5-K Race

I know its not far, but it took many months of inconsistent training to work up the endurance for 1.5 miles.  I will repeat the first week one time before I move on to week two.  🙂

I am pretty sure my persistence is due to my schmancy new running shoes…although they don’t look this clean anymore…

Getting ready for my 1st 5K!!

 ♥ Want to hear my recent inspiration?

Her♥ little brother, ♥O’Reilly (age 8), who was diagnosed with liver disease this year recently joined a track team.

His colitis doesn’t flare up, thanks to his medication, but I can tell in his energy levels that he’s had a rough year.

During a track meet the other day, ♥O’Reilly was passing one of the older boys

and the boy said to him: “Get out of my way, mot**fu**er.”

We asked ♥O’Reilly what he said back to the little lint-licker!

He said, “Nothing, I just beat him.”

Random-om-om

19 Apr

Just some random thoughts prior to coffee:

1.  Couponing is harder than it should be.  WTF, why didn’t I pay attention in math class.  Or why is it so complicated?  I always get tricked into spending MORE money, not SAVING money by using a coupon.

2.  Why, because one gay activist group says its okay, do Brad & Angelina finally get married?  Like, hello, you guys are fakers.  You never really cared.  And your ring is fugly.

3.  I am really excited for craft beer week in Pittsburgh.  I have marked April 27th in my calandar to experience Dogfish Head at Fathead’s Saloon in Pittsburgh’s SouthSide with Amanda.

4.  I am really nervous for my first 5K, coming up in June.  Like it makes me want to throw up I’m so nervous.

5.  I seriously love gummy bears.  They seriously hurt my teeth.  The depravity of life.

6.  I am really proud of myself for staying dedicated to my running regiment. ♥  I have been following Hal Higdon’s 5-K Training: Novice training.

Have a nice morning 🙂
