Pulled an old one off Cameron’s phone. My life: sweatpants, confused, on the floor with the dog, blogging.

Another gem from his phone. This is also pretty normal. *cough shelovesmemore cough*

And one more set of oldies- I found Le’s adoption photos from the website. Look at how small and scruffy she was! These were the photos that made us jump on getting the chance to see her! If you want to read about her adoption you can do it HERE.

Okay, back to more current pics: Rehoboth, DE – gotta document the abs when they decide to hang around.

And a few leftover from the wedding…

Cameron went to happy hour last night…and so did I. Got the Altra Torin 2.5 & Brooks Launch 3s. Went based soley on feel and not what I’m used to. I’m still gonna rotate my Saucony Kinvaras in the mix, but it should be interesting switching up brands. I’ll let you know how it goes!

And another BIG THANK YOU to all the friends and family who donated to the 50K ultra I did over the summer. I (we) got a very nice letter in the mail, so I thought i’d let you guys see that your donations help make a difference. Thank you all again! (you can read about the ultra here and here).

OH and it’s Friday people. Here’s a virtual cheers to beers as big as my head!!

What are your weekend plans, running and non-running!?

Phone Dump Friday! #9

Tuesday: 7.5m intervals 12 x 400s @6:07/pace, 25 min core

Wednesday: 7m easy 9:40/pace

Thursday: Rest

Quick check in! Saw the orthopedist yesterday and my knees look fantastic. No major issues. He thinks i may have either a small bone bruise on the lateral side, or a possible minor tear of the meniscus. He wasn’t worried about either because I wasn’t in pain and said I would have experienced a lot of swelling and pain if it tore (which i did not have any swelling.) He gave me the go ahead to marathon train and prescribed ice to the knee after running for the next several weeks as precaution. Yay to that!

And cheers to the weekend! I’m so excited to finally get back to a long run! Wish me luck and enjoy the picture dump below.

OH and thanks again for everyone who has donated to my fundraising page for the National MS Society–exceeded the goal of $500, so i’d like to hit a new goal of $1000! https://fundly.com/run-for-ms

Gotta appreciate the attempt to smile while carrying a heavy weight up and down hills… #IneedtodoanotherSpartan
