3 Miles = 5 Kilometers!

(so no, this is not me)
Yes, I ran 5k this morning and that in 36 minutes: not bad aye?  <wink>

It was amazingly cold however (33F = 1C) so as a reward for all my hard work over the last two months, I treated myself to some new running gear: a duo-dry tight fitting long sleeved shirt, a cool cap and some gloves, because boy, I had to hide my thumbs in between my fingers to keep them warm!

I also got my flu-shot taken care of at the Target Pharmacy (love that one-stop shopping!) so I'm all set for the winter to come...

After Target I also stopped by the Value Village (= second hand store) and just look at these four awesome chairs I found for $5 each!!!

I really don't need any more dining chairs (truth be told, already four others are hiding in the cupboard under the stairs) but I just couldn't leave without them. I might leave them in this wood tone for now, but I'm already thinking that I also might paint them white to match the dining room table. We'll see...

Well, that is it for now! Hope your day was as splendid as mine!  {smile}


  1. Die stoelen zien er goed uit! Zijn ze vam een bepaalde designer!

  2. Yes, warm clothes definitely needed! Those chairs are just like some my Mum brought in the 70s! :)

  3. Whoehoe knap zeg! Heb je dat in 2 maanden bereikt? (van de bank tot 5km?)

  4. 5 kilometer....NICE!!!!!! Echt super knap! Ik hoop je snel te volgen.. tot nu toe 3 keer gerend. Ik kon ooit 50 minuten achtereen rennen, geloof dat dat in mijn geval ruim 6 km was (ga niet zo snel ;)

    Leuke stoelen! Ik moet ook op zoek naar twee stoelen voor de eettafel. De verf heb ik al: diep aqua blauw en diep geel :D

  5. I love those chairs! And they look quite comfortable too!
    Kram, Monica

  6. Sometimes it is just not possible to pass up a bargain like that!
    Well done on the running. Do you and the son ever run together?


How wonderful to hear from you!

At the Lake...

To celebrate our last days together, Miss M. and I decided to go on a walk to Rattlesnake Lake, just past North Bend, WA. It was ...
