weekend highlights

Hi! I have an overload of photos and need to share them before I take 100 more this Sunday. A quick weekend recap:

Friday – a cold but pretty 5k with Brita!IMG_5372Brita (who already kicks butt on the roller derby court) is thinking about doing a triathlon and is upping her running game. Go, girl!IMG_5378Friday night Anthony and I ate about 100,000 different mini dishes at Taste of Nashville. Full recap coming soon!_DSC0163Then I was back in Shelby Park on Saturday for another run. Since daylight savings hit, I’ve been able to run in the park in the morning again. Yay.IMG_5387Since my marathon is a week away, the goal of the run was to practice race pacing. IMG_5390I tried to stick to a steady 7:45-7:50 pace the whole time. Slightly faster than my usual easy run, but still comfortable.IMG_5389A little faster than I was hoping for, but not too bad!IMG_5392Now I just need to hold that pace for 20 more miles this Saturday… :0

Biggest accomplishment of the weekend: baking my first semi-successful SWIRL bread! (Carbtastic chronicles post coming soon)IMG_5394After such hard work, wine + tacos sounded too right. Followed by too much Mad Men._DSC0207Now, we’re off to tackle a big to-do list and some fun outings too :) Hope you’re having a lovely weekend!
