Grateful Saturday - Finish lines and Farmer's market

#26 / 27 runs of Couch to 5k are completed.
After 9 weeks I will complete my final run Monday.
The finish line is in sight but it won't be the finish because I am in training for the Mother's day classic.
Running is still a challenge for me, though I enjoy it, I ache the day after :).

Last week my hubby almost reached his 'finish line' in regards to a project that has been 10 months long. A huge relief that this hurdle has been cleared.

We went to the Country farmer's markets this morning. I chatted to lots of people about olives , tasted a few goodies and met a neighbour who 'raises' bees & honey. She has lived there 30 yrs and told us a few interesting things about our property.
PS Our olives don't look too good as a few weeks ago- (shriveling up) I think the dry spell has affected them...oh well next year.
So, what's making you smile today?

Great attitude, Trish - both the olives 'always next year' and the finishing your running goals. Really impressive. x

Well done on the running milestones. Must feel great to have achieved that fitness. I run a lot and I love it, for me it's like meditation. My knees don't like it so much! And how much do I love Aussie olive oil, since my return from almost 10 years in Europe I have been so impressed with the Aussie stuff and never buy imported now!

Happy running, that's a lot of kms, well done. The magic of Farmer's Markets, we plan to farm all our own vegetables to feed ourselves & hopefully friends too. I can't wait!! My post today is about practising my farming skills, love Posie
