3 year old Sarah was better at yoga..

Ashtanga!
I felt accomplished last night! I was able to hold my own (unassisted!) handstand for a few moments before losing my balance and needing to come down. It's the pose I've been working on the most because I have never been able to do a handstand. I was a pretty chubby, bookworm kid who detested gym and proclaimed not to have any sort of athletic ability. Ironically, at 3, I was more capable of doing the pose that I find the most difficult now:


You have to balance on your "sitbones" and grab the sides of your feet and hold yourself up. 3 year old me was much better at this than 26 year old me.

Running With The Wolves 10K
My first 10K (ever) is a week from today and while I know I can do it, I'm already slightly nervous. I've actually made plans to go out to the course today to do a test run of it and see how bad the hill is on the return 3 miles, then it's taper week for me.

UGH! I hate taper weeks because I always feel like I have too much energy at the end of the day.

I need jeans!
I've been searching for a pair that will actually fit me correctly. Express Jeans don't cut it anymore. Their 6's gap in my waist but fit my thighs comfortably, but their 4's are perfect in the waist and hip but uncomfortably tight in the thighs. Does anyone have any brand recommendations that I could try?

I've been looking at the Levi's Curve ID jeans but I really want to go to a store to try them on before I buy them.

hope everyone has a good day!
