Women Run Memphis

Hello bloggie land!! Hope everyone is having a spectacular weekend!! I had an early clinical this morning for my Physical Diagnosis class doing school physicals at a health fair. Lets just say it wasn’t the best idea to put us in the same room as the immunizations! Needless to say, there were lots of unhappy kiddos when they got to us but luckily we were able to charm most of them with stickers and promises of no needle sticks!

I got up at 5am so I could get a quick run in before I had to go to the health fair. I only had time for a quick 2 miler and then I also walked Sadie. She liked that! Tomorrow I have plans for a 4 miler so I better make myself get up and going early to beat the heat! I can’t even explain how humid it is here! The air is just so thick, makes you not want to go outside at all!!

In other news… I decided to join the Women Run Memphis program! It’s been going on for a few years now and I’ve always wanted to do it, but have always had schedule conflicts. I totally forgot about it until Katie told me she was going to do it and surprisingly, I have no conflicts this year! It’s basically a 10 week running program with weekly running clinics on Monday evenings that ends with a 5k race in September! They open it up from beginner runners to advanced runners. Obviously, I can already run a 5k but I think it would be wonderful to meet other women runners and hopefully (fingers crossed) find some new running buddies!! Plus, it will help give some variety to my runs. I am planning on joining the intermediate 2 group. Doesn’t this sound fun?!? Anyone in Memphis want to join me? Let me know!!

I also wanted to let y’all know that the Hot Cocoa Peanut Butter Blondies were a big hit with my friends from school also!! I brought a couple of them to give to 2 of my buds and they loved them!! And I forgot to mention this yesterday, but I used cocoa powder instead of hot cocoa packets(because I didn’t have any) and they turned out wonderful! Hubby may or may not have snuck 3 of them last night!! Only 2 left for today!! Haha :) We love sweets in this house!!

On that note, I gotta run. Time to get a little studying done! I will leave you with a picture of my Sadie doing what she does best!



  1. so excited about us both doing the training program! I will stick with Intermediate 1 for the first week, and maybe move to Intermediate 2 the second week. I'm not quite ready for Advanced yet! Maybe next year :) I'm excited about meeting new people too--maybe I can find some Colliervillians to run with me.

    are you doing any 5ks this Fall??

  2. Katie- I was told by someone who has done the training program before that I should do the advanced, so I guess that's what I'm going to do :) I will definitely be doing some 5k's this fall and probably the St. Jude half! Not sure which 5k's yet though :)

  3. Nice! the women run memphis sounds like a cool group! And your dog is so cute!
