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!
