Running in God’s World

This is one reason why I love to run!

I love being outside-this is the perfect picture of peace and beauty in my opinion.

I ran 3 miles in 36 minutes. It felt so good to be back out on the road again! Literally.

We had a little field day for our 6th graders today-REAL informal. We took them to the practice field around 9:30. Played kickball til lunch-some of them played baseball, listened to ipods, sat around, etc. After lunch we went BACK to the practice field until time to go home. I played a game that I had never heard of that was pretty fun-5000. Someone throws the kickball high in the air behind them(their back is to the group). Whatever number the thrower calls out is the amount of points the catcher gets. If the thrower doesn’t call out a number and someone catches it they lose all their points. I won one time. Short people don’t fare too well in this game! 🙂

Here is a picture of one our boys(Kerrion)-he wanted me to take his picture but not quite like that!

I love catching them in awkward poses!!

I couldn’t get a good picture of this one(Rikishi)-he ALWAYS runs from me when I have my camera! But it was priceless seeing these HUGE yellow earphones on!

And check out Kendrell with the big “diamond” in his ear!

I FINALLY got a picture of this hilarious t-shirt. Every time Will wore it I would forget my camera or forget to take a picture-imagine that!

It felt like a crazy day today. I had a meeting for all the students who are interested in being on the track team next year. 25 students showed up! That is like “WOW”. We only have around 420 students in our entire K-12 school. And I think we only had about 6 students on it last year. I am super excited!! I might even have a few more tomorrow and Friday since they are taking exams and some might not have been at school today because of being exempt.

Run Wadley Run! 🙂

We had to figure out who all gets to go to the “grades incentive” party tomorrow. The grades in my homeroom class were MUCH better this six weeks than last. 23 of my 26 students get to attend the party. 🙂 We will be going on the playground from 1-2:30 and I they can buy popsicles. 🙂

After school we had a baby shower for 2 of our teachers who are due this summer. The food was GREAT!

I cleaned up my room a little after that, went home, ran my 3 miles, and cooked supper. Whew! Did NOT make it to the board meeting.

Since I absolutely LOVE what I cooked for supper tonight I’m going to share it with you. It’s pretty common. It’s called “Shipwreck”.

1/2 lb sliced bacon

1 lb ground beef

1 cup ketchup

1 large onion(I left this out-not because I don’t like onions but because remember?? I can’t remember anything lately!!)

1/2 cup brown sugar (Or more!)

1 large can baked beans

I also diced a bell pepper and cooked it with the ground beef.

Cook beef, onion(if YOU can remember, and bell pepper). Cook bacon. Mix in ketchup, brown sugar, crumbled bacon and baked beans.

Bake in 9X13 pan for 45 minutes at 350 degrees. Mmmm…mmmm..good!

Well, I think that’s all I had to say tonight. So.tired. 🙂

There is NOTHING wrong with me!!!

YEA!!! I ran today for the 1st time since last Wednesday. And did NOT eat the side of the house like I did yesterday!! I’m telling you-I have been EATING lots since last Friday night! I guess I just fell off the wagon.

But got back on it today! And it felt so good!

Ran 2 miles in just under 23 minutes-a little under an 11:30 mile pace. Then I walked just over a mile. Boy, have I missed running this past week. Now I am complete. 🙂

Thanks to those of you who sent me positive comments yesterday and today!!! You helped me get on my feet again!! Love my bloggy friends!


Just not feeling it….

All day I had been looking forward to running after school. End of school had a parent conference, talked with co-teacher about state testing coming up, and the desire to run ran. Away from me! 🙂 So I ended up just running/walking a mile with one of the ladies training for a 5k.

However, I am making up for it be the dinner that I am eating! Grilled fish and broccoli! I have never had grilled fish at home-only when I have gone out to eat. I actually just had to bake this in the oven because it’s the kind of filets that come in the handy dandy box. We’ll see how good they are. Can you believe there are only 90 calories in each filet? With 16 grams of protein? WOW! I guess that’s why they say to eat a lot of fish! 🙂 Here’s a picture of this hopefully scrumptious dinner!

OK-I just started eating, and it is sooooo good! It’s cajun seasoned. I know what I’ll be buying more of in the near future! If I could only get my family to eat it-my kids said DO NOT COOK FISH FOR THEM! 🙂 My husband only eats fried catfish and that’s maybe 2-3 times each year. I guess I’ll just have to make my own sometimes, but it sure will be hard NOT to eat what they are having. 🙂

Well, I’m about to finish supper, MAYBE do my ab workout, do some school stuff, read, and head to bed in a little bit. Goodnight bloggy friends!
