The Weekend Wrap Up

Ohhh Monday, you can be so rough sometimes.

I have a strict caffeine cut-off point of 3pm. I hardly ever drink caffeine but when I do, it has to be before 3pm or I won't sleep all night.

Well, yesterday, I had caffeine at 2pm and didn't sleep all today is making for a rough start to the week. 

This weekend was wonderful though. 

Friday I went home after work to do some cleaning before meeting up with one of my college roommates and her boyfriend who were in town for the weekend. We met up in Chinatown and then took a stroll around the monuments before I headed home.

Saturday, I woke up early (but not too early) and headed out for my 12 mile run. It was definitely easier than last week's 9 miles but the last 4 miles were pretty tough. My knee was bothering me for the first mile or 2 (my right knee, oddly enough, which is not the knee that I injured) but it seemed to shake itself out and I was fine for the rest of the run and the weekend. 

Post-run, I met up with my also newly engaged friend Laura for brunch. We swapped proposal stories and wedding planning ideas and talked about all of the craziness that has recently consumed our lives.

When she left, Lauren came over to veg by the pool and then drink wine, bake cookies and watch Harry Potter movies for the rest of the night. It was wonderful. 

Sunday, after sleeping in, I headed out for an easy 3 mile shakeout run and then did some weights at the gym before heading to Eastern Market to meet up with Andrea for lunch. We spent a ridiculous amount of time talking tot he EM Cheesemonger and eating ALL THE CHEESE. He is my new favorite person and I plan on visiting him to buy cheese every Sunday or the rest of my life. 

All in all, it was a great weekend! This week is a short week for me (thank goodness!) and I'm excited to tackle Week 3 of marathon training! Training update coming tomorrow!

By the way, those two emails that I posted about on Thursday that I'm eagerly/anxiously awaiting? Still nothing =/


  1. Oh you just reminded me I need to get to Eastern Market ASAP. It has been wayyyy to long!

  2. UGH. I'm waiting on two really important emails as well and it's driving me up a wall! I totally know how you feel. Crossing my fingers for you girl!

  3. Ahh, I'm the same with caffeine. I definitely try not to have any after lunch time or I'll never sleep either!

  4. Wine, cookies and Harry Potter sound like an incredibly wonderful combination.

  5. It feels like you live in DC your whole life. You know so many people!! Love it!
