10 miles and all i got is a bruised toenail

I completed my first 10 mile race! Not quite a half marathon, but pretty darn close. I ran it in 1 hour 43 minutes, which gives me a pace of 10:21, which is fantastic for me! I came in 3,587th out of 4,840 people, so plenty of room for improvement. I did however, run on a bruised toenail, which is now threatening to fall off. But other than that, I am feeling good!

You can see a video of me crossing the finish line here.

See if you can find me - I'm wearing a dark purple shirt.

I also completed a cute little project for my nephew who we are going to see in a couple of days. He loves to play with balls, so I thought this was a super cute idea!

The pattern is called "Oh Balls!" by Marcie Nishioka, and can be downloaded for free from Ravelry. Super fast, I made each of these suckers in about 20 minutes using scraps of yarn. Hope he likes them!
