Weekend: Matt’s Birthday + Marathon Training 14 Miler

This weekend was all about celebrating Matt’s birthday, which was on Saturday! Per our tradition, when it’s your birthday in our household you get breakfast in bed. :) Matt never wants anything too big first thing so I kept it low key with some festive toast and one of his famous maple cinnamon lattes! Matt requested we start his birthday with a Continue Reading …

Running in Heat vs. Humidity: which is worse?

The humidity continues! More crazy hot, sweaty runs this week – oof! The first one was a fun run date on Tuesday morning with my high school BFF Jenny. She’s in town visiting and Tuesday was her birthday – fun way to start the day. :) I didn’t want to make her get up too early on her birthday so we started a little after 8 a.m. The extra sleep Continue Reading …

Weekend Food + Fitness

Running for me is a happy, positive thing, and getting up crazy early on my vacation to run 10 miles by myself sounded like the opposite of fun. It was also insanely humid there. So Continue Reading …

Outer Banks Beach Fun

Hi from the beach! We’re in the Outer Banks this week with Matt’s family and the livin’ is easy. I love it here. :) Playing in the waves all day is my favorite – I can stay out in the water forever! Relaxing on the beach is nice too though. :) Sidenote – Matt gave me a S’well stainless steel water bottle for Christmas and it’s the Continue Reading …

Summer Runnin’

Hi from the beach! Matt and I are here for our annual Outer Banks, NC week long beach vacation with his family and family friends. One of my favorite weeks of the year! We made the drive to NC on Saturday afternoon, and before we left I got in a long run for Marine Corps Marathon training. I rocked my new Will Run for Bacon tank – comfy! You’ll Continue Reading …
