Salem Lake 10K!

I am proud to have set a PR (Personal Record) yesterday, Sept. 26, 2009 on the Salem Lake 10K Race! My goal time was 59:59, just wanted to do it under an hour so bad...well I did it - 59:37! So my pace averaged 9:36 per mile. Eric sweetly stood in the "cold" (60 degrees) and rain (yes, it rained the whole hour, but thankfully it was just 'spitting' on us), cheering me to the end! The trail is a gorgeous loop around Salem Lake (obvious based on the name, huh?) - the Lake is 7 miles around, so it's the perfect 10K (6.2 mi) setting.

My knee is a bit sore today, but I am happy to say it did not bother me at ALL during the race! Praise the Lord for answered prayer!

The rainy, drizzly day was the perfect afternoon to recover by snuggling on the couch with a few movies! I'd say it was the perfect Saturday! :)

*As you can see on the Race's logo - there were 30 K runners out there with us too...let me tell you, they were amazing and INTENSE to say the least! It inspired me to run faster!



So, now that it is official that my blog has fallen off the face of the planet...its about time to turn that around! :)

I have finally uploaded all my pictures onto Shutterfly (b/c there was just no way I could get them all onto here, one by one!) Plus, since there are over 500 pictures, you can browse at your leisure...there is a quiz at the end to make sure you got them all...JUST kidding!

I am sooo thankful for how wonderful our trip was and am happy to have the memories on film! :)

I am working on a photobook (as I am so not a scrapbooker!) on shutterfly as well and will link it to our site when it is finished! :)


Chris' Graduation!

So...this is embarrassingly long in coming...but I want to honor and congratulate my "little" brother, Chris, for graduating from Wake Forest this past May!! Chris, I was so privileged to live near you three of the four years and I'm so happy I have at least one more year with you living in Winston-Salem! I love you and am SO PROUD of you for your accomplishments at Wake! Enjoy basking in the glory of being done with your undergrad!! WOOHOO!
