falling behind, running ahead.

So I've obviously fallen a little behind in my posts recently, but I have at least been taking my daily outfit photos! 

On July 4th I completed my first 10K!  It was amazing.  So much fun, in fact, that now I'm planning on training for a half marathon.  I started running about 6 years ago and couldn't even make a half-mile (or more truthfuly, could barely make it from one mailbox to the next).  I was determined though and moved my training inside to a treadmill where I ran for a few years, finally able to accomplish around 3 miles.  I started running outside just 2 years ago and last fall I ran my first 5k (I believe there is a blog post on here about it somewhere).  I can't believe how far I have come!  And that I want to run even farther!

How was your 4th of July?


  1. I love outfit #17. Those shorts are too cute. Congrats on completing the 10k! That is awesome. I am starting to run so I can do a 3k. (No not as long as a 5k or 10k but it will be my first and hopefully not my last!)

  2. That's awesome! You have to start somewhere! Good luck!
