Racing Away


4 Miles in 35:49 [8:57 per mile]

nice easy run before our race in Carbondale, IL


1.08 warmup

3.1 race – 21:45

Yes a 30 second PR. Have you ever ran a race where you PR’d but you weren’t happy with the way you raced? That would be me.

Hopefully next week when we go to Louisville (one of the biggest meets we will go to) it’ll be a better race and a better time.

.95 cooldown


We ate at Quatro’s Pizza afterwards because everyone said it was the place to go in Carbondale. Deep Dish Pizza and it was incredible!


I’’m going to try to post more often, but I am incredibly busy this year with the team. I’m not just a loser sitting in my room all the time haha. I have practice 2 times a day, class until the afternoon, studying and homework each night and hanging out with the team. So I promise I’m not quitting the blog, I just will blog when I have the time.

I haven’t taken pictures lately of my food because I just got into “I don’t want to blog” this week phase.

But here are some that I have taken.

You know, everyday I think about how much I want to live in apartment, mainly so I can cook my own food. It normally goes like this:

If the cafeteria has nothing good to eat – eat pizza, it’s always good.

Therefore I end up eating pizza a lot. 🙁


This week Alex and I went to Red Lobster (I’ve never been before) and it was incredible! I ordered the Shrimp Fettuccini and it was so delicious I ate it all. I would say though that for the portion size it was not worth the money. I got a half order and there was about 10 bites if that for 11.99.


Oh Big Brother!

When I did my Erio’s post I totally forgot to show you my picture of my tortellini! I forgot to add it because I forgot I took a picture!


hah forgive my forgetfulness and bad blogging skills! Doesn’t it look delicious?

moving on to today


Ran at 10am so it was really hot and humid with the sun bright. If the sun wasn’t out it would’ve been gorgeous!!

Run: 2.53 Miles in 20:18 [8:01 per mile]

splits went as follows

4:02 @ 7:41 pace



Breakfast was in liquid form hah. Gotta love chocolate milk for recovery after a run! So refreshing.



My brother’s in town and wanted St Louis Bread Company/Panera for lunch so I went with him and we got it to go since Dad wanted to stay at home. So I got french onion soup for lunch. I ate it all…almost!

We watched Big Brother US while eating lunch. I LOVE BRITNEY hahaha she is so funny. Her interpretation of Brendan had me laughing.


Go to 1:16 in the video!! You’ll see what I’m talking about!! She’s so funny. (if viewing in reader, there’s a video here and you’ll have to come to my blog to see it)




Blue Bunny Vanilla Storm ice cream. Probably the best ice cream ever.

Ate this while watching


Totally never thought Toby was really bad. But he does creep me out a bit at times.

hah this show is so addicting and intense. If you aren’t watching it, then you are crazy. Just because it’s good suspense. And fills 45 minutes of my day.


Went to Pink because they are having a deal that if you buy a Pink product you can get a laptop case for $5 and I need one since I’ll be travelling with the team at school. Also I had a free coupon for some lotion with a pink purchase and a $10 off $50 coupon! So here’s what I got!


Most expensive item but it was my “I need to hit 50 dollars to use my coupon. So I don’t feel bad spending 22 for this shirt when really it’ll be 12 with 10 off” and come on it’s my school colors!! 🙂


Summery pants, they have beachballs and ice cream cones and you know how much I love ice cream!
18.99 marked down from 32.

back and front of pants.
also 18.99 marked down from 32


The cute laptop case! My laptop just barely fits in it, which is okay I guess haha I was hoping it’d fit better but my laptop is wider than most.


free lotion except it is 2.5 fl oz not 6.7. Smells pretty good.

So I got all of that for $60! Yeah I know that shirt put me a lot over, but it’s worth it. They don’t really sell much for under $10  dollars except underwear and I don’t need that. I also didn’t know how much tax would be, but I like my shirt!!



Obviously an after shot. I don’t normally sweat so much BEFORE a run haha!


Ran again at 8pm. It was hotter than this morning at 10, but felt a lot better since the sun was gone. About 98 degrees out.

Run: 3.5 Miles in 28:29 [8:08 per mile]


.5 – 3:53

bit of some negative splits there.



Powerade because I’m saving the Gatorade mix for school.


Put them zensah sleeves on right when I got back! Can you tell by my vein-y feet post run.

 That’s all folks!

Don’t forget about my Luna Bars, Sport Beans and Raw Revolution bar giveaway!
