Monica, Alexis, Xavier, Bailey (The Dog), and Nadeen (@whiskyd) holding Bailey

 What a Grrrrrreat Sunday!!!!!  I started off the day in Orlando!!  We spent the night there so I could wake up early and find the Silver Spurs Arena where they were holding the CPE Nationals!!  This is where I met the Beautiful Love muffin by the name of Bailey and her Lovely mom Nadeen ( @whiskyd )  Nadeen is one of the first Tweethearts I added to my Twitterverse!!!  She is my little Twitter “Inner Voice”!!  I NEVER know where she’s going to pop up!!!  Her tweets ALWAYS make me smile, laugh, and/or think!!!  I am extremely happy we were able to FINALLY meet!!!  She shared her life with me on May 22, 2010…. and for THAT, I am Grateful!!!!  I LOVE YOU NADEEN!!!! 

After meeting Nadeen and loving up on Bailey, we headed to Aquatica!!!  It is Sea World’s Water Park!!!!!  We have 2 year passes to both Aquatica and Sea World!!!  Such great FUN IN THE SUN!!!!!  My Highlight at Aquatica was that the life jackets snapped WITH EASE!! No more “thinking light and sucking it in!!! LOL!!! (Celebrating the small victories like one of my tweethearts always reminds me to do) Can I get a WOOT WOOT!!!!! 😉

 I had an amazing weekend!!!  It started out on Friday!  After an AWESOME day of  Feet and #FollowFridays, we headed up to Tampa to see “How To Train your Dragon”  in Imax 3D!!  This was a very cute movie!!  The ending disturbed me a bit, being a podiatrist and all, But it was very entertaining!!! (YES, I’M A BIG KID!!)   Once we left, we went down to the square (picture above).  You could hear the music blaring from 2 night clubs!!  2 songs stuck out….”Planet Rock” and “Don’t Stop Believing”  I Love them both for different reasons!!  We had the kids with us so no clubbing that night….BUT I will be going back!! 😉  Then, On Saturday, I was reminded how AMAZING  my Tweethearts are!!!  @FabFattieShan and @nomorebacon ran a 5K for Autism and made some PR times!!! WELL DONE, YOU 2!!  I was also impressed with @ShrinkingJeans!!  These Ladies AMAZE me DAILY!!!  They are in the process of Raising money while training for a half-marathon for  Team In Training!! @LissaJoy smashed an 8 mile long run, @ReallifAdv ran almost 7 miles while dealing with a foot injury and MY SHERO @Christieo ran on a #TreadmillInTheMall ALL DAY SATURDAY For 26 miles!!!!!!!

“THE FINISH LINE”
Jessica (@Jessimika28), Monica (@QTHouseOfBeauty), Me (@FitInMyHeart), and Luke (@KenpoDoc4)

   

What a WONDERFUL Valentine/MyrtleBeach5K/Girls Roadtrip/Tweet-up weekend!!!!  It started after work Thursday night 2/11/10.  Monica, Jessica, Betty (Cheerleader along for the ride) and I hit the road around 8:30 PM!  We had a 9 hour drive ahead of us.  We were ALL happy to be getting away for a little bit!!  I was EXTRA EXCITED because I was going to meet Eddie (@damanlovett), Joey (@PassionMD), CarolAnn (@ctreacy), and (@FabMissK) for the first time!!!  We had some audio books.  I had my Podcasts (@MizFitOnline @Dietgirl @TwoFitChicks… Yes I listen to them more than once…DOESNT EVERYBODY?!?)  The dive was filled with LOTS OF JOYOUS LAUGHTER AND GIRL TALK!!!  We arrived in Myrtle Beach just in time to see the sunrise from our hotel room!!

We ate some breakfast, took showers, and went to bed!!!  We needed to catch a little shut eye before we went to the expo to pick up our Race Numbers and other goodies!!!  About 4 hours into the nap…my brother called!  He and his wife denise (@sunnyd4) had already been to the expo and gotten their numbers.  They arrived in Myrtle Beach on Thursday (From knoxville, TN) They wanted to go over the marathon route (Denise was going to be running her first marathon on Saturday)  Joey also called and said they were going to be heading over to the expo around 1!  We started getting ready and made our way to the Expo!  

