A Speedy 5 Miler + Brunch

Awesome run yesterday morning with my college BFF Turner! Yes, we’re weird. Turner, Kris, and I headed over to the Tobacco Trail in Durham for a late morning run. Kris set off on her own (she prefers running by herself and wanted to go with a slower pace), and Turner and I started out at what felt like a good clip. The first mile flew by; it Continue Reading …

Going Car Free for the Day

Matt and I took our bikes out to play on Sunday! Being out of town a bunch on weekends lately meant that our bikes have been a little neglected, so when Matt suggested we take them out for a spin on Sunday I was more than happy to oblige! Matt planned out a big loop through some of the country roads near us. It was a GORGEOUS day — 70 and Continue Reading …

Our First Triathlon — Cancelled :(

Friends, I have some very sad news. Me and Matt’s first sprint triathlon next weekend was cancelled :( Sigh. As you can imagine, we’re both really bummed. Not only was this our very first triathlon, but we had been training for it for awhile now with brick workouts, etc. Matt’s parent’s are coming into town next weekend and were going to Continue Reading …
