Although I can randomly be very girly, I kind of hate shopping.
Dealing with horrible San Diego parking lots (or lack of), squeezing through crowds, not being able to find what you need – I just don’t find it to be the most enjoyable activity. However, lately, that has not been the case.
In case you weren’t aware, Old Navy had a 30% off of everything sale this past weekend, and they have a bunch of new dresses. Therefore, I went to Old Navy…because I absolutely love dresses…and sales (even though if you buy enough, the whole “sale” idea doesn’t make a difference).
Since I have a bunch of friends’ weddings coming up, I justified the purchase of a couple dresses. The following maxi dress is probably my favorite (and I even hemmed it a wee bit since I’m slightly short, so that means I mean business):
Moral of the story: maxi dresses — they are awesome.
Next order of business…
I have been dreading yesterday’s run for quite awhile now, but I’m happy to report that I survived the 13 miles. (You better believe I went through all the long run emotions.) The run was kind of horrible overall, but like usual after a long run, I was feeling pretty good the rest of the day…so, there’s that.
(My soaked visor shows just hard I was worked. Sorry if you think that’s gross, but running isn’t always sunshine and puppies. I’m just saying.)
I’m pretty excited that the longest run I have from now until the race (in less than 2 weeks!) is 8 miles, so it’s pretty smooth sailing from here. My time in yesterday’s run was 1:58:26 for an average pace of 9:06. I was pretty pleased with it. My overall goal with this half marathon is to beat my first (/only other half marathon) time, which was about 2 hours and 10 minutes, so I should definitely be able to do it. Woo!
Hope you all enjoyed your Easter!
