I stayed up late (for me) last night making a few updates here at Downsizing. I added social media buttons in the margin to the right, opened a twitter account for this blog, and changed all my internet aliases to downsizingashley (or downsizingblog where downsizingashley was not available). I think all the buttons work, but if anyone has trouble with them, could you let me know? I also added a new photo to the Progress Photos up at the top and made my recipes tab, also at the top of the screen, more user friendly. Check it out and let me know what you think!
In addition, I lost my mind and started thinking about training for a fall half marathon. My longest run to date is 4 miles and I have never even run in a 5k race, but I'm thinking about training for and running a half mary. I have all the big dreams.
In the interest of starting myself down the path to half marathon glory, I decided to chase yesterday's evening run with a morning run. I planned for 3 miles. I did it, but there were stop light (and possibly one or two just because) breaks. I am also fairly certain I looked like a lunatic because once I got to about 2.77 miles I decided I was not going up any more hills, even little ones, so every time I came to a point where the incline rose I turned around and started running the other direction. I did this at least three times and I just hope no one I know saw me.
EDIT: There is a new link up over at A Daily Dose of Del Signore called Motivational Monday. I'm linking up a few days late.
