Three (Random) Things Thursday

Hi all! I forgot to write a Thursday post last week! oops!  I don’t have too much to share today, but tonight or tomorrow I’ll post my March run-down (spoiler: I hit triple digits this month!!!).

I have three completely random things to share today, because I wanted to at least post something!

My badass little sister, Kristen, is flying to California today to run her second Ragnar So Cal, Ragnar for Rett, where 6 extremely talented women (including my sissy) will run a relay of 190 miles, day and night and day again, to help raise money and awareness for Rett Syndrome.

I dropped my phone on Tuesday night and the screen shattered.  This was my first broken iPhone screen.  Sad day.  A friend pointed out that the cracks kind of resemble wings, #mybravewings, which made me smile.  I got my replacement yesterday, so all is well again!  Last time I had to get a new phone because of damage was a couple years ago when I dropped my phone in the toilet. =/

I have a half marathon in 9 days.  NINE DAYS! Then another 5 weeks after that; and then another 3 weeks after that!  That would be Rock the Parkway on April 9, Running with the Cows on May 14, and then Hospital Hill on June 4!

First of all, I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! I have SO many photos to share with you this week! I’m going to just do a quick sentence per picture, to get through them all!

My week started out with a Bestie date with Belle at Red Robin, including lots of bottomless fries!

Amy and I had a super hill run and we stopped to take a selfie at the top of a crazy hill.

We ran super fast on the way down.

It rained during our last mile, and poured after we finished running.

Amy found the way to Jasper’s heart: whipped cream.

I made the easiest “cake” ever, ice cream sandwich cake, for food day at work.

Lots of snuggles before leaving Jazzy and heading to Hays for the weekend.

Just some of the beauty of Kansas along I 70.

Saturday morning as I was getting ready to run, somebody was watching my every move.

Before running with Mom and Shay, I headed out for 5 miles; I ran to the north water tower and back.

After 5 solo miles, Mom and Shay joined in for a virtual 5k for Rett Syndrome. (links: GP2C, Sparkle Athletic, Rett Syndrome info)

Hays sure was chilly for Easter weekend, especially with the strong winds.

Saturday morning after an 8 mile run, I FINALLY got my snoball!!!

Photo Mar 26, 11 36 46 AM

It was so amazing.

Michelle sent me lots of Jazzy snaps so I wouldn’t miss him so much. I ❤ this picture!

Sunday morning, Mom and I had a great 4 miler, sunny, but still chilly!

Photo Mar 27, 10 11 47 AM

Grandma and Granddad came over for Easter dinner, Gordon got lots of snuggles.

Sad to leave Hays, but I’ll be back soon!

The snoball for Chelle made it 3 and a half hours all the way to KC!

Monday Mentionings: March 14

It’s Monday, and it’s officially spring in my apartment! The time changed last night, and it was light out until 7:45 last night!! I also bought lots of spring clothes over the weekend, so I’m ready! Bring on the beautiful weather!

Jasper and I have still been cuddling a lot, and it warms my heart. He’s such a sweetheart.

We started playing Factoring Feud (Family Feud) at work last week – it’ll be a weekly thing for a while.  I love where I work. 🙂  Also, I realize I spelled Feud incorrectly in my snapchat below, I was in a hurry and autocorrect didn’t do it’s job.  Don’t judge!

Amy and I found a beautiful flowering tree/bush right by the trail after a 5 mile run on Wednesday.  We just had to stop and take a picture.  The blooms are so pretty.  I think it’s a tulip magnolia tree.

Photo Mar 09, 6 33 55 PM

My apartment building got a new roof last week.  Jasper (and I) didn’t appreciate the loud noises.  At least it was over in a day and a half!

Photo Mar 09, 12 45 28 PM

Epic runfie action taking place on Thursday night runs with the KC Running Co. groupies!

Photo Mar 10, 6 06 47 PM

It’s okay Jasper, its not like I was about to get up and go to bed! I’m always up for more snuggles.

Photo Mar 11, 9 31 18 PM

Friday night, Michelle and I made hamburgers, rice, and asparagus, and ate on the balcony.  It was a most perfect evening.  We even had ice cream sandwiches for dessert.  Mmmm!

Photo Mar 11, 6 12 30 PM

Sunday morning was the Whiskey Run 5k in Martin City.  It was a really fun race! I had to walk a couple times because of  a crazy side stitch I’ve gotten during my runs over the last week or so (way out of the ordinary, I never get side stitches!).  Check out my race recap here!

Photo Mar 13, 9 51 42 AM

After the race and my second little run, Jasper and I had some balcony time.  It was overcast and kind of drizzly on and off all weekend, but the temps have been amazing.

Have a great week, friends!
