Non-Scale Victory

I like to come on here and announce little non-scale victories that I encounter sometimes. I purchased a Disney shirt from the Disney Store about 4 years ago when I first started dating my husband. It was on clearance and I grabbed what I thought was a size XXL. Purchased it, Never tried it on mind you..., took it home, washed it and then looked at it. Man it looked mighty small to be a size 2xl. I then looked at the tag and realized I had picked up a size xl and not the size I needed. Oh what was I going to do? I couldn't take it back? I had already washed it. I put it in a bag and forgot about it, thinking I would never be able to wear it.

Well it wasn't until Tuesday night just before heading out to Olivia's chorus concert that I decided to try it on. I was almost in tears! The shirt fit! It actually fit! The sleeves on it were too big! OMG! I could not believe it! Have I actually hit a mini goal of mine and that was getting into a size xl shirt and it being just a little big on me? How did that even happen? I don't know? I need to get back into my running and training but I haven't been feeling much like it since the pollen has taken over. I need to get off my high horse and just run! I need to train!

I need to find a race and just run it! I haven't really run since the half marathon and well it's a little scary since the last time I actually ran I injured myself. Will it happen again? I don't know? I guess the only thing left to do is take it easy and slow. We are headed to the mountains this weekend and boarding the dog tomorrow. It's Olivia's birthday weekend and if it's not raining we plan on taking her and her best friend hiking. This should be fun!
