Weekend Recap- Long Runs and a Party

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that the weather here in New York was amazing over the weekend.

I mean really, look at that sky- I had to take a picture while on the road because it just didn’t look real.


Not only was the sky beautiful, the air is getting crisper which I think has helped me to keep a rather quick pace when running requiring very little effort.

My long run of 13 miles was amazing. So amazing that I woke up yesterday feeling like running again. I totaled slightly over 20 miles for the weekend.

As long as I am still happy running at my leisure, I don’t think I am all that concerned about the loss of race interest at the moment. As I always say, things will just work out the way they are supposed to.

Sometimes it is A-OK to stop planning, stop thinking and just go with the flow.

Exciting find: I have been watching this cute Lulu Lemon Skirt for a while and it finally went on sale:

It is not only super cute, it is super comfortable for running. It is similar to the other skirt I have from Lulu in that it has the bike shorts built-in, stays in place, doesn’t ride up or slide down and has the pockets in all the right places.


I tried my best to get you some photos of how the skirt looks on…not only am I the worst at remembering to take pictures but I am terrible at taking them of myself…


…That would be me yesterday at a very special birthday party for my favorite little girl.

My best friend Lisa’s daughter turned one last week and her first birthday bash was yesterday.

Lisa makes THE BEST parties…because she knows that a great party is defined by great food (well, at least in my opinion).

Who doesn’t look forward to a loaded smorgasbord that involves everything you can imagine including sushi, shrimp cocktail and grilled vegetables?

And she custom designs the best candy tables….any wonder why she is my best friend?

She lucked out on the weather too.


And here we are at Monday. I have a crazy busy week ahead of me and need to get myself moving early today.

I know you are wondering if I squeezed in time for some onion rings this weekend…


Of course I did. Don’t be silly. They made their appearance in the form of strings atop my favorite salad.

I always make time for the important things in my life.

Have a great Monday!



How was your weekend?

Do you run in skirts, shorts, or pants?

Best thing you ate all weekend? I think I have to go with the birthday cake at the party- chocolate fudge filling and whipped buttercream frosting…divine.

    Would Lisa like to throw my next birthday party? I think she could do the same thing she did for her one year old for me and I’d be set. Such a fantastic looking party!!!! 🙂 Sushi is always a win! You look great in the Lulu skirt, btw!
