Shamrock Shuffle 2010

I did it!
I ran in the Shamrock Shuffle this year. I'd always thought about doing it, but was never really into running. At least on purpose. But this was the year! I trained with my friend Molly from work. She'd never really run a race either, so we were both huffing and puffing at first.

She's a real task-master, though, so she was good at pushing me along. Even during the race - "Come on! You can do it!"
I had some supporters root me on - my friend Jessica came down to cheer at mile marker 1. Hubby was there around mile 3 and again at 3.5ish to holler for "Team Dangerfield!" And Molly's husband was there at the last mile.

We had a great time despite the cold weather, but at least it wasn't snowing! My time was one hour, 2 minutes, and 48 seconds. The time to beat for next year!

Wow! It's been way longer than I thought since I last blogged! Lots has happened, but I mostly wanted to show pictures of my amazing new quilt from Mama Urchin. She had me as her swapee during our latest round of the doll quilt swap - DQS8.She made an amazing scrappy log cabin with some beautiful fabrics.

She also sent me a fabulous stack of charm squares with some really great fabrics in there!

Here is another close up. I am in love with this doll quilt! She did such an amazing job!
