Exciting News!!

2  pieces of exciting news actually, and in my opinion (IMO.. that’s a thing right?) they are of equal importance….

ONE

This morning I became a Dunkin Donuts Perks member 🙂 & this LARGE coffee was freeeeee!  Which is slightly dangerous because who needs that much caffeine in such a short amount of time…..

But, it was free, so I feel good about it.  I think that officially makes me a rewards member at 5 too many coffee shops.  Did I ever mention, I love coffee? No? Okay, well I do. FUN FACT!

I have officially signed up for the Philly Marathon on November 20, 2016!!!!  This is me signing up while eating precisely half of an angel food cake– another fun fact, a whole cake is only 600 calories, so that makes half only 300 calories, WHICH is pretty much equal to one slice of real cake HENCEFORTH I only had one slice of cake #Logic.

I have never run a marathon before, let alone consider myself a runner; however, I signed up with one of my best friends, Heather, and we will be training && running through the finish line together so I am thrilled for the experience!  If anyone has any tips, or is also training for a marathon, let me know! #YouMakeYou together ?

I am actually intrigued to see what this is going to do for my body and mind.   For over 4 years now I have been lifting heavy and doing mostly HIIT/interval cardio training so this is a huge change for me.  This may sound strange but I have a feeling my body will welcome the ‘nice-ness’ of running and not jumping/throwing weights around all the time 😀 WE SHALL SEE, and I will keep you guys updated as training progresses.

Also, do you know what is crazy?  A little of a year ago, I was told that for the sake of my head, neck, and back I could never run.  HA take that post concussion syndrome (you can read my entire story on my homepage!).

26.2 MILES HERE WE COME.

 

           That is all for now, just wanted to update you!

ALWAYS REMEMBER: YOUMAKEYOU
