Miles and Margs!

Thank you SO much for all of your fabulous comments on my last post. I am still in complete and utter shock that I will be running Ragnar in just a couple short months. I am so stinkin excited!!

*************************************************************************

This past weekend, some FABULOUS lady bloggers and I met up in West Seattle for ‘Miles and Margs.’ We were set to run 5 miles (on Cinco de Mayo; how appropriate) and head to Cactus after. Since I needed to get some extra miles in, I headed out an hour early. I didn’t quite leave myself enough time, but I got 4.4 miles in before meeting up with the girls.

Zoe, Nicole, Rebecca, TriGirl, Allison, Erika and I all started running along Alki in the most perfect running conditions. It was BEAUTIFUL out. It was somewhere around 55 degrees and sunny. Perfection.

[Picture shamelessly stolen from Emily… it was too gorgeous not to share!]

I was able to keep up for about a mile or so, but fatigue started to catch up to me and I had to slow down. Rebecca stayed with me and we casually chatted and got our miles in. I got a total of 8.51 miles in along Alki (1.49 shy of how many I needed). It was time to head to Cactus to meet up with some other ladies, so I decided to finish my miles after. That turned out to be a fabulous decision because my last 1.5 margarita fueled miles felt FANTASTIC.

Pensive Pumpkin, Robyn, and Emily met the rest of us at Cactus. We were able to get a huge table right away thanks to Pensive Pumpkin getting there RIGHT when they opened (thanks, girlie!). I immediately ordered a margarita chocolate milk. It was GLORIOUS. It was EXACTLY what my body wanted. THEN, I ordered my marg. 🙂

(All the girls. Emily, Pensive Pumpkin, Robyn, Nicole, Zoe, Allison, Rebecca, Me, TriGirl, & Erika!)

I was SO incredibly excited because a local company called Run Pretty Far heard about our meetup and wanted to share some local runner love by sending us some goodies. I kept it on the down low so that it would be a fun surprise for everyone. Just look at all the goodies they sent!

Everyone got arm sleeves, a headband/bandana, and a sticker that said “Run Long & Eat More Cake.”

I LOVEEE my arm sleeves. I plan on REALLY testing them out this weekend on my long run since it is supposed to start out a little chilly and get HOT. I plan on wearing them to Rock N Roll SD because last year it was so cold at the beginning.

Thanks so much Run Pretty Far! You made a lot of bloggers extremely happy!

We all had such a fabulous time chatting and getting to know each other. We absolutely need to do this more often. I can’t wait for the next one! It will probably be right before RnR Seattle!!
