running and a winner!

Right. So, I was totally kidding the other day when I said Friday’s would be my only run day. Because I went running yesterday morning. Pretty short, only three miles, and when I got done I thought that’s it? The idea of only getting in one run a week was highly disappointing, so I may have to start throwing in a second run on Sundays and figure out a different rest day during the week.


For yesterday’s run I stayed close to home instead of driving to the Metroparks. It should be noted that the Metroparks are fairly flat while I have different levels of inclines on my home route and good goddess could I feel it. Plus I started off just a bit too fast so my pacing was off for the whole run. But I had a 14 minute average, which is better than my last few runs have been. My next 5K is three weeks a way so I definitely want to keep up with my runs and work on pacing and timing, because race day will be here before I know it!

Also, congrats to Tayla Anne who won the jar of peanut butter from Peanut Butter & Co.!

Tayla said that would want to try the Cinnamon Raisin Swirl if she won (excellent choice, if I do say so myself!) Tayla, please contact me at jill [at] theyearofthephoenix [dot] com with your mailing address so I can get your jar to you! If I haven’t heard from you within 72 hours, another winner will be chosen. Thanks to all that entered!

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend! I had a bachelorette party last night and tonight I’m going to see Finding Nemo 3D. Yes, I am a nerd and way more excited than a thirty-year-old woman probably should be, but that’s why y’all love me.

Love from the ashes,
Lady Lazarus
