1. I realized today that it's been over a month since my big half marathon debut. I've done one run. Yikes. Also, I still haven't actually ordered the CD of the official race pictures... which is a complete shame because they snapped some really great pictures of me, including one when I was trying desperately to get my armwarmer off about 2 miles in because it was warming up and I am clearly PISSED. So glad the photographer caught that moment. So since I still have no official photos to show you... let's take a look at my favorite picture that my Pops took that I have not felt the need to share yet. Get ready. It's glamorous.
That mini bagel was probably the greatest thing I'd ever tasted.
And in case you still think I'm pretty... think again.
Is it lame that looking at these pictures makes me really hope that I wake up feeling good enough to go for a run tomorrow? Taking Bonnie on a trail walk yesterday made me really want to run that trail again. I miss it. I need to pick another race to train for and get back on it.
2. Speaking of things I need to get back on... my arms got tired today putting my hair into a ponytail. Um. I swear I did P90X. Maybe it's time for some more strength training?
I definitely staged this picture with the intention of writing a whole blog post about strength training. I desperately need a real life.
3. I've decided I need a fabulous shade of red lipstick and the confidence to wear it every day of my life. And yes, that was incredibly random and had nothing to do with anything... but it's true!
