I’m going to go ahead and be very honest here for a moment: life happened and my marathon training totally derailed.
In addition to all the fun and exciting things that I knew were coming, there was also one major surprise.
Last Monday I was supposed to go to lunch with my boyfriend. I walked out to the parking lot at work thinking about cheeseburgers and onion rings and wound up with a very different kind of ring!
Yup, this girl is getting hitched!
Gratuitous ring pic...conveniently taken after I went and got an emergency manicure. He asked if I was surprised or if I had been suspecting he might propose...I told him if I was expecting it my nails would have been painted and all one length!
The day before, I also went on an awesome hiking trip with Hank and some friends (both two and four-legged) which I justified as replacing my long run even before we started. Halfway through I realized that hiking was actually way more exhausting than any run I have ever been on.
We got some pretty great pictures though :) By which I mean I got good pictures of Hank. I looked like a goof.
I also started my MBA last week. Because I totally needed one more thing to add to the list of activities! My book didn't get here this weekend as planned so tonight I will be doing lots of homework. I really hate to start the class this way but I don't have much other choice.
But before homework it's time to go do a little running (on the treadmill because the weather has turned brutal!)
Hope you have an amazing Monday evening!
