Weekend Update

Happy Monday! It's finally June...my favorite month of the year AND it's a Monday...I secretly love it when the first day of the month falls on the first day of the week!

This weekend felt gloriously long. Friday after work, I met up with a friend at Embrace for a yoga class with Faith Hunter. It was such a great class...one of the best I've taken in a really long time, and afterward I treated myself to a much needed pedicure. I hadn't had one since my wedding!

Saturday was a rest day so I woke up,  made myself some coffee, spent some time reading and did a few things around the house before heading outside to help my landlords decorate for their 2-year-old son's birthday party. I pretty much spent the rest of the day helping them and then at the party itself. Saturday was beautiful and it was so nice to just be outside all day!

As for reading...I'm still reading The Bully Pulpit...this book is seriously a marathon. I'm so determined to finish it this week...mostly because I just don't want to be reading it anymore. 950 pages for nonfiction is a little ridiculous.

I made these!
Sunday morning, my friend Abby came over for a 5 mile run. I felt really good throughout the run. I've been starting to get bored on my runs lately so it was such a welcome change of pace to run with a friend!

Afterward, we went to Matchbox for brunch where we sat outside and saw a Sasha and Malia Obama walking down the street! It was my first sighting of the First Family since moving to DC which was pretty awesome! (Though I was in the same room as Mr. President while volunteering at the UN in grad school once.)

I spent the rest of the day running errands and doing some serious weekend warrior cooking. Of course, after packing lunch for today and tomorrow I realized that I had lunch plans...oh well.
It was a great weekend! It was beautiful out and I finished up another successful week of base training...but more on that tomorrow!

How was your weekend? Did you do a long run? Do you meal prep for the week ahead? It's time consuming but so worth it!

Happy Monday...and Happy June!
