I’m one week away from running a marathon. Yikes. Never thought
this would actually be happening. But I can tell you I’m really
enjoying tapering. I started with a romantic valentines dinner with
friends. There were roses and cotton candy. We went to Lolita in
Boston. It has a good atmosphere and the food is decent. It
was a fun place to go to v-day with gal pals.
Friday morning Casey and I trekked down to Faneuil Hall because
the Today show was filming in Boston! Ahhh! Now you might remember
how much I love Matt Lauer so I didn’t even care when my alarm went off
at 4am. I pretty much rolled out of bed, picked up Casey and illegally parked
“Hey everyone, come see how good we look!” We were pumped. And a little
tired and hungry. No coffee. Just running on adrenaline. We arrive around 5:30.
Good thing we did.
Because we met sister Savannah Guthrie! I kept shouting while practically
ripping my jacket off, “we’re pi phi’s!!” She finally made her way over and
said “my pi phi girls!” We got huge hugs and this beautiful photo. Yeah.
Then Mindy Kaling showed up! WHAT?!! Didn’t expect that. What a peach
she was. She walked around the crowd talking to everyone. And she was a brave
soul wearing 5inch heels on the cobblestone streets.
It was a cool experience. I was bummed Matt didn’t make it to us and I wasn’t
able to touch his abs, but it was still awesome and we had a ton of fun
hanging out and seeing it live.
After the show, I went home for a nap and to pack for a weekend in
Maine. Since I’m tapering, rest and relaxation is really important.
No booze will pass these lips until I finish the marathon. Hydration mode
is fully on. It feels ok actually. What also felt ok?
My snowy 6 mile run today to keep the legs moving and healthy.
I wasn’t feeling it until mile 4 but that happens sometimes and you just
have to keep your head in the game.
When the run was over I played some checkers with this New Year’s
Princess. She keeps wearing this crown like a headband. It’s cool. She’s pretty
trendy and goes to the beat of her own drum.
Now look. It’s been awhile since I’ve talked about my love of the week.
Well it’s time. Now, my stalking is getting sick. And I’m sorry that I’m
not sorry. I love you. I do. I can’t get enough of you. It’s getting real bad.
So might say… I’m obsessed. And they’d be right.
I just bought my clarisonic mia. I purchased this thing on Tuesday and literally
have used it a handful of times already. Until a friend told me that I was stripping
my skin of the good stuff. Oops. I’ll back off a little. But honestly- if you don’t own one…
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! It feels like facial every time you use it.
Anddddd I’ve been using my on my chest and back. I’ve been having some break
outs due to all the running and this thing is already working wonders.
If you want to glow like J.Lo. Get this!
