Pony Express Half Marathon Training Week 1: 1/9-1/15

This week started week one of my goal half marathon race in the Spring. I'll be running the Pony Express half marathon on April 30th in Sacramento and it's the race I am hoping to PR in this year. I am trying something different and I am going with a coach's plan. Not just any coach but my sister's running coach, Dawn. She came up with my training plan and I'm very excited to see how it goes. :)

As to the weekend, on Saturday the kiddos both had their first basketball game of the season. It was fun to watch them play!
On Sunday, I enjoyed running with the girls in the morning.
The boys got to play soccer with neighborhood friends.
We also got more fun play time in the afternoon outside. We had to take advantage of the beautiful weather. We played some baseball and also threw the football around.
For dinner we celebrated Hubby's birthday early since we have plans to go skiing Monday (today). :)
Happy birthday to Hubby! 
That pretty much sums up my week! Linking this post up with HoHo Runs and MissSippiPiddlin for their Weekly Wrap. 
Have a great week!
