to be there waiting on us too!
We hope to have some more surprises too, but we need to keep those cats in their bags until we can confirm them. Stay tuuuuuuunnnneeeeeddddd!
And as for the Dallas reception, we just keep hearing better and better news. We are truly overwhelmed by the response we have gotten from friends and family. All the people who are flying in from around the States – you can’t imagine how touched we are.
Shout out to y’all out of towners coming to Texas!
We weren’t expecting anyone to be able to come, so we truly feel loved and honored. We can’t wait to see all of you!
That all said, as far as the marathon goes…we are not in any sort of racing shape. Scott has been sidelined most of the year with a stress fracture in his foot. And Marsha has been battling hamstring issues. But we’re doing the best we can to get ready on limited time. We were able to run 14 miles this past Saturday, so that gives us some hope, somewhat. We have no time goal, we just want to finish and have fun along the way. Maybe by race day we won’t be in race shape, but hopefully we won’t be pear shaped either…somewhere in between would be nice.
Besides us, we have several friends like Helly, Ben, Hector, Ray, etc. who are going to be trying to BQ the race. Man, that would be sweet if they all did. Like we said, It’s Going Down In Phoenix!
Oh Em Gee, you need to see our racing outfits. We found these online from Red Shirt Running online and they were able to customize and get them to us lickity split. Perfect, amirite?
OH, and we keep forgetting…people keep asking us where we’re registered. We haven’t actually registered anywhere. We’re at a point in life where we want to minimize, we don’t really have space/use for random stuff. That said, we do enjoy tequila – so a gift card to Total Wine would be boss. We also LOVE getting hand crafted furniture from the UH-MAZE-ING folks at Unique Wood Furniture. We have a couple pieces from them, and they’re just the best! So any gift card things to them would be dope. And of course, we always need groceries, so Target, Kroger, etc. gift cards are radical. We’ll also accept race entries 🙂 But in the end, all we really want is to see your smiling faces.
But we need some help y’all – WE NEED A HASHTAG! We know y’all are a creative lot, can you help us out with suggestions? If we like yours, we may even send you a thank you gift, wink wink.
OK, this post is all over the map. We hope you can navigate it better than Dora the Explorer and make some sense of it. Maybe we should wrap it up before your brain marbles get corfused. Hopefully after this, we’ll be posting more regularly as to avoid random brain dumps like this.
OK, it’s you’re turn. Help us with a hashtag…and…GO!
