Still Slow....

Not mentally. Literally, I am slow. At running. But, check out that 7:14 best pace (who cares if it was going down hill-- it still counts!).

Please note this is Gertrude the Garmin's first blog appearance. I am still loving her like crazy and trying to give her frequent attention.Maybe I should stop eating foods like cheesy homemade potato soup to become a faster runner....I will say 1 week down on the no sweets and I am still making it--haven't robbed a grocery store to wipe out the candy aisle or anything like that. I feel like that's pretty big, right?This is another one of my new found friends--Body Glide. After my long run (okay, so 8 miles isn't that long when you are looking at 13.1) on Saturday I had some major chaffing going on. Wish I had my body glide prior to that run. Oh well. You live and learn.Here is a sneak peak of a BIG surprise that is coming....stay tuned for more details. I know you are on the edge of your seat.Well, I know I won't be winning any awards at the Country Music Marathon but my hopes are high for my March Madness brackets. Watch out people, I came in 2nd place beating all the boys (or all but 1) and am looking for redemption this year to be the winner! My bracket name is "Hoops! I did it again!". I'm so cool, I know.And just because I am random today, I thought I would end with a cute picture of our recent birthday girl and her husband at dinner. Cute pic!


  1. Good God that soup looks delicious. Do you think it would ship well? Pack that sombrero too, if you can. Thanks!

  2. Haha! Yeah, sure! I will steal the sombrero from the Mexican restaurant just for ya! ;)

    P.s. the soup is suppperr easy and I can give you the recipe if you want!
