Treadmill Half-Marathon

Happy Sunday morning friends!

I am happy to report that Katie seems to be doing better today *crossing fingers!* We didn't have to get up in the middle of the night for fever medicine and as of now, she has barely a low-grade temp. She DOES, however, have an awful cough :-( The little princess slept until 1030am, guess she needed her beauty sleep ;-) I'm praying she continues to improve today!

Since we couldn't go to church today, I scheduled myself a half-marathon on the treadmill this morning. Yep 13.1 miles on the ol' 'mill...finished in 2 hrs. 3 mins. and 9 seconds. Yippee!! It felt great to run so long this morning. We have absolutely glorious weather right now, so it's a shame that I couldn't do it outside but what can ya do...it was great anyway!

I thought I may put in a movie or watch some shows online during my run this morning, but I never had to. I plugged in my iPhone and played some oldies over and over and over again. Funny how new music makes the miles go faster, and can put some spring in your step! Here's what I played this morning:

  • Here Comes the Sun - The Beatles
  • This Will Be (An Everlasting Love) - Natalie Cole
  • Let's Get Together - Hayley Mills
  • L-O-V-E - Nat King Cole
  • There She Goes - The La's
  • Jack and Diane - John Mellencamp
  • Hurts So Good - John Mellencamp
  • R.O.C.K. In The U.S.A. - John Mellencamp

Don't judge ;-) Do you recognize the link between the first 5 songs?

The Parent Trap!

I love love love the older version, I remember watching it as a kid, and I will watch Lindsey Lohan's 1998 version anytime. In fact, that's what Katie and I were watching last night when I was making my playlist for this morning. I love the songs and they certainly kept me moving this morning! As far as the last 3 go, well, I heard "Jack & Diane" on the radio the other day and it reminded me of high school and so that led me to download some other faves. BTW, you runners out there, "R.O.C.K. In The U.S.A." has a great running beat and I must have replayed that song alone a million times!

So it's been a great start to the day! I hope yours is looking as beautiful wherever you are! God Bless!

xoxo

Hey! Have you thought about going to the Scripture Memory Verse Celebration? My BFF Joni and I are going...and I wanted to tell you if you are thinking about going I don't want to miss the chance to meet in person and hug your neck! Hope you are well and that your little one is better. Sara

Was just about to leave a comment when I read Sara's comment. PLEASE come to the Scripture Memory Verse celebration! I am going to just be getting back from Singapore with my husband on the 23rd (which also happens to be my birthday) so it looks like I'm going to miss out. I hate that..........because I also want to meet you in person and hug your neck!

Maybe we'll get back early enough so I can at least see you before we leave town.
