Hello Brooks

On Saturday Jeff and I went to Snails Pace in Brea. After a quick jog in a pair of nuetral shoes, the sales associate declared I severly overpronate, so much that my knees turn in! She came out with 3 different pairs of shoes and after a few trial jogs in the store, I'm the owner of a new pair of Brooks Addiction 9's. Not the most attractive shoe but I have high hopes of it correcting my stride. Comparing it to the shoes I was running on before, my old Adidas were all wrong for me. No control at all, no wonder the bad knees. Cross your fingers, Jeff and I are running tomorrow!

Chloe's First Kill

After months and months of continuous hunting, long hours of patience and perserverance, Chloe has caught her first zebra. Mommy & Daddy are so proud.

So I've been running on my old running shoes from circa 2003. They are pretty worn down but I figured that I would only be running in them until September and would buy new ones after the 5k. That was my idea until this week. I'd been getting regular shin splints for the last two weeks but this week, my knees are screaming at me. Going to the Snail's Pace on Saturday! Hopefully I'll find a pair that I and my knees love. :)

Week 2

This is the end of week 2 for our 5k training. Keep your laughs to yourself, yes I have to "train" for a 5k. :) I did my second run by myself this morning and it wasn't so bad. I prefer running in the morning, before the sun has heated up the pavement and it's 80 degrees out. Even if the coyotes are still roaming around at 8:30am. I'm running/walking about a 15.18 mile which is slooow but everyone has to start somewhere right?

Happy 4th!

Happy 4th of July everyone! Our plan for today is to go down to Aunt Bernice's and Uncle Tim's for a BBQ and then to my dad's for fireworks once it's dark.

The pictures below are actually from the day before but for some reason I have no pics...I think Shannon took them all. The last pic is hilarious even if it is blurry. At that point, Kalea had decided she had enough of taking pictures. Can you just imagine the meltdown that ensued after?
