Last night's 12 miler didn't go quite has I had hoped. I didn't start running til about 8pm last night and by the time I was half way through, it was getting really really dark. By mile 10, I started to get a bit spooked. I really wanted to finish the last mile but I figured running in the dark near the hills wasn't the safest thing to do. So I skipped the last mile, which was to run around a park that was known to be a bit "shady" at night. I felt good, though I knew I could have gone longer but for my safety sake, I detoured and cut through a residential area. The funny thing is that the reason why I got started so late was because I was feeling kinda crappy after work and didn't feel like running. I had a really slow start and didn't really warm up until mile 7. But the last 3 miles felt really really good. Anyway, I'll be doing a 4-5 miler today.
My sister got a great shot of the 3 bridal shower cakes so I'm posting them again. As a matter of fact, I am craving more of this cake. I even had a soft serve ice cream cone at McDonalds after lunch at St. John's today! (The ice cream cone is supposedly only 150 calories!!)
