TGIF!! It really doesn’t matter to me that it’s Friday since I’m on Christmas Break everyday, but I know most of ya’ll are so glad it’s Friday!! I’m excited that it’s the weekend because my brother graduates from college tomorrow!! Yay Josh!! He is graduating from the University of Memphis (that’s where I graduated too) with a bachelor’s of science in biology. He is hoping to get into a biology research program at UT Memphis (where I am currently in school) that would start next fall. He is so smart and I am so proud of him! Looking forward to spending the day with my family tomorrow!




This is me and my brother at my Dad’s Birthday dinner in November. See a resemblance? I don’t! Haha :)



I had an 8 miler on the schedule today, and 8 miles is what I did!! I woke up around 6:30am, ate half a Banana Nut Bread Clif Bar, and headed out to my parent’s house to run out there. I wasn’t really mentally into this run. I was just so ready to be finished, but I wanted to do the whole 8 miles so I just kept pushing myself to finish it. Physically I felt pretty good. I started out way too fast, and knew I was going too fast but didn’t hold myself back, so the last couple miles weren’t exactly fun. But, I finished with an average pace of 10:16/mile so that made me happy!! I felt GREAT after my run! I immediately had a huge appetite, which is rare for me after longer runs, and haven’t really been sore at all today! That makes me happy :)  My headphones died during my run today which was really annoying! I have had these headphones for years! I think like 6 years or so, so they had a good life but it was so annoying that they decided to die in the middle of the run. Luckily, I went shopping with my mom this afternoon and was able to pick up a new pair for my run on Sunday. I don’t like doing longer runs without music unless I’m running with someone!


I am debating on whether to get up super early before the graduation (it’s a morning graduation) and doing a boot camp workout or just sleeping in. I bet I end up getting up early and working out… guess we will see :) Anyone have any fun weekend plans?? I think I just about finished my Christmas shopping today! Yay!! I just wish I had more presents to wrap! I totally love wrapping presents! I have literally wrapped almost every gift under my parent’s tree, except my gifts obviously!! Well, have a great weekend ya’ll!


  1. Wow 8 miles is a great run!! Congrats!

  2. Great job on the 8 miler and total bummer about the headphones dying. I've had mine for a while too and can't believe they still work after all the sweat that's been on them lol.

  3. I like the new blog look! Cute picture! Enjoy these last few days before christmas and have a wonderful christmas with family!
