When I got home, after running almost six miles in 56 minutes, it occurred to me that not too long ago, six miles was a long run. This is my longest weekday run so far. I'm planning on keeping it up.
Since it was also yet another dizzy run, I had to take a couple of breaks to lean over on the side of the road to keep from falling over. This normally annoys the crap out of me, but yesterday it was lucky.
|I hope it's a sign.|
I was almost ran over by an older lady in a white car who apparently didn't think my life was very important. I attribute the fact that I'm still alive to the clovers...or, you know, because I jumped out of the way.
I was a good girl afterward and foam rolled and I don't know if it's a coincidence or not, but no pain in my left calf today! WEE!

Now for the home stuff. No actual updates until after tomorrow, but I've been decorating in my head. Since I bought the tumblers this weekend, I found some amazing place mats online. (No, I don't have a kitchen table yet. What's your point?)
My best friend's mom makes magic with a sewing machine and I asked her if she'd make me these magical place mats. I can't wait! (Never ever did I think I'd be excited about place mats :)
I'm also thinking of using stencils throughout the house (in small doses) to add some interest for cheap.
I love this one for a kitchen back splash.
|Pebbles. Reminds me of the Flintstones :)|
I saw a tutorial online on how to paint on curtains. So, buy cheap curtains and make them look expensive. Sounds like my kinda project! This pattern reminds me of the sun rising or of mountains. Great for curtains, right?

Also, I'm totally making this to go in the hallway at the top of the stairs.
|Oh, and it WILL be sweet!|
And two must-haves:
|Good stuff for the back door and hallway.|
I am also in very dire need of new running clothes. I was grossing myself out during my run yesterday from the smell of my shirt. It's a stinky time to be saving money, folks!
On another random note, my friend introduced this video to me this weekend and it cracks me up every time. It will make your day brighter, I promise.
Do you run for time or distance, or do you switch it up? Which do you like better?
Any fun home decorating ideas to share?
