IMG_0720Happy Monday, my loves! And a very happy (but belated I know) October! Fall aka my favorite season is upon us and I’m balls deep in fall decor, pumpkin flavored everything, and flannels/tights. I know my posts have been sporadic, but I’ve been pretty busy adulting lately. It feels good to be productive, but let me be honest for a second: it doesn’t make for very good blogging material. Sleep to be lost, work emails to be sent (at ungodly hours of night), gallons of coffee to be chugged, loads of laundry to be folded, piles of summer clothes to be packed, tubs of fall clothes to be put away…you catch my drift. Between the fall cleaning and the marathon training, I’m practically a 32 26 year-old mother of three (cats). My bar hopping nights are taking a back seat to early bed times and even earlier alarm clocks. But I know in the end it’s gonna pay off and those post-marathon mimosas will taste even better :)

Wasn’t Expecting That

IMG_0672Pope-a-delphia is in full swing my friends! The streets are lined with Pope-a-Potties and the street closures have begun. As much as I would love to get up close and personal with Francis this weekend, I’ll be staying away from the havoc and spending quality time with my couch. And Netflix account. Maybe I’ll clean out my closet and get those fall clothes moved in. Oh happy days.

This week went by pretty fast, as I was still in New York on Monday and have been working from home since yesterday. Cooler temperatures are finally upon us and I’m loving being able to run after work without dying of heat stroke. It was almost like magic, as I sailed through a 14 mile run this morning. Here’s a quick recap of training this week:IMG_0646

  • Monday: Cross-training and upper body circuits
  • Tuesday: 4-mile run
  • Wednesday: 4-mile run
  • Thursday: Rest
  • Friday: 14-mile run
  • Saturday: Spin class
  • Sunday: 7-mile run

Cheers to the weekend loves!
