HAPPY MARATHON MONDAY!! I’m watching Boston this morning while sending happy vibes to Heather, Lauren, Kristina, Nicole, and everyone else running Boston today (and Shalane and Desi!!). This was one of the busiest weekends I’ve had in a while with my dad’s birthday, Easter with both families, running, and a blogger date all happening.
Friday I met up with Cori for a blogger date that we’ve been talking about for ages. We had beer and yummy food and chatted seriously forever. We could probably pass tests on each other now. Super much fun and she’s seriously my new best friend (whether she likes it or not haha). And really cool and pretty in person 🙂 We are terrible bloggers because we completely forgot to take a single picture until we had already finished eating and drinking and saved them for midnight in an empty mall after a decent amount of beer, which results in pictures like this:
But we did try to get one or two decent ones!
Saturday morning my run was less than thrilling (maybe garlic fries and beer aren’t the best pre-run food? I refuse to believe that) but I cranked out a tempo 6 and did some very exciting schoolwork until dinner. Joe and I are lucky because our parents only live 5 minutes from each other so for Thanksgiving, Easter, etc we usually do dinner with both families in the same day so we don’t miss out on celebrating with anyone. This year, my parents wanted to do Easter dinner Saturday night instead because they had to pick up our traditional Easter seafood Saturday afternoon and it would be better fresh. It was super delicious.
And we had peanut butter cake for my dad’s birthday. Joe and my mom made it while I was out with Cori on Friday.
Seafood must be way better as running fuel because my 12 mile run Sunday went swimmingly 🙂 I’ve been seriously slacking on upper body the last 2 weeks though so even though today is my rest day, I’ll be doing an hour long upper back and arms workout. I’d love to have some guns to show off in my tank tops this summer haha.
For those that celebrate, what do you usually have to eat for Easter?
Ever met anyone you met from blogging?
