Pluses and Minuses

Are you as happy as I am that it's Monday? No? Okay, just kidding, I'm not either.

+ First things first, notice anything new around here?! Thanks to Erin this blog just got a big ol' makeover! Even though I had no idea what I really wanted at first, and sent Erin like 40 thousand annoying emails that surely made her want to reach through her screen and strangle me, she was so patient and awesome to work with! I am loving the new look and hope you are too. Thank you, Erin!!!

+ Spring has sprung! It took its sweet time, but now that the frost has completely thawed from the ground and my brain, it almost feels like these nice days never left. 

+ Ben and I went on a date to Waffle House and Sonic this weekend because we are so classy like that. I don't think I had been to Waffle House in close to 20 years (omg I'm a dinosaur) but had the most random urge to go. 

- I had to be at school at 8:30am on Saturday, yuck!

- I had plans on Saturday that got changed to Sunday and it kinda threw my whole weekend off. This should not be as big of a deal as it is, I know. 

+ Change of plans on Saturday meant Starbucks runs and more time hanging with these handsome dudes, so I can't even be mad.



+ Sunday was the 1 year anniversary of my first triathlon/first multi-sport event. I celebrated by completing my first duathlon (run bike run) (if you follow me on Instagram you already know this, and if not, what are you waiting for?). + My runs were ridiculously great, + my knee didn't bother me one bit, and + I PR'ed the 5k (27:45)! (I have run faster ones but not officially...but I don't think that's too bad for running 5k and then biking 23 hilly miles beforehand). + I also placed second in my age group (don't ask me how many were in it ;)). My trophy is a wooden owl! Try not to be jealous.



- My pool was closed Saturday for a swim meet so I planned to swim Saturday in between the duathlon and studying...but I fell asleep instead.

Annnd that was my weekend. Gone in a flash like usual!

  1. I now have the Ke$ha "Dinosaur" song stuck in my head, and I kindof hate you for it.

  3. First of all, thanks for linking up with Move It Monday! yay for fellow VA bloggers (and Hokies!!) Looks like an awesome weekend though. Congrats on your duathalon! I've actually never seen a duathalon around here - I'm going to have to check it out. The swimming part of a triathalon is always the bit that makes me nervous to try!
