Weekly Workouts

So I realize this is late! I was in Seattle last weekend and this week we have been crazy busy trying to find a house. No luck yet  I am afraid, which means we are escalating plan B to find a month to month rental. Oh the joys of moving. Needless to say, things are a bit off track around here but I hope they settle down soon.

Monday, Feb 25  – 45 minute ride
Tuesday, Feb 26 –  OFF
Wednesday, Feb 27 – 60 minutes Pilates
Thursday, Feb 28 – 5k run
Friday, March 1  – OFF
Saturday, March 2 – TOO much walking for a pre race day ; )
Sunday, March 3 - 15km Hot Chocolate Run, Seattle

This past week I really didn't do much at all. Monday we spent much of the day walking around downtown Seattle and took the ferry to Bainbridge island. I think I could live in Seattle : )  Then I caught this dreaded head cold (courtesy of the lady in the airport waiting lounge).  I am a crabby sick person... like those ads with the cartoons with the red noses.

I attempted a short run today and lasted 4k before walking it home. Truthfully, the walk was actually longer than the run. I am beyond tired of the icy slushy sidewalks. Spring hurry up and melt this please!!!

A Special Gift

A while back I entered a draw on She Does Justice for a bracelet from The Little Mist. I was so excited when I found out that I won and Hilary contacted me to ask what bracelet I would like.

I chose the Sparrow, which symbolizes the verse:

"Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows" Luke 12:7


The bracelet was inclosed in a simple, hand crafted and thoughtful little pouch with the following message below the passage:

You are loved. You are cared for. When this tiny

sparrow catches your eye remember the creator cares for you 

so much more. Give Him your worry, your fear.

Rest in him.

Some days you need a pick me up and this has been one of those days (ok weeks).  It is also on days like this that I am reminded of a much larger community that I am part of, even if only through virtual contact.  Never underestimate the power of a kind tweet or an email or even a blog giveaway that touches someone's heart.

Happy Friday!
