I Made the News

July 7, 2011

This morning (as with almost every morning) got started with a run!


I know I haven’t recapped every run I have done this week, so here’s what I’ve been up to:

Monday – 7 miles (5 mile Freedom Run + 2 miles afterward)

Tuesday – 4 miles (Ran with my sister. I felt a little tired, but I didn’t sleep well the night before so I’ll blame it on that.)

Wednesday – 8 miles (My breathing problems started to flare up a bit.)

Thursday – 4 miles

I took it easy today. I didn’t feel up to par, but I think my body is still trying to recover from the marathon, so I might lay low tomorrow in hopes of doing a long(er) run on Saturday—possibly 11-12 miles.



After returning from my run this morning, I enjoyed a delicious bowl of Corn Chex with milk and half of a bagel with peanut butter!

Two good-old standbys!


I made the Waseca County News!

The sports section featured an article about the Freedom Run on July 4th, and they mentioned my name because I traveled from Anchorage, Alaska to Waseca, Minnesota to run the race!



For the first time since arriving in Minnesota, I had absolutely no plans for the day: I didn’t have any friends to meet up with, no pre-planned family events, instead a day of complete freedom!

So I took some pictures of the kittens romping around on my parent’s farm.

I also spent part of the day doing some serious catch-up on blog reading. This was good because I hate feeling behind.

Here are some posts/reads I really enjoyed and so might you!

– Did you know that if you have a rewards credit card (such as 3% cash back), the business that you make any charge to has to pay that 3% cash!! Here is a small business owner who just alerted me to this fee!

– I want to try making these: Vegan White Bean Butterscotch Blondies.

– Check our a a new favorite blog of mine: Cait’s Plate.

– I love Crate & Barrel but it can be pricey, but today I found out about CB2 with more moderately priced items. It is like Crate and Barrel meets IKEA!

    1. How adorable are those kittens! I just got my dad a female yellow tabby and she is so sweet. I’m a sucker for corn and rice chex. Could have them everyday.

    1. You’re famous! I love having days where my schedule is my own. They seem to happen less and less often. Adorable kittens! 🙂

    1. Aw yay! Thanks for the shout out!! 🙂 Your blog is awesome too!

      And so excited about the article – you’re totally famous!!
