Dear Target, thank you so so much for having that cute red chevron suit in stock that I've been eyeing online for days. Most of the time when I head into the store to look for suits, it's very picked over. This time, victory is mine!
Dear meal planning, my goodness you made my week amazing. Having all of my meals ready to eat whenever I wanted was beyond nice. That 3 hours I spend doing all the prepping on Monday was 100% worth it. Dear Chicago Marathon, I cannot wait to run in October! It's still a long ways away, but that's okay! I'll still look forward to you. Dear Buxom lipgloss in dolly, I get so many compliments when I wear you, and I love the way you feel on my lips! You'll definitely be a lipgloss I repeat purchase.
Dear Old Navy, you're good. Your clothes right now are really making me want to purchase, and purchase a lot. I'm still holding my trigger finger, but that blue tube dress almost got me.
Dear girls' weekend girls, I cannot wait to play this weekend. Between an expo, dressing up like a princess, going to a Disney park, and running a half, I'm already excited. I've got to admit I feel a little like we're reliving college life whereby cramming too many people into a room and probably staying up a bit later than we should.
me, Meghan, Tori, Genna, and Caitlyn
Dear Mary, I can't believe how much I already feel like I've improved since hiring you to coach me. Your training plans are no joke; I'm working harder now than I did during marathon training, without a doubt. The fact that I'm going to hit around 35 miles this week scares me (in a good way) for what your marathon plan is going to look like. Thanks for the encouragement and for pushing me! Dear everything that was stressing me out this week, good riddance! I'm so glad things all worked out and I can head into this weekend worry free.
Dear readers, I was very bad about responding to comments and emails this week and reading your blogs. I'm going to get back on track next week. With every comment I receive, I read it carefully and smile at the thoughtfulness, advice, and words that you share. I promise that there isn't a single one that I don't appreciate.
And I'd love some advice. I'm looking for a new point and shoot camera. There are two that cnet has good things to say about that are less than $200, but I'd love to hear your thoughts on these two or a suggestion for another.
A couple of random questions for you:
1. What are you looking forward to about this weekend?
2. What is a food you could eat every meal and probably never get sick of?
3. What's your main running goal right now? To get started? To run a mile? To PR a half? To BQ?
