Note to Self: Don' run in the summer.....

So....running last night in the 90 degree weather was a BAD idea! very bad. haha! I'm laughing about it now. During my run yesterday I seriously contemplated sitting now on the side of the road hoping someone would pick me up. Anyone? Bueller? It was rough. Even though it was miserable....I still added 12 minutes to my run! woot! I think it took me about 2 hours afterward to fully recover!!!

I'm glad I can say that I DID IT!



Over the weekend, we took the jr. & sr. youth out for STARS. It stands for Students Taking A Right Stand. It's just a prom alternative for them. They get dressed up, we go to a fancy restaurant, stay in a hotel and go to Six Flags! It's a really fun event for them. I will share more pictures of that later this week.




On another note.....it is crazy what God is doing in my life right now! The past week God has been showing me things, using books, songs and bringing people into my path that have really been speaking to me. It's like God is saying "Hello Amanda" "Listen to Me"!!!!! All these little things I believe God is using to mold me and help me through a few situations I am facing. I am so thankful! God is so good and He is faithful! This is a quick picture from the STARS trip we took with the youth group! :) I still love dressing up with my hubby! He looked goooooood!



Hope ya'll are having a beautiful day so far!


Rejoice in this day and be GLAD!!!!



HUGS!

Running in the heat is the worst! I have to do it in the early morning. Even by 9 am is too hot! God is faithful!

I LOVE that picture of you and your hubs!!!! Your hair is SO CUTE! And dressing up is so fun :)

Running in the heat is awful. Be glad you dont live in FL where the humidity makes you feel like you are suffocating. Right now, I am enjoying nice runs in the cool evening. Well cool to FL people...like 70. <3
