Monday's Musings

Well first things first, and if you haven't heard of or entered my Fitbit Giveaway yet, then you need to get your butt over there and do so right this second!  Contest ends on 2/3!

Today was your typical Monday morning with that good ol' alarm going off at 5:20.  A funny thing though, I have been so excited about this giveaway that I woke right up and started checking to see who had left comments in the wee hours of the morning.  I was psyched to see 14 of you participate already, given that its my very first giveaway!

Anyway, at school today I was excited to receive my Christmas present from a coworker.  Why yes, it is a month after Christmas but she scrapped the present she originally got me. I was showing her some necklaces I wanted at Baublebar, and then my very good friend went right back to her office to order me the necklace I liked the most! She's the best (and yes, I'm talking about you, Anh!).

I was also able to sign up for a race that I didn't think I was originally going to be able to participate in! I typically go home during the first weekend of March to celebrate my sister's birthday, but she will be in France instead, with her vocal group from college. Yes, I am jealous, but... I'm excited to be able to participate in this year's Salem Black Cat 10-miler.

It actually works out really well, because its the same day that I had a 10-miler scheduled in my training plan.  The Black Cat race was created as a training run for all of those New Englander's running that year's Boston Marathon. Its a fun and motivating way in order to get in your 20 mile training run.  I will be participating in the 10 miler, created as a way to get the rest of us motivated through our training plans for the beginning of race season out here on the Northern side of the East Coast (typically races pick up in April and the majority go until the end of October/beginning of November). 

The first 1000 registrants get a long-sleeve tech T, and all finishers receive a race medal (and you all know, that's the reason I run).  Why don't you come join me and register today!!

Lastly, friends, I'm seriously aiming for 30 miles this week. This is how I will do it:
Monday- 7
Tuesday- 5/weights
Wednesday- 7
Friday- off (all day conference)
Saturday- off (all day conference)
Sunday- .... long run day... the one that gets me every week.... all I need to do is 6 dang miles to hit 30. I CAN DO THIS!!!!

Let's chat:
1. What did you have for lunch today OR
2. What was on your agenda for this afternoon?

I was/am/currently....walking out of the building at 3:00. THAT NEVER HAPPENS!


  1. That's a beautiful necklace on a beautiful girl :) I'm going to tell you my whole day's meals...For Breakfast I had a half cup of cooked oatmeal with Flax seeds, a half of a banana, and a half cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I didn't have time to make a good lunch because I stayed up til midnight watching the Grammies and didn't want to get out of bed, so I grabbed a can of lite Progresso Soup and a pear, which was actually quite good because I was FREEZING. And for dinner I am having Tilapia crusted with almonds and roasted Brussels sprouts with parmesan cheese. And I promise I won't write on your blog every day.

  2. And I haven't exercised and reading this I feel guilty so maybe I'll do some weight training and dance tonight.

  3. The whole point of blogs is to guilt you into exercising. It's the reason I started writing again.

  4. That looks stunning on you, good choice.

    Now get training for that 10 miler!
