New Fall Flow…

Happy Start to Fall…
Not that I am ready to say goodbye to Summer, but I do love all things Pumpkin, Runs in Cooler/ Breathable weather, sitting outside and breathing in the fresh air…these are all major plus points for me and fall. Fall also means a little more juggling and balancing for me. So this week, I took some moments to enjoy even when I was working, and headed to the greenway in Boston to get some computer work in!

It was great to be outside, getting work done and not straight up melting! Being in Boston also meant I got to see this little nugget and travel to the North End for some yummy treats!

Being at home has perks beyond work, food, and family, it also means I can get back on a strength training and running schedule. This year has been busy and crazy fun, but training has been hard, intense, tiring, and sometimes just not happening. So when I get a week I can get in the gym, get some strength in and feel powerful I LOVE it!

Friday Fun

Happy Happy Friday!
It’s almost the weekend!
This weekend I am taking this Spartan Certification so needed to get my long run in. Luckily I have the best running buddy in the world and she agreed to run some of mil miles with me- shes the best! I had taought 3 classes yesterday so my legs were gone! And we added in a new squat on your toes hamstring killer move so I knew without her this run was not happening, it was also going to be COLD and dark. I stayed at my parents last night and my sister had whipped these guys up…so yummy homemade Lara Bars, Key Lime Flavored!
friday
I had one of these, a glass of water and was out the door by 5:20 to get a few miles in, meet M and run with her, and then finish on my own. Another perk of a running buddy they stop and enjoy the sunrise with you!
friday 2
A sunrise like this makes 5 am seem do able right?!?! The run is always nice and on the water and with views like this 18 miles flies by, okay thats a lie it doesn’t fly by ha but it is pretty and the company is even better!
