Jake had an event with MORC last night - if you're into cycling, check them out! At the end of the meeting, there was a little bit of tricycle racing. I'm proud to say, my man did pretty dang well! Nothin' like seeing grown men race on tricycles! I totally requested he wear his lime green Julbo sunnies - I think they helped! He was so fast I couldn't get a good picture. Proud girlfriend moment. ; )
Someone posted this old picture of Jake awhile ago and I've been saving it for the right moment. Today feels right! Holy muscle flex! Can't wait for a weekend getaway with this guy!
Today is the BEST day!!! There is a blog that I read religiously; I look forward to reading it every single day. It's called Hungry Runner Girl - you can find it HERE. She is so inspiring. She does something each week where she shares running accomplishments, so I sent her mine about the 15k I did a few weeks ago. I was featured today!! It definitely made my day!
I am feeling MUCH better today, almost back to normal - thank goodness!!! But I ran out of the house this morning and totally forgot my lunch. Palm to face. BUT, that gives me an excuse to have Panera delivered to school! I haven't used their delivery service yet, so I'm excited. I'm getting this deliciousness delivered! I haven't had this salad yet, either - it's a day of firsts!!
REALLLLLY excited to say "Peace out, Springfield!" for a couple of days! SEVEN hours until we leave...not that anyone is counting down or anything...
I am also feeling SO much relief since I'm finished with comps. I still have to defend my papers in a few weeks, but it's such a nice feeling to be finished with all of that research and writing, and to have my weekends back! I had been working on them since December, so I think I'm still in shock that it's finally over. So. Happy.
I'm already sad about leaving our girls behind, but I know they'll have a blast with their grandparents. They get pretty spoiled when they have these weekend sleepovers, so I think sometimes they wish we were gone more often.
This is one of my favorite snacks. They are super gooey, which is not at all what I was expecting the first time I had them. Now I'm obsessed!
Happy, happy Friday, friends!!
I write about whatever is going on each day. I want to use this space as a place to document my dissertation and training journeys.
