Holy Cow!

It’s been forever since I’ve blogged!! Let me explain before you all de-follow me hah. Needless to say, last week was midterms, so I was studying! Then I was packing and getting my room ready (pulling everything 6 inches from the wall) and then I was driving home and spending time with my family!

Now I am back and ready to catch you up on the fun running extravaganza’s!

Thoughts on the run:

  3. This run is going by pretty fast.

  4. No one will steal my shirt here.
  5. I wonder how this looks to people driving past, as I tie my shirt around a pole.
  6. Probably looks like I’ll get lost so I’m marking my run hah.
  7. Feels so much better!! Do I look stupid wearing short sleeves and shorts in 43 degree weather?
  8. UGH I don’t want to run with my long sleeve again. I’ll tie it around my waist.
