A very satisfying Saturday!

This morning my little sister and I ran in a 5k race. It was exhilarating and now I am (happily) exhausted. Earlier this year, in February, one of my best friends and I ran a 10k, so I figured Oh, the 5k will be no sweat. Wrong: lots of sweat, lots of hills, and two very tired legs. I'm really glad I did it, though, and I am looking forward to the 15k I'm running in October and the half marathon (!!) I'm running in November. But I digress - running those two races will take a bunch of training.

I finished my internship yesterday afternoon, so for the rest of the summer my plans are: swimming, reading, painting, and havin' a few beers.

(The picture is from the garden I grew this summer; the sunflowers make my heart swell.)
