Hello Hello! How is everyone?! I have had a great few days! After work on Thursday I met my good friend Page for a glass of wine at the Last Harrah. It was so great to see Page. Isn’t she adorable?!
While catching up with Page I had two glasses of red wine and some warm mixed bar nuts. Yum!
It was so great to see Page! We hadn’t seen each other in a few months and I was so excited to see her. When I got home I made a quick dinner before crashing for the night. I had a can of Amy’s vegetable barley soup and a grilled cheese on wheat.
For dessert I had two squares of sea salt dark chocolate. It is officially my favorite chocolate.
Friday morning I had a breakfast date with my friend Jill. She came over at 9:30 am and I made us breakfast. We had egg white, cheese and veggie bacon on a whole wheat English muffin and some fruit salad made with strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, watermelon and grapes. It was delicious!
Jill and I walked into downtown to sit poolside, on the way we stopped and got an iced coffee. I got a large iced coffee with vanilla syrup and half and half.
I spend about 2 hours laying by the pool with Jill, it was a great Friday morning 🙂
Jill got some nasty blisters yesterday and I had to do some nurse work in a park bench to get her back on track. I have learned a lot about blisters while training for my half marathon. I am a pro!
We were all craving pizza and hit up Pizzeria Regina for some beer and pizza. We got a pizza with black olives and artichoke hearts. Yummm!
Ice cold beer!!!!!
The pizza and beer were amazing. However, the waitress was incredibly rude! I was actually shocked by her rudeness, she yelled at us from across the restaurant to hurry it up because they needed the table. There were about 3-5 empty tables. SO RUDE!
While we were “hurrying along” the juke box played “here comes the bride” (what juke box even has that?!) and I got pretty emotional! I hope I can keep it together the day of my wedding!
We (myself, Ashley and Jill) spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying the sunshine and a few adult beverages. Later in the evening, we went to the 99 for dinner . We decided to get a few appetizers. We ordered spinach and artichoke dip.
Southwestern egg rolls.
We also got buffalo chicken and potato skins.
I had a little of each except for the chicken.
This morning I got up and did a BUNCH of things around the apartment. Around 1pm I starting thinking, why and I am hungry?! Then I realized that I hadn’t eaten breakfast…oops!!!!! I went to Zumes coffee house with Jill, Belle and Ashley for sandwiches. I got a hummus and veggie wrap.
After lunch we headed to the runners expo for the half marathon to look around and pick up our numbers.
The expo was kind of ho-hum. Fage was there giving away samples, I had a sample with strawberry topping.
It was so yummy!!!! I bought some Clif gel and shock blockers for Adam and I for the race too. The race is organized my the Boston Police and they had a sign up at the expo that had names of all the police officers that died in the line of duty all over the state of MA. It was pretty touching.
This is the half marathon route. It looks long, huh?!
After the expo our friends that are running with us came over and we cooked a spaghetti dinner. We had salad, watermelon, no pudge brownies, whole wheat pasta and garlic bread. YUMMM! I had some whole wheat pasta and garlic bread.
It was awesome! Stephanie made the BEST garlic bread…yum yum!
I also had a few brownies. What?! They are fuel right?!
We had a ton of watermelon, so sweet and so hydrating!!!
I totally got caught eating the watermelon like cereal. It was soooo good!
My friend Melissa made little running goodie bags for all 6 of us runners (including her). It was the sweetest and cutest idea ever!!!
It had gatorade, a banana, oranges, and gummy bears! She is soooooo sweet!
Well, I am going to continue hydrating and hang out with my friends. We are having a mini sleep over! Yay!!!! I am so excited and so nervous about my run tomorrow!!!! I still can’t believe I am running a half marathon!!!!! Next time you guys see me I will have completed my half. Thanks for all your support throughout my training. I will be thinking of all your words of encouragement!!! Wish me luck!!!
