When we do our long runs on Saturday, we usually like to drive somewhere that's not so flat. Flat=Boring! When we don't have time to do that, we run around here. For some reason, the Wal-Mart in Johnson Ranch has become a great running destination. It's funny to say "I ran to Wal-Mart, literally." It's exactly 10 miles from here so yesterday Karolee and I ran there and back making it a nice 20. Stacia ran there with us last week. We actually ran up the hill that's right behind the store. Did you know there are a ton of houses behind Wal-Mart? I had no idea. We took pictures of us back there but for some reason, they didn't get saved on my camera phone. Hmm, maybe you have to be smarter than the phone. Anyway, when we finished with our run on Ocotillo, guess what we found?
Camels! Just chillin with a donkey in a pen. That's Karolee giving them some yummy weeds. Now if that's not totally awesome, I don't know what is!
I took a picture of my shoes when I was done running. I wish my camera phone wasn't so old skool because then you could see how beat up my shoes really are. And I got them about 3 weeks ago! I don't mind that they look worn, they represent all of my hard work that I've been doing. I started tracking my miles since the first week of December (when I got my GPS watch) and I'm just 3 miles away from 200 miles! Just a year and a half ago, that would have seemed impossible to me. It's amazing what a mom with 3 little kids can do if she sets her mind to it!
