What a most fantabulous weekend! My Friday started off on a great note with an early morning cycle class. After work, I immediately met up with Bek and Ash and headed up to meet Mollie for a wine and painting class!
**Note – when you’re taking these classes, it is apparently incredibly important to paint your TOPS AND SIDES. And the bottoms.
All the best friends!
The night was so much fun!! It’s BYOB and that we did! Naturally, that’s how you power through a race, right?
Our finished products! Super cool how none of them look the same yet we were all taking the same class. Loved the creativity from everyone!
The next morning I was up bright and EARLY with Ash for a half marathon!
It was an unofficial half marathon course preview of our half in two weeks. Our goal is sub 2:05 for the half in two weeks but we achieved it this weekend! Guess we’ll have another goal for the actual race – sub 2:04!
I must say, though, that the first half of this race was TOUGH. We were not feeling the best after Friday night’s shenanigans but we powered through it – which was more of a mental thing than a physical thing. In any case, it was such a great feeling to have finished with that time. I seriously can’t believe how much better I’ve gotten at running over the past year.
After the race, I was on a serious runner’s high and convinced my boyfriend to go out walking along a local trail. The weather was too good to be true so naturally it was the best day ever!
The Senator was thrilled with the excursion!!
Look at how gorgeous that water is! Geez.
I can’t decide if he looks demonic or super happy. Votes?
And later that night, we went out on a super fun date and picked up Ash for the night too! We had a fancy dinner and then went to the fabulous Fox theater to see Once. After seeing it in NYC a few weeks ago, I was dying to see it again. Loved it.
We were all gussied up for the evening and were such fancy pants – drinking wine and martinis.
And yesterday, the girls and I went on another little hike on a super awesome local trail. It was another glorious day, so that’s what’s supposed to happen, right?
The crew + The Senator’s butt because he’s too good for the camera.
The waterfalls + my beautiful bestie.
Hardcore hiking! There were some steep inclines and some tricky areas of terrain but it was a glorious day time adventure. Seriously, this was a perfect weekend filled with so much good stuff. <3
How was your weekend?
Is the weather improving where you are?
Are you an artist? I am not.
