Marine Corps Marathon + 10k Bib Giveaway!

Hi friends! I was up early this morning to take advantage of the gorgeous weather. It’s crisp and cool out there – perfect for a run date, or, as I’m currently 28 weeks pregnant, a walking date! :) As the weather cools down I know those of you training for fall races will start seeing faster times and more enjoyable runs – you’ve earned it Continue Reading …

Back on the Run!

You guys – I’m back on the run!! And by back on the run, I mean I’m back to incorporating some jogging into my walking routine, but this is really exciting because I seriously miss those endorphins!

Spring has Sprung!

You guys – DC is so gorgeous right now. The flowers! The sunrises! The weather! It’s glorious. We all know the signature crushing DC summer heat and humidity will arrive quickly, so we’re soaking up spring while we can. On Tuesday, my friend Sokphal and I dragged ourselves out of bed for a morning run date. The resulting sunrise tulip view Continue Reading …

Weekend

Hey friends! It was a lovely weekend in DC, and Matt and I took full advantage with lots of outdoor adventures! I love spring in DC. :) We kicked off the weekend Friday with dinner at my parent’s – my mom made us steaks and taco salad, which is my favorite childhood salad. Sooooo good. I have written about this salad before, if you want more Continue Reading …
