Friday Fun XIII

My 13th version of this post! That’s my lucky number! I guess that means I better make this one reeeaaaallly good? I’ll try.

  1. Bachelorette Fun. My very good friend Sofia is getting married on November 1st and I am currently en route from NYC–>Long Island for her bachelorette festivities. I have known Sofia for almost 9 years and she is a dear friend. We met in 2006 when her and her twin sister, Carolina, were in my training class at work. We hit it off right away and the two of them ended up playing a big part in me meeting, getting engaged to and then eventually marrying Brad. I am absolutely over the moon for Sofia and Thomas and can’t wait to spend the weekend celebrating her in the North Fork of Long Island. We are going to have a campfire on the beach, visit some wineries and maybe do a little kayaking. The weather is predicted to be perfect and I am also excited to explore a little on foot with a few runs during the trip.

  2. Chicago Marathon. In two weeks and two days, I will finally be running the Chicago Marathon. My training went very well and I am ecstatic about the three HUGE workouts that I had in my final peak week of training. The next couple of weeks will be spent repairing my body by cutting back mileage and intensity, but also trying to stay sharp and bottle up some energy. I hope that I can nail the taper and then I am really looking forward to seeing if all the hard work will pay off.
  3. Stitch Fix Wins. In my last Fix, I got two items that I absolutely LOVE. First were these maroon pants that are perfect for fall.IMG_1885.JPGAnd this pink-ish dress.IMG_1887.JPG
  4. Pretty Little Liars. I know, I know I am about 4 years late on this one. Last weekend when I was laying on the couch resting up for my long run on Sunday, I decided I needed a new Netflix obsession. I scanned what was “popular” and landed on Pretty Little Liars. I hadn’t seen a single episode and didn’t even know the premise, but it sounded like perfect mindless TV to rest up for then recover from my long run. In less than a week I have now seen 25 episodes…but with 96 total over 4 seasons, I still have a LONG way to go.
  5. This recipe. Have I posted this before? It’s okay if I did because if you haven’t already made this, do it now! It is healthy, delicious, easy and filling. I cut the recipe in half and still get 3 meals (for myself) out of it. {P.S. IMO you don’t even need the extra BBQ sauce as dressing}. Also the last time I made it, I used store bought hummus instead of making my own. Because marathon training. Duh.
  6. Yoga. Repeat offender. It is always on my list of favorite things and when I get out of a routine then go back, I struggle to figure out WHY I stopped going in the first place.
  7. This Video. My dogs love eating the crunchy ice from our ice machine but Ernie likes for me to put it on the ground and let him pick it up himself. I think it is hilarious to watch his dramatic reaction to when I try to hand him the ice to him. (side note: can anyone tell me how to make videos a normal size on here?!)

Have a great weekend, my friends!

  1. I’m excited to see how you so in Chicago in 2 weeks, I’ve been enjoying your weekly training recaps.They’ve got me itching to do another marathon 🙂
    I got my first Stitch Fix last week & LOVED IT. My only disappointments were a “meh” sweater I didn’t really like, and pair of pants that were just my style, but too long 😦 not bad for a first fix though!
    Also your dog is hilarious. He looks like he’s shaking his head no when you offer the ice 😉
