Let your hair down!

Tonight I decided to run with my hair down! I'm not sure why I decided to do this, but I did! My hair stayed straight  the whole time! This is actually an "after" picture! This is also the first time I have run in a t-shirt. I usually run in tank tops. Yeah, probably won't happen again. It was too uncomfortable. I don't think I will be cold after I start going, so I'm not going to worry about longer sleeves during the winter. Unless I can find some sweat wicking shirts. :) The hubby ran along with me again to keep me company. :) He is getting better at motivating me to keep going. I ❤ him for this. :)

As for the run...We ran 2 miles in 29 minutes. Yes I added a minute, but I took 4 days off before this run. Life happened and I just couldn't get out there....I hope this never happens again. My calves were so tight and sore almost the whole run! The weather, however, was amazing! A cool 65 degrees! I'm loving the fall weather! Just not sure what winter will bring! I just hope it doesn't hurt my breathing...We walked a half a mile and then decided to run the last half! It was great! I am almost confident that I will be able to run an entire 5K very soon! 

Tonight I found out that the track I have been running, this whole time, is actually 3.6 miles and not 3.1 like I had assumed! Tonight it just felt like something was off...We walked the first quarter mile to warm up. We then ran 2 miles. Then we walked half a mile and then ran another half mile. It just didn't add up. Then I looked it up, and come to find out..That first "quarter" mile is actually longer! It all equals 3.6! Weird, I know! So I have been going farther than I thought I had been all along! So when I completed the whole track in 54 minutes tonight...I may have done almost a 50 minute 5K! Which is closer to my 45 minute goal on race day! I'm so excited! I can't wait to get my Garmin Forerunner, so I can really track my mileage! :)

Pre-run I had half of one of these...

The hubby had the other half. It was so yummy! I liked it better than the Chocolate chip ones!  Also drank half a cup of coffee for a bit more energy. It was the Dunkin Donuts coffee! Oh so yummy! :)

I just wanted to add this picture from the Lamar Cardinals Football game on Saturday! I thought it was a great pic of us :) We got our Red on! (To bad we lost, lol) 


  1. dude i look like a nerd.......that is a horrible picture

  2. I am so proud of you. I have been wanting to start C25K the past week, but Brad won't let me since I got sick. I am still coughing and recovering from laryngitis (did I spell that right?), so he won't let me go out. But I have been reading your blog all day and I am so inspired. I can't wait til you are here so we can help each other (although it looks like you are doing just fine). BTW, that is a cute pic of Cody!

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :) I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love... My BOB Revolution SE ! I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here ! :) My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces ! They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes! I love their moto! Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray. In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver . Th

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful! We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do! It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option. We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :) And that's not all of the big news! I
