It’s Marathon Week!!

Welp! This Saturday is it! My third marathon! I can’t wait!!! This week will be filled with nerves, excitement and mental preparation! I’ll be hydrating like crazy all week long and remaining on my best behavior! 🙂 WOO! CAN.NOT.WAIT! << I mostly can’t wait because I don’t love running in this heat that’s rapidly approaching and as soon as the marathon is over, I won’t need to run outside if I don’t want to! 🙂

So backing up a bit… This weekend was filled with lots of food and lots of activities, per the usual. Saturday morning at 5:30 am, I met up with a friend for a 10 mile run. It was POURING but we did it anyway! We saw tons of deer along the trail which was totally adorable.


This is one of my favorite places to run because it’s full of rolling hills and is so majestic.


Right after I finished that, I met up with Mollz and some others with my man for a 5K in downtown.



The reward at the end was a free beer! Yep! WOOOOO!


And by then, I was starved, so naturally, I loaded up!


After resting up and running errands, my boyfriend and I went out to celebrate a special occasion and we absolutely indulged in an awesome dinner!


Yesterday was spent with more indulgences – a la Easter style! There were delicious treats everywhere and this girl didn’t hold back #yolo



What do you do to prepare during race week?

Will you run in the rain?

What’s your favorite post race meal?

Sweet Relief

Seriously, I know everyone relishes on Friday, but today y’all, I needed it to be Friday. It’s been a long work week and all I have to do is make it through today. Then I can go get in a good run to relieve my frustrations. I can not wait. Is it sad that my Friday night agenda includes a run? Whatever. I love that my boyfriend is all into the plan too. This is why I remain sane – running, and sharing my love for running with the people around me. Thank goodness.

Yesterday I took an unexpected day off from working out. I didn’t mean to, but I stayed at work until almost 7, sat in a butt load of traffic and wound up at a much needed dinner with my boyfriend and some friends. Much needed. Beer + chips and salsa always provide stress relief, no?




I got my guac craving satisfied, finally, after Chelsea @ The Outlaw Life posted her WIAW and it included guac. This stuff hit the spot.

Head over to Leslee’s page @ Her Happy Balance today to get some more loving from me. I guest posted for her while she is bed ridden from getting her wisdom teeth out! Yikes!!!

What would you rather have – guac, salsa or cheese dip? I’m in love with salsa. For sure. Could drink it.

What’s going on this weekend with you? Surprise, surprise, I’m running a 5K tomorrow. Haha. Shocker.
