OK, Its Been Awhile

Since I last wrote and shared with you my mom’s Peach Pie Recipe I have been busy. And Mostly busy running but not cooking :(

My brother got married last weekend…. Such a fun wedding.

After that we drove down to San Antonio Texas where we relaxed with my family, enjoyed shopping and eating mexican food. I think I ate enough tomotillo sauce to not crave mexican food for at least a month!

Even though I’ve been traveling I made all of my scheduled runs! ALL of them. I can’t believe :)

Running sprints in hot and humid Texas as not easy. This summer weather is killer, I usually don’t hate the heat but the humidity has been awful. I got back into the city late Wednesday night and it’s not that much better here. I have had to really slow down my pace so that I don’t over-do it. This weekends log run ended up only being 8.5 miles instead of the 10 I wanted to finish, but I just was not feeling great so I am happy that I got as many miles in as I did.

Today I ran a 45 minute tempo run at the early hour of 5:45 AM and then worked a volunteer shift for the NYC Triathlon which my boyfriend was running. I love volunteering for the race because it’s really inspiring and I get guaranteed entry into next years event :)

Here is the first place male winner coming by me at mile 1.5.

Congrats to everyone who finished! It was such a hot day I’m not sure how they did it.

Ok so that’s what I’ve been up to lately. I promise to be better at posting.

How is your summer going? Any vacations?

  1. Running in the heat is always really hard. The humidity in VA this time of year makes it almost impossible to run outside. Props to you for getting all your runs in!

    Great picture, congratulations to the beautiful and happy couple :) That’s fantastic that you were still able to get your runs in despite the heat, that takes true dedication :)

  3. What a pretty wedding photo! Glad you had fun with your family and lots of delicious Mexican food! Ohhh the humidity has been so out of control. Thank goodness it took a break on Saturday, but it’s back to hot and sticky today. Even at 5:30am in the morning it’s crazy… I’ve just been trying to drink lots of water and nuun. Great job getting in all your runs – woo hoo! Let’s hope for less humidity…
