This week I will see my son.
He got married last June and left in July for Afghanistan. We are all excited to see him.
His sisters, wife, my hubby and I have decided to have his pickup truck detailed as a little surprise.
While speaking with the man who is going to do the job I explained that we would pay to have the interior detailed only. He said he would take care of the exterior of the truck for free as a token of his appreciation for my son going overseas to protect us.
What a kind gift from a stranger to a soldier.
There are many kind and wonderful people still left in this world.
I thought you would want to hear this story.
So My goal today...here in Northern Minnesota was to get off work at 6:30 pm and get a practice 5K run in (on the tar road) being it was finally 70 degree's out. It was 30 this morning when I went to work.
My goal was to break Friday's run of 1.2 miles without stopping..then continue with a walk/run until the 3.1 miles were complete.
Well...I seemed to have messed up the "APP" I put on my phone and ended up running more than I had planned. I finally stopped after the app said I had run 25 minutes and 1.87 miles. I took a two minute walk break and went on to finish my 5K with a run 4 minutes/walk 1 minute.
Honestly....I never thought I could do that...
Now for some asprin and head to bed...
Happy Easter everyone
After work last night I was determined to run just a little longer. I had already broke my record before work by running 1.0 miles NONSTOP. So with Hubby on his bike along side me we set off for the highway.
With the wind in my face my time was a little off but I managed all the way to the highway. 1.1 miles and then turned back and got another .1 miles before taking a walk break. Total run time nonstop was 1.2 miles. Total walk/run ended up being 2 1/2 miles with another 1.5 miles in the a.m. Not to bad being I also put in a 12 hour shift.
I will continue to practice.
I hope you all have a great Easter!
