My Running Valentine

Happy day after Valentine’s Day! (or I guess as some people call it, “cheap chocolate day.”)

I spent my Valentine’s Day with my valentine, and I made him take lots of pictures because it was Valentine’s Day. Yay!

I wore three different outfits yesterday, mostly for convenience and to maximize my festive spirit. I had an 8 a.m. chemistry exam, which went pretty well, but I didn’t want to get all dressed up just to take a test! Allen came to my room before lunch so I could give him his present!

We went to lunch and I had band and poli sci and then we did part one of my present: a run! That’s right folks, Allen and I went on a run together. It was great!

allen1Look at that boy who ran his first two miles 🙂

Happy Valentine’s Day! I love running!

I ordered some bruschetta as an appetizer. Man tomatoes on toast taste SO GOOD.

I wore my new red dress to dinner:

meToday I really have nothing going on, which is kind of wonderful. I have a short response paper (2-3 pages) due for religious studies, so there’s no class! I’m going to work on that and then just relax the rest of the day. Tomorrow is the big race day and I’m getting excited!
