Well, here we are – marathon weekend! Stay tuned on my Instagram, Facebook, & Twitter accounts for a weekend filled with fun and excitement in good ol ‘Nawlins!

The only thing I’m worried about for the weekend is the weather forecast. It’s changed many times over the past few days, and I’ve yet to see a chance of rain less than 50%. There’s nothing I can do to change it so I’m going to go out and make the best of what’s handed to me. As long as I finish upright and with a smile on my face, that’s all that matters.

By the way, did you hear that Deena Kastor is running the Rock n Roll NOLA Half Marathon? I had the honor of watching her compete in the Marathon Olympic Trials of 2012 in Houston, Tx and I can’t wait to share (part of) the New Orleans race course with her!

Speaking of the race, here’s my outfit…

Rock n Roll NOLA Outfit

I’m wearing a Sparkle Skirt and it’s a beautiful purple – perfect for rocking the streets of New Orleans!

Rumble Roller

The crazy “sneaux storm” also allowed me to spend plenty of quality time with my friend the Rumble Roller. I say “friend” lightly – we are still learning to like each other.

King Cake

Did someone say friends? Cause this King Cake and I made fast friends on Wednesday. It was still warm and fresh from the bakery. Mmhmmm mmhmm good! :0)

Last Training Run Before Marathon

Madalynn and I were becoming quite stir crazy, so we headed outdoors for a 2 mile run on Wednesday. The amount of treadmill running I had to do over the past week was making me craaazy and I couldn’t wait to run outside again! We both enjoyed my last run before the marathon!

Finally, I leave you with my latest favorite…

Disney Luxe Pajamas

Disney Luxe Collection sleepwear from Dillards. I am obsessed with pajamas and when I saw (and felt) these, I immediately fell in love! I purchased a pair after Christmas and couldn’t help myself when I came across these yesterday! Can’t wait to wear them! :0)

What are your weekend plans? What’s your latest favorite thing?

  11. Hope you have fun running the RnR NOLA marathon on Sunday! I'll be running at the Surf City USA Half Marathon Sunday morning right along Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach (AKA Surf City USA). It should be fun. I have no idea how well I'll do. A half marathon three weeks after a full marathon sounded good when I signed up. Can't wait to get my surf board finishers medal!

    Have a great race!
