3 Miles and Outtakes

For the past few weeks, my running has been very inconsistent: One week, I have regular runs and I log some respectable mileage; then, the next week, I barely run at all. In an effort to correct this, I decided that this week is a fresh start and my primary goal is simply some consistency. So, to start off such freshness, I got up at the ungodly hour of 5 am and went out for a 3 miler. It was nice and cool out, so the run felt good. It wasn't fast (33:06), but I got it done. And on a Monday morning at that!

In other news, yesterday I stuffed Norah into a cute holiday outfit that my stepmother had sent her, and Jerry and I staged a photoshoot in an attempt to capture some good pics for our Christmas card. It's not easy taking pics of a baby, but we did get some shots that were decent, and in the end, I put together a card that I felt was "good enough." But, what I thought was funny were some of the "outtakes." If I were a more creative person, I'd find a clever way of using these pics for the Christmas card!

Without further ado, here are a few pics that did NOT make the Christmas card this year:

Good run- even if it wasn't fast, you still got out there, which is more I can say for myself!

Love the outtakes. I like the one w/ her hand on her forward, like she's wiping her head from exhaustion- this modeling stuff IS tough!

Looks like you guys had fun at the beach too!

What great shots!

Lisa said...

I just LOVE the outtakes. :-)

Carly said...

So cute! Love all the photos. LOL at least she is not old enough to whine and storm off with divatude.

Great job on the run.

I'm sorry to hear that #2 didn't make the card...I loved it...a very tired santa.

Nobel4Lit said...

Aww, so cute(!), though one day she might be embarrassed by these (hint: use them to get her to listen to you later). =P

Liz said...

Love the outfit and the outtakes are so cute...you should make a collage card and use them all! :)

Jess said...

Haha what cute outtakes! Are we going to get to see which picture actually made the card?

Love the eye-rubbing one! She looks like a santa after a hard day at the mall.

Its a bit hard to get the little ones to cooperate for holiday cards. I think a montage of outtakes would be much more fun than some cute, perfect picture ;) Thats real life!

Wes said...

That's just an awful way to start a Monday :-) Did you not get the memo? Procrastination is the order of the day! hahahaha!

Norah is a champ...

Marlene said...

Nicole said...

Running Jen said...

Krissy said...

Love the out take pictures! so cute!

I too did the same thing for Eli's Christmas Card, it was "good enough" and that was all I was getting out of him that day!

Amanda said...

Those outtake shots are great. It'll be fun to look back on those when she's older.

N.D. said...

these pics are so cute! The 3 1/2s are great motivation too.

Agate Lake Girl said...

Yes, sometimes the bloopers are the best! The card was adorable though - the pictures were definitely good enough!

sRod said...

Just keep getting out there!
