I run for the champagne

Ahhhh, Monday, how I loathe thee.

This Monday was especially painful because of how tired I was from this crazy weekend.  I swear, I feel like I hardly took a break at all the last 2 days.  So, here is a little recap…

Friday night I just went out to dinner with the hubby because I knew the rest of the weekend was going to be jam-packed.

Saturday morning started off with a trip to the gym.  Since I was going to be running an 8k on Sunday, I took it somewhat easy: 20 minutes elliptical, 10 minutes stair-stepper followed by back/abs strength session.  After the gym, I headed over to Michael’s for this little DIY project that was inspired by my friend, Leslie.

After Michael’s I picked up my race packet and got my teeth whitened, sexy right?

My husband and I got so tired that this had to happen:

Note the straw.  Apparently, according to the teeth whitening people (what else would you have me call them?), we had to avoid pretty much all alcoholic drinks for 3 days but that using a straw makes it okay (thank GOODNESS!!!).

Race day gear ready to go…

Sunday started off like-so:

Soooo many people, holy moly.  I thought it was really cool that the winner of The Biggest Loser 2013 was there.

The actual race could have been better.  I had an unpleasant bout of diarrhea right before the race (too much?) so I was really dehydrated and felt like crap for most of the time.

ImageOverall, for me I did a-okay.

After the race was over, I had a nice little brunch with my friend, Indira (she ran too!) then met up with my husband for some bike riding on the lakefront.  Aaaand then, THIS happened!

What can I say, I run for the champagne!

Money shot:

Random question: If you saw a meetup group in your city named Bitches, Booze and Books, would you consider joining?

  1. Love this Rachel…and LOVE your idea of a meetup group! Go for it! You will LOVE it 🙂

  2. I think the teeth whitening people might be called dentists, unless they are not dentists. And what I want to know is who gets their teeth whitened and then posts a picture of themselves not smiling? And the only way I’d join that group would be if it was literally bitches, not figuratively, like I see getting drunk and either reading to a bunch of female dogs or writing about female dogs.

  3. Hi honey, I’m so proud of u finishing that race esp. feeling like crap.   Cool blog.  I want to see your teeth.   I took your lead and got a groupon for $85.  That’s the cheapest I’ve found so far. Talk to you soon. Much love, Mom
