Hiding

Look closely at the photo below. Can you find me?
My husband took this photo one morning on my run and I thought it was hilarious that you could just barley see me. It is proof that I am going strong on my half marathon training schedule.
Tomorrow is my 8 mile run, it is going to be cooler...about 60 degrees! Hoping I can do it :)

I am reminded of inspiring words from my friend Jim Ellis {awakemysole}, who is running and speaking for Jesus across Iowa this year:
Running passionately...
Running purposefully...
Running with beautiful feet...
Running with endurance...
Running towards the goal...

My half marathon training schedule

My sister-in-law and I decided to run a half marathon this year. I have never ran past 5 miles before so this goal makes me nervous and excited! I found a half marathon training schedule and modified it to extend it to 18 weeks (the original schedule was 12 weeks). I also made it look really pretty :)
Any advice from you running pros out there? Let me know, I need all the advice I can get.

Journal hunt

It is a good time of year right now. The grass is turning green, tulips are popping up left and right, I can go outside more, David and I can grill out, and (drum roll please) it is time to buy a new journal! I adore journals. It think they are amazing. I wish I could have thousands of them, however, I just try to have one journal and write in it until I fill it up and then buy a new one. I am finally coming to the end of my current journal. So I am on a hunt to find the perfect journal. Exciting :)

Here is my visual list of requirements for a journal:

All this being said, do you have any ideas for me? Where do you buy your journals? Any places you would recommend? Leave a comment, and let me know!

A break from the norm

Our church hosted an overnight marriage retreat at the Hole n' the Wall Lodge in Akron, Iowa. It was nice to get away in the peace and quiet, meet new couples, learn about how we can be Godly/servant oriented spouses. Loved it. Next year, count us in for 2 nights instead of 1 night!

I've never been a "big reader". This Christmas I got an awesome Kindle Fire, I have enjoyed reading more :)
