Hi everyone! I hope you had a fabulous New Years celebration!
For years, it has been a Suazo family tradition to spend the evening with the Hughes-Luebke family (my parent’s neighbors). We brought the XBox Kinect & food and they provided the house & the alcohol. We had a great night; a great night that included me shaking my booty!

Here my parents were trying to play gross kissy face. I quickly reminded them of what happens when they do that...they get a monkey in the middle!
This is a classic "Jess, do something silly--don't just stand there" pose. Monster Hands!
Did you do anything fun for New Years?
Of course I didn’t have too much fun. I had a 5k this morning! I actually procrastinated signing up for this race & almost didn’t do it. I was not excited about running alone [excuse] and kept thinking I would just run the next race.
One of my friends was talking about doing a midnight race via Facebook. I told her to have fun & that I had actually wanted to do a New Years race but couldn’t find anyone to run with. Her response:
“I'm running it by myself. This year - it's less talk, more action and no excuses!”
And shortly after reading that, I made it to Best Feet Forward to get registered. My excuse had been proven LAME! I woke up early this morning to make my green juice & get bundled up.
Besides being windy, the race was great! I ran my fastest 5k (31:51) & it was definitely the perfect start to my 2012!
I will carry Kristin’s advice with me for the rest of the year. Hopefully we can all be more action & less talk and quit making horrible excuses!
