Happy Legs

Thank you guys for all your comments on yesterdays post. It really means a lot and I'm so happy to share a summer wedding with many of you! This is what Jason had delivered to my office yesterday morning. It was so cute, because I had 2 female clients I was talking to when they were delivered and they said "awwwww!!" and had huge smiles on. How sweet. Now, I just have to try to keep my cats from eating the flowers.

Shortly after I got home from work, my mom, brother and nephew came over for dinner (my brother & nephew live in WA). It was so nice to visit with them. I haven't seen them in a few months. My nephew is always on the move, so it's difficult to get a good picture.

This morning, I had a total of 11 miles on my schedule. My plan was to run 8 on the streets and a 5k on the tm (it helps me keep my pace accurate). I made a couple wrong turn on the streets and got a little turned around and some how shortened my run. I usually make the run longer whenever this happens. It wasn't cut that much shorter. I ended up running 7.85 on the street.

I am participating in Adam's Sweat your thorns off 5k today. So, the last 3.1 miles was done on the tm. I wanted to make sure I got an accurate time. My finishing 5k time was 29.14. It's not my best time, but definitely up there.

My legs felt strong and super happy to be outside (I'm only able to run outside on the weekends). They really wanted to keep going, but I have things I need to do and don't want to push myself too hard before next weekends 13 miles.

Look how good I feel. I'm smiling so big, you can barely see my eyes. So happy to be feeling good after this weeks long run and I can't wait until next weekends new route, (It was a new route this week (that's why I got turned around)) and it's near the river. Yay, for hopefully a cool breeze.

How did you start your Saturday?


  1. I started my Saturday by being late (and I am NEVER late) to my gym class. I'm spending the middle of it catching up on my favorite blogs (I have been AWOL for too long) and will spend the end of it with a BBQ on the lake. SUMMER!!

  2. great run and happy anniversary! I did Adam's 'race' and then golfing..and have been house cleaning since. Boo

  3. Congrats!!! thanks again for running!
