Fun Things Friday!

Happy Friday! I hope you have lots of fun in store for this weekend. 🙂

1. My mom is coming home to visit for the weekend!!!! I haven’t seen her in a month and I don’t know if I’ve ever gone that long without seeing her before.

2. I’m wearing new shoes today! That always makes a day better, right? I absolutely love these Toms because they have so much cushion…and they are bright yellow!

3. Even though I am trying to cut down on my dessert intake, I did go to the Cheesecake Factory with friends this week and I did eat a brownie ice cream sundae (I’m not a huge cheesecake fan).

4. Favorite breakfast of the week: Cascadian Farm Organic Graham Crunch with strawberries and vanilla almond milk.

5. National Running Day was on Wednesday. I had to partake in the celebration (of course) and headed out for 6.3 miles at lunch time. It was very hot and humid and the overall 8:20 pace was grueling. Did I really just train for and run a 3:35 marathon??? Sure doesn’t feel like it! The best part of the run was being with friends and getting my Altras back into my shoe rotation.

Tell me something fun about your Friday!

What’s the longest you’ve gone without seeing your family?

Fun Things Friday!

TGIF! Even though this was a short work week for me, it felt like Friday would never come!

1. I ran 5.67 miles with great friends during lunch today. Afterwards, I hopped on the treadmill and made it an even 7 for the day. I left the gym with a big smile on my face. Running = instant happiness.

2. I get to spend 2 whole days with my favorite tiny human this weekend. She does something new everyday and she is so much fun. PS She loves Bobby Flay. We thought she has been saying baby lately, but it’s really Bobby. 🙂

3. It’s finally Tom’s weather. I got new ones (bright yellow) and I can’t wait to wear them.

4. Fresh fruit! I have a love/hate relationship with pineapple, but I am loving it right now.

5. I’m eating this in hopes of making it to Boston next year. 🙂

6. I’m running a race tomorrow morning! It’s a 10k (Sole of the City 10k) and I’m super excited to see what I can do. Has all that speed work paid off?

A great long weekend.

Hi everyone! I hope you had a great weekend and a nice start to your week. Here is a quick recap of my lovely 3-day weekend. (It’s late and I should be in bed, but I had to stay up and watch The Following…which is quite disturbing).

Saturday: long run, diner breakfast, shoe shopping with Kirstyn (AB’s first real pair of walking shoes!)
