Working for the Weekend

Y'all this upcoming weekend is going to be one for the books. I cannot even explain how excited/nervous I am for this weekend. Not only is it the first time that I am running a half marathon, but it's also my roommates 21st birthday.

I'm not really sure what we're doing, but I know it's going to be a lot of fun. The group of girls that we have going to celebrate with her is a really great group, and we always have the most fun together when we go out. So Friday we'll be going out and celebrating with her, and maybe even Thursday night at midnight too (since it will be her birthday and all).

Saturday, however, I have to prepare myself for the half marathon on Sunday. I'll be going with my running buddies to the expo to pick up our packets and walk around for a little bit to see what all this pre-race nonsense is about. Then we'll be heading to a pasta dinner that night to carb load for the race on Sunday.

Sunday is race day. I'm not sure when I'll be back to tell about it, or how long it'll take me to get back to running/having a normal life. I'm so excited to be running a half marathon, and so glad that I've got two really great girls running it with me. It's so much easier to run when I know that there's someone who will be running by my side.

What are your plans for this weekend? Have you ever ran 13.1 miles or further? 


  1. Congrats in advance! I ran my second 1/2 last March and a great playlist got me through :)

  2. So exciting (on both accounts!) Enjoy :)

    1. Thank you. It was an amazing weekend, definitely jam packed full of things to do though!

  3. I don't understand how all you runner ladies do it. My body physically cannot run. As in my ankles actually give out when I try...

  4. A lot of fun!! I'm not that good running but I love tennis so, sports are great!!


    1. I've always wanted to learn how to play tennis. It seems insanely difficult though if you don't have too much hand eye coordination.

  5. My plans for the weekend - take my dog to the vet, go to the grocery store and RELAX, and I couldn't be more excited! Me and my couch are in for some much needed time together :)
    Now your weekend sounds amazing! 21st birthdays are always a blast and a half marathon?! That's awesome! Good luck!

  6. Ooh a half-marathon!? You go girl!! I love running, but have yet to do a half.
    What a fabulous weekend ahead:) Wishing you the best!


Thanks for saying hello! I love hearing from all of you & reply back to everyone as quickly as I can! xoxo
