Catch-up Day

July 27, 2011

Today was the second day in a row I ran 10 miles, and my legs were definitely feeling it today.

I stilled managed to put my mind over the matter and get all 10 miles done in 1:24.

I am really liking my new shoes! Saucony Ride 4

They have ample room in the toe box, they hug my foot nicely, and they have the perfect amount of cushioning for me.

After my run, I took my aunt to the airport so she could catch her flight back to Minnesota.

It was great having her here! I saw and did things I haven’t done since living here:

Potter Marsh, the beautiful flowers downtown, and the Wells Fargo Alaska Native Muesum

Denali National Park

Cruise through Resurrection Bay

Afterwards, I met up with my friend Katie and did a little shopping.

Even if I am not in need of a new pair of running shoes, I always have to stop and check out the new models.

This afternoon I have been busy playing catch-up:

– cleaning

– doing dishes

– organizing

– reading blogs

– laundry

I love order in my life. I get a little anxious when the apartment isn’t picked up, I have a long cleaning list, or things aren’t in their proper place.

But I feel better tonight! 🙂

Last week, I mentioned that Swanson Health Products gave me a $25 gift certificate to spend at their online store. I reviewed two of the products already (Vita Coco and Burt’s Bees Lip Balm), but I also picked out this hand soap.

Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Hand Soap – Lemon Verbena

Overall, I liked the hand soap, but I didn’t love it. A lot of the time, whether or not I like a hand soap comes down to the scent, and I just wasn’t a fan of this scent. Don’t get me wrong, it was a horrible scent, it just wasn’t my favorite. (I’m not sure this is always a good reason, but it is what it is.)

I do love that it is an eco-friendly soap, biodegradable, and contains naturally-occuring essential oils.

And don’t forget. . . .

Craig had to work late tonight, so I’m chilling by myself. I’m sad because we haven’t spent hardly any time together for the last 5 weeks!! Hopefully he’ll be back soon! 🙁

    1. I like Mrs. Meyer’s Geranium scent. Try that one!

    1. I normally love the lemon verbena scent, but I can see how it can go wrong. I am the same way with mess in our place. Once it gets to a certain point, my stress levels go up and I HAVE to go into an organization frenzy to feel better. This is not easy when the place is three levels to clean!

    1. I do the same thing when I go into stores that have running shoes. I always have to look.

    1. I wear Saucony Ride 4’s too! LOVE them!!!
