Three Things Thursday

1. I got my Virtual 5k medal in the mail from Kayla from her Beat the Heat 5k - It's super cute! I loved doing this race and the medal rocks. It's making me want to host another one of my own!

The medal and a cute thank you note
2. I finally dragged my booty to the gym - I've been slacking on my running, and swimming at work instead, but a run was way overdue. Since it's still about 100 degrees at night around here, that means time on the treadmill. I ran a 5k in 34 minutes (which is slow, but crazy fast for me!) and it felt wonderful to get back to running. Also, my gym got new treadmills that look a lot like spaceships to me.

3. Moving sucks - I've moved way too many times growing up, but luckily I always managed to get out of most of the packing (because I was too young). Now, I'm not only moving out of my apartment and into a new one, I'm helping my fam move out of our house. This means I'm losing my bedroom at home (it was time anyways) and having to decide what I want to keep out of all the junk I've collected over the years. I'm not that sentimental of a person when it comes to my things, so I was surprised how hard it would be to give away some of my stuff. I'm 22, I'll never play with my barbies again, but man it feels like blasphemy to throw her in the trash! haha

Questions of the day: Have you ever had a big move? What was/would be the hardest part for you? 


  1. 3.1 miles in 34 minutes sounds great to me!

  2. well I haven't exactly moved yet but I had to get my room put together because my cousin from Germany is staying with my parents in Tulsa for a semester to go to school here and well, she gets my room! So I had to get rid of a ton of junk to make room for her. Some of it was easy, like getting rid of old school stuff like papers. But it was hard to decide on what little junky mementos I really wanted to keep! So I set aside one large box and said "whatever fits in here is what i'll keep".

    It's going to be an even bigger nightmare when I have to get my own place next summer! yikes!

    Can't wait to see you soon!
