Back for the Fall...a few updates!

It has been a very long time since I have blogged, but I have recently been inspired again by fellow blogger, milesperminute (check her out)! So what may you ask has been happening the past 3 months? Well....quite a bit, but I'm listing 5 main ones!

1. I found my wedding dress & we booked all of our big items for the big day! Still lots to do, but making progress! My mom & sister helped me find my dress at Lace on Bridal Row in Cincinnati!
2. Oliver turned 1 & I posted quite a few pics of him because he is the apple of my eye.
3. My brother got engaged in Italy over Labor Day! I will soon have another little sister (by little I mean younger than me)!
4. I trained for the Chicago Marathon and ran it on October 9th! It wasn't my best race, I finished around 4:10, but I am happy I finished. I had gotten perennial tendonitis the week leading up to the race & I'm still trying to heal it today. This marathon is amazing & we had such great support once again! Thank you to all those volunteers & spectators! They make this race for us runners.
5. I saw Adele in NYC! She was amazing as always and worth every penny! It was our first "girls" trip w/ my mom & sister!
We also had 2 weddings & are about to attend our third for the fall on Saturday!

As far as my running plan, I'm recovering this week and slowly starting to build back the mileage. My next race is Blood Rock 50k outside of Alabama w/ the Fleet Feet Ultra Dirtbags. I won't be racing it as I hope to just have fun in the woods with my friends!! Then I have no set races as of now, so we will see!

My next post will include two new recipes, so stay tuned......
