Saturday

Half

Today I ran a half marathon with my sister.  It was wonderful.  The course was absolutely beautiful!  I have run many races before, but this is the first one I've done with my sister and it was one of the best.  She's never been a "runner" before and this is the longest distance she's ever gone.  She did so great and I'm so proud of her!

Of course we had to have matching t-shirts.  So, we made them with  my Silhouette machine.  (I forgot to tell you, I got a Silhouette and I'm so excited about it!!!)  I have a feeling I could spend many hours playing around with it.  It was surprisingly really easy to figure out and the t shirts ended up looking pretty professional.  





During the last mile of the race we passed a small antique shop (we ran through the middle of a small downtown area).  Although I was tempted, I did not stop and shop but I did do a little window shopping.  As we ran by, I jokingly said to this mirror "I'm coming back for you!"  I never pass up an opportunity to look for a good deal.  Since it was so close to where the race ended, I did go back for it and want to know the best part?!?  It was $5!!  I have big plans for this guy.

And this is why I love your blog. Anyone who will slow down for a antique store in the middle of a race is "of my tribe".
