1000 Mile Mom

It's not just a goal… it's a lifestyle adjustment!

Day 117: July 24, 2013- Summer is flying by!

on July 24, 2013

Day 117: 29 miles logged since last FRI, 248.25 miles to go… A lot of four mile morning runs over the last week, but a few evening jaunts as well thanks to this wonderfully cool weather. Successfully turned in all of my 4H Open Class entries over the weekend, and will be taking home a few colorful ribbons when I pick everything up on SUN : ) Great MON night Art Smart Class; got rained on, hailed on, and snake slithered by at Howell Wetlands for our TUE night SMILE calendar photoshoot; and taught my first Hobby Lobby art class and had a fun SMILE dance class on WED. Busy with SMILE Buddy Walk prep. Excited we’ve added a 5K this year. This are coming along smoothly, and I look forward to sharing more information on the event. Extremely grateful for such a productive week! A few fun pics below. Also, BTW, WC= 60,045 ; ) less than 25,000 more words to go!

Then just as I was starting to post this pic to Facebook, a snake slithered right by my flip-flopped foot- ugh!!!! Heebie jeebies. I high tailed it out of the spot right quick!

At my mixed class, participants can be as creative and carefree as they’d like, but for those wanting structure, this week’s class focused around creating a piece that described the person. This is how mine turned out- media: card stock, acrylic paint watered down, magazine collage, and stamping : )
