This week has been pretty crazy. On Tuesday I was surfing the internet looking for running advice and any upcoming races in the area and I found out there was a race today for a 5K so I signed up. I have never done a race so I was pretty excited. I was out sick on Thursday due to a stomach bug so I was nervous about running today. Also I have stopped running outside for the last couple months because our humidity is out of control and the heat index is over 100* everyday. That being said, the race today was harder that I expected. It wasn't sunny as it was raining in some nearby areas but the heat and humidity were out of control. My goal for the run was simply to finish it and I did with a time of 37:04. I am happy with that but of course once I continue training, I'd like to get a little better time.
(nice and sweaty pic for you)
I ran the whole first mile, half of the second, and probably only the last quarter of the third mile. I was surprised at how much harder it was outside but I'm excited I did it and even more excited for the next now that I know what to expect.
On Wednesday I went to the eye doctor for an annual check up to make sure my prescription hasn't worsened and to maybe see if I could get contacts. I have been wearing glasses for about six years and have been too intimidated to try contacts. While I don't have any problems touching my eye, I was afraid how they would feel and if they got stuck up in my eyelids. Good news was that my prescription is the same and I got contacts. I love them. It is so nice to not wear the glasses, especially watching television. My only dilemma is that I have DKNY sunglasses I love with prescription lenses so I have to get some sunglasses that have normal lenses. I have been wearing some old Coach glasses but the lenses are so light and they are just not that good anymore---too worn.
I am planning a pretty lazy Saturday--heading over to my mom's in a bit to finish my craft project then dinner with a old friend I haven't seen in three and a half years. We were best friends before I moved and she was in my wedding. When I moved to Miami, we just drifted apart. I am super excited to reconnect and catch up on what's been happening in her life.
I hope everyone has an awesome weekend. I'll be back soon with outfits and more exciting posts---promise.
