The highlight of my weekend (which went by way too fast, what’s up with that anyway?) is that yesterday I managed to run a full 3.02 miles. Once again, the farthest I’ve ever run but also it makes me feel a little bit better about signing up for a 5K. I am pretty confident that within the next 13 days (ack!) I can add an extra .08 of a mile to my runs and therefore finish when the day comes. I hope. Let’s not talk about how LONG it took to run that far, but it doesn’t even really matter I guess. My first goal is distance. Time will come eventually, I think.
This weekend I also bought the magazine Runner’s World for the first time. I felt like such a poser. Wait, is it spelled poseur now?
One day I’m gonna look like Kara Goucher. Not really.
I also went into Academy to see if they had any cute workout clothes that I needed (thankfully for my wallet, they did not) and found an mp3-compatible top. Um, what? Yeah it was all normal until I turned it to the other side and found this:
A friend said it looked like something.. well not suitable for this blog. I’ll leave that to your imagination.
So you slip in your iPod nano and run with it? I feel like I’d end up with my nano beating up my back while I run. That would be less than fun. Besides, nanos are so… a few years ago. I ended up giving my hot pink one away to someone in need (although sometimes I kinda want it back because it was so cute). If I ever have money (and this would have to be AFTER buying my Garmin, siiiigh so basically I’ll never have money), I’m snagging one of these:
Hello awesomeness. Also know as the Sony W-Series Walkman MP3 Player. Drool.
And finally, there are pretty blooms everywhere. This isn’t really new, it’s been spring since February here in Texas, but I still love looking at flowers. Especially when it’s at a random location, like walking into Target.
At first I thought it was a magnolia tree but now I’m not so sure.
This flower looks a bit sad what with the brown edges. Aw.
And that was my weekend. So how was yours? 🙂
