New head gear!

I am really starting to get excited about my new running hobby! I know, it is not considered a "hobby" but for me it almost has to be! I research it, buy all sorts of fun equipment for it and I am totally becoming obsessed! Now now it was just a week ago I was saying that I hated running!Now it is something I look forward too. I love the way I feel during and after running and I am really excited to go to a few races!

However, I must get up on my soap box and complain for just a minute! Damn you snow gods! What is it that I have done to you! Please I beg of you I will do almost anything to un-do my wrong doings! I can no longer handle any more snow and as I type we are currently getting dumped on with 15-20 inches in the forecast, on top of the 24-28 we got this past weekend! I feel like we need to go ahead and re-name Maryland something like North Dakota!

Ok off the soap box, I have not been able to run since FRIDAY!!! With so much snow on the ground, and now it is ice underneath and 10 foot snow piles on each side of the road it makes for unsafe conditions. I have however been trying a few new things. We have on-demand exercise through our cable company, so I decided to browse. I stumbled upon the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders boot camp, haha laugh if you want it is ok I did too, but oh my goodness it was a great workout! and serious motivation looking at the cheerleaders I would love to have their rippling abs!!

I also have done Jillian Michels Shred for the last two days, and she is a tough chick!!! She is evil and says things like "if I can get 400 pound people to do this, then you can do it too, too bad if it hurts!! ahhh I wanted to yell at her! But I felt great after wards. I also came back for more so I guess I don't dislike her that much!

Yesterday my new Jacket arrived in the mail!!!! Yeah can't wait to give it a try, and today the Bondi Bands arrived! I ordered some for me and one for each of my girls! Look at how cute they are (the girls anyway!)

This is my oldest totally happy to pose and wear her new head gear!!

My little one, she is not so fond of her new head gear!

and all three of us squished together for a photo op! I love that mine says "run like a mother"!

Alright, well I wanted to thank all of you who responded to my shoe post, I will take the time to find a running store in the next couple of days and visit it! I hope to be around the blogsphere in the next couple of days hoping we don't loose power and all! Take care and I hope it is warm where you are!
