Giveaways, Swaps, Running, and Rascal Flatts!!

Like many of you, I really like giveaways! They are so fun and exciting! I mean, who doesn't like to win stuff? So I found another one, I know, 2 for the day. This one is a giveaway of Swoozies items!! I love Swoozies! So check out According to Ashley and enter in this awesome giveaway!!

Another great idea that many of my bloggy friends are doing is swaps! Now, I love getting snail mail and packages and rarely do, so this is totally fun!! Whitney over at That Girl is doing a Spring swap! Ya'll definitely need to check it out! Should be a blast and you will get some fun, springy stuff!!

So I am officially back to running, post ankle injury. As I posted about before, I started back about 2 weeks ago and had some issues with my ankle, so I gave it a little more time to heal and now, I AM BACK! Yea! So I am a little sad about where I am starting at because I HATE building my base but when you have been off for over 3 months you have to start from scratch. So my run today was this:
7 minutes running/2mins walking
8 minutes running/2mins walking
3 minutes running for a total of 2 miles
And man was I worn out! I am so out of shape!! I absolutely HATE, HATE, HATE run/walking but I have to do it to start now. I just feel like when I walk, I am cheating. And usually once I start walking, I can't get back into my groove, so when I train for longer distances I never walk. So I am torn on this. I think run/walk is one of the better ways to get my base built up and easy to push myself with, but I don't like it at all!! But my ankle feels FINE! YEA! That is the most important thing! So tomorrow I am planning on running and doing some weight/ab work.
Next topic...Rascal Flatts! So I know when ya'll all hear this, that green monster of jealousy will rear its ugly, little head but I'm gonna say it anyway. I am SO excited about the Rascal Flatts concert tomorrow night!! I have been waiting to see them for years!! Last time I missed out because no one could/would go with me but this time my friend Patti and I are goin!! I am very interested to see how Jessica Simpson does opening up for them. I haven't heard any of her new country stuff so it should be interesting! I will definitely post about the concert and how it was so be ready! I hope ya'll are having a great day:)
