1. I ran 19 miles. 19 miles! New distance PR. It took me nearly 4 hours. I was going pretty dang slow and my course was hilly so I took a couple walking breaks up the hills in the last 5 miles. And the remnants of Hurricane Isaac were threatening to hit so I didn't pause my Garmin like I normally do for walk breaks. So my average pace ended up being 12:24 per mile. Yikes. There's part of me that is pretty worried about trying to do this faster for the actual marathon. But I got my 19 miles done. So that was pretty awesome.
|The rain started pouring pretty much right after I got in my car after I was done.|
3. The Doctor Who season 7 premiere was yesterday. I was pretty dang excited. I wore my Doctor Who shirt.. My dad made margaritas. It was awesome. Molto Benne!
|Margaritas and Doctor Who. Two of my favorite things. Sorry for the bad iphone photo.|
5. I found an Army wife on twitter. She is my age, has a husband that is also deployed, and graduated Ranger school last year too. He is also deployed from Fort Lewis like James and she is in a different state for the deployment with family (like me). Her husband is getting back about a month after James does. We're already planning on being friends. :) But anyway, her super-cute baby girl just turned 1 yesterday. Another reason for a great day.
6. Since I ran on Saturday morning instead of Sunday, I got to go to church on Sunday morning (instead of Saturday night like I've been doing when I have a long run). All my favorite people go on Sunday morning, so I was pretty excited to go for the first time in a while. AND I had time to dress up a little more. So I told my friend Sarah that she should dress up a little more too.

Sorry if you follow me on twitter. This has kind of already all been tweeted. But I decided to do a quick blog post about it all anyway.
God is good. All the time.
