Three Things Thursday

1. I have a run this weekend.  Peaks to Prairie Adventure race.  I do the run portion, which is 9.3 miles.  I have to admit I have started to stresss about it a little, so while I was out running today I decided I would come home and read the recap from last year's race to get an idea about how my splits went.  I DIDN'T include them in the recap.  FAIL!!! I only said some vague things like kept it under seven minute miles for the first four miles.  HOW MUCH UNDER!!  I need to know.  and I got a new Garmin since then.  The stats are not stored any longer.    From now on I am going to I have decided. 

1.5  Deciding what to wear should be easy.  I think it is going to be in the low 30s for my part of the run which for me means tights and a long sleeve shirt.. or maybe I will wear a bright tank and my YMX bolero.  I get so many compliments on this bolero.

guess who got a self timer app on her iPhone, now I apparently think I can fly
1.5.5  EDIT!  HOLD THE BOAT!!  I was able to find the splits in my computer.  YAY!  I feel so excited AMPED up now.  I feel like I can come close to the time or maybe.. better.  If the wind isn't working against me.  
2. I took my daughter and a friend of hers to some of my old stomping grounds when I was a kid. The creek below my parents house. 

 We had fun "adventuring" and fishing moss out of the creek. I also found a tick crawling on me knee as we were leaving.  Sorry no picture, I just wanted the little bugger gone.

 3. Race photos from the last race I did.  They didn't get very many photos really.  Here I am getting ready for the race beforehand, whatever my sister was telling me must have been slightly amusing

 and we're off.

 Yup those were my race pictures.  I love it that there are kids on front of me. Makes me feel fast. 
I guess those kids haven't learned yet that you don't wear your race shirt to the race.


  1. You are so pretty! I love that race pic of you! Best of luck on the race!

  2. WHOO HOO! for finding last years splits! That adventure race seriously sounds like fun.

    Self timer app on the iphone?! I need to find that.

    I love seeing photos of Montana. It looks so incredibly peaceful.

  3. Man your quads are inspiring sista. I am doing squats and lunges like NOW.

  4. Best of luck in your race...YAY for finding your race splits! Love the pictures! :0)

  5. Love the race pictures! Your hair is so long. Silly kids...when will they learn?!

    Glad you found your splits. Mine are all saved, but sometimes it takes me a while to locate them.

    Love the photo of you and your self timer too. Looks like you are figuring out your new iphone.

  6. Yay for finding the splits! I always look at old recaps before a race for the same reason... and DM logs, recent race splits... I'm a number whore I guess. A girl's gotta know! :)

  7. In Boston, I ran next to a Team Beef guy for a while. A lot of people write their names on their shirts, so you would hear calls of "Kristy!, Steve!, Alex, BEEF!!!" It was pretty funny! I pulled up next to him and asked if he was from Montana, but he was from New York. I guess I didn't realize there were team Beefs everywhere!

  8. Good luck this weekend! Love all the pics, and yuck on the tick. I would freak out!

  9. Best of luck for the Peaks to Prairie, it sounds like fun!

  10. Have a great race this weekend!!
    As always love your pics!
    And the Iphone has a timer? How has this escaped my craptasic photog skills? Shameful.

  11. I loved exploring around the creek around my parents house growing up. We used to walk up and down it for hours!! They've since moved, so my kids will ever get to explore that creek (but will- and have- explored others of course...). I'm glad you found your splits!!! Woohoo! Kick some butt this weekend!!!


Because I love hearing from you all!
