I’ve been trying to post more than once a week, but time is flying! I got back late last night from wonderful weekend in New Hampshire. The husband and I drove up Friday night, arrived around midnight, in bed by 1 and up 7 hours later. I kind of refuse to have my hair cut in New York, it’ s so dang expensive! And because of this, I haven’t had my hair cut since before the wedding. I went to my usual salon and had my good friend Christina cut it for me. We gossiped for a good hour before heading out to my sister in law’s graduation, which was about an hour away.
It was a beautiful day, which made all of the driving a bit easier. After the graduation, we re-grouped back at my sister’s place before heading over to the graduation party! I drank some beer and ate some good food. This also ended up being a late night, but I managed a solid 8 hours of sleep before heading off on a run with my sister.
Running in NH (or anywhere in New England) is such a nice relief from NYC. My sister has been doing a ton of Crossfit, and is in amazing shape! She’s lost over 50 pounds and she looked like a new woman when I saw her this past weekend. I am so proud of her and I can tell she is so happy! These 5 miles were the highlight of my weekend. We ran on a paved trail through the woods in Hollis, NH and it was beautiful! This was the first time my sister and I actually ran WITH EACH OTHER and it was great! We’ve gone on runs together before, but since Kerri is now a rockstar, she has no problem running fast! I ended the run literally wanting to scream “I love running!”
Also, I find this soda machine hilarious! So random in the middle of the trail…
Derek and I celebrated a late mother’s day with our moms on Sunday and brought them out to lunch at the Purple Finch and it was delicious! Thought I had a picture, but apparently I was too hungry to even think about it. I got a portabella and cheese sub with onions and peppers and sweet potato dots, basically a cheesesteak minus the steak. The sweet potato dots came with maple syrup and they were sooooo good! Yum, I wish I had more right now.
After showing off our wedding pictures to both of our families and making and making a pit stop at Target, we were on the road back to NYC around 8:30 last night. 3 trips to unload my car and a beer or 2 later, I was in bed by 1:30 and easily slept until 8 this morning.
It was surely a productive, short, busy, intense weekend, but it was great! I am definitely looking forward to spending my upcoming 3 day weekend relaxing (and running).
I signed up for this a couple weeks ago and the first one is this Wednesday. I’m excited to have a reason to not only run in Prospect Park more often, but also to bust out some speedwork on a more regular basis.
I was able to score some pretty awesome/cheap running clothes from Target yesterday! I hit up the clearance rack and there were so many good options. I bought all 3 of these for less than $30.
The brighter and more obnoxious, the better.
I’ve also been looking for a good gym bag and I found this at Target as well.
Before this gets any longer, let me mention that I have some awesome giveaways coming up soon. There will be 2 this week, so keep your eyes peeled!
