I got up early today to run an easy 5 mile. I love running first thing in the morning. It seems so peacefull with the sun just coming up, knowing it's a new day and I have it all in front of me to enjoy. I kept the pace just under 9 minute miles. I have a 5k tomorrow so I didn't want to over do it too much. Tomorrow for the first time since I get to run with a friend from high school that I used to run cross country with. She now lives about 4 hours away and I don't see her very often except on Facebook. Back in the day our cross country coach called us Mario and Luigi. I was Luigi. :) We both ran cross country and also did long and triple jump in track. We did all of our runs together. I really miss having someone to run with like that.
I am contemplating doing a ten day sugar free challenge that I found on another blog, but I can't find the link because I also lost that in the great Blogger vacation, so if anyone knows where it is could they please tell me! Ever since I rad about the challenge I have been watching my sugar intake and am a little blown away at how much I eat. MMM jelly beans, chocolate, cake,, can I say goodbye for ten whole days. Sure I can! It's only ten days right! Hope everyone is having a great Saturday!
Have you ever gone on a sugar free challenge?No I love sugar, that being said maybe I love it a little too much! Chewy fruity candy is my favorite, followed by chocolate and nearly any kind of cake. I heart cake.
How hard was it?
and lastly here is a picture of my wild little outside cat Splash 2 and her litter of babies out in the hay. She wasn't very impressed with me invading her nest, or that the kids kept reaching in to pull out kittens. She moved them the next day. I would call her my barn cat, but we don't have a barn yet!
