Seconds the Best!

You guys sure know how to make a girl blush! Thanks for all the lovely comments about my dress last night :).

Well our bags are pack and Hubby and I are headed out until Tuesday for our staff retreat (and we get paid for it). I had to blog really quick and let you all know how my 10k Lighting the Way Race went this morning :).

It was a late start 8:30am, I actually got to sleep in until 6:30am! This made it a lot easier to have something small, AB+Toast+Honey before heading out. I am still a bit under the weather but I was going to put my best foot forward!

It was a bit chilly so I wore my Boston jacket that I love OH so much to warm up in. I got a new iPhone case, silicone $5 at Marshalls!

I laced up my shoes and put my timing chip on and was ready to go!!!

How fast is Fast Jill? Because YOU are super fast, so I can't even imagine how fast someone is that you call fast!! :)

I've been meaning to tell you -- Hopkinton, MA (The start of the Boston Marathon) is my hometown!! I'll be here for the race (it's like a holiday in our little town). Let me know if you have questions about anything around here in the months leading up to April!
