Well hey there! I hope you had a great weekend!
Today I thought I’d give you all an update on my training for the Palmetto 200, as well as let you know about an AWESOME local race for Chicagoans in April. First up, Palmetto 200 training! If you missed my first training post, the Palmetto 200 is a relay from Columbia, SC to Charleston, SC and is run similar to a Ragnar, which I’m sure many of you are more familiar with.
I’m not sure exactly what I’ll be running yet, but I know I’ll be running anywhere from 12-20 miles over the course of 2 days, so my goal with training has been to run back to back days to get used to running on tired legs.

Hey everyone! Wooohooo Thursday! It’s 5am and I’m about to head out into “freezing rain…” REALLY? I guess that’s what we get when we hope for the weather to warm up! So lovely. Anyway, on to this week’s Thursday Thoughts!
1. So I work near the Wrigley building downtown and I noticed that in three of the windows (that I can see) there are lights shining out of the window. I am HORRIBLY curious about it and after not finding anything on google and then mentioning it to my cousin she said it’s now my responsibility to find out what they are. I will report back next Thursday.

this is a compensated post, however all opinions are my own
Last Wednesday evening I head to Fleet Fleet Chicago for the New Balance Fresh Foam 980 launch party. The party was packed with runners excited to try out the new Fresh Foam running shoes. After finding Maggie and Erica, we headed out for a three mile fun run with the group.
To be honest – I hadn’t run outside for months! It was just too cold for my taste. Luckily we survived the run and I had a good time catching up with my running buddies.

I hope you all had a good weekend (yes, I know it’s Tuesday), because I did! My friend Maddie came into town and it was so nice to have her here and have her meet some of my friends and just finally see everything I’ve been talking about for all this time (she hasn’t visited since spring of 2011!).
Today I thought I’d do another round of answers to the Ask Me Anything Questions! If you missed them, here are my other Ask Me Anything posts:

We all know I’m a little obsessed with Pinterest, especially my style page. One of the things I don’t like about Pinterest, however, is that it makes me want all these things that I can’t afford.
So, I decided to take one of my favorite pinned outfits and re-create it only shopping at Old Navy, Target, H&M and Forever 21. I’ve put together options for each piece (excluding the clutch) for you all if you want to find them on your own. I also love to shop at Marshalls and TJMaxx, but those don’t have sites for their clothing since they sell whatever items are brought in and it varies store to store.

Happy Valentines Day everyone!
For the first time since I was in 5th grade (the last year we were all required to give one another valentines in our adorably decorated shoeboxes) I’m actually excited about Valentine’s Day!

Hey everyone – HAPPY THURSDAY! I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited for a Thursday! Haha – I can finally watch the Bachelor tonight! And relax… Anyway, on to this week’s Thursday Thoughts!
1. So last night was the New Balance Fresh Foam launch party, and I was pleasantly surprised! There was a HUGE turnout, great stuff, and everyone there seemed to be having a great time. I’ll definitely blog more about it, along with my final review of their shoes, next week.

It’s been a while since my last PicMonkey post! I wanted to let you know I’m now a PicMonkey Affiliate, meaning that if you sign up for Prime I do receive a commission. However, as you all know, I have been singing praises for PicMonkey since I discovered the site well over a year ago, so it’s a product I promote no matter what!
