I promised you I'd never give up

After my run Saturday I busted it in the garden...looks really good, if I do say so myself. I wish I could post pics...but still no news on the camera.

Sunday I worked in the basement and got it all cleaned out and ready for a pending garage sale.

I hoped to get a run in on Monday...didn't happen. The day slipped away from me and before I knew it we were headed to our neighbors for a get together. A friend of theirs had the coolest Margarita maker...made the best "home made" margarita's I have EVER had and had and had!

Monday morning I did find, and fall in love with, a new scent from Bath and Body Works...called Coconut Lime Verbena. I was trying to find a scent to help me hold onto the feel of the Turks trip...and this scent does the trick...it just makes me happy!

Today was another day on the winding road...

Went to the funeral of my friend G's 23 year old son. So sad...so hard.

Spent the day with my Dad...he put his car in the shop this morning and I ran around with him all day. We went to the funeral together. I think in some ways that made it easier. I know I felt blessed that we were together.

HATE to complain about this b/c I know that rain messed up several of my blog buddies plans this weekend (esp. JOHNNY!) but it is SO dry here and I am having to water the garden like crazy to keep the plants from drooping! So I got home this afternoon and watered.

Then I went for a run. Due to anxiety about my upcoming 10K I decided to sign up for a 5K this weekend. So, tonight I decided to see if I could run three miles in 36 minutes...12 minute miles.

Well...

Mile 1: 11:19 71% av HR
Mile 2: 12:34 77% av HR
Mile 3: 11:53 82% av HR

YEA I DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday is usually my strength training day so I hit the free weights for a little bit after I ran and worked my arms out a little bit. THEN I went home and ate the rest of my pineapple pizza and pigged out on peppermint patties...

If it makes you happy
It can't be that bad

my family got me a blender (aka margarita maker) for mother's day. at first i wasn't so sure about an electric kitchen gift, but the margaritas were really good!

great job on the 5k test run, molly! you're gonna be fine at your race!

i'm so very sad to hear about your friend's son's death. you are right, it is so very sad - there are no appropriate words, but i'm thinking about you all.

I'm glad to hear someone else has a pathological fondness for peppermint patties. I could eat an entire bag if given the chance. :D

You're going to rock the 5k this weekend--we expect a full race report!!!

Hey congrats! I need to get the wife out on the road sometime. I'll use you as inspiration for a 5K.
