Rudolph Run 5K recap

Last Friday night, I participated in my first 5K. I know, I'm crazy because some of you are thinking I did this backwards. Running 4 half marathons before even doing a 5K. But I'm glad I've ran 4 half marathons before because 3.1 is nothing compared to 13.1! Well, my only goal was to try to run as much as I could (seeing that I haven't been running enough, this was going to be tough) and finish under 40 minutes. Well, I did it and I used my new Christmas present as well :)

December 1st

Happy December, Y'all!

I'm sitting here on my couch in my sweats watching the CMA Country Christmas special on TV while my Christmas tree is lit and having some hot chocolate. This is much more relaxed than how I started the day. Apparently the power went off for a bit last night and my alarm clock didn't have a battery back up. I woke to the buzzing sound of my mom calling me, saw my alarm that read 6:55, my icon for my alarm was off and then I looked at my phone and it said 7:15. YIKES! I usually get up around 6, and get to school between 7:30-7:45. I was suppose to take a shower this morning but that went out the window. I pulled my hair in a low pony tail and added a cute bow headband to try to hide the yucky hair. Good thing I live 5 minutes from my school because I made it there with 5 minutes to spare at 8:10 this morning. Whew...

I got home this afternoon and took a quick run. I only went a little over a mile. Tomorrow I run my first 5k!
I'm running with my friend Emily and her co-worker Tonya. I am very excited and am just going to have fun! I will post pictures and race results sometime this weekend! We have lots of things coming up but I want to still regularly post, so I'm going to try to come up with a fun link up starting December 14th. I want to do a fun 12 days of Christmas post with a different theme each day. Some of the days will include Holiday Home tour (inside one day, outside another day), best Christmas gifts as kids, Favorite Christmas movies, Favorite Christmas songs, Christmas traditions, favorite Christmas recipes, Christmas cookies, Ornaments, Christmas Crafts, Your Christmas list this year. Let me know if you would be interested in joining in on the fun!
