# runs: 12
# rest days: 13
# xtraining workouts: 7
favorite run: the midnight 5k in st george! it was my friend tarmishas 1st 5k and we had a blast driving up for the evening :)
most hardcore run: my usual runner group route about a week and a half ago. it was the first run over 100* and i didn’t drink enough that day to be prepared. but i made it, as slow as it was, ha!
current reads: i finished 2 this month, that hasn’t happened in a really long time, dang grad school.
1.   last night at chateau marimont by lauren weisberger. i downloaded it while in england but didn’t get a chance to really dive in. i finally started and finished, really good! i love her books, such a good author!
2.   fifty shades of grey by e.l. james. yes, you read that correctly, i of all people read this book. with all the buzz and the rumor its turning into a movie i couldn’t resist any longer. i legit finished it in 3-days. i just had to know what happened.
current shame-inducing guilty pleasure: see #2 above! if you didn’t know i am a bit of a prude and was pretty much blushing the entire book. but seriously, good, put it on your list! and by that i mean the 2 that follow it as well, oops.
current obsession: planning. weird i know, i mean graduations, trips, events, days. i just have an odd need to plan things lately. i kind of feel like im planning so i can figure out when the down time is.
current drink: water and sangria hehe. it feels like forever since i could have a drink whenever i had a whim, so i had a glass or 2. delicious!
current song: i wont give up by jason mraz. love :)
current wish-list: new running clothes. it might be time to update my running wardrobe soon, i mean with all my magic money ;)
current need: to make some race decisions for the rest of the summer before nike. i had this great plan to be low-key and do a few 5ks and 10ks while kicking off a new training plan. but some habits die hard and i found myself trolling the ½ marathon race websites lately to find one before then. oh goodness im addicted.
current triumph: i am officially in my 7th class for my grad school program! my finish date is january 5th and i cannot wait to finish. im also finding it hard to believe that i am already 60% done!
current bane of my existence: the return of the summer heat, yuck. we are already under an excessive heat warning. yesterday morning on my way to work it 90* at 1030am, gross!
current goal: keep myself busy. we have some family things kicking into high gear and i need to keep moving so i don’t dwell. this week i have been doing great with it, heres to continuing!
current indulgence: well not at the moment, but this month i did overdue it a little bit with my diet. nothing crazy, but i had fast food more than i should have in a week. or that extra glass of tea sounds so much better than water. the 2nd half of the month has been much better than the 1st couple of weeks.
i went to san genarro fest with tiffany,
oh yeah those are brownies and strawberries!
current excitement: nwm. it is quite far away i know, but i am already scoping out hotels, tours, sights, bay cruises:) i need something to look forward too!
