My Birthday Weekend: Pictures, Food and Snippets


Sunday: 6 miles @ 8:32 pace on trail

Monday: 4 miles @ 8:40 pace on treadmill

Tuesday: Body Pump



Ran outside, ate pancakes, went to Body Pump. Did a little too much shopping, which I actually dislike very much.

Dropped by a 90’s theme party.

Pams Party

Ate dinner at my parents. Yummy stir fry and brown rice. The Trader Joe’s Jasmine Brown Rice is so easy to cook and the fluffiest brown rice I’ve had.

Watched Rich’s (my sister’s BF) baseball game, while consuming Pop Rocks from the 90’s party. His team is in the playoffs and they won, so next week will be the Championship. Holler!



Woke up to gorgeous weather (one of the best presents a runner can get). Got to the trail and found these ladies, before running an awesome 6 miler in my new Nuun tech T. Boom.


Had Riley fetch sticks. Yes, my dog really fetches and brings it back. She’s amazing.

Went to Cristino’s for some coal fired birthday pizza with the family (minus (the best) one).


Recovered from my “long run” with PRO and my dates, Ben & Jerry… thanks to my wonderful BDay surprise from Christina.


Remember when I chased down the Ben&Jerry’s Core Tour Truck? Good Times. You would think that’s the end… but nope! I also had some freaking delicious cookies that Rich’s mom made. They might just be the best cookies I’ve had. They are like a combo of fudge and brownie in cookie form. There’s chocolate and peanut butter chips, as well as nuts and raisins, which surprisingly taste like marshmallows. Little hockey pucks of chocolate goodness.


So there, you have it. My birthday weekend in a nutshell.

How was YOUR weekend?
