Go Legs Go!

Happy weekend! Today has been a fabulous day thus far! I worked a short day and then busted through a number of errands(post office, dry cleaners, food store). After, I pushed through a 6 mile run. I tried to pick up my speed since I usually just take it at an easy/comfy pace. I was shocked when I looked down at my watch at the end of my run:

I never knew my 5'1" body could make it (on average) under 9 minutes! I just finished showering, packing, and snacking :) I'm off to Columbia, SC for the Les Mills Quarterly! See you all tomorrow!!

Also: Happy Blog Birthday to Meghann!!
