26...

I did it! I ran a 5 K on May 28th. The race, it turns out, was really supposed to be a walk, but Once the 10k runners caught up, James and I jogged anyway. We did it nice and slow which is just the way I liked it. We came in somewhere around 31 or 32 minutes.
I'm still running though! Today I started working on running faster rather than just working on distance. I ran 2.5 miles in 19 minutes and 52 seconds. So I can now run just as fast as myself at 13. Not that 13 year old Leslie would have ever ran 2.5 miles.

So, next month I'm going to try and do the piano practice one. I need to get on that, but it is really hard to find time. I'm just going to have to force myself to do it. If for some reason I fail, I'm close to finishing my 30 dreams goal too.

In other news, my Mom and Ryan have been seriously changing their front yard. Check this out.


I feel okay posting this here because I gave much blood, sweat, and tears to that yard removing bushes and planting stuff when I was younger. They took out all the grass and put in an edible garden. They have more photos on facebook you should really check out.

What have you all been working on this month?
