It's May!

Happy Birthday Month to me!

Yep, I said month! A couple years ago I decided, having a birthday at the end of the month, it would be fun to celebrate something small every day until the 30th. So - I set out to find 30 fun things to do once May came. Nothing big or fancy - just little things to enjoy in each day. I did the same last year, and though I missed a day or two and sometimes had to get creative to think of something I had done during the day and "make" it into my fun celebration, I still enjoyed it!

So - May is here! And my birthday is in 29 more days (May 30.) And I will be 27 years old this year. (Which a friend and co-worker who happens to be on the way to 26 this year told me is finally when you become and "adult." Thanks, friend...whatever you say! haha Just remember, you'll be there next year!)

Anyway - I decided it would be ok to take a break from homework to tell what I did today that I consider celebration/special.

Birthday Month Day #1 - I enjoyed a low-fat strawberry smoothie at Panera! (And it happened to be a FABULOUS treat after my other accomplishment for the day....running FOUR miles!!)

Yep - I am so excited! I tried a new route today recommended by a runner friend, who told me it was 2 miles long...and I pushed hard and ran the whole thing twice! I was certainly not fast by any means, but I was pretty consistent...and I finished without walking...and there were a few small hills which makes it an even bigger accomplishment to me!

Here's to 29 more days of celebrating me! (I think it's ok to celebrate yourself sometimes...I think we don't do it enough!) Happy May! :)
