On Sunday, I got a new phone! I switched from Verizon to AT&T. We concluded it would save us money if we put our phones on a family plan. I just got my first super awesome phone! I got a htc Inspire 4G, and I LOVE it! Cannot find my phone? No problem! HTC has a website that will allow me to force my cell phone to ring even if it is on silent. I can also track it by gps, and if I discover it has been stolen, I can wipe my important data. How cool is that?!
Even more fun than a new phone, Chris and I celebrated 6 months of being engaged yesterday. And by celebrated I mean it gave me a perfect excuse to cook steak and drink wine. (o;
In running related news, this past week I ran and walked 3 miles with my co-worker Bala. I also ran with Chris on Friday night (3 miles in 27:21), and my third run was the hash on Saturday (6.55 miles in 1hr 46min... there was quite a bit of walking and climbing through some crazy terrain).
I have also concluded that I am going to be even more picky than usual about the races I enter this year. I am signed up for the 5K that we run annual which only costs $12 when you register early. I am also planning on running next year's Disney Princess Half Marathon. As far as more races this year, I will probably aim for a 10K and maybe a half in the fall since one of my goals this year was to increase my speed. Otherwise, I want to spend my money on non-running related activities. I know, can you imagine?! But I do have other interests that I really want to explore. For instance, I am wanting to take a photography class and try my hand at painting again. I would also like to slowly add some new clothes to my wardrobe, and the big reason is that I am saving for a wedding.
On a sad note, today marks two years since I had to put my dear golden retriever, Syd, to sleep. I still miss him. Here is my tribute from last year.
I hope that you all had a great weekend and that he week is even better (if that is possible)! Did you do anything fun this weekend?
