Niki_Young_NewcomerSuch a good week :) First, I ran the Honolulu Marathon on Sunday — my first one! I finished in 5:11:38, which is a lot better than I was expecting. My goal was just to cross the finish line, and I’m really happy with how I did. It was so much fun! I can’t wait until next year :)

Just yesterday I found out that I’m getting a new job at work! I’m going to be one of the people in charge of physical fitness for the command. It seems to be mostly an admin job, but I like that kind of work. I start on Monday … I’m so excited!

Just today I finally got the last thing I’ve been waiting for to finish off my mini-photo studio. These photos are my first attempts at taking photos with all of my equipment. I still could use another light to balance the shadows on the right side of my face, but for now it works great :)
