I was a bad blogger this weekend! I only updated once — but now I’m back and ready to return to regular updates. Apologies for my absence.
If you’re just dying to know what I was up to all weekend, sorry, you’ll have to wait. Check back tonight for an update with some big news.
I can tell you a few things that I did yesterday, though, because my day was all about spending quality time with blogger buddies.
Despite the fact that I was running on about four hours of sleep (and 4+ glasses of wine from the night before), I was up bright and early yesterday to cheer on the lady runners at the MORE/Fitness Half Marathon in Central Park.
I knew Jess was going to be spectating from the top of the infamous Cat Hill, so I made my way up there to cheer with her. The runners were working hard to get up the hill — which they had to conquer twice during the race — but everyone had an awesome attitude and most runners were smiling, which I love.
Eventually we made our way toward the finish line to try to catch some blogger friends as they wrapped up the race.
We managed to see Theodora twice, both at the top of Cat Hill and at mile 13. She looked so strong and I was proud I actually got a photo of her.
On my way home, I also spotted Gabriela and Caitlin! It was fun walking with them for a bit and chatting. It’s crazy that I hadn’t met Gabriela in person until yesterday. Meeting bloggers is always hilarious because you creepily know so much about the person’s life anyway and sometimes it’s weird to admit that. I love it.
Congratulations to all of the other fabulous runners and bloggers out on the course yesterday.
My weekend wrapped up with a lovely dinner at Theodora’s apartment. She invited Gabriela, Tina, Heather and I over for some wine, bread, cheese and pasta. All my favorite things in one room? Yes please.
I’m no food blogger, so my pictures of the meal are nothing spectacular, but I can assure you the food was great!
It was fun catching up with everyone, and you would think that since Tina, Gabriela and Theodora had all finished the half marathon that morning they’d be the stars of the show, right?
All of the attention was on this guy. Meet Bailey!
Theodora’s dog is so dang cute. I wanted to stay and pet him all night.
All in all it was a great night and a productive weekend (yeah, yeah, I’ll tell you about the rest later).
This morning I was back into my regular routine. I ran four miles along the river and felt a bit sluggish. I think a running rest day is in my very near future!
As for an outfit? I haven’t decided yet if I like today’s getup or not…
Eventually I plan on cleaning out my closet so I can get rid of some stuff — clutter makes me anxious. I think this top might go into the discard pile. We’ll see.
Time to kick this day into gear. Have a great Monday, everyone!
NOW LET’S TALK: Have you met any blogger friends in person? Were they different from what you had expected? I always love meeting bloggers because you get to hear their voices!
