Easy run, Super drawing talent, and some more Q&A answers!

 I wanted to start by giving a shout out to my friend BranDee who is doing her FIRST EVER race this weekend.  She is doing the 3k at the same race I am doing the 10k.  She has a blog called Kickin Up Dirt, check it out!  Her youngest daughter is my daughter's buddy.

 Happy Friday everyone!  This was me yesterday.  I was supposed to do an easy 4 mile run, but it felt so good to be outside I threw in an extra mile and did some sprints mixed in just for fun.  Hopefully it won't have my legs too tired for the 10k I am doing Saturday morning.  My daughter picked out my outfit here.  I think she did pretty good.   You might or might not notice I take a lot of my running pictures in this spot.  It is because there is a great spot to put my camera and set the self timer to take pictures.  Since doing the same pose over and over gets a little boring I like to throw in some of these poses. 

Creative I know, I just wish my dog would get a little more into it instead of just staring at me like I am crazy or something.  It is like he is saying.  "Hey Mom are you done already?  Can we go running now? You are so weird sometimes"  Yes I do feed my dog, a lot.  He is just a ribby dog I guess.  He has also been wormed.

I am so excited for the 10k Saturday.  It has been a month since my last race.  I have a 5 mile race next weekend so hopefully my legs will be recovered enough by then.
My car has been in the shop for 2 weeks now I should be getting it back tonight which is GOOD!  I have been driving a money sucking pickup in the meanwhile and while I love driving it around and feeling like a badass, it is sucking my wallet dry.  I don't know how people can afford to drive them all the time. 


 Makes a lot of sense then when you look at my poses and the crazy ones my kids tend to give me!

 My kids seem to think I am some sort of Van Gogh and have been making me draw them pictures to hang on the walls in their rooms.  Here is a small sampling of my work. Stick cowboys, yes that is a stick horse also.
 And stick cowgirls and princesses for my daughter.
 And finally here is some more questions!

if you won the lottery today, what would you do tomorrow? I would buy a big ranch in Montana  and then go for a trip around the world with a  nanny.  How much was in this lottery anyway?  Then I would quit my job, buy new running shoes and look for some good causes to donate to if I wasn't broke by now. guilty edible pleasure? Cake guilty non-edible pleasure? Blogging, reading other blogs and writing my own. what were you like in high school? what activities did you do, you know, for college application purposes :)  National Honor Society, Class Vice President, President of the FFA  chapter, BPA, track., captain of the cheerleading squad, 3rd in my class.  Yep a little bit of a geek!  would you rather live in antarctica, where you can only go outside 15 mins a day, or afghanistan? \This is a hard one!  I don't know!  If it was somewhere safe in Afghanistan where I could run and help out locally, I guess I would go there.  Antarctica does not sound like my cup of tea either.
That is all for today!  Tell me what you are doing this weekend, any races!  What super drawing talents do you possess?
