FINISHED & Keurig party

I was up at 0630 and ready to go.  I had my coffee, vaselined my feet and was out the door by 0710.  I was nervous, SO nervous.  I swear I was in the bathroom 4 times by 0830.  The gun went off and there I went.   I did a slow and steady pace through mile 4.  I slowed down about 30sec/mile then and it declined from there, but I am PROUD that I jogged the WHOLE thing.  The last mile I kicked whatever energy I had left in me and finished in 2:03.  This is a 12:20/mile pace.  I had SIRI text hubby every mile to keep my encouragement up.  I was pretty emotional at the finish.... bawling to him on the phone like a baby, not sure why... I was just overwhelmed. As I said before, I don't care how fast I go... just that I jog & finish.  I didn't come in last either!!!  About 1500 people came in before me... but I wasn't last.... HA!  Everything has its starting point.  Not sure how long I will do this.... but its definitely not over yet.  Onto the half marathon in 4 weeks!

I came home to the ALMOST finished patio.  Monday they will do the fire pit, cement around the patio to hold it in place, add topsoil and seed and add a stone border around my flowerbed.  Phase 1 is ALMOST done!!!  Then its a bunco party here Saturday.  CANT WAIT!!!

When I got home I showered, dressed and prepped for my Keurig party.  It was fun.  We had coffee, cappuccino and food!  I made my pizza in a pot dip, cookies, fruit and a pinterest YUMMY banana toffee pie.  OMG so good!!!  The kiddos had fun while the mamas enjoyed some great coffee.  Good times for all!  The pie recipe is from here but here is the recipe:
