Birthday Check-in

Life has been crazy with travelling, a family vacation, my first Broad Street Run, the BWC training group, and now my 27th birthday. 

Yep Cinco de Mayo is also a celebration of my day of birth, didn't you know?  It also happens to fortuitously fall on Taco Tuesday. So go eat some guacamole and tacos tonight and think of me!

I swear I'll eventually get all caught up-it just might take a few weeks!

Yesterday my guest post went live on Chrissy's blog Snacking in Sneakers. I shared an easy, no equipment at-home arms and abs workout so please check it out and share!

I enjoyed an amazing dinner at Woodberry Kitchen last night to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday (yes our birthdays are back to back!). Congratulations to the head chef/owner Spike Gjerde for winning at James Beard award in Chicago as we ate dinner!

This is my dessert of espresso and PB Fluff ice cream-amazing! 

I also found out I share a birthday with the amazing marathoner Meb Keflezighi (whose new book Meb for Mortals I just started reading).  Total nerdy runner moment. 


Today I started the morning off with a sweaty spin class at Rev thanks to my friend Deirdre.

I love that my watch gives me birthday wishes.
 I will definitely be ending the day with a margarita (or 3).  Cheers!

  4. Happy Birthday! Woodberry Kitchen is on my list to check out - so many new spots in Baltimore that were not there when I was working in the city.

    1. Thanks :) It was just the ice cream flavor. It was peanut butter ice cream and had chunks of marshmallow fluff (marshmallow creme) in it!

  6. Happy belated Birthday! That ice cream sounds SOOO good. I'm a sucker for marshmallow anything. I was known to eat fluff right out of the big plastic tub! :)
