My 1st New Car!

Well, after the constant drama from The Piece, JJ and I decided that rather than wait a few months, it would be best for me to go ahead and get a new car. So after some research and test driving, I decided that a 2010 Jetta is the car for me!
So meet Frau, my new car!!! (Frau means Mrs. in German) 

I've never gotten a brand new car before, I'm so so so excited!!!
It was so hard to decide until I went for the test drive. On paper, so many cars looked the same. But when I got in this car, I knew it was for me! My selling point was the crash test ratings and side air bags as I'm a really paranoid driver and I'm so scared of car crashes.

So yeah, JJ made me do this pose...

My family's heritage is 100% German, so I'm so happy to support the motherland... haha

So anyway, no exercise today since I ran 15 miles over the weekend. Tomorrow Lou and I are going to run the bridges downtown. Then I'm planning for strength training Wed. and Thurs.
I'm contemplating running 11 miles on Saturday, I feel really good today! I actually think I got too much sleep over the weekend, I kept waking up last night and at 6:30, I was wide awake! So I think I'll be ok to do 11 on Saturday, then the half the next Sunday.

I'm off to do some housework and watch TV, have a fantastic night!

  4. Congrats on the car! Watch out for cows! My old boss had a Jetta and she hit a cow in it, and it took 5 weeks to get the right hood in! Silly story, but I figured I'd warn you since cows seem to like Jettas! :)

  14. Congrats on the new car! I have a Jetta Diesel and we owned a Golf for MANY years. Only thing we find with the Jetta is it's a little bit small for the family. My son (who is only about 5'11") does not fit in the back seat - he's all legs. And my daughter isn't much better. It's wicked on mileage though.
