Hey friends! I don’t know what it is about this week but I can’t WAIT for the weekend. Yesterday brought a three mile run on my half-marathon training plan. I tackled it after work in the ninety degree heat. I had been feeling a little frustrated so when my iPod landed on Eminem I went with it and ran my little heart out. Three miles in 28:06, not too shabby! I’m running a 5k next Thursday with Melissa, my running buddy. I’m hoping to see a sub-30! It will be nice to achieve one of my goals.
Abbi posted another fabulous distance dreamers post today. Today’s questions are:
What has been your best running experience/memory?
I think it’s a tossup between finishing the 14k with Bri or successfully completing the uber challenging military mile during the Boilermaker 15k. At this point in the race, I was tired, hot and ready to be DONE. However, despite the hills and the heat, I was so inspired by the patriotism shown on the course and I couldn’t help but think of Brian and how proud I am of him.
It’s also been pretty neat to see my friends get into running after listening to me go on and on (and on) about it. I’ve also met some really cool people through running that I wouldn’t have met otherwise. 🙂
What is your worst running experience/memory?
Ah, that would definitely be between miles two and three at the Jingle Bell 5k this past December. Let’s just say I left the house not having used the services, if you will. It later hit me at that point in the race, and I had to stop for a bit or disaster would have struck. Running is totally glamorous.
I’m a little late to the game but I opened up one of those formspring accounts where you can ask me anything (anonymously or not). So, any burning questions? If so, just ask 🙂
Ah, so today is day two of the challenge. I can say so far that it is nice to only have select items to work with. I have a feeling it is going to get a wee bit more challenging in the next couple of weeks. Today’s ‘fit:
I definitely need to start using my actual camera.
- Berry colored knit cardigan- J Crew Factory Outlet (purchased January 2010)
- Black and white patterned top- Banana Republic (purchased January 2008)
- Black wool blend pants- Express (purchased Spring 2004)
- Berry patent leather mary janes- Aldo (purchased September 2009)
- Glasses- Coach
I’m loving the fact that I’m still wearing pants that I purchased my senior year of college. They’re my first pair of “adult” working world pants. There is nothing really special about this outfit, aside from the shoes. 😀 I love shoes. I purchased these for my cousin’s bat mitzvah last fall- she requested that family members wear purple. Mmhmm. Oh, and Julie– I did get my hair cut 😀 I want it back, haha.
Alright friends, back to it. I’ll see you tomorrow with a delish cookie recipe and Day 3 of the wardrobe challenge!
