To start out this post, I’d like to play a little jam from Miss Rihanna. Just imagine she’s saying “records” instead of “dishes.”
A half marathon was on the training schedule this past weekend. Because there wasn’t an actual half marathon race in the area, I ran it on my own. And guess what…I got my PR! I’ve run 3 half marathons in my life:
- 2:23 (Madison Half Marathon: May 2010)
- 2:10 (US Half Marathon-San Francisco: November 2010)
- 2:07 (Madison Half Marathon: May 2011)
Saturday, I ran a 2:01. It’s been my goal for the past 2 years to break the 2-hour barrier, and I just can’t seem to do it! But the fact that I’ve improved my time every race gives me hope for my next attempt. I know it may not seem official because I did it on my own, but it counts to me.
Quick side note: does anyone know how to make embedded videos a smaller image in WordPress? Is it even possible?
In other news…
Did you see Brittney Griner’s dunk this past weekend? She is one (for lack of a better way to say this) BAMF.
Also, who saw the Hunger Games this weekend? And who else had tears streaming down their face when Rue died? (My hand is raised.) Well, here are some major points they left out that were in the book.
Another change in direction: I’ve never been nor have ever had a desire to travel to Dubai, but you’ve got to check out these pictures.
Hasta luego friends.
