I Got a New Header!

Good morning bloggy friends! Before I get started, I wanted to ask your opinion on my new header! The hubski made it for me, and for having no experience really in Photoshop, I think he did a wonderful job. What do you think?

It’s Friiiidayyy! πŸ˜€ Man did Thursday night seem to fly by fast.

Well, perhaps it flew by because today was a run day. I broke in my running skirt that I modeled yesterday, and I have to say, I will be purchasing more of these! Not only are they freakin’ cute, but I had absolutely no issues with shorts riding up (underneath the skirt is kinda like short spandex.) So comfortable.

I was only going to do four miles today, but I accidentally went on my 5 (4.7 really to be exact) mile route! Woops! haha, oh well, I finished strong, and with my best time yet!

I averaged out a 9:10 mile pace (I think…if I calculated it right!) So I did the 4.7 miles in 42:30 minutes. I couldn’t believe it. Here are my other stats:

(ewww sweaty wrists!)

So I’ve mentioned to the hubski that I want a Garmin (or another HRM that measures distance.) I’m kind of thinking he might be getting it for my anniversary present. Our one year anniversary is coming up in September πŸ˜€ I just hate having to guess how far I’ve gone, or what my pace is etc., especially since I’m going to be running in races here really soon.

Shane took a picture of me downing a coconut water post-run:

After I got my electrolyte fill, I took a shower and popped a pizza in the oven for Shane:

And popped this in the Oven for me:

It was pretty good. I’ll most likely get it again :). I just didn’t feel like cooking, and today’s a no-buy day, so we couldn’t go out or order in.

As always, I’m in a great mood, because it’s Friday, and that means a half day for me! After work I’ll be headed to the grocery stores (we’re getting pretty bare in the fridge) to stock up for this week’s eats. Then, my parents are coming over and Shane and I will be going out to eat with them. They’re gonna watch the house and Niko while we’re in Chicago on Saturday for my girl, Destiny’s birthday! πŸ˜€ I’m super pumped. We’re going to go to Six Flags Great America during the day. I’ll make sure to document it πŸ˜‰

I’ll also be in Chicago next weekend. Will anyone else be in the Chicago-land area?

    Ahhh I so wish I was in Chicago right now! I went to grad school near Waukegan/Gurnee and lived in Lincoln Park last year. After I graduated in June, I moved back my homestate, Michigan, but I miss the city!! Chicago is the best!!!

  6. Ooooh Great America is fun!! Are you up in the SF bay area?? Glad you had a great run! I love my garmin – runs haven't been the same since I got it. Hope your hubby listens to your hints! πŸ˜‰
