A little color

It was a little rainy and blah outside so I thought I'd go find a shirt that was different than my usual black or white. I ended up with a pink champion shirt that I found at Target on the sale rack.
I like it! I still can't get over the fact that I can wear a medium shirt. It's nuts! Last year I was trying to fit into an X-Large. I love that I can put one on and not have rolls showing through. Granted, I still have some rolls, you just can't see them as well through the shirt.  Hahaha!
I love that my arms aren't huge in them either. I can bend my arms without it feeling like I'm cutting off circulation.
It was pretty wet and rainy outside. I've never really ran in the rain before and I don't know if you'd count this as rain cause it was more of a light drizzle, but it was pretty nice. I can't wait until its warm outside and raining it'll be fun to run in that. Let's just hope it's not raining during the marathon in June.

I was looking at the weather this week in Delta, UT where my race is on Saturday and all week it's sunny and then on Saturday they they're forecasting rain! Rain! Can you believe it...rain on Saturday and then for the next 5 days more sun. What's up with that? They'd better be wrong, I want a nice sunny run on Saturday!

Today's run was nice. I started out running, but then I was feeling really sore right below my shins, so I walked quick for about 5 minutes and then picked back up the pace and finished feeling good. My thighs are a little sore, but nothing to complain about.

I'm going to bed early and waking up early to do my 3 miles. So far so good this week!

So, something I noticed when I ran today....I noticed that I have a better feeling towards running when I get it done early in the morning, but when I wait to do it later in the day I get so frustrated with running. You'd think I'd get out there and go in the morning knowing that I love running when I do it early. lol

OH! I forgot....I'm looking for a good jacket that would work well for running in the rain. You guys have any ideas?

love the new shirt! A little bit of bright color can brighten up a rainy day =) and congrats on all the lost sizes! As far as the tattoo goes...its going to be small on the side of my foot (like under/behind the ankle bone around the heel areas). I want to do a wing (like the ones on the track shoe logo...the hermes winged shoe) with Heb. 12:1 written somewhere on it...and i'd really like to incorporate a shamrock in there


Congrats on the medium!! I feel the same way. Especially when I pick up an xlg shirt (now I'm a small) and think, "wow this used to be tight!"

beautiful pics!

The pink is so cute on you!
I have a NIKE jacket that I love. Checkout their website. I bet they'll be blowing out their jackets soon as spring approaches.

LOVE being able to wear a medium. :) Unfortunately, I have not had luck with rainwear. I pretty much gave up! Good luck!
