My original plan for this weekend was to wake up bright and early on Saturday and drive 7 hours to my dad’s to start my vacation. On Thursday I had an “eff this” moment and decided I wanted to start my vacation on Friday. Sure, it meant driving 7 hours in the evening after work, but to gain an extra day of relaxation?!
And then I forgot to publish on Saturday. Oh well – here it is on Sunday!
Having to line up a new place to live took away from my vacation budget a tad, but I’m determined to truly enjoy my 10 days away and the few days celebrating Stampede with Lexie.
I plan on filling my days with casual runs and time spent on the sand – a must for any vacation!!

Why I’ll Never Eat Another Quest Bar via The Blonder Side of Life <– I’ve never eaten a Quest bar. I don’t plan on ever eating a Quest bar. I wouldn’t call myself the healthiest person around, but when it comes to food, if I want junk I’m going to eat the real thing. A cinnamon bun, not some chemical bar made to kind of resemble a cinnamon bun.
. why I won’t be working for a bikini body this summer . via Running with Spoons <– WHY do we feel we NEED to workout to be acceptable to be seen in a bathing suit. Just, why?! So thank you, Amanda, this is awesome. I, too, have put on a few pounds over the winter. I’m heading to the beach as soon as humanly possible (since I’m driving that way right now) so what I’m going to do is slather on some sunscreen, put on my bathing suit and go to the beach. The. Freaking. End.
