Whaoo... new sneakers!

Once again... WAR EAGLE!!! Ok I got this out of the way

Well... i am pretty excited. I just got a new pair of running shoes. In my new running world, i have worn out a pair of running kicks just from running. I think i have worn them 3 or 4 times other than running, and they are officially worn out!!!!! This might not seem like a big deal, but i am pretty excited to have a second pair.

I went on my first run in my new shoes this afternoon, about 3 miles, and it was alright! I am going swimming tomorrow morning, so i will have to wait until Tuesday morning to try them out again.
Kind of excited!

So here is my play time schedule for the next week:
Monday: swim am
Tuesday : 3 mile run am, Ultimate Frizbee pm
Wednesday: Swim am
Thursday: 3 Mile Run am
Friday: swim am, 1.5 mile run pm
Saturday: 5 mile Run am
Sunday: off!

So the auburn tigers kicked ass tonight, and it was a great game.

I have been ragged by all of the lovely folks at sweets about auburn's performance this year and tonight made it all worth it. We kicked Florida's ass! Not by much but we did it! We won a major game! Hells yeah! And a final war eagle for the night!

Dinner Impossible

Update on the Fence for Patience

So, we have raised all of the money for Miss Patience's Fence. I told her that she was getting her white picket fence and she was so excited, she had to take a seat. So Thank you to everyone who bought a shirt or donated to the fund!

As an update to this we are working to get it all moving. There are a few things that need to happen for the fence building to start.

First, Miss Patience has an old power pole right in the middle of her front yard. Why they put it there, i do not know, but we are getting that removed. Mississippi Power has agreed to come take it down, but there is a cable line and a phone line that are still attached to it, and those need to be moved, so we are trying to get the phone company and the cable company to come move those.

Once that is done, hopefully this week, Miss Patience needs a walk way. This can be done in a day. Maybe saturday, while the posts for the fence are being set. Sunday, if all goes to plan, we can build her a fence. Oh i cannot wait to actually get working on this thing. So thank you to everyone!!!! Biloxi Hearts You!

I will announce the next I heart Biloxi Project soon!
