The Sunday Post #15 (3.16.14)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.   

I've decided to try a new weekly meme - a place where I can do both a weekly wrap up and share what books I get all in one post, so I'm going to give The Sunday Post a try, and also link up with Sheila's It's Monday Post over at Book Journey.  


Me & Mom at finish line

I did it - I walked my first 1/2 marathon and beat my goal (3 hours 15 minutes). I finished in 3 hours 3 minutes!!! It was so much fun and I was glad my mom was there to do the walk with me. She finished in 3 hours 12 minutes!!! We had a great time in DC, doing quite a bit of sight-seeing while there and since we had so much fun doing our first 1/2 marathon have decided to sign up for another one!
 

Have a great week everyone!!!
