Back to Running

This past week, I have decided to dust off and lace up my running shoes in an attempt to get back into running once again.  I ventured out for a quick run on Wednesday and Thursday night and both went fairly well with me doing about 3 miles each day.  Although it was humid, it being evening and the sun already set helped keep me somewhat-not really-cool but it was at least tolerable.

The same could not be said for this morning's run.  The goal was to get up around 630 and get my run done before the sun came out but I didn't make it out until around 830 or so.  It was hot and so friggin humid I could barely breathe.  The humidity is bad enough but that sun overhead was the icing on the cake.  But, at least I got through my three miles, albeit a wee bit slower than I would have liked. That's ok though cuz at least it's done!

I do think I'll have to either get up earlier or wait till the evenings for these runs cuz it's just too miserable out there for me when the sun is out. At least for the next three months or so until the temps (hopefully) cool down again.  At least there was an iced coffee to look forward to afterwards!

A Little Something

So my good friend in Minnesota has found out she is pregnant and I wanted to get her something special to celebrate her great news.

So, being we were drinking buddies in college (as well as the present) I decided on this:

Nothing like a good book filled with all the yummy drinks we love to share in mommy form!  I also found a great mommy-to-be wine glass to go along with it.  I am sure this will give her a chuckle when she receives it...hopefully the glass makes the trip as well.
