Tell me why I don't like Mondays...

It's Monday again. Blah. It's rainy and chilly and dreary too. Can I go back to Florida? NO? Well fine. I guess I'll have to go to work then.

I am in the process of uploading the photos of our Disney trip. As I've mentioned before, it takes forever to do. My beloved Mac is kind of old and kind of full of pictures so she's a bit slow. I still love her though and I try to be patient.

I beat my previous best treadmill 5K time yesterday and finished in 37 minutes 57 seconds... I know, I know, it's slow but the fact that I'm even running simply boggles my mind so be happy for me. (the winner of The Broad Street Run in Philly this weekend finished in 47 minutes and that was 10 miles... pretty funny comparison if you as me! ha ha! I think he was 26 and a "real" runner though. )

I'm off to pack up for our day, lunches, swim gear, work out gear etc. I will blog more tomorrow. Have a great Monday, I hope your weather is better than ours.

I think it is fabulous that you are running. If I only run a few steps I am so out of breath I think I am going to pass out!!!

It is really overcast here today. Not raining yet but certainly looking like it will. We have rain in the forecast for the next five days. As long as there are no tornados, hail storms or straight line winds I can deal with it!

I think your time is awesome!! Mine was not much faster when I was feeling "in the best shape ever". I am hoping I can catch up to you by the race for Brain Tumor Society in Nov!!!
Amazing about the Broad Street run....I cannot even imagine!

OMG, 47 minutes for a 10 mile run is absolutely insane! Your running pace is great, you are improving all the time, way to go!!

Glad you had fun at Disney, and try not to wish too much that you were back in FL, today, and as far as the forecast shows, 90+ every.single.day. Blech. We can trade if ya want, I would LOVE to be in PA right now, even with the rain!

Looking forward to seeing your pictures!
