13 miles and 10 inches

So between now and our last conversation, I have finished a half marathon and a 25K run. Officially, I now hate running. It's not fun anymore. RM and I run on Saturday mornings together. We have been doing about 10 - 11 miles at a time. During our runs he will ask me if I love running, exalting how great running is and how could anyone not love it. Every time I can say absolutely, without hesitation - NO, I don't love it. At all. But . . . I can't seem to stop. It takes the weight off (still trying to drop those last 10 or 15 pounds from baby) and I feel great after. The added benefit is that I get to spend a few hours alone with RM. Anyone with children will understand the benefit of that! Hence, I keep running.

Finished a new project. It was quick and just what I needed. It is Springtime in Philadelphia by Kate Gagnon Osborn. Clearly written and very short! Just what I like in a pattern. I cast on for the hat on June 6 and was finished (blocking and all) on June 12. How's that?!

The yarn was Crystal Palace Yarns Panda Silk Solid in a very light lavender. Not sure if this color will be flattering on me. My hair is a mousy brown that only RM could love. I have a sister-in-law that has red hair (if you are reading this, and you know who you are - look away now), so this might be a great holiday gift for her.

Only a few more weeks of school left, so I can return to knitting, blogging and home repair with a vengence!
