Hopefully by the time you are reading this, I am working from home due a snow storm! I've gone in during all the other snowy days and since it's supposed to keep going all day/night, I didn't want to try and drive in it.
My weekend was relatively low-key but had some pretty great moments…
-Friday, I stopped by Target to pick up some long run necessities including whole wheat pasta, bread, chocolate milk, shot blocks, bananas, gatorade and socks. All Champion gear was on sale so I got a pair of purple running tights for $8 and a lightweight pullover for $20!
-Saturday morning, I was up early to eat and digest my breakfast before my 15 mile long run. I met Debbie and her running group at 7:30am. When I pulled into the parking lot, I saw Julie's mom's car only to see Julie get out of it!!! She came back home from school for the long weekend/her birthday! It was cold, snowy and icy but it was a great run. We did 7 miles together and it went by quickly but that's what happens when you run with your best friend :) We were just missing our other boomie Kelly!
-I drove back home and did 8 more miles solo. It was tough, even colder and windier but I did it! 15 miles is the longest run I've ever done and it's crazy to think that in 2 months, that number will be 26.2! My knees and calves were a little sore afterwards but I foam rolled like it was going out of style.
-Saturday night I met up with my mom, step-dad, twin and his girlfriend for dinner. A free dinner at Olive Garden with my family was enough motivation to get me off the couch. I had too many breadsticks, good wine, a delicious flatbread and shared lots of laughs with my family!

I hope you all had a great weekend!
