Sweet Run and Weekend Review

Time: 40:45
Distance: 4.0


First and foremost, I've been tagged twice as a rocking girl blogger! Thanks to Neese and Renee for that. And now for my five chicas that get me through the days o' training:



And I'm tagging one more here (even though she's not a runner...hope that's not cheating!)

Whooo check it out! That's almost a 10-minute mile pace! I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't pumped with those results. It was a good run today. My legs felt fresh when I got outside, and they stayed that way for most of the run. I got a little bit of a shin splint about 10 minutes in or so, but it faded after a while.

The weather today was pretty pleasant as well. Slightly overcast so there was no hot sun beating down on me and the humidity, while it was there, didn't seem as bad as normal. It was a balmy, in the 70s when I took off at 6:30 this morning.


I don't have any super fascinating weekend plans to report. My softball end of the season party was on Saturday night, where they presented everyone with some sort of trophy. I received the "Perfect Attendance" award. Check it out:



Spent Saturday reading the new HP book. My roommates came with me to pick it up on Friday night. The place we went turned the entire street into Diagon Alley. We were all pretty amused. Here's a pic my roomie snapped of one of the signs hanging in a store window:


Nothing else exciting to report today.

I love Harry Potter. One of these days, when I have time, I'm actually going to have to sit down and read the books to see what I have been missing. Usually, I do it the other way around, read the books first and then see the movies. Nice run! You are getting speedy :-)

Our Harry Potter party that we went to was so fun! Harry feels like one of my kids. :>)

Thanks for the shout out!!

Ya, today's weather is perfect for a great run like that! I got off the metro at 9 and wasn't hot...and I am in pants! Congrats on the run by the way. That would be cool to see you do come September!

Thank you for the note! Tehehe! can I put the picture on my blog? (big goofy gal smile)

BTW, sammy wammy is visiting this weekend! I am thinking of taking her fruit picking sat. Wanna come?

Jess perfect attendance is something to be admired too many people these days slack off for one reason or the other. Excellent recognition with one of the grooviest trophies i have EVER seen!!
