Happy Monday!

Happy Monday folks.

I hope everyone had an amazing weekend. Mine was very relaxing. We went to an event at the Rockville Town Center in Maryland for an open house by MK Catering and a few other vendors. Stay tuned for more about that later this week.

On a different note, I was pretty bad on my diet this weekend (ate everything from strawberry banana pancakes to McDonalds, and I never eat either). I'm back on track today, but the rainy weather has me completely unmotivtated to hit the gym (my usual lunch routine) and run. 

I'm thinking about joining a running meetup though! I've been copied on all of their events for more than 6 months now and I think it's about time I go and see what it's all about. They run pretty much every evening, which would be great for me since I haven't been motivated to go at lunch lately.

To get me motivated, I thought I'd share some pictures from the 10 mile race I ran earlier this month. I was so happy that day. It was awesome.

Love my city...


Look at all the people!

That's me in the pink stripes...

Waving through the big crowd...

My dad surprised me at the finish!

Love you, dad!

Sorry we couldn't get a better picture of you!

It's finally hitting me... I'm tired!

Ahh. So excited here. I did it! I did it!

I just started running about 2 years ago and never thought I would actually run in races! Let alone a 10 miler! I'm really proud of myself for doing this, but I want to do more! My next goal is to run a half marathon and then a full marathon! It would be a dream to run in the Suntrust National Marathon in DC next March (right in time for my wedding too)!

One last note... I'm totally inspired by other runners. Many of which have blogs, just like me! Check out Running with Blue Sponge and Running to the Wedding for other running bloggers!

Don't be so hard on yourself, i'm sure you'll get back to the gym soon enough. Thanks for following my blog and i'm now your newest follower.

Wow, congrats! I like to pretend I'm a runner and then I keel over after 1 mile.

Runners are so inspirational! You're adorable, I was in DC for the cherry blossom festival - I wonder if you ran by! :)

Congrats! That's awesome! And don't worry about the gym right now. Some days are harder than others. You can slack off a bit as long and you eventually get back on. I'm in the same stage as you except it's taking me a little longer to get back in gear :)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I look forward to following yours.

Happy Wednesday!

Why do they make things like that taste so good?!? Ever since I left my gym I have been bad about getting exercise. If Bostons weather would be better (and not 46 like today) I'm sure I would go out more. . at least thats what I keep saying.
