I have a ton of catching up to do. For one I left work early on Friday so Bill and I could head to Childress to visit Amber and her family..... which leaves a ton of un read/un responded emails. I totally intended to blog while I was in Childress...but Amber and I ended up having so much fun it just didn't happen. So not only do I have three days of the challenge to catch up on... I have over 100 blog posts to read and subsequently comment on. SHEESH....
Plus this next weekend is SBJ's bachelorette party so I have a TON of things to get done for that.
1. Shopping for decorations, plates, forks, cups, etc.... shouldn't be that difficult but it's one more thing to the to-do list.
2. Putting together a SUPER surprise for her...she may read this so I can't go into detail.
3. Shopping for a dress for the party
So all and all I have a lot to do.... oh yea - throw training in their too.... did I mention I have my first 1/2 marathon in 19 days? 19 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I ran 8miles this weekend... it was not easy but I did it...and I did it at a relatively nice pace. 10:15/mile. I'll take it. This weekend I have a 9 miler... it's scheduled for Sunday but I think I'm going to flip flop and do the run on Saturday and the bike on Sunday. It works better for my schedule that way.
9 miles...... 9 freakin' miles....that's one loop around White Rock Lake...so if you are in Dallas - I will be chugging my ass around WRL on Saturday....feel free to join.
DAY 10: Something you are afraid of
I'm afraid of very little to be honest. If you asked me five years ago what I was afraid of I would have said dying. I'm not afraid of DEATH - but I would have said DYING...but considering I've lost so many people over the last few years I'm not really afraid of that anymore.
I'm not afraid of heights... I jumped out of plane once and would do it again.
I'm terrified of open water swimming.... funny since I love triathlon..... but I hate swimming in open water.
DAY 11: Favorite TV Shows.....
This is an easy post...please re-direct your browsers HERE and then add - Boardwalk Empire and East Bound and Down.
DAY 12: Something I believe in
I believe in a lot of things…I believe that the sun will always rise and you always have a second chance to make things right. I believe that karma will bite you if you aren’t true to yourself, your friends, your family, and others. I believe that the smile tells everything. I believe in God. I believe that you can make it through anything. I believe that love makes everything better, whether that love is through friends, family, pets, significant others or anything else. I believe life is to short to worry about the petty things and I believe in me.
What do you believe in???
