Three Things Thursday

1.  Don't forget my giveaway!  It ends Saturday.

2.  This evening I'm running the Hollis Fast 5K.  This race starts at the center of the town and is great because it is literally a gradual downhill the whole way.  Everyone keeps telling my that I will PR, but my PR from last summer happened when I was 15 pounds lighter.  I'm just not sure how that is going to factor into things tonight.  The weather is also damp and cold and rain is a real possibility this evening.  I've never raced in the rain, nor do I really want to.  I mean, what do you wear to race in the rain?  Either way, I plan on being there because a) I paid to be there and b) I've wanted to run this race for a long time.  Here are my goals for tonight:

I Know I Can: sub 33 min
I Think I Can: sub 31 min
I Hope I Can: sub 29 min (this may be really pushing is, but we can all dream, right?)

3.  Recently I mentioned the new camera we got as a shower gift in this post.  This is the camera we got (I told you we got spoiled):
It's a Nikon Coolpix S4000.  Personally, I'm a fan of Nikon and think they make a really great camera.  My mom has a Nikon (albeit a fancier one) and she really likes that.  I, however, wanted something more compact because I wanted to be able to fit it in my purse so I can always have my camera on me.  Well, this thing is not only compact, but I think it takes a really great photo.  We've been playing around with it a lot to figure out all the cool things it does.  One of the features is that it will take continuous photos, which Patrick really likes because then he can get better action shots at races.  It also has a touchscreen, which initially I thought I wouldn't like, but it turns out I love it!  It makes the camera more fun to play with. 


  1. I always wear a visor when I run in the rain. Good luck!

  2. Good Luck tonight, I would also advise wearing some type of hat for rain!

  3. Good luck with your race and have fun with your new camera!

  4. ohhh nikon is my favorite! when the cats broke my first one I had no doubts it was what I would buy again.

    a race on a thursday, that's just too fun! I hope you splash in a few puddles if it rains, that's the best way to just enjoy it
