Running, Eating, and Getting Older

With the marathon 32 days away (but seriously, who is counting anyways) and event season now in full swing, this is going to be my motto for the next couple of months.

I’ve pretty much given up trying to remember everything I’ve done for these posts (you’re welcome) so here are a few high (and low) lights.

My brother and sister got older so we celebrated. Well, they celebrated and I chaperoned and napped per usual.

Birthdays

I snuggled up with this guy.

Who also happens to be my date to my sisters wedding. Clearly I’ll have the most handsome date.

Meghan and I ran a lot.

And ate, duh.

Our events team met in Bethesda and came up with some pretty great ideas and welcomed Tom to the group (naturally over cupcakes).

We went to my sister’s shower in Breese, IL. Yep, that’s a real place (Google it) and they have cows.

Oh and there are people there too like these goons.

And the 3 of us matched without planning it.

I ran 13 miles (this view never gets old).

Then Deanne and I sweat our way through our first (amazing and successful) event of the season.

Sometimes adulting sucks so we color.

Or go to the batting cages.

But most of the time it’s awesome and you layout with this view (and pretty good company).

Last Monday we went to sunrise yoga and the instructor didn’t know right from left which messed with my chi a little. But check out this view. . . it makes it all okay.

Saturday was a whirlwind. I ran 20 miles and ended up with some pretty awesome chafing which is totally not cute.

But then we ate this and all of the problems were solved.

And then we went out for my sister’s bachelorette party.

And I got a tattoo.

Kidding. But we had a great time.

This is what you look like after you run 20 miles, drink and dance all night and then do hot yoga sculpt. So much pain. . .

For some reason this is a real sign at Mariano’s (so you know someone had to have done it before).

I turn 28 in a couple of weeks and while I joke a lot about getting old I’m really not that freaked out about it. I have a pretty awesome life so far. My family is amazing and supportive and only annoy me like 16% of the time, my friends are pretty cool and still put up with me, and I have the best job, co-workers and volunteers a girl could ask for. So if this is what 28 is going to be like, then I think I’m going to be okay. Not to mention Fall is just around the corner which means my favorite. . .

And BIG thank you to all of my friends, family and co-workers who have donated to my fundraising page!
