Three Things Thursday

1. As I was running yesterday I kept noticing all these purple flowers in the ditch that seemed to match my shirt so I gave in to temptation and tried to get a picture with them.  It was harder than I thought since they were short and I didn't want to pick them.  My dog wondered what the hay I was doing sitting in the ditch and kept trying to give me kisses.
Not a bad picture of me and my little pooch, but doesn't quite do what I wanted it to.

2. Yesterday was long run day... and I worked at keeping my pace SLOW. So hard sometimes, but I had a pretty good speed workout the day before so it was easier than normal. My goal is close to 9 minute miles.

3.  My sister in law sent me this after staying with her family for a couple days.  I am a morning person, she sleeps in a little more usually.  Of course you could reverse it, I think it is torture to stay up until 10pm.
4. (oops)(Three things Thursday, four things, whatever, it's my blog) I haven't had my hair trimmed since February.  I could never have a high maintenance hair cut. I have an appointment on the first day of school! so ready for a trim.  This is the longest my hair has been in a long time.

The other exciting thing is the gal who is cutting it used to be my hairdresser 14 years ago, but then she got married and moved and I have been drifting a lot since then.  I found Carol again, she is back. I hope she is as good as I remember!

I hated my last hair cut although it didn't grow out too bad, so this next one surely has to be better.


  1. Don't you think it's harder to run slower and steady than it is to run fast?

    You have the most beautiful hair!

  2. All my runs are at slow long pace these days LOL What's speed work, I sure I hope I can remember how to push soon!
    That pic with Cola is great :)
    Don't cut too much of that beautiful hair!


Because I love hearing from you all!
