This weekend we celebrated my Boo‘s upcoming Sweet Sixteen by going to a painting studio with a few of her besties.  Although the real artists from the studio had our canvases already outlined and ready for us to paint, it was hard work and not at all as easy at they made it look!  It was so much fun though pretending we were all artistic and Picaso-like.

I seriously heart these girls!  <3

And no birthday celebration would be complete without a late night trip to the Waffle House.

Moving on….today I ran 3.2 miles….eh, hem…why yes, yes I did run a 5K today.  Boo Ya!

I know to most of you may be thinking, huh?  3.2 miles?  Really.  I can run that during my lunch break….with my eyes closed…in heels.

But because I’ve been struggling with knee and leg pain, it’s been forever since I’ve been able to run even that distance!  Actually, it’s been since September 2011 (before our cruise)!

So needless to say I’m quite happy about it.  Can you tell?

Time:  35.:10
Average Pace:  11:00
Splits:  1-10:48; 2-11:09; 3-11:09; 4-11:04

Hope you have a great week!

      I know! I can’t believe she is growing up either! I’m trying to deny it; it helps me cope! 😉

  2. Great job with your run! Those paint nights are sooo much fun and you can’t go wrong with a trip to Waffle House!
