Three Things Thursday!

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I've posted! Things have been crazy around here!
1) I got a PR in my 5k from May 1 - it was a 5k run to benefit Autism and I finished in 28:32! I was shocked - almost a minute faster than my previous PR! Woop woop!
2) I have officially sold over 100 scrapbooks on my Etsy site (check it out HERE), the majority being Runner's Race Bib Books which are made to hold race bib numbers. I have been very busy trying to keep up with the demand, which seems to have grown since racing season is in full effect.
3) I now know what it's like to live in Seattle and London. Today was our 5th day in a row of not seeing the sun and we still may not see it until Sunday. It has done a number on my already lazy-motivation. Once again, if I have not dished out the money for a longer race, I just have a hard time getting out there. Once I get out for my run, I am back in love with running, but just getting going has been tough lately.
Hope everyone has a great weekend! We're doing a small 5k right here in our town to benefit a local dyslexia school. Hopefully the rain holds off for a little bit at least!

Rock 'n' Roll Providence coupon code

Anyone interested in running the Rock 'n' Roll Providence Half Marathon? I have a $10 coupon code if you register by 5/25/11. Use the code ROCKON and receive $10 off your entry. Wish I could do this one, it's the inaugural 13.1 RNR for Providence and it's only about an hour from our house. Oh well, maybe next year! But I wanted to pass on the code so others could use it. Enjoy :)
