My Marathon Weekend

Happy Monday my lovelies! Another weekend has come and gone and Monday has snuck up far too quickly! This weekend was definitely an epic one for me. I accomplished something that I have never done before, met a goal and persevered through tough conditions. It was a weekend that I will never forget because I ran my first marathon. I really did it! After the race yesterday, the last thing I wanted to do was upload and edit pictures, so today you will get some iPhone captures and tomorrow will be a recap of race day. So make sure y'all come back now!

So here's how my weekend went:

On Friday I:

  • Played with my pup
  • Went to dinner at Pappa's Seafood with the hubs for some grilled shrimp and pasta to carb-o-load! Hubs is on nights so it was nice to see him for a little bit during the week!
  • Watched Pitch Perfect and fell asleep on the couch {I'm exciting, I know}

On Saturday I:
  • Had a lazy morning, enjoyed my coffee and made waffles for the hubs!
  • Went to the Memorial Hermann Expo for the marathon & half marathon, got our race bibs, lots of free samples and even checked out the finish line!
  • Met up with the hubs parents and Poppi {his grandma} for an easy lunch at Cafe Express
  • Watched football with the hubs and in-laws
  • Went to a delish Italian dinner at Ninos

On Sunday I:

  • Woke up really early to head to George R. Brown Convention Center
  • Ran a marathon {no big deal}
  • Attempted to walk around the expo to gather snacks and drinks
  • Attempted to walk to our car. {Walking was NOT easy y'all!}
  • Sat around for a while while my in-laws, daddy and sister took care of me
  • Went to Kung Fu {a bar} to watch the Texans with a bunch of friends who also ran the marathon or half
  • Fell asleep on the couch...again

Clockwise from top left:
