Weekend Update: CLE Marathon Weekend

Whew that weekend flew by. A few days of running, working, meeting up with my old race friends and some semi-cruddy weather made the weekend go by pretty fast. I’ll be putting together a full race recap, but in the meantime, here is my weekend – one sentence per photo style.

Friday afternoon, hitting up the Race Expo with Cari!

I picked up some new Sparkly Soul headbands.

Friday night was the VIP Ambassador Race Reception, so B and I got a little dressed up and hung out with fellow Cleveland Marathon Race Ambassadors!

A little carbo loading before the race.

Saturday morning was the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon 5k.

Then to the movies.

Sunday morning we woke up to COLD and SNOW!

Not typical May running weather (and colder than our December weather) but we made it to the start just as the race began.Screenshot_20160515-134232

Oh and it was SNOWING during the run – can you see the flakes on my jacket?

B snapped a few photos of during the run – easy to spot me in the bright yellow jacket.20160515_081049

I felt good when we finished!

Partially thanks some great fans cheering us on.

Three medals, two races for completing the Challenge Series!

After warming up, a post-run brunch of egg whites and pancakes was in order.

Spent the afternoon being semi-productive and working, shopping at Target, doing laundry and watching movies (ok I watched part of The Duff – I suck at watching TV for more than an hour at a time).

And a little banana bread baking!

We had the ultimate comfort food dinner at B’s parents house – spaghetti and meatballs!

And that about sums up my weekend, one-sentence-per-photo style.

Some questions for you:

  • When was the last time you ran a race?
  • Sweet or savory for brunch? I’m usually a savory-all-the-way bruncher, but while being pregnant I have to have both! I never would’ve ordered pancakes 35 or so weeks ago 🙂

I’m linking up today with ErinKatie and the weekly wraps.

AND PS – Happy Anniversary to my MOM and DAD! ❤ So excited to see them this weekend 🙂

  1. Congrats on your race. I can’t believe you had snow, go figure! That banana bread looks sooo delicious!

  2. I adore the race bibs pinned over the baby bump. You rock, mama! It’s hard to imagine snow from where I sit. I look forward to your recap of the races. Great medals too! Your banana bread loves heavenly. Are those white chocolate chips on top? Peanut butter? You’ve got to be getting close to your due date. How exciting! Thanks for linking with us Melissa.
