From Beach to Blizzard

I can't believe I missed Three Things Thursday! I had so much to write about too that I was worried I wouldn't be able to fit it all into three things...my excuse? I was getting on a plane and leaving this:

for this:

Yea, I'm not happy either kids. On top of it all, I left The Pilot and I'm really sad about it. I'm not quite sure when we're going to see each other again which makes this that much harder, so I'm basically a big box of no fun and will mope around until I get over it. (Not really though, but maybe a little bit)

So, I'm moving on Sunday...again. This will be like my 3rd move in 7 months...I won't get into details about it but I absolutely had to get of my last apartment. It was a nightmarish roommate situation. Hopefully this next apartment will be better. I think it will though. I'm cautiously optimistic and I'll fill you all in about it once I'm all settled.

School starts up again on Tuesday...this semester should be easier than last semester but we'll see. I'm really excited about the classes I'm taking and I'll post about those next week! I also have to go back to work on Monday (blah!) and my internship on Tuesday (yay!). So I'm going from a relaxing Florida vacation to a full throttle New York City lifestyle all over again. Brace yourselves!

Training is going spectacularly! I haven't missed a workout and I've been feeling great! I've been incorporating strength and cross-training, speed workouts and nice easy runs and I'm really enjoying my training. I will break 2:00 at the NYC Half on March 20. I mean, really...if I could come in at 2:00:53 with 2 potty breaks at Diva's, I can definitely break 2 in NY!

I bought an Amazon Kindle! So far, I love it! I was SO against these things for the longest time.  I mean, who wants to read a classic like Pride & Prejudice on an electronic device? And what's wrong with carrying a book around? And what do you do on the plane when you can't have your e-devices on? Trust me, every reason against it, I was arguing it. But then I got my book list for this semester and I realized that Kindle books are up to 50% cheaper than actual text books. Then I thought about traveling all over the city carrying around 5-8 books to class along with my lunch and my gym clothes and everything else and it just made sense. So I did it. I think it's a fantastic item for students. Maybe I will end up occasionally reading a novel for pleasure on it but I will still be a faithful visitor to the library. Best part about it? For selling all my text books back to Amazon, I had a credit to my Amazon account and ended up only paying $14 for it. How awesome is that?

That's all for now! I don't want to leave you with too long of a post on a a Friday! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! My weekend plans consist of:
  • Catching up with Mom
  • Kindle-ing for the first week of classes
  • 8 mile long run on Saturday
  • Moving into the new apartment on Sunday
  • Watching the Jets win their way to the Super Bowl on Sunday!
Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Twin, I have been working out like crazy too, trying to find another half marathon to run, also I am having a horrible roommate situation, read my most recent post!!!!

  2. It's nice to have that awesome break before a period of hard work, but man is it rough getting back into the swing of things! We got back into things right after New Year's and I'm still wondering if January will ever end! Hope the move and catching up/re-starting on life goes well!
