Good afternoon everyone! I hope you are having a happy hump day! Today was tempo run day in my marathon training plan. It called for 5 miles. A warm up mile, 3 miles @ 10:59, and a cool down mile. I chose to do this on the treadmill so I could keep a steady speed (my speed was 10:54) and I had a really good run! I was pretty proud. Stopped once for 30 seconds to guzzle water but that was it.

Hubby and I went to Smoothie King, and I came home and sat out in the sun for 30 minutes and drank my smoothie. The girls came, too.


Those sweet girls just love being outside.

Guess what? I received another blogger award, yay! This is the Cherry on Top Award.



The Rules:

1. Answer this question: if you had the chance to go back and change one thing in your life, would you and what would it be?

2. The second thing you have to do is, pick 6 people and give them this award. You then have to inform the person that they have gotten this award.

3. The third and final thing is, thank the person who gave you the award


Ok, here are my answers:

1. hmm….I would go back to high school and not take myself so seriously. I was a 3 sport athlete, and it was my life. I let it consume me, and didn’t have as much time for friends as I would have liked. Other than that I wouldn’t change anything MAJOR because I feel the things that were hard made me the strong person I am today!

2. I am not going to pick 6 people…so I guess I am breaking the rules ha! I think it’s more special to just give to one or two people who I haven’t given to before, so I am giving this award to:

Tina @

3. Thanks so much to Silly Girl Running for giving me this award. She is a faithful follower, reader, and commenter (which I REALLY appreciate, the comments!) So go check out her blog!

Have a great afternoon everyone!

QOTD: what would you go back and change if you could?
