Night out = SUCCESS!! 10 miler = SUCCESS!!

Oh my goodness we had such a great time on our night on the town. We had a nice dinner at a steak place and then we went to another bar and hung out for a bit and then we went to see the band around 9:15. The opener came on and he was pretty good then Jason Boland came on at 10:30 and played until 12:30. He was GREAT!! We had several friends there and that was fun. When he was about to quit I looked at J and said "I don't want it to be over". I just didn't want the night to end. We got home and in bed around 2 and we slept until, drum roll please...11:45, yes that is almost NOON!! It was heaven!! Then we had a great rest of the weekend. It was busy but a lot of fun.

I did my 10 mile run on Sunday actually. It went well. The fact that I started it and finished it was the best part. My legs were getting sore towards the end but I made it and pushed until the end. Thank the lord for IPODS!! Seriously, those help the time go by so much better. Man, I can't believe I ran 10 miles. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would ever even consider that much less WANT to do it.

This coming weekend I am going to Little Rock to do the marathon relay with some friends. I am really looking forward to it. I am resting my legs today then I will do 4 miles on Tuesday and 3 miles on Wednesday then just rest my legs until Sunday when the run is.

Congrats on the 10 miler. 10 miles is no easy feat so you should be very proud of yourself. Good luck with the relay!

I am glad you had a good time and congrats on the run! Woo hoo!

One idea for making runs a little more entertaining w/ the help of your ipod is to listen to audiobooks. I have tried that recently and it really helps me pay attention to that a lot. especially if the story is interesting. Have a great night!
