More challenges to myself. I made this list at the beginning of the year and haven't come close to fulfilling a single one of them. The year is almost half over already!
Another RANDOM journal page. Below is the beginnings of this page. I don't always work in this process (of painting around things), it's definitely not the most efficient!
The fun little feet things coming in from the lower edges is a little stamp I cut from a scrap of eraser.
If you're a visual journaler there's a fun Journal Pages Group on Facebook you may want to join. It offers weekly prompts, a place to share techniques, info and inspiration.
Last Saturday I ran the Hippie Chick Half Marathon with my friends Tammy (left) and Stacey (right). This was Tammy's FIRST half marathon! She was amazing! She will tell you that she wasn't athletic growing up and that this "running thing" has been very difficult for her, involving lot's of frustrations with her performance and so on. You wouldn't have known it, she pushed through enormous pain and finished 13.1 miles RUNNING! I'm SO PROUD of you Tam! It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it.
I'm itching for another running goal. Not sure I want to commit to serious training through the hot summer months... hmmm. what to do?
I did get out a few times this week, keeping my HR under 147 to stay in "recovery zone".
Ready for the sun to shine around here this weekend! We've had a very cold and WET week.
