I had such a great trail run this morning with my new friends and fellow masters students!
I love trail running and Iâ€™m so excited to know this trail is nearby! Iâ€™m also super excited to already have running buddies â€” thatâ€™s the hardest thing about moving to a new place as far as Iâ€™m concerned. ðŸ˜‰
We ran 5.14 miles in about 54 minutes. Itâ€™s hard to run fast on a hilly and rocky trail â€” gotta watch your feet so you donâ€™t fall! ðŸ™‚
Are you guys fans of trail running? I think running on a trail makes running SO much more entertaining. We had a blast maneuvering through the hilly, rocky terrain and chatting away the whole time.
After the run, I bonded with an old friend â€” my foam roller! If youâ€™re a runner and you donâ€™t own one of these, Iâ€™d really recommend getting one! It made SUCH a huge difference for me when I was training for my first half marathon in the spring. Really helps with soreness and muscle recovery!
Speaking of my half marathon, look what I finally got around to buying for my car! ðŸ˜€
13.1, baby! ðŸ™‚
After my run, I met up with a high school friend for lunch (so excited to have an old friend nearby!) and then headed to Franklin Street (the main drag in Chapel Hill) to meet a friend from DC who is in town!
Hi Kristen! ðŸ™‚
We walked around, chatted, and decided that the only solution for such a hot day was frozen yogurt. Duh.
Iâ€™m off to enjoy a rocking Saturday night by myself â€” Matt left this morning for a week-long work trip. Boo! I figure since I have no plans I should try to get some work done so I can play tomorrow ðŸ™‚ Howeverâ€¦ I have a TV for the first time in 2 years. We just got it hooked up yesterday and I forgot how awesome TV is! This could be dangerous. I am so out of the loop and donâ€™t know what most of the shows are. Also, why are commercials so much louder than the regular shows?!
