I did it!!!

Yesterday, I completed my goal of running 10 miles! I did it at a grandma's pace but finished in 2:33. My first 5 miles was with a tailwind and I did it in 1:12. Coming back was with a head wind and it totally slowed me down and I felt like my whole body was drying out! I left my water bottle in the car! Bad plan! After I was done, I limped into the house, had a glass of milk, an apple and a banana to recover and covered my legs in various frozen vegetables. Then I showered and got ready for the Nash group Easter Extravaganza! I took my 24 Hour salad (marshmallow fruit salad) and there was beer can chicken, ham, spicy roast beef, mashed potatoes, cheesy potatoes,green beans, sliced pineapple. For dessert, there was cheesecake, apple pie and something else. I only had cheesecake. I went home about 10, iced again and went to bed.

Friday: Since I won't be going to the Chemistry Banquet on Friday because I'm going to see Papa Roach instead, Erin and I dressed up and went to the GPSA Soiree. It was fun! there was plenty of light fare and desserts and water/punch. We danced to the Fabulous Kingpins all night and then went out to the bar because we weren't ready for the night to be over since we were dressed up.
Me and Erin all snazzed!

Saturday: I was up at 8 and out the door at 8:45 to go work the WSU Outdoor Track Meet. It was a beautiful day but was a little windy, so it was a little chilly. I worked the javelin and did not get stabbed with one! I guess WSU has the nation's leading female javelin thrower because she gets to wear a black track outfit to signify this. I though that was pretty cool! Here is my view from the javelin.

After the track meet, I was a little sun and wind burned and went home, ate my free lunch, and took a nap on the couch. I got up and got ready to go to the McNair Banquet and Stole Ceremony. It was great seeing these scholars get ready for their next chapter of their journey and made me hope/think about finishing next year and seeing where I will end up! It's exciting but kind of scary at the same time!

Now, off to work so I can graduate! :)
