1st day

Hello from Virginia!

Sorry I’ve been MIA – I had Auburn stuff to wrap up, LOTS of packing, and then driving to Virginia.

Today was my first day at George Mason and it was awesome!

I am staying with a friend until I get the keys to my place (hopefully Wednesday) and then the movers should deliver my stuff late this week/early next week.

I miss you guys and wish I had time to write a Marathon wrap up, but hopefully soon!


Holding strong in the 178s for weeks. I know with my previous races I’ve always gained, so I’m happy to see I’m maintaining at least. 

Once I recover a bit more for the marathon and get settled in VA – I look forward to hitting the ground RUNNING/LIFTING/SPINNING/CRUNCHING!

Waiting at the gate reflecting on my trip. Don’t get me wrong I wish it wasn’t SO COLD and rainy most of the trip, but other than that I really can’t complain.

I got to spend the trip with Kelly, one of my best friends who I don’t get to see enough.

Here are the quick highlights:

Wed: hung out all day at the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica.

Thurs: Went to the HIMYM set and WATCHED the cast filming a scene in MacLaurens. Met friends for dinner and drinks at USC and explored campus.

Fri: Awesome brunch on the beach in Malibu. Explored Pepperdine’s gorgeous campus. Race expo and bib pick up.

Sat: DAVID COOK LUNCHEON. Having great conversations with Dave – including telling him my marathon “story.” Getting pictures with him and he signed my race bib.

Sun: Great weather. RAN A MARATHON. Ate In-N-Out Burger.

Mon: Slept 12 hours. Feel sore, but not as bad as I thought.

I have a big week ahead of me, full of goodbyes, packing, driving, and starting a new job!
