Three Things Thursday

1.  I got in an awesome run yesterday after work.  I was initially bumming because it was sunny all day and then it was cloudy when I got out of work.  Boo!  I set out anyway and we feeling pretty good.  At about mile 2 I ran into a snow squall.  At this point I passed a car that was about to turn into their driveway, but waited to let me pass.  I waved thanks and then noticed the man in the car behind the first car.  He was giving me a big thumbs up.  Totally love when strangers are so supportive.  That really helped my power through the rest of my run and it put a smile on my face.  By the end of mile 2 the sun was back out.  I did 3 miles total with negative splits.  Sweet!  I'm finally starting to feel 'normal' running again.

2.  Check out this awesome shirt my mom picked up for me:
Is that not perfect or what?  I've had to resist the urge to wear it on every run.

3.  My brother's hockey team made the playoffs and the first playoff game was last night.  It was late, but I went anyway because my brother is graduating this year.  It was the most exciting game of his I've ever been to.  It was close the whole game, each team scoring and playing hard.  Unfortunately, our team lost 4 to 6.  But I've been watching my brother play hockey since he was about 5 and it is amazing how different it is to watch.  When he started all the kids would go after the puck at the same time.  Last night's game was well played and it's a bummer they lost.  But I was proud of my brother and how hard he played.  Hopefully he can find a pick up league to play in to be able to keep playing.


  1. LOVE that shirt! Very cute!

    It's always nice when you get some encouragment from a stranger.

  2. YAY for awesome mom's. so thoughtful.

  3. Oh my gosh, that is clearly the best life is good shirt there is!
