I found the chairs to go with my new table!
The Princess, O’Baby and I actually went to PB and put different chairs next to the table I want to get. Turns out we really liked the ladderback chairs, which were the same stain as the table. We wished that the chairs were available in black, and when we checked the internet, our wish was granted – black was only available online. So the plan is to take Hubby to visit the table this weekend, open a PB card, and get 10% off our order. It takes two to three weeks to be delivered. Sweeeet.
I ran again today. I did 2.75 miles all at once! It took me 31 minutes and 45 seconds to do, but I did it. The first five minutes were brutal, and I thought I wouldn’t make it at all. Once I got past that, though, it seemed to just get easier and easier. I probably could have gone farther, but I thought better of it. This is a new personal best for me!
Where do I go from here? I think I’ll start upping my speed a little at a time. I realize that running will be much harder when I do it on the bike trails, so I better get in shape. I can’t wait until spring, when I can get out in nature again. The warm sun on my skin, the breeze in my face, the creek by my side. I even look forward to powering up the hills, though they may kill me.
Spring just can’t come soon enough.
