Hot Trottin

Hello friends!
It's been a while since I've been on here so let me start by catching you up with what's gone on in the last couple weeks...
May 29th was Allison and AJ's beautiful wedding in Tuscaloosa. She looked beautiful!

Here we are in our lovely dresses.

 Then, there's the fun festivities of my BIRTHDAY!  I reached 23 years old on June 12th!  The day started quite early at 5 am.  Calee, Jerry, and I got up and headed over to Gulf Shores for the Hot Trot 5K.  It was the best way to start the day!  It was a fun, relaxed, and flat course.

And me and Calee and our Ray Ban sunglasses!

Getting close...

And finishing!!  This is one of my most favorite pictures ever!  I LOVE Calee's excited face!

Then we went to breakfast at the Eastern Shore Cafe.  It seriously has the best breakfast!  I got a sweet little apple muffin with a candle and a happy birthday song too :)  We went thrift store shopping and got a bunch of new books that I can't wait to read, floated around and soaked up the sun at the pool, took a tiny nap, got up and cooked, and then had some friends over for a little birthday fun.  I have to say that this was a wonderful day and I'm very blessed!

I've been doing pretty well with doing most of my runs outside!  However, today I did run 6 miles at the gym and did some weights.

Nighty night friends.  I'm going to relax and watch a movie!

good day

Yesterday, Calee and I tackled some hills in the heat. It was tough but we did about 5 miles. For dinner we all went over to my parent's house and cooked Asian food. I have to say it turned out delicious! The best part was the peanut sauce Jerry made. It wasn't exactly healthy but we did have an assortment of veggies to go along with the food.
I got an email about local races coming up and guess what...there are a couple on my birthday (June 12)! Calee and I decided we are going to sign up for the Hot Trot 5K. I've done 10K, 1/2, and full marathon before but I've actually never done a 5K before. I'm definately interested in how I would do at this distance. I can't wait!
Today, I've been pretty productive already. I went to the gym to run and workout. (It's been storming on and off all day.) I got a good 6 mile run in plus working abs, arms, and legs. Post run food was a banana and soy milk. I also cleaned the house up a bit and it feels nice and fresh! I think I'll read for a while and relax. Coffee sounds good!
Just heard my brother just made it to Thailand. I'm going to miss him so much these next 2 months. Please keep him in your prayers!
218 days until Disney :)
Run happy,
