Hi there! I'm Emily. I'm a mama, wife, plant-based eater & coffee lover striving to live this beautiful life at my best with whole foods, runs, lattes and love. I like to sit down with a latte and talk about my life in the hopes that others will be inspired, while inspiring me. Thanks for visiting and I'm excited to connect!
It's Friday! And I'm taking a half day at work and then driving to visit my family for the weekend. My husband is at a conference this weekend so he's already left town. I'm getting a pedicure with my Mom this afternoon and then having a family dinner at my parents. My brother and his girlfrend will be there, and my husband is meeting us after his conference - woo!
Then Saturday I'm getting my hair highlighted (I haven't since last July and it's about time for some spring highlights!) Then probably making homemade pasta at my mother-in-laws with my sister-in-law and nephew - carbo load! I bet we'll be playing some cards as well. Then it's time to go to bed kind of early because...
Will that stop me from giving this race my all? Heck no.
I incorporated a bunch of long runs in there. Two weeks ago I ran 10 miles and last Sunday I ran 6 miles. I ran a slow 2 on Thursday and that's that. I had to take 2 weeks off about a month ago, but that's how life goes.
Best of all, the forecast is calling for this:
Basically I just plan on having fun on Sunday. I have no idea how fast I'll run with feeling a little low energy this week and recovering from my sore throat. This will be my 3rd half marathon and I've never run this race. My sister-in-law is running it as well and our family will be cheering (YAY for the support!)
I truly know that adrenaline has the power to take me farther than I would have believed in past races...
1. Just enjoy running!
2. Thrive on the fact that I've made it to race day.
3. Be grateful just to be out there running.
4. Run hard!
Those are my weekend plans. I'll catch up with you on Monday to give you the "how the race went down" chat!
