I've been seriously slacking in blogging for a LONG time now - but MF hooked me up with wifi in my living room, so I am happily couched out watching TV and blogging!!
Run 2.7 was a long run, and a race... the Scappoose Half Marathon, which you can read about here. It was freezing cold, but enjoyable. During almost every long run I say how I wish they'd come complete with bathrooms and water stops with people cheering me on. Finally I have that!! Racing for a long run is just much more rewarding I think!
Run 2.8 I can't even remember. I know I did it. I vaguely remember a lot of zigging and zagging through my neighborhood. It was dark. I think, yes, I tested a long sleeve shirt as a potential race shirt in the upcoming months.
Run 2.9, the Run to Stay Warm, was my 17th half marathon, and my fifth fastest! It was raining before the start and very cold. Once I started I warmed up and my legs felt great throughout the entire time, only stiffening a hair in the last 5K when the wind and cold picked up again.
Run 2.10 was a nice 2 mile run on Thanksgiving morning. It was rejuvenating, and a great way to start the day!
Now let's talk wedding!!!
RSVPs are slowly trickling in, and any time I get a response I get ridiculously excited! My black Friday shopping consisted of buying things for the wedding reception being held in Oregon. What might that entail? Try sequins, candles, feather boas and strobe lights! Man Friend and I have a ton of ideas, and have even worked out a tentative floor plan for the tables and dance space. MF's mom has volunteered to hook us up with table clothes made just the way we want them, too! Things are really falling into place. I can't remember if I have shared the link or not, but if you want to see the story of how we met and how the proposal went down, click here to see our official wedding website!
So that's all for now. If you'll excuse me I need to get back to planning, shopping and doing all the things that go along with creating a fabulous wedding reception! Is it April yet??
