Sorry I have been a bad blogger lately. Getting back into the swing of things after the holidays was interesting, especially since this was my first weekend that wasn't three days long and my first 5 day work week. I was getting rather spoiled. Jim has slowed down somewhat, I have a feeling that it wont last long. He had been going through the process of testing for the new tactical medic program here which consisted of a written test, physical agility testing, & interview. The team is a pilot program that will be working with local law enforcement He found out last week that he did make the team, needless to say he is very excited. At the upcoming awards banquet the six firefighters that made the team will be pinned. I am looking forward to it very much, although it means I will be missing the 5k I had registered to run that evening. Who starts a 5k at 7pm on a Friday night anyway?! I do plan to attend the expo on Thursday and Jim and I plan on running a 5k Saturday so that my training is not a waste. Hopefully the weather holds out as last year the marathon was canceled due to snow. You may remember this picture.
Hopefully February will be more of an exciting month. The weather seems to be warming up. Proving this to be one of the more mild winters I have spent in SC. Although the weather has been anywhere from sunny and 68 on New Years day to cold, snowy, icy, and in the 30's on the 10th. We have already been plotting our next camping trip once the weather warms up more.
