Well I'm back from my spring break in MN. Sorry I didn't make it to MN or to see my house. Hopefully it's still standing. I think if there was trouble the association would let me know. My week in MN was great. Wedding showers are kinda fun when they are for you. Maybe I was just bitter before because I was single...I guess I haven't been to a wedding shower since I started dating Jake.... Humm....

I got a ton of stuff done. Found a good florist, and got a great idea from my friend Andie that will keep some of the costs down.

Unfortunately I picked a cold while I was there so I've been fighting with that all week. This weekend I'm looking forward to having some down time at home. Maybe be a little girly and get a mani/pedi and a haircut. We'll see, the options are endless.

No good excuse

Man I thought I'd be better at this blogging thing.

I'll keep working on it. Right now I'm on spring break and in MN. Had a wedding shower last Saturday. It was fun.

I'll see if I can do better this week with all my free time. Too bad that seems to be getting filled up fast.

10k completion!

Last Saturday I completed the 10k I was training for. My official time was one hour and two minutes. I am pretty happy with that time. Of course if I had know I would end up being that close to an hour, I would have tried to pick up the pace just a little all the way through to get under an hour.

It was a freezing cold super windy day, and I more than once thought to myself, if it wasn't race day, there is no way I would be out here running. As always, my experience with races like this was positive. It is just fun to be around a whole bunch of people who all have the same goal that you do.

On Monday I started training for a half marathon. I am not going to be about to run the full Grandma's marathon in Duluth as I had originally planned. I am able to take a summer class, and unfortunately graduation trumps marathon.

So instead, I will be running in the heels and hills half marathon in May, and will most likely give the marathon an attempt either next year at the Cowtown, or sometime this fall. I know there is one in Dallas as well as one in San Antonio.

I'll keep ya'll posted on how everything progresses.
