A girl with God and a lot of yeses in the middle

2 days between blogs, it's a miracle.  No I just have about 20 minutes right now.

Wanted to update you on my running abilities.  I know you are very interested in my exercise, so I thought I would satisfy your longing to know how far I have run.  Well guys, I'm changing the world one mile at a time.  On Christmas morning (yes that was almost a month ago) I ran 2.9 miles!  I almost hit my 3 mile marker and then, I almost died.  (I'm not dramatic at all by the way).

Since Christmas I've been running about 2-3 miles a few times a week.  I feel like I've conquered the world.  I also really like how my clothes fit ;)  I even got some cool running shoes from a running store!  At that same store I decided to buy some running pants.  After looking at the price tag, I went to target and purchased some for about 75% less than the cool pair.  So I've got official shoes, and target pants.  Oh Target, how I love thee.  I will miss you in the land of sea urchins and beans.

Not sure what exercise in Haiti will look like when it comes to the cardiovascular workouts, but I have a goal to run 5 miles at least one time before I move in Feb.  Maybe I'll create my own race with a number on my t-shirt, a beginning/finishing line, tie orange ribbon around my laces, and then give myself an iTunes gift card for winning.  It's easy to win the race you create, solely compete in, and win.


  1. YAY for running, running shoes, and Target pants! If you need a cheerleader for the race call me!

  2. Thanks for making me laugh. Please actually make your own race ... And invite deidra to cheer you on. I can't believe you move so soon. Remember that time we said goodbye to each other for the next 5 years? Stink.