  

I knew that behind those walls….My friends were waiting to meet me for the first time!!!!!!   I was soooooooo excited!!!!!!  Let me just tell you….. I walked into the convention center filled with tons of people…and then heard…”MO” It was Eddie, Joey, and Kat running up to me from the left!!!  The warm tight hugs felt…LIKE HOME!!!!! Ahhhhhhhh…….

Once we left the Expo, we met up for a late lunch!! I had a blast getting to know Eddie, Joey, and Carol Ann!!!  

  

  

We went back to the room , got changed, and took a little nap!  We planned to meet at 6:30PM to warm up.  The race started at 7!  Well…. Long story short, we had the wrong address and arrived at the starting line around 6:59!!!  No stretching….No warm up…Just racing!!  Btw….I DONT RECOMMEND THAT!!! :-/  I promised people I would take it easy and I did!!!  I planned to walk the entire race (Knee injury) but I did run a 3rd of  the race.  Monica decided to stay by my side and make sure I was ok!! (She’s the best).  While we were running…she was able to catch some action shots!!!  Oh…I forgot to mention…IT STARTED TO SNOW AT EXACTLY 7:00!!! Brrrrrr……  

  

 It was hard, long, and COLD… But WE MADE IT!!!! (DETERMINATION)  

  

The above picture was taken by my sister-in-law Denise (@sunnyd4).  She drove around and snapped pictures and cheered me on at EVERY MILE MARKER!!!!  I was looking forward to returning the favor the next morning while she was running her 1st marathon BUT it was cancelled due to the snow!!! 😦  After the race…we went home to shower and change.  We ate a wonderful mexican restaurant.  Once we left, we tried to find Joey’s Beach house but the snow was making the travel unsafe for us Floridians!!  We headed back to the hotel.  We managed to take some pictures to take back to Florida to share with the family and friends!!

Then it was time to warm up a little bit in the heated pool and the lazy river…..My Knees were pleased!!! LOL  

  

Once we checked out of the hotel on Saturday, we drove the marathon route to cheer on the dedicated runners that ran the race (unofficially) It was TRULY INSPIRATIONAL!!!  We worked up an appetite with all that cheering so we stopped for some brunch!!  

Pecan and Banana Pancakes (Shared By 3)

 

 After brunch, we met up with my brother, Denise, Eddie, Joey, and Carol Ann at the mall.  We shopped for Valentine gifts, Laughed, shared, BONDED!!!!  My first 5K was physically, pretty painful BUT I wouldn’t have changed the experience FOR ANYTHING!!!!  My Family was by my side AND I made some REALLY GREAT FRIENDS!!! Cant wait until my next FITNESS/TWITTER Adventure!!!!  My Goal this year is to meet ALL OF MY FAVORITE TWEETHEARTS!!!  My #FabFattieCruise I met @FabFattieShan, @KyraTX, and @JeepJenn.  My #MyrtleBeach5K I met @Damanlovett @PassionMD and @ctreacy (Family/Friends that participated with me @QtHouseOfBeauty @Jessimika28 @Elisa_Hola @KenpoDoc4: My Brother and his wife @sunnyd4)… NEXT STOP….#Fitbloggin     “I Got A Feelin” ;-))

Sooooooo….During our lovely Thanksgiving Feast (at my brother’s house with 30+ friends and family)….Someone mentioned that Toys R Us would be opening at Midnight to kick off Black Friday ahead of the rest!!! We decided that we would get in on some of that action and knock a few of the kids gifts off of the list!! How bad could it possibly be….right?!? WRONG!!!! I think ALL of Knoxville, Tennessee was trying to cram into that one little store at midnight!!!! People were fighting, and cursing, and just being….DOWN RIGHT UGLY!!!! Did they forget the REASON FOR THE SEASON?!?!? Needless to say….We RAN out of that zoo only 10 minutes after entering!!!! Now that I’m All rested and Mentally Prepared…..We are gonna go GIVE IT ANOTHER SHOT!!! I pray, This time….IT WILL BE BETTER!!! I will Check In Later For The Final Results!!!

HAPPY BLACK FRIDAY!!!!

Love Ya Lots!!!
