Letting Loose

3 day weekend FTW! (which I didn't know about until Thurday night, which makes it even more special).

And thus far it has been quite the fun little weekend!

Friday night had a fun time catching up with a friend I hadn't seen in a while at one of my favorite places right around the corner from me: Zack's. It is a really cute little place just a few blocks from me and has been a stand by for casual dates/meet ups.

Saturday let myself sleep in (9am rebel here) and then it was off for a quick few miles.

My new Mizuno Wave Creation's (13's again not upgrading until the next round) FINALLY arrived at Fleet Feet so it felt good to have a fresh pair and logging some miles on them before the marathon. I am in love with this shoe. But man they get pricey and I go through them so quick even though I only use them for longish runs (usually over an hour). I have several other sneaks I use depending on workout type.

We are going to own 26.2 like a boss.

Easy peasy.
Then I had something that changed my life. And no, this is not dramatic.

Breakfast of champions. And yes laziness is putting the pb straight on the banana. The banana was delicious but the real star is below...

This is a gift from the God's. Mind blown. Amazing.
I have seen this around and do not know why I didn't buy it earlier. Oh wait, I do know. I have NO control with nut butters and this sounded too good to be true. And the verdict is it is amazeballs. I am drooling thinking about it.

It was then off for another Zog's football game! I am so happy that I joined up with this team. First they are awesome and second it's a lot of fun! Still not 100% sure what I am doing other than running around a lot; but I am good at running around so hey it's something!

Gorgeous day and beautiful new turf field. So fancy.
After our game, we headed out to the bar - mind you it was noon - and it was all down hill from that point on.

The next (few) hours were spent playing flip cup, beer pong and cornhole - and having a dance party.

Note to self: a banana is not going to be the best food choice to drink on. Eat more next time.

I also love that Zogs makes me feel like I am in college once again. Helping adults make bad decisions!

It was a lot of fun to go out and be social, the team is a lot of fun and it's all about balance right? I have been so strict with myself during this training cycle but at this point I still have a few runs but I'm just ready for the marathon and they are all run easy.

Now I am going to spend a lot of time resting and relaxing.

Or going out to watch football...I mean it is a 3 day weekend after all!

Happy long those that have it!


  1. ahhh jealous you guys have a long weekend down there!
    Have a GREAT and relaxing time. I'm watching football all day today!

    1. It's pretty much 50/50 if you have off. I just assumed we didn't with pro bowl and super bowl coming up (I work for the NFL :) so it was a happy surprise!
      A day full of football is a perfect day to me! I can't believe the season is almost over.

  2. OMG that coconut and peanut butter spread is AMAZING. I had to not buy it again because it disappeared so quickly. Have you had Justin's Vanilla Almond Nut Butter? It's FANTASTIC.

    And yes, it's all about balance :) Glad you're having fun! You deserve it after all the hard work you've put in.

    1. Buying nut butter is a serious challenge to my will power. I am attempting to incorporate some daily that way I don't miss it so much that I eat a ton.

      And thanks for the heads up on the Justin's. I am officially on the prowl for it :)
