That's me. Super, extra proud.
Yesterday my mama did her SECOND Julia Jones 5K training session.
I couldn't be prouder if she's run a marathon in heels. Because that FIRST session is tough. And I don't know about you, but for me, the hardest thing I've ever done in the gym was getting through the doors for the first time. So snaps and hugs and hooting and hollering for her, and her chums who are running with her.
I'm also feeling kind of proud of myself. Yesterday I ran the farthest I've ever run in my entire life. 3 km. Without stopping or crying or barfing in my hands. I kind of snuck it up on myself and I didn't PLAN to keep running after the first 1.2. But I did. Mostly because of this...

Prettiest sunset ever. Pink and shiny and lovely. And while I technically know that sunsets are caused by SCIENCE STUFF, this one felt like a present from the universe, maybe not JUST for me, but a BIT for me.


  1. I love how something pretty made you keep running :) Awesome job by the way...keep up the good work x

  2. The universe does just like to say hi every now and then. Cool sunset and even cooler running from both you and your momma.

  3. A big thumbs up to mom and a hearty congrats to you. Running is hard so doing 3km minus barfing and crying equals massive amounts of respect from me. And what a beautiful sunset. Gotta love when the universe smiles down on you!
