April report and some fun stuff....

April has come and gone and I'm now into my 5th month of trying to run 1000 miles this year.  How am I doing?  In April I was rededicating myself to the project... but now in adding up the numbers, I ran .9 miles LESS than in March.  What's with that?  I did alright in making it to spin class, but Pilates is another story.  I haven't been in weeks because of end of the school year kid stuff.  Track meets, awards assemblies, concerts... am I the only one in this boat?  I'm thinking I'll get there next Monday.... after this week life should calm down a lot.  Is this 1000 mile thing really possible?  Am I dreaming that I can do it?  And now it's starting to get hot again too.

I guess I'll rededicate myself again.  Really.

Fun stuff...  I got some money for my birthday for some new clothes.  The local outdoor outfitter has a ladies night this past week... which was really a good idea - someone needs to compete with REI!  They had food (chocolate!), tables of info, and lots of great deals.  I bought a few shirts, a skirt, and, not that I really need another one (really, I don't)... a running skirt and top.  Very cute.  Half off plus 10 percent.  I had never tried a Skirt Sports skirt before... and I took it out for a test run yesterday - and wow - way comfortable!  I think I'm in love...

The top and bottom match!  I don't have any others that do!
And my kids are great to me today.  They know I love my Keens... in my rich life I will just have Keen send me a new pair every time they come out with something else.  In all the colors.  I think the kids must have thought I was wearing my pair I've had for 4 or 5 years out.  Or they were tired of the color I had an wanted something else to look at!  Aren't these cute?  (Seriously though, I don't think my original ones will ever wear out - they've been to the beach, the mountains, and everywhere in between and still look pretty new!)  I love those kids lots - there's not too many other reasons I'd sacrifice running time... but they are one of the reasons that I am willing to.....

Isnt' the brown and mint cute?  It reminds me of my favorite kind of ice cream!
