Can't let there only be one post for February

I can't believe that it will be March tomorrow, it seems like Christmas was just two weeks ago... man, time flies when you are old. I remember when we were little that a school year took forever, but now the years just fly by, man are we getting old.

We have been staying pretty busy lately. We had some great dinners with our friends. We ran the last of our Winter Series races, I did a 10K and Mikey did a 20K. Maybe we will be ready for our Half/Full Marathons in May at this rate! A short note about the race, it was windy. Really windy. Wind tunnel windy. At times we'd be running full speed ahead, only to barely move at all. Fortunately it wasn't snowing and it wasn't really cold, so I guess we'll take it. Here is a picture of Mikey finishing his 20K.

Then this last weekend we did go to dinner in Denver for their Restaurant Week called $52.80. It is pretty neat thing where a bunch (over 100) nice restaurants in Denver and surrounding areas offer a special menu for 52.80 (get it, 5280 feet!) per couple. We went to an Italian restaurant and had a great time and some pretty good food. It might have been really good food, except that our reservation wasn't until 8:30, which meant we got the main course over an hour later and didn't eat dessert until about 10:00. Did I mention that we are old now? Anyway, I snapped a picture of our dinner and then had one of Mikey and I taken! Hopefully we'll write more in March!

Time Flies

Well, It has been what seems like a month since we wrote a blog, sorry, just not much has been going on. We have just been passing colds back and forth and running in the snow and working. Being sick has really taken a toll on our so called training, we both have not been running nearly as much as we were a few weeks ago. It is a little scary to think we are both not nearly ready for our races, but it is a good thing that we have two more months to get there. Here is a picture from the last race we ran, which was just kind of horrible. There was anywhere from 3 to 10 inches of snow on the trail at all times!

Other than all that stuff, we have just been working and hanging out with friends and family. We have had a few snow storms in the last few weeks, nothing super horrible, but there was an accident on our street where someone hit an electric box so we didn't have power for about two hours. And the cop even blocked off the little hill the suv slid down. It was a lot of excitement for us during all the cold snow.

We did make some homemade granola bars, we have to keep up our hippy-ness. They turned out pretty well, I especially like our cherry, white chocolate, almond granola bars. And for Valentine's Day we made some delicious chicken pasta by Giada. It was great.

We also have been trying to get stuff together for our trip to Europe!! We can't wait!! We have all the reservations done and a good list of things we want to do and see, but we are just waiting for it to actually get here!
