Training for the 4th of July

I have a new goal that I am aiming to reach on the 4th of July;
Mike and I are planning to run "The Peachtree" Race in downtown Atlanta on the 4th of July! It is 5 mile race! I am running on the treadmill 3-4 times a week and do 1 & 1/2 miles in 20 minutes! So hopefully, come early spring I will be close to the goal! I have never run a race before, and really look forward to it! We will be joining our good friends Samantha and Kendall! I know Samantha is looking forward to running it for the 3rd year in a row! Also, she will have just had their first baby 2 months prior...so it is her goal to be in it following birth! Being a "stay at home mom", I am now able to do some things for myself now that I never did when I was teaching! The most challenging part about training is just trying to figure out how long Parker will actually sleep and getting the running in~ I will keep you posted on this goal. We have to sign up for the race immediately when it comes out in the paper because so many people apply each year! If you don't do it right away, you won't get a number! Fingers crossed and aiming high!
Parker's update:
He is 12 weeks old!


Here is a picture I love...Abbey protecting Parker while he was taking a little nap on Sunday afternoon! Abbey has really accepted Parker, but she is still trying to figure out what great "food" item is caught in his mouth at times! (Translated, she found a pacifier on the floor one night, and she brought it up to Mike! We were laughing so hard! She really wanted to know what to do with it!)

Blessings to you all,
Jenn
