Running Excitement!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!  OMG, I had the best time on the treadmill last night!  How crazy is that?!?  I walked and ran (mostly walked) 4 miles on there last night and I felt amazing!!!  I just kept going and going, singing along to my favorite tunes – it was AWESOME!  I did my scheduled W5D2 of C25K (ran 8 minutes straight TWICE and I didn’t die!!), then just kept going.  I walked and walked at a brisk pace for the next 30 minutes.  When I saw I was close to 4 miles I thought “I’m getting it!  I’m going to go 4 miles!!!” and I did!  Gah, it just felt so great!  I’m still on a high from it!  I just had to share!  To think, a few short weeks ago I struggled to run 1 1/2 minutes, now I can run 8!!! 

In addition to that awesome part of my day, my very very good friend Shauna took me to get a massage for my birthday.  Holy wow, it was awesome!  We went shopping for a bit in the morning and had a fabulous time doing that.  I still haven’t found a dress for my nephew’s First Communion and the 3 weddings we have this summer, but I did get a pair of capris that are super cute.  Then we grabbed a quick lunch before heading to our massage appt.  So we get there and get a tour of the area we will be in. Then we change into our swimsuits and soak in the hot tub for a bit.  We also tried out the InfraRed Sauna (nice!).  Then it was time for our massage!  Awww, so nice!  An hour of heaven!  Afterwards we were able to take a shower and wash the oil out of our hair and off ourselves.  It was so amazing, the nicest massage experience I’ve ever had (only had 1 other so not much to compare it to)!  What a treat for me!


BTW- this is my friend who I think resembles Miranda Lambert, both in looks and attitude. She’s awesome!

Tomorrow is the big Winery Tour day!  My sister and I are taking our mom to a couple of wineries for her birthday.  We are also going to hit up some little shops if we can find some.  It’s going to be a fabulous day together, I can’t wait!  We are bringing our grandma along, too, because she’ll have a great time goofing off with us.  I’m hoping to have lots of fun pictures on Monday to share!

What are your weekend plans?
