Wow... where does the time go? Okay.. got back from a power walk as I can't do Zumba tonight (boo) but horse has to have his feet trimmed.
Planning another 4 mile run tomorrow morning, then it's off to shuttle the pups to the kennel, then we are getting on a jet plane to surprise visit my BF's best friend from childhood. Should be fun!
SO.... I'll be MIA till Monday sometime...
Everyone have a GREAT weekend!

Hello all in Sparklyland!! Today is National Running Day and I celebrated with a 4.1 mile this morning!
Program: G8K W3D2
Distance 4.1 miles
time 52 minutes
average pace 10.30
temp 60 degrees
woo, this was a bit hard as the last few runs I have done I only had time for 2.2 miles! But I did it...
Oh, and I'm famous.. I'm in a Spark Blog
We are dancing tonight to a National Caller that yodels... lots of fun! Won't be doing the whole dance though as my BF has to get up uber early tomorrow. Which is probably a good thing as I'm yawning already ready!
Hope everyone has a GREAT day!

Interesting that a little too much and not enough the night before did not stop me from on Friday morning.
But two hours digging and planting a raspberry patch and weeding a huge flower bed, no and lots of had me hitting my snooze alarm way too many times so I got up way to late to get a in this morning.
Guess a body knows when it really needs it's rest eh? I was .4 miles from my estimated mileage for the month of May. Not upset considering they were all running and I did some personal bests... and if I didn't run a 5K in there, I would have run over 4 miles that day vs the 3.1... so, I know I can do it. There is JUNE!
I was going to go to the wake for my friend today and then realized just how far it is. 1 hour there and 2 hours home and it's all highway that is under construction, rush hour traffic and a huge thunder storm. um... then I thought more about it and there is only 2 people I would want to see so I called one and we talked. She even said stay home! So I will remember my friend by doing something healthy for my and will do my Curves work out tonight.
Tomorrow morning.. I'll be up early to hit the pavement NOT the snooze alarm! Later that night we have a National Caller to dance too
hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend!!
Oh goodness.. almost forgot. Sunday I went to Under Armor, they were having a sale see... I made out like a bandit!! The top left is pink and gray mesh, $12.00, bottom left red and white mesh, $8. Both of these are the typical HeatGear material. The two on the right were also $8 each and are the new feels like cotton but performs like Under Armor material. SCORE!

Okay... lots going on and nothing going on.
Recently I blogged a friend of mine passed away. Two times hit with breast cancer and two times hit with Adult Onset Leukemia, All this time we cheered her on, such a fighter.. you go Donna, you go girl!
Donna was 52. Donna has always been slender. She had been out of the hospital for 4 months since her last bout with Adult Onset Leukemia. She was doing great. Then she felt like crap. Flu like symptoms for THREE days and she died.
Donna died due to a cardio vascular disease. Her main 'tubes' were clogged. In all the YEARS she spent in the hospital with all the cancer tests, she never had a regular WELLNESS CHECKUP.
Please people... do NOT forget your wellness check ups, especially if you are in the hospital for something really scary like cancer. My lovely strong friend beat cancer 4 times only for something else that possibly could have been stopped got her instead.
And she had no will. This boggles my mind. With the 4 times she had to seek hospital attention for cancer, she would have done it. Like most people... she said she was going to and never did.
Being a survivor of any kind without a will... it's NOT as easy task. Do your will! It's not hard, it's not that expensive... get it notarized..have a file in a fire proof safe w/ the will... basically an if I die... here is what I have and what you need. Sorry to sound morbid... but this will make a huge difference to the person that is helping you when you are gone.
Going to try to get a run in tomorrow... depends on heat, etc.
Hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend and is thankful for the weekend!

boo lame title, two days in a row!
Okay. like it felt like no sleep. Strange thoughts again. What the heck is up with that? That is twice this week. grrrr I looked up 'racing thoughts' and am NOT going to say I have those, it's a mental anxiety disorder! ACK... and here I thought it was just how Lunesta advertised their sleeping aide!
So I was toying with not running cause I had no sleep, switched alarms... then felt but I HAVE to run... so switched alarms back, but did give myself an extra 1/2 hour.
I decided to mix things up a bit since I didn't have time for the full run. I reversed the hills. Wow.. what a difference!
I pretty much maintained a pace of 9:30 and when I started up the first hill, I started slowing down. I told myself, this direction, there is 3 hills to run up vs 6 and not to let the hills slow me down..
so I powered on and charged those hills! The slowed me some, but not nearly as much as they did the day before! Hills took about 10:30 pace where last Tuesday were 11:30-12:30. I'm getting stronger!!
So I am having a great day, is out, it's a Holiday weekend. Might go dancing tonight to one of our favorite callers, not 100% sure. If we don't, that's okay, cause I can use the sleep! tomorrow is a large day of moving heavy boxes for a few hours, then dinner and a play at the theater dharling.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!
