Life lately and a cancelled race

Long time no see!

 I am 2 months into my new job (time flies!), and this week I'll be getting new hours. No more Saturday's, and no more 10 hour days. I'll now be working 'normal people' hours, and I am so happy.
 I still love my job. I work in a bank call center, and for some reason they have my cubicle in the boys section. Ha!
 But I have been very thankful for that. They are great guys, they are funny, love to pick on me, and they keep me entertained for sure. All of my coworkers are just amazing. I have never worked with better people. When you talk to some crazy, rude people on the phone, who have no business even owning a checking account, having great coworkers to take your mind off them is a lifesaver.

This girl, my precious niece, is doing amazing! She had an MRI last week, and there is NO evidence of tumor recurrence in Kristin's body. God is so good.
 Her chemo will be done in the Spring and we plan on going back to Chicago to visit the friends we made at the Ronald McDonald House.


I've signed up for quite a few races next year. I'm going to be doing lots of traveling! I decided next year I don't want to repeat many races, I want to do new ones. I do have 3 repeats, but the rest will be races I've never done.

I've also been reading this book lately. It's hard to put down!
Why am I reading such a morbid book?
Because my friend Kristy and I are planning a trip to hike the Grand Canyon rim to rim!
It's going to be very intense and tough, which makes me even more excited. We'll do it in 2 days, around 25 miles each day.
The book is really not morbid, it's just good info on things for hikers to be aware of.
More to come!

Yesterday I was supposed to run my last half of the year, the Indy Santa Hustle. But they cancelled it because temps were supposed to be 0. I was really glad they cancelled it, that way I didn't feel as guilty about not showing up. :)
 Cold weather and Ido not get along. I joined Planet Fitness, so have been doing all of my running indoors lately.
Since I didn't get to wear my Christmas shirt and bondi band to the race, I wore it to the gym instead.
Isn't the shirt adorable?? I got it here.

Until next time!

Anyone want to hike Grand Canyon with us?
Are you ready for Christmas?
