Life Update!

Good morning good morning!! I’m writing to you not from my desk but from my kitchen table! I am taking today off to spend time with my little sister (from my sorority) who I haven’t seen in what feels like a billion years. When I landed on Friday night from New Mexico, there she was! We have had such an amazing weekend. It’s been sooooo much fun to drag her all over Boston (and the surrounding towns of course) and show her all of my fave haunts. We went to one of my fave spots EVER Highland Kitchen in Somerville, MA and got amazinggg food and drinks.

Yesterday we ran in the Jingle Bell 5K with 7,000 of our closest friends. People were DECKED OUT. It was pretty fantastic. I did “okaaaay” for me and ran it in about 26 minutes. It was not a PR but at least I was faster than 8:30 min/mile. πŸ˜‰

I made a pretty stellar muesli with apples, cranberries and spices cooked right in for our pre race breakfast. Don’t worry, recipes to come. It’s kinda tricky writing posts from your phone, so check back later on. I topped the muesli with banana, pomegranate, cacao nibs, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, coconut and almond butter. It was one of the best combos I’ve ever made! Amazingggg.

Today we are going to get to so my dream day off – gym (check, already done), a mellow morning yoga class and then shopping on Newbury Street and romping all over Boston to see my fave city all snazzed up for the Holidays.

Welp, I’m off to have my holiday filled day! I hope you all had great weekends and have a great Monday today!!

With warmth,

    • Sweeet! It was so much fun! If you saw six ladies in a red glittery poinsettia crown and lots of hand crafted jingle bell jewelry (earrings/necklace) then that was us! πŸ˜‰ It was a super fun race!! We also had a great time yesterday romping around.

  1. Judging by the photo, it looks like you started the Jingle Bell pretty far back… so you very likely passed me! I ran it too, but in 32 minutes πŸ™‚

    • Hahaha! We were feeling pretty mellow about it, so we were back in the 14 minute pace area (with all the strollers), and my little (who used to run cross country and slayed 5K’s left and right) was like “I’m into it! Let’s do this!” – and took off. So it was basically me chasing her for 3.1 miles while she was caning it through the course. It was fantastic!!
