Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had an awesome weekend. Good luck to all of you teachers who are going back to school today! In case you missed it, here were my posts from the weekend:
- Fitness Friday + Wrap-Up of Week 4 of BBB
- Weekly Top 10 featuring my favorite bloggers from last week
Yesterday was just one of those days that was awesome. I had planned on doing 7-miles with two of my girlfriends but alas both of them weren’t feeling well. SO I headed out for a solo run. I got out just as the sun was coming up.
I kept this run in and around my neighborhood. I took a trail to the neighborhood next to us and ran out further until I hit the water. It kind of amazes me that I get to run in such a gorgeous setting all the time.
I love running with my friends but there is something about the silence and solitude of a solo run. I tend to have some random thoughts throughout it. I also got to enjoy nature …
- 1 million + Fiddlers crabs
- 8 squirrels
- 1 snake (dead)
- 1 worm
- 5 off-leash dogs
I got back to the house just as Emmalyne was going down for a nap. I was a hot, sweaty, happy mess. My goal pace for the Savannah Rock-N-Roll Half Marathon is 10 minutes/mile and I kept mine at 9:44/mile yesterday. Maybe I got this this year??
When I got home I spent some time doing foam rolling it out while wearing my Zensah compression sleeves and sipping some Nuun. I got some questions about my foam roller on Instagram. We got ours from Walmart for under $15! LOVE it.
The rest of the day I did a little bit of this …
And went to the movies with Chris, Heather, and D. We went and saw “The Campaign” while a babysitter watched Emmalyne and Grace. It was seriously funny if you like Will Ferrell movies and Zach Galifianakis. Then Chris and I came home and grilled in a torrential downpour. It was ok though, it was worth it
We capped off our day with our fantasy football live draft with our friends throughout the country. I had the #1 draft pick this year and got … Aaron Rodgers. I am a HUGE Packers fan but on top of that he’s the best quarterback in the league and likely to win me some FF games
Emmalyne and I leave for Phoenix tomorrow so we got to get busy getting our booties in gear today. Have a happy Monday! Don’t forget to #BeKind
