Sunday Links and Productivity! 4.24.16

FIRST OF ALL, WE ARE LESS THAN ONE MONTH AWAY FROM OUR MARATHON. I can’t believe how fast this training has gone! Our 20 mile run is next weekend already! AHH! πŸ™‚ I’m not gonna lie, I’m excited it’s getting closer, because running and sleeping is probably 2/3 of my life. Which isn’t bad, but it’s a lot. And I’m ready for the big day! πŸ™‚

This has been such a productive and fun week and weekend! We have been cooking a ton as always, running a ton as always, cleaning a lot this week (whyyyy do we go through so much laundry??) and this weekend, we have done a ton of errands! We grocery shopped, have been dog-sitting my dad’s dog GUSSA all weekend, and have generally organized and cleaned around the apartment too πŸ™‚ What a great way to spend our time together this weekend πŸ™‚ It’s just the best feeling to be productive and yet have fun together!

Having Gus over has been SO MUCH FUN. Needless to say, we are both addicted to petting and playing with him, and are probably both his #1 fans (in addition to, um, the rest of the world!). He is so loving and playful and LOVES walking around meeting other dogs and smelling new smells in our neighborhood πŸ™‚ OH, and climbing up on my couch, thinking he’s a lap dog πŸ™‚image

Yesterday morning was a “lighter” long run for us – only 12 miles. It’s crazy we can say “only” before a double digit mile run. Next weekend we have 20, and last weekend we had 19, so you get my point πŸ˜‰ Another gorgeous morning it was for us, and we grabbed Gus on his leash to finish the last mile or so with us, aka, it was a slow and hilarious time together πŸ™‚ He just loves being outside and with us, even if it means running (which he pretty much haaaates for more than 1/2 mile!).

And of course, we had to get frozen yogurt. As we always do Saturday nights πŸ™‚ MY FAVORITE TRADITION πŸ™‚ ❀

I’m also going to note in here that we toured a few apartments this weekend… and I THINK WE FOUND THE PLACE πŸ™‚ Stay tuned… I’ll post more about it when we know for sure what our next step is πŸ˜€ I AM SO EXCITED!

I’ve been partaking in my favorite yoga challenges. πŸ™‚ Here are some of my faves from the last few days! (especially the one with Gus in it haha!)
