6.2 measly miles

On Monday I ran in the Memorial Day "Run of Remembrance" 10k. I fulfilled my goal of finishing in under an hour and after crossing the finish line I spent the rest of the day hobbling around, laying on the floor and feeling grrrreat!

I've been running recently and I'm not sure where my motivation came from, but the more I run, the more I enjoy it. I'm currently training to run in a half marathon on June 9th and am definitely not quite ready yet. My goal is just to finish with all my bones, muscles and tendons in working order. I think by the end of the year I'll be able to keep up with this guy:

The Smuggling Gang

As part of the amazingly amazing movie club that I am a part of, I've been able to watch several movies that have really grown on me. One that definitely deserves some honorable mention is:

The Brothers Bloom

It's a fantastic movie with n story-line of two brothers working as con artists. They plan a con within a con that ultimately ends up with a great ending. I've watched it several times already and there's always something new that I didn't notice before. It's just like reading the Book of Mormon! Maybe Ill just count this movie as my scripture study.

Also, I really like the soundtrack:

It's a cult classic that probably is not for everyone because of its mildly artsy content and charming nature. But for anyone who hasn't seen it and wants to watch it, let me know and we'll call a movie night.
