Marvelous is.... my frist MIMM
! For some reason, I've never joined the link-up before, but I've always loved the idea - to focus on the little things that make life (and the often dreaded Mondays) a bit better.
Marvelous is... my 9.25 mile run yesterday! It was only going to be 8, but then I just had to see what was around the corner, and I couldn't skimp on running through the little community garden... and before I knew it, I was at 4.6 miles and still had to run back! My pace ended up being a bit slower than usual with an average pace of about 10:00/mile, but I ran 9.25 miles so who cares?! And besides, I think that pace is going to be pretty close to my pace come the actual half marathon.
Marvelous is... a new running tank! While I have pretty good self-control around regular clothes, when it comes to running gear? Um yeah, that self-control goes out the window... hey, at least running clothes are more practical. Okay, maybe everyday clothes are actually more practical, but I have more fewer running clothes so that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
The lightning kind of makes me look like I have a cold or am crying... promise neither is the case! ;-)
Marvelous is... my last day of work! I will miss the people I work with, but I've made enough pizzas to last me a lifetime. Still haven't gotten tired of eating them though, and I don't think that could ever change.
Marvelous is... a homegrown tomato! A bird got some of them, but the ones that survived? Oh man, talk about deliciousness! I will be guarding the rest of these with my magic wand. What, you didn't know I had one? (And yes, I am a huge Harry Potter nerd.)
Marvelous is... these pancakes
. I had (more like inhaled) them when I returned from my glorious run above, and all I can say is they make they are best post-run fuel ever.
Marvelous is... Starbucks. Cool lime refreshers - my summer in three words. And apparently my name is Alice. It was actually pretty funny because he asked my name and then wrote it down and said, "Well, it doesn't really look like Alice, but you know who you are." I didn't have the heart to tell him otherwise so I just smiled... smile and wave boys, smile and wave. (Please tell me you get the reference!)
What's been marvelous in your life lately?
