I’ve always been known as “the fashion girl” among my friends. In high school I was on a style committee at the local mall, in college I was VP of the fashion organization, and in life, I eat, sleep, and breath fashion- which is why I wanted to dedicate this blog to inspiring and learning from others.
Aah! Only 6 days until the Dallas Marathon! I can’t believe that it’s finally here, it felt at some points that I would be training forever. Yesterday I ran my final long run of ten miles. The great news is, my knee was fully functioning and felt pretty good! (Sidetone: I saw a bunch of sailboats and stopped to take pictures.)This run was for confidence, and I definitely gained some after royally messing up my training schedule.
How is it already December? I feel like 2015 just went by without me! I love this season though! The Holiday season is my favorite time of year because I get to see my family and friends that are in Ohio still. Not to mention some major events coming up this month. (The Dallas Marathon and my vacation!) Before I get ahead of myself… I compiled some of my favorite instagrams from November for you here!
Hi Everyone! I am so sorry I am so late with this post! Things have been crazy here with the holiday, traveling, work, and getting my Christmas decorations up! I took a decent break last week and gave my knee a break over the holiday.
Happy Thanksgiving! Today I am thankful for my family, friends, and my pup, Elie, as well as health, happiness and all of you who read my blog! I’m back in Ohio for the holiday, where it’s a fantastic 50 degrees today! My family does a pretty casual Thanksgiving, so I’m not too dressed up, but I do love this little knit dress! I love loose and flowy dresses, and this one is super comfy! I paired it with my Toms high tops since I’ve been wearing more flats lately. I’m trying not to perpetuate any of my running injuries…
The Challenge: Pack 6 days worth of clothes, 2 laptops, my camera, and the contents of my purse in a bag that can be considered a “carry on” by the airline. Why? To avoid paying an extra $80+.
Hi Everyone! I went to the sport doctor last week, and he worked on my leg. My knee basically tracks in the wrong direction when I run, which is caused by weak muscles in my hips and causes all sorts of other issues. I plan to go back until the marathon and hope I can get through it with the problem at least better, if not solved! Today I ran over 6 miles without stopping which is the most I’ve been able to do in a long time, so I’m happy with it. I finished my “long run”/workout on the bike.
As the temperatures drop I have more of an inclination towards comfort and warmth over trends. As an ode to my winter uniform (cozy sweater and skinny jeans) I wore this comfy outfit running errands and Christmas shopping last weekend.
Hi friends! I don’t have much of an update right now. I’m at a bit of a standstill with my training until I visit the doctor this week. I’m struggling with my knee pain and really need a solution before the marathon in a month! I’m hoping the doctor can help get me through this!
