Tackling Tuesday

Got up this morning and headed to my parents house so my dad and I could take my car in to get the air conditioning looked at! On our way home we decided to stop at Shelby Farms and pick strawberries! I didn't even know this place existed but it was so fun! We picked a whole bucket full and I am planning to make a strawberry cake out of some of them. YUM! When we got back I decided to go for a short 2 miler since I have soccer tonight. I started off at my usual pace but was really itching to go fast! So halfway I decided to speed it up a bit and that left me worn out when I got home! It felt GREAT! My right calf is still giving me some issues. It was sore halfway into the run and after that felt fine, but is really stiff now. Hope that doesn't affect my playing tonight!! So here is my run info:

2 miles- 18:45
1st mile-9:45 min pace
2nd mile - 9:03 min pace

That's a good deal faster on my 2nd mile! I'm pretty happy about that! And yes I know I'm no speed demon! Haha. And my car wasn't that expensive to fix! Yea!

I was also given The Lemonade Award award by the lovely Angela at Sweet Tea Diaries!! She has such a cute blog and I have really enjoyed reading it and getting to know her!

As for my attitude of gratitude, it's something I have to constantly strive at. Sometimes you really just have to look at everything you have when you are down. I am thankful for so many things that give me gratitude, like my health, ability to run and play soccer, my family and friends, my awesome boyfriend, my job, the ability to go back to school. I think it's really important to give thanks to God for everything you are blessed with!!

I am passing this along to: Melissa , Whitney , Jennifer, Susan, Kristen, Sweetpea, Rachel, Lauren

Hope everyone has a great night! I will be out late celebrating (hopefully!) after soccer!!
