Hello friends…it’s been a while! It’s already been 6 weeks into the new year…and I have honestly never been busier in my life! Besides travel, work, travel, life, work – I just recently recovered from nasty cold. So, now that I have gained a lil’ bit of time back to have a REAL life, I will catch you up!
Snippets of my 2013:
We had a VERY WHITE Christmas!!! We arrived back to Louisiana after a 2-week Christmas vacation in West Virginia! I had a couple extra vacation days to round out my year…so I ended up with another week off work - Woo-hoo!
I had my first Bar Method class! Sorry folks…by Bar Method I do NOT mean how to score free drinks at the bar! I do, however, mean one of the best sculpting/leaning/stretching workouts I’ve ever done in my life! Detailed post to come soon.
I spent a full Saturday in New Orleans with the bestie…we ditched the scheduled 9K run due to severe stormy weather…but had an awesome day date instead! We decided to try out a local “All-Day Breakfast” joint called Fat Hen Grocery on St. Charles Avenue. We both ordered the Giant Pancake smothered in blueberries and pecans…and it was heavenly! Post HERE.
I traveled to Houston for work – again. Highlights: New running locations found! House of Blues – VIP Style with The Captain Legendary Band! Detailed posts to come soon!
I attended January’s “Restaurant Club” masquerading as a “Book Club” dinner at Bosco’s Italian Cafe in Mandeville. Delish! Best meals of the night: Baked Tortellini & Lasagna.
My hubby and I were Super Bowl Volunteers for the NFL Experience!
New running resolution this year is to maintain a good running base – sign up for a few half marathons – and finish the year with 750 miles! January: I ran just over 50 miles! I didn’t quite reach my goal of 62 miles due to afore-mentioned nasty cold…but I was close!
And last but not least…enter February…and…MARDI GRAS!!!
What are your favorite moments of 2013 so far?
