Weekend Wrap-Up!

How is it already Monday again!? These weekends are going by far too quickly for my liking. 

The weekend started out with an evening with just me and E while Kyle attended a promotion reception for a fellow classmate. We knew that we wouldn't stay long if we all went and I wanted Kyle to stay and enjoy some down time. 

While he was gone, E and I headed off to the city to pick up race packets for a half I was doing on Saturday with a friend. It turned into a dinner out which was so fun! Where did our baby go?! She was such a big girl coloring all by herself.
I got E down for bed after we got home and then I followed pretty quickly.

I was up at 5:30 to get ready for the Chocolate Rush half marathon. A sweet friend from SLAM was running and I wanted to do it with her as support. She had a goal in mind so we ran together and I knew as I kept looking at my watch that she was going to crush it. I was so proud of her, it was an awesome moment.
The rest of the day was spent running errands and relaxing because we had another race in the morning haha.

We were able to sleep in a bit longer yesterday but we were up at 6:30am for the Kickoff 5k. We knew it was going to be cold but thankfully E has this amazing Bundleme and this weather shield to keep her warm. When the race started at 9am it was 20 degrees but felt like 12, oh and it started snowing haha! 

It was a great race though! I ran the first mile with my friend Lauren and finished out the rest solo. We had a blast!
As we were leaving the snow really started to fall and we ended up with over an inch and gosh it was cold. 

This was my view as I left the commissary
It calmed down later in the afternoon and it was pretty to look at.
We ended the night face timing with family and watching the Super Bowl. We didn't go to any parties or have any traditional super bowl snacks, it was actually really nice.

E was enamored by it all! She stood there watching for about 20 minutes. 
It was a really fun weekend but it's onto a new week!

Hope you all had a great one.


  1. You are pounding out the races! Did you guys get chocolate in the Chocolate Rush Half?

  2. Wow - two races in one weekend?! You are absolutely killing it, and what a supportive friend. And seriously, E is getting so big - I love that she loved the Super Bowl :)

    Meg, Borrowed Heaven

  3. I swear you’re super woman with the amount of races that you run! I can’t even imagine how cold you must have been at the race on Sunday, but all of that snow is so pretty! We did the same thing for super bowl and it was awesome!

  4. Congrats on your half! I can't imagine running in that weather!

  5. I'm glad I wasn't in Philly, it's a shame Eagles fan want to trash their own city

  6. Wow two races? And in that weather, you are my hero, lol!

  7. You run so, so much! Truly in awe of you, girl!! And you're so sweet for running with your friend for support!! I should get you here to run with me!! ;)

  8. You always make me wish I enjoyed running more :)

  9. Fun weekend with runs and friends too. We were gone most of Sunday. Dinner out of town after church then Costco for gas for my Ford and shopped inside. Weary. Teaching 6 4&5th grade boys wears me out. Enjoy your snow ⛄❄

  10. Such a fun weekend, except for the snow, it looks crazy!

  11. Another fun, busy weekend!! :) E looks like such a big girl sitting at the table!!

  12. Snow is pretty, if you're looking at it through a window, hahaha. I never miss cold weather. :)
    Glad you're getting so much racing in. And yep, your little one is looking like a big girl now. I know I say it every time, but she's so, so cute.

  13. The snow is so pretty but I can understand not wanting to run in it. Glad you all had a relaxing and enjoyable superbowl!


Love hearing from you!! :)
