One Flu Over the Cuckoo's Nest

I was excited to run 15 miles last weekend (I really was), but I was attacked with the stomach flu for two days.  I still have a really sensitive stomach.  I have been eating really bland things like rice, veggies, oatmeal, bread, crackers.  I also don't have much of an appetite...I know, right?  Bonus!

Seriously, I'm sure my appetite will come back as I start running more.  I did a 3 mile yesterday and felt pretty good.  It had been a while since I ran, so I spent a while picking out the perfect running outfit.  Too bad you can't see my leg warmers in the picture, cuz I was wearing them.  I couldn't find my wool socks and there's always that slight gap between my socks and where my zipper will stay closed around my ankles and the leg warmers keep my ankles nice and toasty.  And yes, I also ran with my hair down like a superstar.  
I actually PR'd my 5k time with a 33:50 (11:04, 11:11, 10:37).  My best was a 34:20 or something like that.  I love that I'm getting faster!

My intentions were to do 8 today, but due to procrastination it was pretty late when I got back from running errands so I went for a short walk instead.

Last month I made a goal of 100 miles for the month.  This includes walking as well as running.  I am only 20 miles from that goal and I have three days to do it.  Noooo problem...I hope.

I've really been a crocheting machine lately.  I made my dad and brothers camouflage hats for Christmas.  They love them.  I am working on Kevin's now per his request.

I found the pattern here after searching on Pinterest.  You start at the top, which I liked.  It makes it easier to make it the length and width you want.  So many of the patterns start with the bottom, which I find weird.

I am finally reading again, too.  I go in spurts.  I guess I really didn't have time with the holidays and working constantly.  I found an author I read before, Laura Levine.  She writes these funny mysteries where the main character is named Jaine Austen, her mom is obsessed with the home shopping channel, and she has a demanding cat.  What's not to like?  The problem is that our library only has a couple of her books, so I have to wait for them to get in others that I requested.

I need to start thinking about some 2013 goals.

What are your goals for the upcoming year?
