First Run of the Season

We did it!!

We finished our first run of the season...and in decent time too seeing as how we haven't really been training. Only just started getting out to run a few weeks ago since it's started getting warmer.
But, we did it! Me - 1:02:13. Furman, about a minute ahead of me. God Bless Him for trying to help me move a bit faster. lol But, I was running out of steam quickly towards the end. My mind kept playing tricks on me...telling me that I would feel much better if I just stopped and walked for a quick minute. I didn't though. Nope...kept going and finished with a better time than I received in 2012 when I ran it the first time. lol

Today, I didn't feel too bad. Just tired because I didn't sleep very good last night. But, I will tonight....that's for sure. My belly is uber full after a nice dinner at Red Lobster with an old friend. Felt like a VIP. lol My friend is a regular at this location so they hooked us up. Got a bag of biscuits to bring home for Furman. The waitress comp'd the drinks and dessert. And then, as we were getting ready to head out the door...she surprised us with a take home piece of cheesecake for dessert. Imagine that! Furman was happy. I definitely gotta go on the website and fill out their survey. She went over and above.

So now, I sit here exhausted, watching my favourite soap opera before I fall asleep for sweet dreams. And let me tell you, they will certainly be sweet. I've got something super special to look forward to over the next 6 months. My husband booked our Anniversary Vacation.  OMG! OMG! 
Has me dancing and singing!!


The trip of a lifetime I am sure!!
Did I say that I am excited?
Where are we going you might wonder?  OMG! OMG!


Yup!! Sure am!!

Something that I have always always wanted to do.
I've already been through the Caribbean (minus a few stops I have yet to get to), and now ready for another part of this big ole world! With my husband!! Just the thought of where I will be on our anniversary and then on my birthday makes me want to dance!! Feeling blessed!

Certainly makes up for missing a nice vacation last year. :) We had too many things going on to travel.

That's all I will say for now but you know you will definitely read much more about my excitement in the months to come. Hell yeah!! I can't keep this excitement to myself. lol I'll bust!

Details to come!!

But thanks to our friends at Valente Travel.

Anyways...I'm off to dream and plan and dream!!  (And train during my sleep for the next race. lol)

Sweet dreams.


  1. Congrats on the time! Each time you run your time will improve. You both have something to look forward to celebrate. Yay!!!!

    1. Thanks so much. Looking forward to my time improving although Furman says i'm usually stuck in one gear. lol Either way, the 5k split was a PB for me. Now, if I can just get back in shape enough to conquer the upcoming Half Marathon I will be happy. That will definitely be a celebration.
