Just some thoughts


I've got running on the brain today.  Two weeks from tomorrow is my half marathon. I sort of have butterflies already!  I want to say "I'm a completer, not a competer," but when I get out there I want a good time and I want to do well.  Where is this competitive me coming from?  I like it:)

And isn't that a great metaphor for running?  Makes me want to run even more.  I miss Oprah.

Some {very} random links I enjoyed this week:

6 super foods to boost endurance

Shelf life advice: interesting website my pal Julia sent me about food shelf life and how to store things

From A Beautiful Mess: how to make product collages for your blog in Elements.  I don't use Elements that often but this was kind of fun.  Beware; very time consuming:)
