Happy Valentines/2 year Anniversary

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!!

But mainly happy 2 year anniversary to this guy!


Today marks Alex and I’s 2 year anniversary of dating.

February 1st, 2009 – We first started talking

February 7th, 2009 – We actually met and spent the day hanging with my friends at the time.

February 14th, 2009 – This was the next available weekend so we went on our first date. It just so happened to be Valentine’s day. I was so amazing he asked me to be his girlfriend at the end of the date!

We only got to see each other on weekend’s because he lives about 30 minutes away from me and when you hit traffic it turns into over an hour.


We’ve definitely had a great two years and I cannot wait for the many more we spend together. I’ll leave you with some pictures over the years Smile

Unfortunately I am extremely stressed for Valentine’s so Alex and I are having a Valentine’s/Anniversary week.


  • Yesterday: Attempted to find me some nice jeans for my present. (no luck) Valentine’s Dinner at Bella Italia
  • Monday: Build stuffed animals for free at school.
  • Tuesday: Get smoothies together at Smoothie King.
  • Wednesday: Paint a plate
  • Thursday: Take a walk downtown and explore Cape some more
  • Friday: My first indoor meet!! Have the love and support of Alex through my race

Since I couldn’t find jeans here in town, we are going to wait and get them back home whenever we are able to make a trip. But that is my main Valentine’s present.

Have a great day!! Enjoy the nice weather if you have it!


Running, Race and Giveaway

Saturday – Day Before Race


Did an easy 4 miles.

Then Alex and I watched Youth Revolt


Pretty good movie, but I wouldn’t watch it again. Just one of those one time views was pretty good but not worth buying.

Sunday – 4th of July – Race Day


Big River Running Company has a mile downhill race called the Macklind Mile.


Race Outfit:


Gatorade sent me the G-Series earlier in June and I wanted to save it for Race Day.



So before my warmup I had the Prime Pre-Game Fuel.


Alex and I agreed it kind of tasted like Liquid Orange Jello. Wasn’t awful but drinking from the pouch was kind of odd.





Wished I would’ve turned my laps onto 1/4’s and not miles. Then I could’ve got my 1/4 splits.


Here’s my timing chart from my Garmin.

After the race I recovered with the Perform since I still had more to run.


Of course it was good because it’s the regular gatorade 🙂

Cooldown/Training Run After:


When I got back I had the Recover Drink


Absolutely awful. I took two sips and the only way I can describe it is “taste’s like cough syrup” Alex also couldn’t even drink it and he even diluted it with some water to take out the strength of it. Still not good.

So overall impression: Wasn’t impressed and won’t be purchasing the series.

However, that was just mine and Alex’s opinion and everyone has different taste buds, so I’m giving YOU a chance for some Gatorade products that were also sent with the series!!

You can win:

One Gatorade TShirt – Size Large
One Gatorade USB stick – 512mb
