Girls night! My friend Brandy is moving to Missouri as soon as she finds a job, so we had to designate a night out before time got away from us. Ashley, Brandy, and I met up at Brandy's for some drinks before hitting up karaoke where our friend Jaqui was DJing. It was a wonderful time, we sang some great songs, including "Wannabe," "Zombie," "Toucha Toucha Toucha Me," and I serenaded Ashley with "The Way I Am" :)
I started Saturday off at 7:30 with a couple hours of work :( So of course it could only get better. Ryan and I spent the afternoon at the John Deere Classic and had a great time. It was a lot of walking, especially up and down hills, so I was getting really nervous for my race Saturday night because I was already so tired! What race you ask? Why the Moonlight Chase of course. The Moonlight Chase is a 4-mile night-time race out in Eldridge, IA (where I grew up) and the course is wonderful! You walk/run through town and there are people lining the entire course cheering you on. It was hot and hilly, but I'm so glad I did it!! You can find the results here, yes that's me in 1,280th place! =) And I couldn't be prouder, so take that! My goal is just to continue improving. I already improved my mile pace just in the one week since my 5K, so just gotta keep going!

I picked up my lil' bro and we drove up to Cedar Rapids to see my sister's new house! It was a VERY hot day, so we spent the majority of it inside, but was a great day. They have a cute house, and I'm so glad they are out of the apartment with all the college kids! When we got back from C.R. later that evening, Ryan and I had to clean up and go grocery shopping for his little birthday dinner that we had with his family last night (Monday night).
I was SOO tired Monday morning, I didn't want to work. But it's already Tuesday, and I cannot wait until Thursday! Why am I so excited for Thursday?! HARRY POTTER AT MIDNIGHT!!! And then I have Friday off and Ashley L is coming to town for the weekend...it's going to be quite stellar! Happy Tuesday everyone!
