Don’t worry, it all melted into a slushie during the day. I’m planning to run (weather permitting again!) a 5k this Sunday. The Run for Haiti 5k in Reston, VA. I ran this same race 2 years ago, so i’m excited to attempt a course PR! Sunday is supposed to be cold, but dry, so I gotta take the chance, be like Nike and Just Do It! Cross your fingers and hope the stars align!

Aaaand since I missed it, happy St. Patrick’s day! One day i’ll get my life together and blog on a more consistent basis, but for now, retroactive posting it is 🙂 On the 17th we were given some pretty nice kelly green Gold’s Gym shirts to wear.

#2 Fun Fact- My hair grows really slow.  I cut my hair really short in 2011 and have been growing it out since. It was not fun running with short hair…
