Run Fast

Happy Monday!  I had a great weekend!  I ran a 5k this past Saturday :)  Yay me!  I will tell you all about it in a minute, but first, I want to share a card I made that I am sending to a friend who also did the race.  Here it is:


Isn't it cute?  The stamp set is from Close to my Heart - in fact, everything is from CTMH except the ribbon.  The layout is simple, but showcases the stamp, which I really like.  I hope my friend likes it :)

So the race I was in, was called Sole Sisters.  It was a women only 5km run with no clock.  You could run, or walk it, and everyone who finished got a medal!  The morning was POURING, but by the time we got to the pre-race stuff, the sky was blue!  There were 1500 women participating.


As we walked to the start line, it started to pour again, and just before the start, there was thunder and lightning!  The race was VERY wet - I was soaked and freezing by the end.  I was pretty grateful for the dinner and hot bath that were waiting for me when I got home.


Here are me and my neighbor Michelle at the end of the run with our sparkly, blingy medals.  We had a great time, despite the weather.  I have already signed up for next year!



I hope you all come back tomorrow.  I will have a new project to share with you.

A challenge or two for my cute little card:
Stampin Sisters in Christ - use an image showing action
Stampavie and More - for a girl
Sunday Stamper - pretty in pink
Bunny Zoe Challenge - girls, girls, girls
Craft Your Passion - anything goes
Make it Monday - anything goes
Simon Says Stamps and Show - anything goes

A la prochaine...
