As I mentioned, I finally took the initiative to get my hair cut. I went to a place called Just Hair and saw Jeffree who was awesome and came complete with scissors tattooed on his forearm and sparkly green nail polish to match his green earrings. I was there for almost 2 hours and it was great. I seriously could have taken a nap. Jeffree did an excellent job and I'm quite pleased with the outcome. I think now that I've found someone that cuts my hair the way I like it (thins it out and uses a razor... I'm not too hard to please) I'll probably keep it this shorter length for a while. Anyway, here are the pics:
I don't really have a before pictures because I never do my hair. The last time I straightened it (and had a picture taken) was for this shot. Otherwise I'm usually looking like some variation of this:

My new style, really isn't shocking or anything all that new, it is what I usually go with when I'm not too lazy to get my hair cut. It will force me to actually do something with my hair on a daily basis (besides wash it) and maybe not look so frumpy all the time. It will however require a little more creativity when it comes to running as I can't stand to wear my hair down when I'm working out. I'm thinking lots of clips and headbands and rubber bands are in my very near future.
Speaking of running, I've only done it once this week... 8 miles, yesterday. My knee held up pretty well, but it's sore again today. I'm going to be
racing participating in the Fall Creek Run Around 20 mile race tomorrow so I've opted to rest my knee another day today and see how things go tomorrow. I definitely won't be "racing". Even when I signed up I knew it would be much more of a training run than a race for me... but it is still a race which means I'm already super nervous about it. Mostly I don't know what to wear. Silly, I know. It's supposed to be sunny but only in the upper 20's. I don't know how warm I'll get. I'm thinking that I'll go capris and a tank with arm sleeves and then a jacket over that. The jacket will give me pockets to carry my fuel in and if I end up getting too warm it ties really well around my waist... but do I want to run 20 miles that way? Hmmmm. Anyway, I think it is going to be a beautiful run, very cold, but beautiful and I'm just going to enjoy it.
So, that's it. It's Friday, which means... it's the weekend! Hooray, enjoy. Happy Running!
Also, when I got home yesterday morning from getting my hair cut, I was greeted by these two cute little guys:
Jonny stayed cuddled up with Dan most of the day. He sure is happy to have his daddy home.
