Happy Monday, everyone, a welcome to the start of Holy Week. I am excited for Easter happenings, but I am also thrilled because I only have 3 weeks left as an intern! :O
This weekend I behaved impulsively and said goodbye to inches of my hair…
I have always wanted really long hair, but I had to face the truth that it just wasn’t very healthy and was starting look bad. I am hoping this experience will motivate me to take better care of my hair. I am going to start with trying to not wash it every single day. Anyone have any advice for keeping thin, fine hair beautiful?
In other exciting news, I completed the 10 miler race on Saturday with my friends!
The race went great. I was feeling good up until about mile 7 when my knees started hurting, which slowed me down a bit. I finished at 1:38 (~9:48 average- pretty great for me!)
I want to keep running, but I am not sure my body likes running for more than an hour. If it’s not my knees, it’s my ankles that start hurting. I’d definitely do this race again, but don’t see myself taking long-distance running seriously any time soon. I’ll stick with 3-6 mile runs for now. That said, a year ago I never would’ve thought 10 miles was possible for me… it’s so true that running is largely mind over matter.
We celebrated as I always do- with bagels!
Later that night we had a small get together with some friends for Terry’s birthday.
She made cinnamon tortilla chips to dip in it and it was a delightful combo!
I made a pineapple upside down cake for dessert. Sadly it was not from scratch, but I think it still turned out pretty good! I used another one of Sally’s recipes.
And then it was back to business Sunday.
What is something fun you did this weekend?
