Mondayyyyy. i sooooort of want to hate it, but i was up and at ’em and physically in the gym by 6am this morning and had such a good circuit training session that i can’t actualllly hate it.
this weekend was a blur of activity, starting off with 13 hours of sleep on Friday night (note to self: stay in on Thursdays from now on). needless to say, i knew i needed to buck up and punish my lazy socialite self with a long run on Saturday morning. i had the number 12 in my head, so 12 it was. bam.
rarely turns out that way, but God knew i needed a little pick-me-upper in the shape of a good run, so this 12-miler on Saturday felt gooood. even if i didn’t get out there til almost 11 and ended up running in the heat of the blistering day. all under 9 minute miles, with a bit of an aggressive start? i’ll take it.
i then set out to try on bridesmaids dresses for T’s upcoming wedding. she found this awesome online company called Little Borrowed Dress — anyone heard of this?
you can check it out yourself, but basically, you can rent bridesmaids dresses for way cheap. this is pretty much a dream come true, if you happen to like any of their styles. their showroom is in NYC, so i offered to try on the 3 that T had chosen. the material was light and breezy and ideal for summer/beach weddings, and i thought the Hillary style was their cutest:
they have a wide variety of colors to choose from, and they send you two different sizes even if you know your size. i was pretty impressed with them, and it looks like we just might have a contender here.
Saturday then pushed me on over to Long Island City, right in Queens across the East River, which has some of the prettiest views of Manhattan imaginable. ’twas a lovely spot to have drinks with friends on a rooftop and then on the pier and watch the sunset.
anyhoo, this is about where i’m at today and all i keep telling myself:
Tell me something good about your weekend!
Runners: any good runs this weekend? Is it hot where you are?
Any ugly/good bridesmaid dress tales? 🙂
