FIVE miles.

I ran five miles this weekend. By myself.

I'm ridiculously proud of myself, it's kinda silly. I mean, I've run 5 miles consecutively before
.... but I don't know if I've ever done it alone. Felt so good. Painful, but good.

I also started knitting these. I nearly finished one on Sunday, and I think I'll have the other one done by the end of the week. Knitting is so theraputic for me--I can talk, think, watch reruns of Northern Exposure (my new fav), or just zone out. The repetition is so nice after a long week of work. And it's so nice to be making something that is useful and pretty. I look forward to a few knitting and coffee dates this week wih close friends.

Yay for 5 miles! I told J last night and he was excited for you too! :)

I love the idea of fingerless gloves, but I'm not sure I could pull them off and still look cute. But you, however, can do that with anything. Even your hat! Tammy really loved it.

I have a shirt from Target that has the "fingerless gloves" as a part of the sleeves. I love it so much that I went back to buy another one.

Hi Mel!
I finally put your blog on my RSS feed. I have no idea how it took so long! I am very excited. Your hat (in the last post) looks so pretty! Good job running 5 miles. That's like running from Ben's house around to your parents place and back...plus another mile. (: This whole country mile thing has really help me grasp running distance. Way to go!
