Six Miles

The mileage is really increasing on my training plan. I am now 3 months and 4 days away from my marathon. This is going to be hard. But my cute new dress made getting out this morning somewhat easier. And the fact that I bought a new jacket on Saturday made it even better. My friend called it "white," but I call it "clear," because you can see right through it. The only drawback I can see so far is the fact that it sticks to my skin when I am sweaty. It was totally stuck to my arms by the time I was done with my six miles this morning.

I have too big of a day today. From right now until probably 8 o'clock tonight. I have two meetings at work where I have to give presentations. I have a meeting with my boss, which I have come to see as "show and tell," where I bring all the cool things I have done in the last week and show her. I have a doctor's appointment across town at 4 p.m. and then I need to go to the grocery store. I need to make a full meal tonight to bring to a friend (with cancer) tomorrow. She asked for a lemon curd tart, so I am thrilled to be making that as well as a meal consisting of I don't even know what yet!

Oh, it's a big day, but I am a big girl, and I can do it! With God's Grace.

Sounds like a full day of service in many ways--to your work, your friend, your fellowship and you. Awesome.

You can!

You've inspired me to get back on the treadmill (it's much too hot to run outside).

have a great day!

Your busy day got me to smile, and it got me tired. Good activities you do...and with enthusiasm, it sounds like.
