One on my 2012 goals is to run a half marathon each month. I felt I needed to do my first sooner rather than later with a racing half marathon on February 4th. So I confirmed dear hubby was going to be off tomorrow and had plans of running my half then with some or all of it with him. Last night that plan vanished as he announced he made plans to go SCUBA diving with son #1. Okay, annoyed but I totally understand. I turned to darling daughter and asked her how a couple of hours at the Kids' Club sounded. She wasn't overly enthusiastic but she didn't run away screaming either.
So we got up early, ate some Cheerios, and headed out the door to start our day....at the gym. And here is my eager companion.

And with that said, I ran 13.11 miles today and have officially logged my first 12 in 12 half marathons! I had to push the end, which is good training in some regards, because I was running out of time due to the Kids' Club maximum stay. Really, how much daycare do you think you can get for $4.17?
It was a great run and I am glad I got it done. Although, if I knew dear hubby's plans earlier I would have ran it yesterday so I could have earned some more HBBC points. Oh the irony of life!
Today I am grateful for:
