- First, thank you to Lindsay from Chasing the Kenyans and to Michael R. for donating to my St. Jude’s donation page! I think it’s really awesome that I’m getting donations from my internet friends and it just makes me smile so big knowing that although we’ve never met – y’all are there to support me! Thank You!
- Official half marathon training begins next week! I’m excited, but also really wishing the weather would turn to fall-ish soon. :)
- I’m also excited because Scentsy transition month starts tomorrow and I have a consultant signing up under me! (I know y’all don’t understand and probably don’t care, but I’m happy!)
- Last but certainly not least… I ALMOST GOT BITTEN BY A COPPERHEAD SNAKE ON A RUN SUNDAY NIGHT!!!! I was doing my usual loop and was on my last lap around it and I was admiring the sky… Well, I just happened to look down and right directly by my foot was about a 3 foot long copperhead snake. His mouth was open and his body was coming up! His mouth was right by my ankle – I screamed loudly, jumped, and ran really fast in the opposite direction and finished my run. I am so, so lucky that I didn’t get bitten. I was about half a mile from home and I had my phone with me, but it still would’ve been a really bad experience and it scares me to think of what could’ve happened. Tonight was my first run since then (more like walk but whatever) and you better believe I was scanning the ground at all times!!
Hope y’all have a great week so far! Don’t give up – we’re almost to Friday!
