June 10-16

   Are you ready to see live how a simple system can earn you money from home! Check this out! - http://chumpno1.easyprofit.track.clicksure.com

This past week has been a bit of a rollercoaster for me!  I was doing fantastic with my run streak (5k every day!) and then on Friday I had my wisdom teeth taken out.  Womp womp wommmp.  So that put an end to the streak.  Friday I had no recorded activity :(  But on Saturday and Sunday I did get out for a walk with Randy.

Day 10: Key - This is my favorite key chain!  Repping SC :)

Day 11: Big - BIG cheesy smile for my early morning run!

Day 12:  Black and white:  One of my favorite photos of Randy :)

Day 12:  My new running band to hold my phone finally came in the mail!  And I rocked a solid 4 miles

Day 13: Funny - Wishful thinking that I would come out of surgery to find out I won the lottery! haha

Ready to go!!  Big chipmunk cheeks about to get even bigger!!

On top of everything he did for me that day, I woke up to these one the table :)

Day 14: Flag - It was flag day!  A 1 mile walk, but still no running 
Day 15: Father - An older picture with my dad and sister, it was Father's day as we as Stephie's birthday!

Day 16 - Play - An awesome first game for the US in the World Cup AND I got to run :)  Not too shabby

Medal and bib display board

     I have been wanting to make one of these medal display boards for AGES and I am so glad that I finally did!

It took me a while to conceptualize the certain look that I was going for, I wanted something cute and feminine without being overly girly.  Running is tough business! I think I nailed it :)  It wasn't until after I changed my blog title and IG profile to "On the Run" that I felt like I really had a phrase or motto that I truly wanted represented up there.  Once I found it though, it was one of those epiphany moments as if to say "Of course! How could it have been anything else?!"

It was quite simple to make.  I found a piece of scrap wood in my parent's garage that had the beautiful molding on the top.  The paint is some that I borrowed from my sister, she had it left over from recently repainting her bathroom.  The knobs for the medals I found on clearance at Home Depot and the hooks for the bibs I found at a craft store in the picture frame hanging section (they were originally gold but I spray painted them black to match the knobs).  I also found the gold/white chevron washi tape in the "ribbon sticker" section at the craft store, and the letters were from the scrapbooking sticker section at the same craft store.  I love the letters because they appear sparkly but they aren't glitter, so no mess!

All in all, a very simple project with an awesome outcome that I love!

Woohoo medals :)

Pardon my STREAKING!

I am excited to be in the swing of completing my second T25 round, but in addition (as if I am not busy enough) I have decided to take on a running challenge!

I will be STREAKING from here until the 4th of July!  That's right, STREAKING!

I will run at least 1 mile every day from June 1st - July 4th.  I am aiming for a 5k each day, but let's just see how 1 mile goes!  :: The only kink in my plan is that I am having my wisdom teeth out this week and I am not sure that running will be in the picture.. but I plan to at least walk the distance and keep myself active for the days while I heal!

I can't wait for this to be true!!

So far in two days I have run 6.69 miles!

I will be posting a tally every few days... and maybe a delusional post somewhere in between while I am heavily medicated :)

Join me on Nike+ Running sn: Danielle_ontherun

See you there :)
