A Pretty Great Week/End: Running, Babies & Food

Happy Monday!!! Here’s a rundown of my pretty great week/end… On Wednesday I had a hard workout on the plan and I killed it. I love comparing this training cycle to the last (which wasn’t that long ago) because the paces are getting faster 🙂


On Friday I had another great run with Jolene. We never go out with a pace in mind, we just run and chat and see where we’re at <-a little rhyme for your Monday 😉

Friday afternoon we decided to have dessert first and met up for an ice cream date! Kara even got a goodbye kiss…


Then we went to my mother-in-laws for dinner: pot roast, potatoes, carrots, green beans a Hawaiian rolls.

Pot Roast Dinner

Saturday was baby crafting day! We usually do feet based crafts because it’s easier, but most of the Thanksgiving ideas involved hands, so we went with it! I think Kara’s masterpiece turned out pretty darn cute!


Sunday was my favorite day! The weather was (almost) perfect for my planned marathon pace run: low 50’s with low humidity, but windy. Jolene was kind enough to pace me and it worked out great! Like, really great! I wanted to run around 7:45-7:50 and ended up with 7:41!!! I took a gel at miles 4 and 9 of the pace segment and that worked out well. I can’t thank Jolene enough and I am SO stoked about this run. Pretty sure I’m still on a runner’s high this early Monday morning from it 🙂

Sunday afternoon, we met my parents and sister/boyfriend up for pizza at Cristino’s (one of my fave post run spots). Todd and I split a pizza with procscuitto and basil- SO GOOD! Those 4 pieces hit the spot and Kara was lucky enough for me to share with her…


Then we were off to meet Kara’s new cousin… Henry! He’s still a puppy and very rambunctious. Kara loved him 😉



Hope everyone has a great week and a Happy Thanksgiving! Remember to tell those you love that you’re thankful for them and every thing they do <3  I’m linking up with Erin for my weekend snapshot, Katie for MIMM and the Weekly Wrap! Have a great week my friends!

    • It’s prosciutto and basil on a margarita pizza! And it IS so good! I can’t believe it either… this time last year I was on bed rest with my almost 1 year old… AHH!!!

  1. The pictures of Kara are adorable! Just love her art! Jacquelyn loved her card!!!❤️ I was stoked for you with that run Sunday! You are getting stronger and faster every run!!!

  2. I love Kara’s turkey art. So cute with the perfect colors too. Congrats on that great paced long run! I think I need a Jolene in my life for a little extra encouragement and motivation. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. Thanks for linking, Heather!
