Easter Eleven

Hey loves! Did you have a lovely weekend? Mine went by in a fury, but it was a good one!

I just finished up a delicious breakfast of … OIAJ!


With some L-O-V-E coffee:D


It must have been a huge batch, because I couldn’t even finish it!

Easter Eleven

Since I had to train clients all afternoon on Saturday, I planned my long run for Sunday…Easter Sunday!




It was a difficult one. I started out in a long sleeve shirt w/ a tank underneath. It was about 60º and windy, but I got hot, fast. Luckily, I had a friend biking it with me! They were ever so kind to take the shirt off my hands!

I went through the initial “I can’t do this” until I got past the two mile hump. Then everything was smooth sailing! Well, until about mile 7. I started breaking down, and my right hip was giving me trouble. Around mile 8.5 I decided to start taking a walking break at the end of each mile, and that (that and my CamelBak) helped immensely!

Break it down, baby!

1 – 10:08

2 – 9:42

3 – 9:36

4 – 9:32

5 – 9:44

6 – 9:31

7 – 9:17

8 – 9:44

9 – 9:53

10 – 10:08

11 – 10:22 (BEAT)

So not, necessarily negative splits, but I’ll take it. Total time:1:47:41.

And I got sun burnt. On the trail! In April! In Illinois!


Better lather on the sunscreen next time!


Have a marvelous Monday, all!!

  1. Congrats on the great run, but definitely get out some 30 sunscreen. Even in winter, you can get a face burn once you start those long over -an -hour runs.
