Blogger Date!


I had an amazing last few days. Sometimes if i’m not blogging it’s cause i’m “living” which then makes for a few good blogs. I’m not organized enough yet to blog on the daily, but I have been trying to update my Instagram more often, baby steps people. Also, I have to say i’m glad you guys liked my Runner Overload picture, but I’m warning may have fueled a fire and i might do sketches to get my point across more often.

Now that’s all said, a very cool thing happened Friday. I got to hang out with Run for The Pizza! Emmeline and I basically talked for 5 or so hours straight (not exaggerating) and forgot to take pictures until after our dinner and drinks. Some bloggers we are right? But I promise the ahi tuna, hummus, french fries & beer would have been a great picture. Just pretend (or i’ll have to draw you up something hehe)

She’s super cool and it turns out we had a lot more in common than just running. 🙂


This happened too. Not sure how, but i’m happy this blogger love moment was caught for all of you to see. Also I’m pretty sure this means we’re best friends.

Onto the running side of my life. I had a reassuring long run this week–a 14 miler and last long run before the marathon in 14 days. It went soooo well. I fueled right, my pace started conservative  8:20s and I picked up throughout the run ending with a few in the 7:40s and a whole lot of energy. I’m still going back and forth about how this marathon will go, but for now I will eat up a big bowl of inspiration while watching the Boston Marathon! One last Good Luck shout out to my running coach Lauren & everyone else running Boston this morning!

  1. You guys are so cute! What a fun meet up. 🙂 (I love Emmaline’s bag!)
    You had an awesome week last week!

  2. Woo! We really did fail at being good bloggers though haha. I can take boring pictures of my running shoes and pizza but actually go out with another runner friend and forget to document anything.

  3. That is funny – we all seem to have our phones all the time and then think ‘how did I forget to take a picture?!?’ We were at the jeweler because Lisa’s ring set needs repair, and thinking that we might need to replace in a few years … found a beautiful set and – totally forgot to take a single picture!

    You guys look like you had a blast! Yay!

  4. I love seeing the hangout on both of your blogs! So fun.

  5. It sounds like your training for the marathon is going great! I can’t wait for you to rock it in 2 weeks!!

  6. Can’t wait to hear how your coach did! I am feeling good about your marathon … I know I’ll be cheering loudly from down in the Big D 🙂

    • you’re the sweetest! 🙂 She did great 3:15 i believe, didn’t hit her goal but now she has Chicago! Lauren and i are both doing Chicago this year, so i’m excited to meet her in person and hopefully do a shakeout run.

  7. So fun you guys got to meet! I just had my first real-life blogger meet up this morning in my race corral and am having breakfast with another tomorrow! So exciting!
