Running Around Saturday

Ahhh relaxation. :-DI have about 4 hours of nothingness before my race and I’m just basking in it! And although it’s cold and raining, I have a feeling I’m going to run my little heart out.

edit: about 10 minutes after I posted this, my neck glands are swollen and I’m feeling a little shaky. Gah! I’ll let you know how it goes…

Yesterday was again, nonstop. I set my alarm bright and early for 6:30 a.m. to get to my training class from 8-12. Before I left for that, I had the two best breakfast pairings in the world 🙂

Green monster and a breakfast cookie (the same one I’ve been having the past several days – I’m a on a kick!)

Class was amazing! Our instructor basically went over all of the main muscle groups in the body, and taught us different ways to work those muscles. I really learned a lot of applicable information, which was awesome! We had lots of tools to work with, too – like a balance ball, a BOSU, tubing, steps, and dumbbells:


In my head, I’ve created a new workout using the stability ball I want to show on the blog, and I really, really want a BOSU for Christmas!! haha The time absolutely flew by. I wish we had another Saturday class, but unfortunately this was it.

I had a shower to go to at 2:00, and had a couple things to do before that, so I came home and made the quickest lunch possible:

Then I headed to West-side Walmart, where I felt like I was in a issue to get some diapers for the baby shower, and then headed to the new Uptown Normal Marriott to pick up my race packet. This was the first time I’ve ever been to the new Marriott, and it is absolutely gorgeous inside!! Take a lookski:

That’s in the freakin’ lobby!! I felt like I should be in Chicago, not…Normal! haha

The race shirts are pretty sweet looking, too:


Then it was off to the baby shower for my great friend, Heidi. There was yummy veggies, chips, and dip to be eaten:

We played lots of fun games about the mama-to-be, and then ate some cake – Janet’s cake, so you know it was phenomenal!

After the shower, I had to go to yet another grocery store to pick up some essentials I forgot to pick up the last 4 times, and then head home and get ready for dinner! Dinner was at Rosies, and was amazing, but I forgot to take my camera. I had the eggplant rollatini – SO, SO good.
