Sliding into the New Year

Tall Grandma treated us all to a FUN trip to Great Wolf Lodge...pictures soon.. Tall Sister and Tall Grandma were AWESOME babysitters, letting Muscle Man and I play like kids.. THANK YOU!! We went on EVERYTHING!! Yes even the up to 4 person Tornado with a gut losing DROP into a half pike style area.. CRAZY!! I felt like I was in the X-Games.. The kids had a blast at the Water Park. Little Stud #1 was reunited with his Purple water slide he LOVED at age 2+ and Little Stud #2 had a Zen like relationship with the water fountains near the wave pool.. He was FUNNY, praying hands, then binocular hands, then talking to the water...not sure what he was up to.. a lady nearby thought he was doing Yoga, hmmmm. We had a SWEET room with a kids bunkstyle area, our little buddy was so sleepy at the end of day 1 he crashed instantly..

Needless to say I did not take too many photos, was having too much fun.. I am TIRED!! I should have counted how many steps it was with each trip UP to the slides. We got a GOOD workout.. back to running tomorrow, I have a 12K to get in before the new year.

  • Have you reached your 1,000+++ miles?? Be sure to email me your address if you would like a bumper sticker..
  • What are your GOALS for 2010? I will be taking a little different approach this year..details soon...

HAPPY TUESDAY!

hi! I'm a newer follower and you inspired me to run 1,000+ miles next year. I know you said you might be changing things a little, but that will be my goal (or something similar to it, so I can't wait to hear more!) I just started racing, so I haven't really gained much distance. My other goal for 2011 will be to complete a 1/2 marathon. I also started a running blog to chronicle my journey and make myself more accountable (and also to highlight your 2011 run club when you announce!)

Love Great Wolf Lodge. We ended up there one night for a race because it was a sponsor and the price was right - had a blast. There is something there for everyone.

I'm working on my own goals; there are too broad right now.

I have never been to Great Wolf, but it sounds like fun!

No, 1000 miles this year - injuries suck. I have learned a lot this year, and it has been helpful.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I just got the Great Wolf Lodge commercial jingle stuck in my head now. :) Two of my friends spent a weekend there and had a blast. Note: they are both in their mid-twenties. LOL

So many goals for 2011! I need to count up my final tab for miles for 2010 and see how I stacked up - and then to write out what I want to do for 2011.

Denise said...

Glad you had a good time. I want to go back so bad (I have a free night and breakfast for 4 voucher) but don't know if I can convince the hubby after the catastrophe last time.

There is a Great Wolf lodge somewhere here, well in my tri state area. We went there to check it out but didn't stay we were house looking back then. Glad you all had a great time!

Can't wait to read your new approach!
