First 10k!! Woohoo

I promise exercise won't be an everyday occurrence on here, but I have to write about my first 10k Saturday night!!

It was the Retro Night Glow road race put on by a local organization called Project Giving. I ran the 10k with Jared (hubby) and 3 other girlfriends. I had my best time yet!!!! I surprised myself. I had fun too. I am a bit sore today, but I actually don't feel that bad. It makes me excited for the half-marathon in November. I better get training!! 

Yay for running together!!!

In Christ,

Monday Musings: Fall Edition

Wow!! How about this weather!! It feels like Fall and it is September in Middle Georgia! Woah!

In honor of the weather, we will talk about all things Fall today, so be prepared.

Porches: We will now be sitting on the porch often, as long as the dog doesn't bark at everyone who walks by. Maybe we'll get to know more neighbors with the cooler weather :)

Boots: Oh boots.....need I say more.

Scarves: So pretty, yet so simple. I didn't get to wear my scarves much last year, cuz it never got that cold, but you can bet that I will make a point to wear them this year. They are so much fun!!

Pumpkin Spice Latte: Totally had one last week, and my day was made. That WILL be happening again:)

Pumpkin bread: The hubby has already requested it, so I'm sure it will appear in the Fincher house in the near future. I might share my recipe (not really mine, but I'll send you in the right direction to find it) Maybe I could make some rounds to the neighbors....I know you want to be my neighbor now!

Leaves: I always try to make a point to notice the leaves changing in the fall. It is so easy to get busy and forget to look, but God creates such beauty that just radiates His own beauty. So thankful for beautiful colors in the Fall.

What do you love about Fall??

In Christ,

Monday Musings

Well, another week begins as it always does. Today we should discuss half marathons; not because they are such a fascinating subject in general, but because I am training for one. I know it's selfish, but I write about what I know (by the way that is a good writing tip: Write what you know).

Anyway, half-marathons are a strange thing. I never in my life thought I would ever run anything like that. I run 2 or 3 miles "for fun," but 13.1 is another story. Despite my lack of desire to run a half-marathon, my dear friend, Courtney, talked me into it. So, I am currently training for one in November.

We do long runs on the weekend, so Saturday we ran 6 miles-the furthest I've ever run! It turns out that I am actually enjoying this whole running thing more than I thought. There is quite a sense of accomplishment to go along with the training. I feel like I could do anything!! Well, most anything.

Enough rambling, the reason I'm especially thinking about running right now is because I ran across this book today called Every Body Matters by Gary Thomas. I've never heard of it before, but it is quite intriguing. It talks about how by exercising and taking care of our bodies we are honoring God. I mean, of course I've thought about that before, but I've never seen a whole book about being healthy so that we can serve God better. I'm carefully contemplating buying the book. I'll let you know if I do, and if it's any good:)

Enough exercise talk! Let's talk about this:
My afternoon treat after my morning workout on Saturday:) Yummy!!!

Have a good Monday!

Birthday Time!

Let's take a minute to celebrate the man in my life. I know you probably do not care to celebrate him, but you should. He's pretty awesome! Although I try to celebrate him all the time, I especially celebrate him now because he just had a birthday!!

Happy Birthday Jared!
(I know it looks like we're underwater...wouldn't it be cool if we were!)

(Dirt Cake!!!!!Yeah!)

He is the perfect man for me, and I thank God for him everyday. 

Have a great Wednesday!
