Dress: Hush

I got the idea for this outfit from Signe over at The Daily Savant!  She found a cute/creative way to wear a cocktail dress during the day, so I took that and ran with it! I love how it turned out.  It’s especially works, I think, because I also paired it with tights.

I just finished running 3 miles!!  I just have to say that again: THREE MILES! I think that’s the most I’ve ever run in my entire life (and it’s not going to stay that way because I have to run more in the relay haha).  It’s cool how even one week ago, I didn’t think I could run that far, and today I did.  It makes me really excited for the marathon.

When I’m running, I don’t listen to music.  When I first started (a week ago haha), it was because I didn’t like how the little ear buds would bounce out of my ears all the time so I would be distracted by that the entire time.  It gets irritating when you have to keep putting your ear buds back in to get a good groove going.  So I don’t listen to music at all.

Instead, I’ve been listening to God.  A couple of weeks ago at youth, one of my friends led a workshop about breathing.  We breath in and out Yahweh.  I think about that a lot while I was running.  I pray for people who I see who I pass by.  I pray if I happen to see an ambulance or fire truck go by, and mostly I just listen.

At the end of my run, I thanked God for running with me.  I know that without Him, I probably wouldn’t have been able to run as far as I did and I love that.

Have a great week!

xoxo,
Alysa
