“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.”

First BIG purchase for running!

So I finally ordered one of these babies...

I am SOOOOOOOOOO excited!!  I have been wanting one for so long and saw that it was on sale today with FREE shipping, so I couldn't pass it up.  The hubby and I will just have to live off sandwiches for the rest of the week.  :)

I had a GREAT weekend!  Got to hang with my bestie all weekend.  We did a lot of damage as always :)  First we had some yummy Orange Leaf yogurt.  I love love love this place.  I cannot wait until they build one closer to my house.  This time I got red velvet yogurt with some festive Easter m&m's and chocolate chips.  Heaven in a cup.

And then we went shopping.  I got some running shorts and some more jeans.  I am happy to say I am down another size!!!  I cannot believe that I am way out of the double digits.  I think the last time I was out of the double digits I was in 4th grade. 

Today I went fishing with the guys.  And I caught 3 fish.  Donnie didn't catch any.  Poor baby.  I guess fishing is just in my blood.  Both my dad and grandpa are like hardcore fisher men.  Dad used to do a lot more than he does now.  He set out nets and everything.  I don't get to go that often, but when I do I always have good luck!

That's me and my man :)  Oh and I forgot to report about his game Friday.  They lost again, BUT it was very close and a VERY good game.  I am still proud and I don't care if they win or not, he is out there doing something and being active.  Here are some pictures from the game....

The bestie and I :)     

Me and Mom!
Donnie's back haha.. He's number 22!

Did my long run Saturday and it was HOTT.  I am going to have to get up early for my weekend runs from now on.  It was a killer 5 miles.  The heat slowed me down a little bit, but I made it in about 54 minutes.  I am soooo excited about the 10K next weekend.  Maybe my new garmin will be in by then!!

Have a great week!!

What was one of your first big purchases for running/fitness??
-A Garmin Forerunner 405!!!!

What outdoors activities do you like to do other than running?
- Fishing and swimming for sure.  I love being  by the water.  I think I was a fish in my past life.


  1. You will LOVE your Garmin. I just bought a 305 a couple months ago and it is so useful for training and to give you an accurate idea of how far and how fast you've gone.

    Congrats on a smaller pant size! I don't think I've ever been a single digit before. Like seriously, the smallest size I can recall wearing in my lifetime is a 12, and I was probably 9 years old.

  2. Where & how much did you find your Garmin! I want one!!!
