Just what I needed and an iTunes giftcard GIVEAWAY

Posted Oct 24 2012 9:13pm

I am feeling incredibly blessed with the small things in life right now. Several little things have happened the past few weeks which were just what I needed.

A couple weekends ago, my best girl friends from Dallas came to visit. We are spread out in New Orleans, Dallas and Nashville now so it was wonderful to have a whole weekend together to explore Nashville and spend quality time together. Girl time was just what I needed.

love these girls.

After having a really rough training run a couple weeks ago, my final 20 miler was excellent in every way possible. The weather was lovely, my pace was strong and my running buddy Jae Jae was there to keep me company. I couldn’t have asked for a better long run before tapering.

Before that long run, I exchanged several emails with my coach regarding not running NYCM because I had convinced myself that I wasn’t capable of it. Dorothy’s words, encouragement and understanding were exactly what I needed.

I am in it. for sure!

We bought Chester Halloween pajamas a few weeks ago and just tried them on him last week. We laughed so hard that our stomachs hurt (that counts as ab work, yes?). As a 75 lb puppy, Chester tests our patience daily (like when he pulls the gutters off the house). But, luckily, he is so adorable we can’t do anything but love the big goober. We haven’t laughed together like that in a long time – it was just what we (as a couple) needed.

I started Fitmixer’s bootcamp several weeks ago. I can’t say enough amazing things about the Company, the Fitmixer staff, the amazing community of bootcampers and the ability for the workouts to get me out of my fitness rut. In fact, I have already signed up for January’s bootcamp!

A few months ago, I took a plunge outside my comfort zone and signed up for Nashville Running Company’s Interval Training (track workouts) and started running with the East Nasty running group on Wednesday nights. Through these, I met a new speedy running friend. It’s so nice to see her and run with her a couple times a week. I’ve also met a ton of other runners and am finally feeling that I have a place in the Nashville running community. This is totally what I needed to get me excited about running and remind myself that I run because I LOVE TO RUN.

The trees are changing colors in amazing, gorgeous, breath-taking ways. Fall is my favorite time of year and I am so lucky to be living in such a beautiful place.

love fall morning runs

We attended our first HOA meeting this week and met a bunch of couples in our neighborhood. It was great to get to know them briefly and hopefully this will help us feel more at home in Nashville. I even got elected Social Chair which should be a fun way to get to know our neighbors and help bring everyone together.

And that folks, is my random list of the things that have been just what I needed lately.

So, what has happened recently that was just what you needed – BIG or small?

Maybe you need some new tunes?!
