Hello from Starbucks! My internet at home isn’t working so instead of freak out I grabbed my stuff and headed to the ‘bucks. This was the perfect time to try their new Orange Spice Iced Coffee too! Eh. Didn’t impress.
I had jury duty this week and called in every day and wasn’t picked to come in! My one friend thought that was ‘lucky’ but I wanted to go – is that weird?
Well, I have some good news and some bad news…
Bad news first, right?
I’m not going to Fitbloggin this weekend
It was a super last minute thing, but after I was MIA on our anniversary Ben planned a mini-road trip and didn’t realize I was supposed to be in Portland this weekend. I’m super bummed.
The good news is I will be able to run the Pasadena Half Marathon on Sunday! We’re just going north of LA and on the way back Sunday morning we’ll do a ‘half marathon pit-stop’. Ha! It’s kinda crazy, but I like it.
In other bad news turned good news I’m missing Portland, OR but I will be going to Portland MAINE in August!!!
I was chosen to be on the Cabot Fit Team – a group of bloggers and farmers who want to spread the word about wellness through exercise and nutrition.
And on August 3rd I will run the Beach to Beacon 10k in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. I am super super excited because I don’t think I would ever have traveled to Maine if not for this opportunity!
It’s basically the farthest point country from me (in the 48)! I’m looking forward to checking out the north east and eating some lobsta.
The Beach to Beacon is sold out. But I’ll report back with a full review after the race so you can jump on it if you’re local.
Added bonus of being on the Cabot Fit Team?
They sent me a TON of delicious cheese! I love a super sharp cheddar – this one is the BEST in the world. It’s all fancy-like wrapped in wax too…
Dinner – Last night I made quinoa, asparagus and topped it with 2 eggs and shredded cheddar. So easy and yet amazing.
More Good News…
I will be running the Shoreline Half Marathon in Ventura on July 14th. I’ve never done this one before, but July half marathons are very hard to find AND I’ve heard it’s a great course!
