Summer is over, and I am SAD.
On the train back to real life tonight, Meg was talking about how she was excited for fall, and that it was her favorite season. I am blonde, and I really like Lilly Pulitzer, so I definitely peak in summer.
If we were having coffee date right now, I’d tell you:
I’m really excited and really nervous about the Chicago Marathon. Thankfully this isn’t my first rodeo, so I know I will be able to finish, but I also know that with this compressed training schedule, it won’t be quite as enjoyable (“enjoyable”) as past marathons have been for me. But I trust Jess‘s coaching guidance implicitly, and know that I will be as prepared as I possibly can…
This weekend, I did my 12 miles out in the Hamptons. Our share is in Amagansett, so I ran to East Hampton and back. We’d gone out the night before, so I was proud of myself for getting it in and not pushing it back to early this week instead.
I would also tell you that I am fully obsessed with flash tattoos and now think no beach weekend is complete without them, and yes I know I am the most basic bitch ever, thank you for asking.
I would tell you that I got a ride out there, but am thrilled that I took the train back and didn’t have to deal with traffic. Dinner at Sotto Sopra with half-priced wine and pizza was a fabulous way to wrap up the day/weekend/summer.
I would tell you that after a summer of fun and indulgence, I am so ready to buckle down and eat better this fall. Ashley had a great recent post about saying no to overcommitting and yes to yourself sometimes, and I’m going to try to be really cognizant of that this fall.
I would tell you that even though I spent too much money this weekend, I am currently lusting over, oh, EVERYTHING on sale at J. Crew Factory right now (and 50% off!!!)
Nailed it. ^^
And how was your weekend??
