2.77 and Day 8! :)

I finally got the courage decided to run the other direction down the sidewalk today. I am always leery of trying new things.  But I sucked it up and did it anyway, because I knew I wanted to go a longer distance. The wonderful iPhone app miCoach lets me know how far I've gone and my pace. It even tracks me on the GPS, so I can see where I was when I get back on the computer! I missed a couple of runs last week, due to laziness having other hings to do. :) So, I am making them up this week. That's my plan anyway...I ran 2.7 miles in 45 minutes. I was trying to bet the sun going down and deicded to finish the last 15 min. around the apartment complex. I felt a little safer doing that in the dark. :) I guess I need to get some reflective items for the dark! 

I got a lot accomplished today and was able to cross some things off my to-do list. Tomorrow I have a job interview and then I hopefully will complete all of the other "to-do's" I did not get to today. I'm really hoping to get this job, but we will see! :) 

On to Day 8 of 30 Days of Thanks! 
I am Thankful for Cheese! Another funny one! I love cheese so much. I could eat my weight in it if it was in front of me! Apparently I got this from my mother! haha :) One of my favorite things ever is to dip popcorn chicken from wal-mart in melted Velveeta. Oh my goodness delicious! Yes, I know it is not healthy at all....but sometimes you just gotta have some cheese! :) Maybe that should be my slogan...I run for Cheese! Haha :)

*What is the one thing you could say you run for?

  2. I run for myself and peace of mind. Too many stressful things can be easily dealt with during running - clears the mind.

    I'm just like you - just started the running and even downloaded an App for the c25k program! Good luck! I'll definitely keep myself updated on your progress!

This is what PRO Compression has to say about how they work:

The science is complex, but benefits such as improved blood flow, stability and comfort are universally understood.  The moment you put these socks on your feet and incorporate them into your game, you will feel and understand the difference."
I have 4 pairs of PRO Compression Marathon socks and I LOVE them! They have been wonderful for recovery after my last two halfs and after my long training runs!
I didn't own any after my first half, and it took me almost 2 weeks until I could …

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 also got a job!
It is an office job, where I will be doing t…

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 BOBRevolution 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.
This i the Personal Saver I carry it on my keychain everyw…
