Race Week, weekend re-cap and more WINNERS!

April 1st is here!  The Chicago Cubs season kicks into gear today and March is in books!  It also means that race week is here!  I’m running my first 1/2 marathon of the season on Saturday and after my exhilarating  12 miler this past weekend I am ready!

Debbie over at Healthy Running Mom and I are headed down to  Springfield, IL after work on Friday to run the Lincoln Presidential 1/2 Marathon!  This is the first time I have traveled beyond the city of Chicago for a race!  I’m so excited!  I’ll be watching the weather like a crazy lady all week in hopes for a repeat performance of the temps we had here this weekend.

This is true love!  The Hubs giving Sara a morning mani!

The Hubs and I saw the movie Olympus has Fallen!  For all you 24 fans out there, I highly  recommend it!  I’m a huge Morgan Freeman fan too!  Shawshank Redemption is my absolute favorite movie and it never gets old!

We tried a fun new restaurant that we were a little skeptical about when we realized it was in a strip mall, but we do live in  suburbia now!  We both had great dinners and had no problem finishing up this bottle of wine!

The Hubs heads back to work and I get a few more days off!  Today I’m planning on going to Bikram then I’m going to get fitted for new gym shoes!  I was fitted in 2006 when I was training for my first marathon and have been living in my Adidas Supernova shoes since then.  I’m not disappointed with the shoes but my speed has changed and I’m guessing how I run has also changed so I’m going to get fitted by the pro’s at Road Runner Sports!  I’ll let you know what happens.

Onto the winners….

The Race-Kred winner is #105 Angela@ Happy Fit Mama

The Manduka Hand Towel winner is #86 Realia Mazing

The ISOPURE Protein Drink winner is #33 Sarah McCutcheon

Congrats ladies!  Contact me and send me your info!

I’m off to enjoy a busy ME day!  I can’t wait!  What do you like to do when you have a full day of ME time?

  1. Looking forward to our fun “me” time this weekend!
    I’m not as prepared as you for this 1/2, my body is aching for some reason, but keep watching the weather, as you know I need good weather :).
    Love the mani!!!! Benji used to do that with our girls. He’d even give them polka dots.

  4. Shawshank is my husband’s #1 movie of all time too! So every time it’s on TV, we have to drop everything and watch it. 🙂 Therefore, I’ve seen it a bazillion times and, you’re right, NEVER gets old! Somehow I haven’t heard a thing about Olympus though.

    I’m planning a shoe fitting sesh soon too–it’ll be interesting to see how what they say my body does jives with what I THINK my body does. 🙂

    Man, awesome 12-miler btw! You’re crazy speedy!

  5. I LOVE Shawshank which now makes me want to watch Olympus Has Fallen. I had never heard about it or seen previews so thanks for the tip.
