Happy Spring Break to me! In case you can’t tell, I am super excited to head to Cabo on Sunday with my other half and relax in the sun with a cocktail and endless amounts of yummy food. I guess endless amounts of cocktails too, I ain’t gonna lie!
Brandon and I celebrated five years of
being awesome together being married in September, but wanted to set up a fun trip to celebrate. We booked our Cabo trip a few months ago and we’re both so ready for our little getaway. I’ll take lots of pics to share when I get back! Make sure you follow me on the Insta to see some pics 🙂
As you know, I just completed my third half marathon! I ran 4 slow, easy miles on Thursday and although my legs are still feeling a bit stiff and heavy, it was nice to get back out there. I doubt I’ll exercise while I’m on vacation (does walking on the beach count? Walking to get cocktails?), but once I return home it’s time to start training again! I’m running the St. Michael’s half on May 21st. This one is special to me because not only was it the first half marathon I’ve ever run, but I actually get to run right past my Grammy’s driveway! The course is nice and flat, so I’m looking forward to no hills!
Even though I didn’t meet my 2:00 goal time in my last half, I came super close at 2:05. My goal for my next half is to finish in 2:00 or just under that, but with seven weeks to train, I wasn’t really sure where to start and what to do. I hemmed and hawed for a bit, then decided to try working with a coach! I chatted with Laura the other night and am really excited to work with her. I like that she’ll take all the guesswork out of developing a plan, and that I’ll have someone to check in with on a regular basis to see how things are going and tweak things as needed. All I have to do is follow the plan and give it my best shot. I’m excited to share my next training cycle with you guys!
Also, since it’s Friday, I gotta share a couple things I’m currently loving!
1. House of Cards. I freaking love this show, and I’m seriously loving the newest season. The last season was a little ‘meh’ for me, but the current one is juicy and full of drama! Brandon and I differ on our thoughts on Claire Underwood though–I think she’s fierce!
2. Wedding Season! It’s that time of year again, when everyone gets married! Brandon and I have two weddings in May we’re attending, and we’re so excited for both. They’ll both be little weekend getaways too, which makes it even more fun! I love dressing up, hanging with my squad, and bustin’ a move on the dance floor!
3. Flo Rida ‘My House.’ This song is my jam!! Also I totally identify with it, because sometimes you just don’t feel like going out and just want to party at your own crib where you don’t have to pay a cover or deal with annoying people. I’m definitely playing this song when Brandon and I have our backyard bash in June. Flo totally gets me.
I hope you guys have an awesome weekend! Can’t wait to catch up after my trip!
