MY GOSH! It feels like it’s been FOREVER since I’ve gotten to chat with you guys!! Oh wait, that’s because it HAS been! I’m sorry! Graduate school has been one BUSY time, both at work and when I’m home. Luckily I have a bit of ‘down time’ now, which means that I get to catch you guys up on what you’ve missed!
Let’s start with the important one. THIS GIRL has a new boyfriend! :) (Feel free to scroll to the next point if you don’t want to hear this one.) Someone I’ve known for years, but just recently reconnected with. Best part? (Other than the fact that he’s uber handsome.) Two words. Gym Dates. How much better of a relationship can you be in than one where you can go to the gym together. Seriously. Awesome!
Alright. Moving on. I also ran my first ultra-marathon! SAAYYYY WHHAATTTT?? Yea, I’m sure you all forgot that I signed up for the Run! Woodstock 50K awhile back. So yea, that was on September 6th! It surprisingly went really well! I position my mom and boyfriend at an aid station that I would pass twice per loop (two loops for the 50k), which I think helped a lot. Means I was able to see two friendly faces at miles 4, 12, 20, and 28.
I was a bit sore/hurting after the ultra. That day. However, I woke up Sunday morning just a bit sore.. Where I probably could have ran a few miles.. DON’T WORRY. I didn’t. I rested! But I felt pretty good! I was even contemplating doing another 50k this weekend (ok, so I’m a bit insane..) BUT decided against it because I didn’t want to test my luck with being injured.
Another reason that I’m now happy that I didn’t decide to go the 50k this weekend is because I’m going to go to Nebraska on Thursday evening to see a friend who’s coming back from being deployed! I’m VERY excited because I haven’t seen him in what seems like forever. Not to mention that I thoroughly enjoy solo road trips!
What else have you missed? Well, that would probably be me falling in LOVE with crossfit. Yes. It’s official. I’m in love with crossfit. So much so that I’ve taken my boyfriend and my sister both through their first CF workouts! There is something about pushing myself EVERY SINGLE DAY though a workout that I love! It’s not like anything I’ve ever done before, and because of that I love it!
I promise that I’m back in business everyone! Remember that you can always keep up with me on Instagram too!!
