The Week That Was: May 19 - May 25

I'm going to keep this weeks round up short and sweet, because that's how it went. 

I only did two runs this week. For a few reasons. The first being, I was out of town for a wedding for one of my oldest and dearest friends. 

The second being an awful blister that developed after my run on Tuesday. It has come back twice and it hurts very badly. 

So, I ran on Tuesday and I ran on Friday. A total of 14 miles. 

I also explored around the Lehigh Valley for a while on Saturday and found the Emmaus Run Inn. I was having the worst time trying to relace my shoes. The NICEST kid helped me out! 

I also drove by Rodale, which is the publishing company for Runners World. I never realized how close it was to my grandparents old home! I also knew I got there because people were out on a Runch! 

The wedding was beautiful. The newlyweds are packing up and leaving for Arizona on Monday to start their new lives. I am so proud of my friend Eric. His wife is his perfect match! They are going to do amazing things! Plus, I got to take new pictures with my best friends! The last time we all had nice pictures taken, I had braces on! 

So, this week was more about life and not as much running. Sometimes, you need weeks like this. I realized I will not hit 100 miles this month, and I am okay with that. I'm just trying to enjoy the ride right now. 

How are you spending your Memorial Day weekend? Do you have a race planned? 


  1. Blisters are the worst! I'm spending my Memorial Day weekend catching up on my blog, (5 Liebster Award nominations) and running:)
    I nominated you for a Liebster Award. Check it out here:

  2. I pretty much spent my week like you, took off some running and had a wedding to attend
