Rex Lee Run

Liberty and I ran the Rex Lee Run today and it was really fun but also really hard for me. I am at the beginning stages of getting sick so my throat hurts and stuff but we never walked. I am so proud of us. We both knew we wanted to walk but neither of us suggested it. Chrissy did it too, but she took off and then at the end of the race, we couldn't even find her. It turns out she really wanted to win a raffle prize. Silly girl. Libby and I ran it in 50 minutes and 20 secs. Not marathon runners, but we didn't care. We just wanted to do it. Actually, Libby's mom paid for me to do it because I told Libby I couldn't afford it. That was sooo nice of her. We want to do another 5k in April, but actually train for it. For this 5k, all we did was walk a 5k path two days before the actual day of the run. That was pretty dumb of us. Anyway, maybe I'll become a marathoner. And Drew is an excellent fan. We was at the finish line with water for Libby and I. He's so good to me.

Our Camera Pickle

Drew and I wanted a really nice camera since we are going to New York and everything, so we started looking around and Drew looked online a little bit and then today we decided to actually go out shopping. We had already looked at Wal-Mart and today we looked at Circuit City and Best Buy. While we were at Best Buy, we decided on a camera. It's a Canon, super nice, but it also cost $300. Well, after we made the purchase, we went up on campus and started looking around and found the same camera for $203 with free shipping and handling! Dang it. So we ordered that one and we are going to take the Best Buy camera back. Man, who knew a camera could be so much drama. Anyway, this is just preparation for New York!!!
