Today is my 24th Birthday! I love the date that I was born on and so does Tall Mom because its 3/3 and the number three is both our favorite number!
I got up at 5am and headed out for a slow recovery run! 3.15 miles at 9 min/mile pace which is great because I always have trouble going that slow and my body really needed to take this run slow. It was about 32F outside and it wasn't quite as dark as usual! Soon I will be seeing the sun rise on my morning runs! Yesterday I did my interval workout then met Kaylie for spin class after work and my legs were so tired. The only reason I made it through the class was because of the girl in front of me. She kept me entertained as she had put the bike seat too low and looked ridiculous with her knees almost hitting her chest! I love people watching at the gym!
Tonight I will be going to my parents house for a birthday dinner and cake! I really wish Brian was here for my birthday but I will actually get to talk to him tonight on iChat! And we will celebrate once he gets back so its like I get two birthday celebrations!
It is Wednesday and I am bring back Literary Wednesdays -
I am totally a "judge the book by the cover" kind of girl and that is exactly why I picked the book The Wedding Machine by Beth Webb Hart. Here is a quick summary from BookList:
For decades in Jasper, South Carolina, every wedding has been planned according to long-standing customs. The women who guard these traditions, the Wedding Guild, have been friends since girlhood and now it’s the summer of their daughters’ weddings. Ray, the group’s leader, uses her perfectionist tendencies to mask her lower-class past. Sis lets memories of her long-dead fiancé keep her from new love. Kitty B. spends so much effort on her hypochondriac husband, she’s forgotten to take care of herself. Hilda, once the princess of Jasper, has become a recluse since her divorce. The friends must band together to keep their town’s customs—and their own dreams—thriving.
I really enjoyed this book. It was an easy read and just a very positive book about Southern Life and customs and friends. Sometimes I just need a book that is fun and happy and this totally fulfilled that for me! What are you reading?
Hope everyone has a great Wednesday!!!
