- I haven't felt like blogging lately. I'm still working out and doing stuff but just haven't felt the need to document it here. I've never been very consistent so it's not that surprising. I'll just play it by ear. Maybe I'll eventually be interested in blogging again.
- I am still training for my next half marathon. I'm not trying to PR but am hoping to break 2 hours. I ran 11 miles this past weekend and it gave me confidence that I can do it (as long as the weather isn't oppressive). It was pretty evident that during this long run that I wasn't really feeling the first half but I turned it around the second half. My splits were: 9:38, 9:11, 9:31, 9:13, 9:12, 8:58, 8:52, 9:02, 8:39, 8:34, and 8:16. The funny thing is, I accidentally had my watch set to MPH instead of pace (I switched it for riding my bike and forgot to switch it back) so I didn't really know what pace I was running for sure during each mile so I was just running by feel.
- My best friend got married almost 2 weeks ago and Joey and I were in the wedding. I did more DIY projects for her wedding than I did for my own! It ended up coming down to the wire (procrastinate much? There's a reason why I didn't do a lot for my own wedding) but we got everything finished on time! The craziest thing about the day was that I ended up being the hair-stylist of the day! I did my own hair, the hair of the two other bridesmaids, and then assisted with the bride's hair. If you told me a few months ago that I would be doing everyone's hair, I would have laughed at you. I watched a ton of youtube videos and read a few hairstyle blogs and messed around with my own hair a good deal leading up to the day because I knew I needed an easy updo since the wedding was outside in August. I think it all turned out really well though.
One more quick thing... one of the DIY projects I tackled for her wedding was a garter. I'd never made one before and didn't follow a pattern but I was really excited about how it turned out! Her wedding colors were coral and teal (although varying shades of teal/turquoise) so I chose a vibrant coral satin fabric.
