Friday: Ari's third birthday!!! Took him to the park to celebrate in the perfect weather!


sweet boy is so happy on his b-day

birthday wouldn't be complete without some water
Saturday: 15 miles!!! Ran 15 miles in Maryville on the greenway. Felt really good most of the way. Averaged 10.05 per mile (this includes a walking break to slam a Gu and refilling my waterbottle at a fountain)! Happy with this! I also tried something new on this long run - listening to an audiobook. It was amazing!! I highly recommend it!

post-run: trying to capture the mist in my hair
ran last 6 miles in the rain

made it 15 miles alive

Sunday: Does studying for the GRE count as cross-training? Oh yeah, did I mention I'm attempting to go back to school??
