Marathon Relay

Tomorrow I’m running the Baltimore Running Festival Marathon as part of a relay team. Relay teams are 4 members, each covering either 7 miles or 6.1 miles. My teammates are novice runners who have been training for weeks for their distance. I’m excited for them to participate in such a big race. 

I’m runner #2 tomorrow, covering 7 miles. With all of the excitement of the marathon it may be hard to get me off the course after my 7 miles!

Mental Health Morning

I could. not. even. handle the idea of going to work this morning. 

I was at work late last night dealing with a staff disciplinary situation and was just in a sour mood when I got home after an annoying and stressful day. So I emailed that I was taking the morning because of a migraine (not completely true, but my head was spinning/pounding). 

So this morning I got to sleep in, run 3 miles with Freddie, do a body pump workout, and make lunch. 

I’d much prefer a 12:30-5:30 schedule everyday. I wonder if I could swing it!

Weekend Recap
Friday
Pre-work 5K run with Freddie
Short, but productive day at work
Got my hair did
Chilled out and caught up on some DVR (A to Z is sooo cute)
Saturday
Got up early to take T paintballing as part of his birthday present (his birthday was Wednesday and everything was an absolute success)
T was on my team and he was really good at it, which wasn’t a surprise since he played growing up and was a Marine. Meanwhile I got shot 6-7 times and have the welts to prove it
Went up to Baltimore Saturday night for my friend Sara’s birthday dinner (where this super cute pic of T and I was taken) 
Sunday
Morning snuggles
Church and errands
Ran an awesome self imposed 10K from Gravelly Point Park along the Potomac over the bridge into DC, past the Lincoln Memorial, around the reflecting pool and back. It was perfection
Body Pump ab work out
Had my friend Michelle over for dinner
Did my nails and caught up some more on DVR
Sadly today I have to work, but it is pretty quiet and I am getting things done so that’s….something.

Fall Travels

In 2 weeks I’m headed up to Vermont with T for my friend Sarah’s wedding with a stop each way in Connecticut to visit my alma mater and see some other friends. (DRIVING)

Then 2 weeks after that I will be in Alabama to visit all my Auburn friends and go to the game again Texas A&M. (FLYING)

And then 2 weeks after that I will be in New York for Thanksgiving. (DRIVING)

I’m excited and exhausted just thinking about it.
