I did not eat before my race. I started off too fast. I looked behind me. BIG mistake.
It was a humbling experience as it was at my old high school, I knew two people and ran by myself, and I did not do too well! Buuuuut, the t-shirt is so cute that it was way worth it. And I got a good workout on a Saturday morning. My dad told me I was better than 99% of the people who didn't even try.
I discovered MckMama's blog this week. Her baby, Stellan, is in Boston Children's Hospital with some serious heart issues. Their story has developed quite a following, but I enjoyed reading about her life aside from Stellan's miracles. She makes her own baby food, cloth diapers her kids, and wears her babies in a sling. It's interesting, and I will definitely be implementing some of her cool blogging traditions! Praying for her family and Baby Stellan.
My husband threw me a surprise anniversary party tonight at my parents' house. He planned this extravagant BBQ and pool party and talked my friends into deceiving me. My best friend ended up distracting me while he set everything up, and several of our friends asked me if they had given it away at various times. It was so much fun to have my friends in one place. ("remember when I told you about the girl with five kids? this is her! ohhhhh!") I truly have the best husband in the whole world!
The other night after work, we took a sunset walk and I snapped this gorgeous picture!
