Follow my journey from being overweight and addicted to ice cream, to running marathon's!

Eyelashes, froyo, and a great run

Happy Friday!
This has been a super busy week, I'm glad it's almost the weekend.

The only running I've done was 9.2 miles on Saturday. I took it nice and easy, and really enjoyed it. Lately all of my long runs have been races, and then I have races the next 2 weekends, so I just wanted to slow down and enjoy this run.
 I started out in the park I always run at, but instead of turning around at my usual turnaround, I kept going for a few more miles. I am so glad I did! There were some beautiful sights and I found a new (to me) park that I can't wait to run in again.

Monday night a few of us took my Mom out for Mother's Day dinner.

L-R My sis in law, and brother. (Baby due in June) My nephew and oldest sister, me, Momma, my niece (twinnie's daughter), and my youngest brother.

I went to Ulta for the first time. I could easily spend $1k there, and love every second of it.
Running clothes and makeup, that's all I need to be happy. Well, and ice cream.
I found a girl who loves makeup and eyelashes as much as I do. I'm 20 years older than her, but I'm pretty sure if I had a daughter, it would be her. We are the same. (She may be my daughter in law someday, ya never know) She even loves ice cream/froyo almost as much as I do.

Tomorrow I'm running the Horsepatty half marathon. Remember, the one with only 2 participants last year? Yea, that one.
 I actually know 2 people doing the full, so I'll be able to run my half with them. (The full starts at 8, the half starts at 10)
 It's supposed to be rainy and cold- of course! But this is a race I've never ran, it's 2 hours away, so it'll all be new to me. I love running in places I've never been, or even ever heard of!

Have a lovely weekend, my friends!


  1. Have a great race. Fingers crossed you get a break with the rain though. geez.
    That's strange the half starts 2 hours later...
    I'm afraid to go in one of those make up stores because I know it will create a monster that doesn't need to be created.

  2. Have a great run tomorrow. No racing this week for me. Taking it nice and easy and doing around 13-14 miles with my old running group. Happy to be back with them and logging some miles. Hope there are more than 2 participants this year. And I hope the weather holds off for you!!

    1. I'm so glad to see your mileage back up there again! I know that must make you feel good. Thanks girl!

  3. This race sounds awesome. Have fun!

  4. Enjoy your race tomorrow Katie :)

  5. Hope your race went well! Love your family photo, must be so nice coming from a big family!
