Triathlon Training Continues: Brick Workout #2!

Hello, hello! Thanks for all the great feedback on my new blog header! I’m so glad you guys love it, too. It’s so weird to come to my blog and have it look so different, heh! A huge thank you to my awesome graphic designer Bailey, who designed the header for me. If you’re looking for graphic design services, give her a holler! She also made me a Continue Reading …

Bike + Run: Our First Triathlon Brick Workout!

Hello and happy Sunday, friends! Matt and I have had a great weekend here in Chapel Hill. Yesterday, we did our first “brick” workout for triathlon training! A brick workout is just a bike workout followed immediately by a run. I’m not sure why it’s called brick, but I’m guessing it’s because that’s how your legs end up feeling ;) To make the Continue Reading …

Biking the Potomac & Salads at Sweetgreen

When I was packing to come up to D.C., I checked the weather and saw it was going to be especially gorgeous yesterday, on Saturday. I decided to throw my bike in the car and take advantage of the opportunity to hit up some DC trails! I went out yesterday morning without any real thoughts on how far I wanted to go — I just figured I’d see how Continue Reading …

An Easter Brunch Feast & A Daffodil Run!

Good morning! I’m back in Chapel Hill feeling refreshed after my nice relaxing weekend in Pittsburgh. It was SO worth it to spend all last week busting my butt so I could take the weekend off from homework! Only 1.5 weeks until I’m done with my first YEAR of grad school. Bring it, finals! I hope you all had a nice (Easter, if you celebrate it) Continue Reading …

Bike Pittsburgh

Hello from Pittsburgh! It was supposed to be super gross and rainy out all day today, but we got lucky! Apparently Matt and I brought the sun with us from NC :) Matt, his parents, and I all headed into the city today to explore by bike! There are trails stretching along the river on both sides — so nice! Matt’s parents brought their Continue Reading …

Signing up for my first triathlon!

Goooooooooooood morning! Guess what I just did? Signed up for my very first triathlon! :) I signed up for the Swim for Smiles Sprint Triathlon on July 24, 2011, right here in Chapel Hill! And guess what? Matt’s going to do it with me, too! :) I think it will be a great first triathlon to do because it’s super low pressure. It’s a “family” Continue Reading …

The Perfect Sunday

Yesterday was just about the perfect Sunday — it involved playing with Tina, ice cream at Maple View Farm, and biking with Matt in the beautiful NC sunshine (which rudely hid until Tina left, lame)! (Disregard the awkward self-timer photo, heh) Our day began in Carrboro, the cute hippie town right next to Chapel Hill. I took Tina to one of my Continue Reading …

Sand Volleyball for the win!

Good afternoon, friends! Another Biochem exam has come and gone… even though I felt like I was really prepared for this one, I still don’t think I did all that great on the test. Sigh. Oh well, it’s over, right?! :) Minus studying flash cards, I had a fantastic rest of my weekend and I hope you all did, too! The weather was beautiful yesterday Continue Reading …
