Last Song on the iPod:
Bruno Mars Locked out of Heaven
It was supposed to be a 4 mile run last night butttt I decided against it. I was tired, my body was tired and in favor of a crazy circuit workout this morning at 6am, I said heck with it and decided to not run. I’ll be running Friday and Saturday instead!
Spaghetti and Meatballssss. I’ll never get sick of that for a meal, so glad there’s leftovers for lunch!
(Last) New Show I Love
Did I ever tell you how much I love Netflix? Well, I do. I have found so many awesome shows on there. My new one is Once Upon a Time, I’m loving it. It’s so clever, and lots of characters with crazy stories and twists. If you don’t know it’s about a town where all the characters are from Fairy Tales but living in modern times and they don’t KNOW they are a fairy tale character. It’s really interesting. Do watch 🙂
Lately I’ve been obsessed with Cinnamon Toast. I love it so much. I really have to stop myself from eating like 5 slices at a time. Life is hard.

My sweeties snuggled up in my bed. They don’t like to share with me. Rude.
- What’s on your Last Things Thursday List? Any new shows…music?
Another Last Things Thursday!
Last Song on my iPod
Apparently I stopped running to this! (Belieber!)
3 miles was on my training plan, so 3 miles it was! But a little bit different- meet my new running buddy!
Riley ran his first 3 miles with me and it went very well. I never took him far but he trotted right beside me the whole time (lucky 4 legs!) it only got a little out of control the one time he saw a squirrel… And my left arm was so fatigued! However, my pace was great!
Last Book (Started)
So a coworker of mine was talking about an interesting book and brought it in for me to borrow. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is a TRUE story about a woman who died of cancer in the 1950s who had her cells harvested. Her cells never died. Those of you who have studied biology or are interested in it might have heard a lot about her cells, called HeLa. From her cells we now have many vaccines, such as the polio vaccine, influenza and many many more. It looks into ethics of scientific research and the family of Lacks. I’m looking forward to getting into. Very interesting to think that this woman’s cells are STILL around! (and have saved us all!) I’ll let you know how it goes, maybe some of you will like it too.
Purple with sparklesssss 🙂
- What are some of you last things this Thursday?
Hi everyone! It’s time for:
(I’ve been a little pic monkey obsessed!)
Last Song on the iPod
One of my favorites to run to!
Last Sweet Treat
Reese’s Cups of course. We still have bags leftover from the holidays. 2 go in my lunch bag everyday for work!
3 miles on the schedule for training so that’s what happened. It was freezing. Seconds thought about training for a half in the dead of winter… JK but seriously. My legs were stiff and frozen! Not my best but it is what it is 🙂
Last Meal Out
Drew and I went to Panera on NYE Day and we both got delish big kid grilled cheese and soup!
Last Thing I Did
Before I went to bed I got in the hot tub! I’m so thankful that my parents have this cause my legs were super sore!
- What are some of your last things?
Hi everyone! I hope you had a great Christmas! My Christmas was awesome and I got to spend a lot of time with family that I don’t get to see too often. We also got snowed in an extra day and that actually turned out to be great because we got extra time to relax and hang out.
This last things Thursday coming at you Holiday Style!
1. Last Workout
My dad and I were able to go to the YMCA since we belong to our one at home and they have a ‘Y away from Home’ program; meaning gym fo’ FREE! The day before, on Christmas, my dad and I went for a great run, in his super hilly hometown. Much hillier than I’m used to- but it was a really good run.
2. Last New Toy
Well if you follow me on Instagram you may know my new toy which I LOVE:
I got the Garmin Forerunner 10! This thing was awesome to take a run with. I like my Nike App but it could be spotty and also I don’t always want to listen to music on my runs. Mostly for safety reasons and the fact that lots of time I’m on back roads. (And maybe the time I was chased by 4 different dogs of different running routes…ugh).
3. Sweet Treats
Well not that this is even all of it. Most if my diet was sweet treats haha. Not complaining! These are just some of the cookies…
4. New running clothes. Run to Oiselle and order their clothes to get you through the rest of the winter and early spring running season! Seriously they are flattering and so functional. thumb holes! Pockets galore!
I got a stripey top..
And run delicious and clearly vest. The run delicious is so cute and has a nice pocket on the side. I also could totally get away with wearing this to work. The clearly vest is fun and has pockets galore. I can also wear it for running or the bike, WIN!
5. Book read
I just started to read Chrissie Wellingtons memoir which is really good to hear about her story to hear about her journey to Ironmans. The fact that she didn’t ever really intend to be one blows my mind. She accidentally ran a 3:00 London Marathon and realized she was good at endurance sports… Couple years later she was World Ironman Champion! She also had a very, very long struggle with an eating disorder which was interesting to hear about. I recommend it 🙂
6. The weather… Snowy!
Hi everyone! This post will be short and sweet mostly because I’m exhausted… The earliest I’ve been home this week has been 8:30 and the latest 9:30. Sorry for the lack of posts but you know- life happens! Also the kids at school have had trick-or-treating and parades all week and you can imagine how wild 5-8 year olds get after that. Seriously, it’s been crazy! So. Much. Candy!
Workouts this week:
I have another 5k this Saturday right in my hometown which I’m pretty excited about. Since I’ve been out so late I’ve been working out at night after my shifts instead of waking up early. I’ve done a lot more running and even some intervals/hill training on the treadmill! (which almost NEVER happens!) I hope to get a better time this week 🙂 My other workouts have included…. TRAINER RIDES!!! That’s right- my very own indoor trainer!!
My bike is all set up in my basement …literally right in front of the TV so now in the dead of the bitterly cold PA winter I can still be on my bike! I’m so excited. The trainer was acually my birthday present from Drew! (I hinted about it for like 4 months 😉 ) This trainer is super nice and he got it from nashbar.com if interested. Drew said it is nicer than the one he has AND it was cheaper because Nashbar has amazing deal! Somehow I feel like I may want to hide it from him 🙂
The best way to enjoy (well..kinda) staying on the trainer is to watch some DVR..
Obsessed with Country Music!
Joining the blogging trend, these pumpkin bagels are the BEST!
Treat This Week
It’s been unbelievably warm this week. Like almost 80 degrees! Iced dunkin donut coffee was necessary!
