13.1

That’s right… For those who don’t know, a half marathon is 13.1 miles and guess who ran one!

ME!

I made it in 3:25:00 which is not bad for my first half and minimal training :PPP Gives me a good start for training though!

Here are 5 things that I learned about running such great distances!

  1. PLAYLISTS ARE EVERYTHING!
  2. Do not each much before running
  3. Drink the little cups of water they give you at EVERY stop because it will be another mile until you see those watergivers again!
  4. Read the funny signs and laugh at them
  5. Just keep pushing through it. You will finish and feel like you will die, but you will finish!

My aunt also ran the half marathon however she finished much quicker than I did!

Craft Train Ahead!

WOOWOO!

I know I’ve promised some craft filled posts lately and I’ve failed you all. Now, I have been crafting, A LITTLE, not as much as I wish I was. I’ve been a bit of a workaholic lately.

I have been crafting so much in the past two days! I’ve been petsitting at B’s house the past few days where I have unlimited access to a sewing machine and days off!!! I have a few dorm projects (not nearly as sexy as my past dorm projects) I’m working on.

Some sneak peak picture from the Geek Stitching Facebook page! That’s right! If you didn’t know, I made a Facebook page a few weeks ago so I can post photos of WIPs since I really like to post the finished project on Geek Stitching itself!

I’ve been doing some fun things like sewing and embroidering and singing!

I’ve been interspersing my craft time by taking the new addition to B’s family for runs!

Kiska is a siberian husky or malamute. Not quite sure because she came from an abused home. I do try to tire her out on our runs. It cracks me up that she’s a lean running machine and at the end of our run she’s the one dragging and I’m still going strong.

That’s the update for today! Sorry for being so sparse this summer! My name’s Kim and I’m a workaholic!

Brittany’s Pillow

I started this pillow a few weeks ago. I couldn’t post it on my blog because her accompanying quilt had not been finished yet and I have no clue if she looks at this blog!

This is the cross stitching I did!

I really like how this pillow came out. It matches the fabric of the quilt in both design and fabric!

I really do think that it turned out well!

Here’s a couple of pictures of the quilt that I helped my mom make for Miss Brittany!

I hope you enjoyed it!

Have a good day!
