I'm totally stuck on my Pinwheels and Elephants table runner.
What I did finish this week, and I'm incredibly proud of was a 6 mile run.
A few of you know, but many of you don't, about 9 years ago I was in a wheel chair. I could barely walk 10 feet. The reason as to why is a very painful story to share, and isn't really important for you all to know. Just know that it took months of extremely difficult physical therapy for me to get out of that wheel chair. Here I am now, running 6 miles. Something I never imagined myself doing 9 years ago.
This year I turn 25, to me, that's a pretty big birthday! So I want to celebrate big. I'm doing the Lehigh Valley Road Runner's South Mountain 10 miler on November 10. If you live in the area, you know that South Mountain is an incredibly steep incline, which I will be running 10 miles of! This is the biggest and best birthday gift I've ever gotten myself. It's also possibly the cheapest ;). I am hoping to have a huge support group there of friends and family cheering me on and helping me celebrate my birthday in my own way!
I will be updating my blog with my progress, I'll most likely be doing this every Sunday.
If you're interested in following my miles daily, follow me on instagram @hoppiquilts with the hash tag #10miletraining.
For now, it's back to quilting. I really need to figure out what I'm doing with that table runner! Today I'm linking up with FMQ Friday (for ideas on my table runner) as well as Can I Get a Whoop Whoop, please visit their blogs that I have listed in my side bar!
