A long, hot, steamy shower…

…is the only way I warm up after a cold winter run. πŸ˜‰

I didn’t head out until close to 2 pm today and I didn’t really have a plan or a set number of miles in mind. It was so warm out (read: 30 degrees) and perfect running weather. Well, almost perfect…we had some wind, but it wasn’t bad unless I was in the shade.

I started off with a little over a mile warmup and then headed to a hilly neighborhood to do some hill work. I did 6 hill repeats and it was TOUGH. PS I ran up each hill as fast as I could and then did an easy jog back down. I really wanted to do 10 hill repeats, but I only had the energy for 6.

I continued my run and ended up with 10 glorious miles. I even met a nice man walking his dog and we talked running and races. He suggested the Disney races and I think I’ll have to do the Dopey Challenge next year. πŸ™‚

After a long hot shower, I downed a salad and pizza. I will def eat some dessert later.
Baby Update: Annabelle went to bed at 8:30 and only cried for 10 MINUTES! She was asleep by 8:45 and slept until 7:30. It was a miracle!!!! Day 3 of no bottle has also been a success. She even ate 3 decent meals today. πŸ™‚ I’m a happy mama.

If you need me, I’ll be spending the evening on the couch. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

What was the favorite part of your weekend?


  1. I did the Princess 1/2 Marathon a few years ago and want to do the Dopey Challenge so bad, but I feel like I should run a full marathon before I do a 5K, 1/2 and full marathon 3 days apart! Glad to see Annabelle is being a little angel πŸ™‚ Have a great week!

    • Ahh, how was it! We should totally do this once you are out of school! I hope AB continues this angelic streak. πŸ™‚ Have a good week of class!

      • It was sooooo fun! It’s kind of pricy but it’s really well organized, and the expo is pretty awesome. We should definitely plan for something in the not too distant future!

  2. thats great she went down so fast! Does she just nap once a day?

    • Well, that was for bedtime. She is not a great napper (except for in the car), but i may try to see if I can get her to nap once we have nighttime down. πŸ™‚

  3. Great run! My son is almost 8 and he still doesn’t fall asleep that fast or stay asleep that long!
