Pirates of the Carribean and a 4 mile run!!

We saw Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End on Friday. It was really good. We hadn't seen the second one, so rented it and watched it last week. It definitely helped that we had just watched that one when we went to see the new one. I didn't have high expectations for the second one, so I was pleasantly surprised how good it was. They were both really good. I don't want to go into too much detail and give anything away! We probably won't go to the movies this weekend because I have the Race for the Cure and 2 parties. But we want to see "Knocked Up", "Surf's Up", and "Ocean's Thirteen" next.
Speaking of the Race for the Cure, it's already 5 days away. Today I ran 4 miles so I know I'll be ready! I'm not looking forward to getting up at 5 a.m., but I'm looking forward to the race itself. My goal is to run it in under 40 minutes which I know I can do. I'll let you know how it goes!

Shrek the Third

Last night was summer movie #2- Shrek the Third. I was looking forward to seeing this, and then when it came out there were a lot of mixed reviews. Many people say the first and second are much better and this one needs to be the last. I was bummed but still planned on going. I am so glad I did! It was funny and cute and I was able to relax and enjoy it. There were many adult jokes in the movie and they were good! If you're looking for a movie where you can just sit back, relax, and don't have to do much thinking, then go see Shrek the Third! On Friday we also saw "An Inconvenient Truth". It opened my eyes and I encourage everyone who hasn't seen it to go out right now and rent it.
Next up: Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. We already have our tickets so I guess that means we're definitely going!

Race for the Cure

I signed up for the Susan G. Komen National Race for the Cure yesterday. It's a 5K run or walk on June 2. I'm going to do the run, and my goal is to raise $300. So far I've raised $60. There's another 5K on June 16 and an 8K July 21 that I'm hoping to do as well. I had a lot of fun running races last spring and I'm looking forward to running lots more, especially when it's for a good cause. I ran 2 miles last night, plan to do 2 again tonight, and Sunday I'm going for 3!

Spiderman 3

We kicked off our summer movie bonanza today with Spiderman 3. I have one word to describe this movie- weird. I didn't know what to expect going into it and I tried not to let the reviews influence me. It wasn't bad, but it was so weird! It was really all over the place and it definitely could have been a lot better! I'm glad we saw it and because I didn't have any expectations, I wasn't disappointed so that's good. I won't go into it because I don't want to give anything away for those of you who haven't seen it but are planning to. Next up: Shrek the Third!
Oh, and I ran for 30 minutes this afternoon- 2.5 miles! :)

I ran 20 minutes tonight= 1.6 miles!! Woohoo!

First Post

I figured since I've had this blog since January, it's time to finally make a post. I haven't decided just what type of a blog I want to have. Mostly I'll write about how my running is going. I figure if I'm writing about it, then I have to be doing it. No excuses. I hadn't really done any running since October 2006 when I ran a 5K, but this past Friday I decided to go to the gym and I ran 1 mile. This time last year I was running 6 miles and now I'm struggling to finish 1. It was a wake-up call and I'm definitely glad to be back in the game. My goal is to be able to run a 5K in June. There are 2 of them and I just might run both. I'm also going to run a 10K in November and in 2008 I just might run that half-marathon I was training for last year. It's going to be a long road, but I'm looking forward to every step. Oh, and that's my cute and wonderful kitten, Sebastian.
