July Recap

Happy August everyone! While part of me wants to be one of those, "It's August?! Where did the summer go?!" type-people, I've actually felt like this month just dragged on slowly by, but in a good way! It's been a great month - busy, but fun! I was all over the place: Long Island, New Jersey, Philadelphia, New York, DC, Atlanta...just about everywhere in the northeast, and it's been fun!

So for those of you who are new here, each month, I put up a recap of how I've done with the 25 Before 25 list! So, here goes July's recap! This month, I:

  • Bounced back from my first running injury and have just completed Week 3 of Base Training for the Philadelphia Marathon! 2 more weeks to go and then I start my full training cycle! (#1)
  • Have kept up with my blog (despite a one week, unintentional hiatus), won my first blog giveaway, have met some great people through Blogger, and am just shy of 200 followers! (#7)
  • Started my Summer Reading requirements for my Masters program which I start next month! (#8)
  • Visited 2 new ballparks: Nationals Park, home of the Washington Nationals and Turner Field, home of the Atlanta Braves! (#9)
  • Read 1 more book off The Book List! (#14)
  • Watched 2 more movies off The Movie List! (#15)
  • Cooked 5 more recipes out of 1 of my cook books! (#17)
  • Picked out the book I want to read in Spanish - haven't started it yet, but picking one was a challenge in itself! (#20)
All in all, I'd say it's been a pretty successful month! Although I'm really slacking on a few things off the list, such as #2) finishing my college scrapbook, #5) reading the Bible (I finally picked one out that I like though!) and #16), building a sandcastle. So those are 3 things I want to get on the board for next month's recap!

And I do have to say, thanks to all of you for supporting my journey! It's been a lot of fun working towards these 25 and I don't think I'd be nearly as motivated if it weren't for all of you! So thank you, thank you, thank you! This week, I'm heading to Chicago and Milwaukee for some more baseball games! And when I get back, look out for a giveaway I'll be posting!

Oh! And another thank you for all your prayers about my apartment search! I found an amazing apartment in Manhattan and I move in tomorrow! I'll post pictures when it's all decorated (probably in a few weeks), along with my crazy, weird, coincidental, freaky story about finding the place!

There's only 1 day left of the weekend and 1 month left of summer, make the most of it!


  1. Awhh yay apartment!!! Moving & decorating although a pain are really fun!!! Glad everything went well & that you are excited for August<3

  2. happy august! excited to see pics of your new apartment!

  3. You are doing awesome! It's great to see you are still plugging away. Congrats on finding an apartment. I can't wait to see pictures of what you do with the place to make it home.

  4. Such a productive summer for you! I am so glad the training is going well - I definitely understand how frustrating an injury can be, and I am so happy that you have bounced back!

    And I am dying to see pics of the new place! Congrats!

    See you this weekend? YEAH!
