:) It's Friday!

Blogger FAIL
Every now and then when I log into blogger I get this screen:

And I want to punch my computer screen because that is just not the case. What I do in actuality is click the "B" for Blogger and suddenly my little dashboard appears. Weird.

6.2 WIN

As some of you may know, I've been doing 10k training for the past however long. Well, since I am dumb and didn't actually line up my training with any races, I finished training today. Solution? Run a 10k this morning, duh. In actuality I was running 6+ miles a couple weeks before I started training, but I wanted to set a good, solid foundation and I love training and I wasn't sure where I wanted to go with my running, thus 10k training seemed logical.

After an entire week of not getting enough sleep, waking up in the middle of the night, etc., I finally got a decent full (ok, 6 hours) sleep last night. At 4:50am my alarm went off and I popped out of bed, laced up my sneakers and was out the door to run my 6.2. I took it pretty conservative because running in my neighborhood is BORING (especially for distances longer than 1 mile and when no one is awake and its dark out) and I didn't want to burn out and quit early. I realized in the last 1/2 mile that I took it a little too conservatively because I felt really good and not worn out, so I did the only natural thing and raced the last 1/2 mile in. Glorious. So, 6.2 I'm done with you now and will move on to half marathon training (and if you're wondering I run an actual 10k on June 11).


I saved the best for last. :) See, I time all my runs so that when I'm walking/cooling off I walk past my mailbox and today was no exception. Except today when I checked my mail I had a package!!!!

A little while back here I WON ONE OF RUNNING GIRL'S GIVEAWAYS! I say "one of" because her she is SUPER AWESOME and did 3 giveaway's at once. If you don't read her blog, then you should. She is one hot mama who is training for 2 upcoming half marathons! You GO GIRL.

How cute is she? I stole this pic from her blog :)


Wanna see again?

Please excuse my extremely red face, but I live in Houston, home of humidity, so even runs at 5am make me sweat like crazy. And the wet hair is the result of showering off 10lbs of sweat. There's no way you would've wanted to see a picture of me pre-shower.


Ah, my soul is satisfied. Gummy bears and new lip gloss plus a sweet note on cute stationary! PERFECT way to start the morning.

And then, just when I thought it couldn't get any better, I went through the rest of my mail.

Do you see what I see?

Here let me help:

30% off Yogurt Cup?! Guess where I'm going soon...


  1. Awww, so sweet! This totally made my day. :-)

    Glad you liked your package. I LOVE their lipgloss.

  2. Yay for packages and fun mail!

  3. What a great package! I could use a pick me up like that!

    Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! :)
