Man! I missed you guys!
Last week was absolutely crazy.
I have so much to tell you about.
Let’s do it!
I took 1/2 of Wednesday off to meet my family for a surprise birthday party for my mom.
(Sister, Mom and I)
It was a fantastic day and she was actually very surprised, which was awesome!
On Thursday, I laid around like a lazy person and binge watched “Making a Murderer” on Netflix.
Have you seen it?
If you haven’t, I highly recommend it!
I met two fellow bloggers on Friday for a shakeout run at a local sports recovery shop (Moore Sports Recovery).
They are both awesome runners and great blogger friends.
As you can see, I decided to take advantage of the opportunity and tested out their Normatec Compression machine!
The machine is pretty cool and will be SUPER helpful when I start getting in some higher mileage.
Don’t be jealous of how cool I look, by the way.
On Saturday, I decided to hire a running coach!
Michelle is a running coach from Canada and she comes highly recommended from other bloggers/peeps in the social media world.
So, I had to jump on it.

My 2 biggest goals for 2016 is to lose an additional 30 lbs and beat my current Half Marathon PR of 1:57.
I’m so excited!
And Sunday was of course another SundayRunday.
Heather and I looked super fast in our ProCompression socks.
Love those suckers.
We did lots of stretching and some strength training.
Yes, you heard that right.
I said strength training…
Remember how I hired a coach?
Well… she likes strength training.
So, I do strength training now.
Did I mention that I met 5,000M Olympic hopeful Jordan Hasay?
Oh well… I did.
