Fitness Friday...February 26th Edition!!!

Hey everyone! I promise I'm still alive!!! Sorry for the lack of blogging this week. I didn't get home from Disney until late Monday night. And this week I've been so busy trying to get back into the swing of things. Princess weekend wore me out y'all! 22.4 miles of running in 3 days is no joke! But I had an absolute blast and can't wait to tell you all about it! I'll be posting my race recaps soon!

Monday was travel home from Disney day. I was sad to leave but so ready to see my hubby and boys! I missed them so much! But I had an amazing time road tripping with Jenny and Katie!!!

And as you can probably guess...our trip home included a Starbucks stop! I got an Espresso Frappuccino Light and it was so very yummy!

Tuesday was a crazy day! It was back to work for me. But it was also a weather alert day here. They were expecting lots of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes. The schools canceled all after school activities since the weather would be coming through late afternoon/evening. But then...around 11:30...the schools decided to dismiss early at 1:00. I had to leave work early to be home in time for the boys to get off the bus. Because of all that the weather really started to concern me. I don't like bad weather at all...especially tornadoes! 

But we were very very blessed! When we were watching the radar there was a clear path through the middle of the storms...and we were in that clear path! We barely got any rain! But in the Pensacola area where my parents live people were not as lucky. My parents were fine but I had friends that lost their house due to a EF-3 tornado. So very sad. 

Wednesday was back to normal. The boys were back at school and Andy and I were back at work. We were feeling very very blessed and thankful that day. I also received a fun package that afternoon from Katie, one of my Princess roomies! She got us all this amazing mermaid mug to celebrate our Princess weekend together! So sweet! I love it! And yes...that's glitter at the bottom y'all!!!

Thursday was another day at work. Then I came home and did lesson plans for next week. I also started packing for Rock 'n' Roll New Orleans this weekend! I leave for New Orleans tomorrow! I'm excited but also a little sad to be leaving my family again. I'm sure I'll have a great time and it will be worth it. But I am missing my family already since I just got home from Princess weekend on Monday night. 

Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I did a lot of running this past week!!! 22.4 miles in Disney on top of my daily runs for my streak!

It was a busy week of running...but so magical and so much fun!!! I'm also very thankful that my legs did so well running so much at Princess Weekend! They got a little sore but the soreness is all gone! 

This weekend is the Rock 'n' Roll New Orleans Half Marathon! I LOVE this race! I'll be running it with Jenny. Since we both have Disney Princess legs we will be running this one for fun! It will be my last half marathon of the season. I won't legs are looking forward to a break in high mileage! If you are running this race and see me...please don't hesitate to come say hi!!! 

I hope you all have a great weekend!!!!

QOTD: What was your best run or workout this week? Anyone else running Rock 'n' Roll New Orleans this weekend?
