Trail Running & New Running Buddies

I had such a great trail run this morning with my new friends and fellow masters students!

I love trail running and I’m so excited to know this trail is nearby! I’m also super excited to already have running buddies — that’s the hardest thing about moving to a new place as far as I’m concerned. 😉

We ran 5.14 miles in about 54 minutes. It’s hard to run fast on a hilly and rocky trail — gotta watch your feet so you don’t fall! 🙂

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 — my foam roller! If you’re a runner and you don’t own one of these, I’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! 😀

13.1, baby! 🙂

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! 🙂

We walked around, chatted, and decided that the only solution for such a hot day was frozen yogurt. Duh.


I’m off to enjoy a rocking Saturday night by myself — 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 🙂 However… 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 don’t know what most of the shows are. Also, why are commercials so much louder than the regular shows?!
