On the quilting front, it has been a very productive couple of days. I got three labels made and sewn on. I sign my name differently on the quilt depending on the recipient. If it is one I plan to keep or give to family, I sign my maiden, and two last names. One of them is the last name of my first marriage and my son and his family. I want to be sure my great grandchildren will be able to identify their heritage in my quilts..
....and I finished the quilting on my scrappy star quilt. I've had the blocks on my design wall for about 5 years and finally decided to put them together with plain cream and white squares. It turned out adorable and I love it so much. It will go on one of the twin beds I plan to build for my grand children.
On the running front, I had an incredible, wonderful, endorphin filled run yesterday. I hate running in the summer due to the heat and humidity. Yesterday morning I really needed to do a longish run so I went out fairly early for me. It drizzled rain the whole six miles. Glorious. My heart rate didn't get up as high as normal, my pace was a little faster, and if felt, oh so good.
Running has been the best exercise for me in my whole life. I walked for years but it didn't do for me, what running has - reduced my resting heart rate, increased my bone density, and given me strong leg muscles to name a few. I admit some runs are just hard, but some are like this one - awesome. I only run three times a week, and do the Jeff Galloway run/walk/run method. Currently I am doing 2 minutes of running to 30 seconds of walking.
