This week...and other randoms

Happy Friday!! I hope everyone's had a great week!

First, I would like to draw your attention to this:

My guest post on The Singing Runner is up!! Go check it out if you haven't already! Shameless self promotion. ;) If you're coming over here from TSR, welcome!! Feel free to browse, read, and/or comment. :)

Some of you regular readers may have seen this earlier:
I am still taking outfit/style tips. Haha. The place we're going is casual, so jeans are perfectly acceptable to suggest. :)

100th post!

Good morning all!

Hope everyone is having a great week so far! Mine has been crazy busy, as I expected. I'm back from spring break (Boo!!) so my profs have, of course, been piling on the work.

I've had a few other...uh...interesting things happen this week, but I'll save THAT for a later post. ;)

Workout song of the week:

Artist: TobyMac
Song: Funky Jesus Music
Album: Tonight (2010)

One of my friends introduced me to this song, and even though it's not really my "style" of music, it's been great to exercise to. It has also been stuck in my head for the past 4 days.

Time for class to start!

Short and sweet

Hey bloggies!

I recently had the opportunity to write a guest post for The Singing Runner while she's on her trip to Costa Rica. It's a combination "my workout routine/how to deal with injury" post. Look for it the evening of March 18!

Thanks Katy for letting me write a post for TSR! Stay safe in Costa Rica!

So...I was sure I posted a recap of my first 5K (walk) but I logged on this morning and discovered I didn't!! Lo siento. I feel like I've been going nonstop ever since then. Thankfully I'm on spring break (!!) so I can post my long overdue recap.

First, my playlist (which worked really well to keep me motivated)

Dude why does that always end up so tiny? Sorry y'all!! I tried to make it bigger and it got really blurry!

If anyone can't read that and wants me to type it all out, leave a comment and I'll do it in my next post!

There were a TON of people at the 5K walk. I heard later that there were something like 3,000+, which I really didn't expect!! I got a picture of the starting line but Blogger refuses to size it the way I want it, so take my word for it...there were a TON of people.

I enjoyed my normal breakfast of cereal and yogurt before heading out. When I got to the expo, there was a table giving out mini Larabars, so of course I had one (unpictured). It was the Coconut Cream Pie flavor and it was delicious. I ended up coming back post-race to grab a Cherry Pie Larabar. Also very good.

The weather was absolutely perfect - not too hot, not too cold! The only complaint I had about the course is that they ran out of water stations at the very end. Next time, I'll bring my own water bottle!
