Prepping for Friday’s Long Run

I have been so busy, I almost forgot that I have a 16.0 mile run on the marathon training plan tomorrow!! YIKES!

Can you believe I’m already at 16.0 miles?!?! I cannot.


I spent the afternoon on campus, which meant packing snacks to keep me going.

Apple slices:


Protein Bar:


I didn’t plan on being on campus as long as I did, so when I got home I was STARVING! Dinner was the last third of my mellow mushroom mega-veggie pizza. Not as good 5 days later, but I ate every last bite.


Can you tell I’m breaking into the Halloween party candy stash? 😉

I need to get to bed, Friday’s are officially my long run days!

If you have been wondering why Caitlin and I have been meeting on Friday’s to do our long runs instead of Saturday or Sunday, it’s honestly because it fits best into our schedules! I have Friday’s off school, and since JasoNerd (the boyfriend) works Mon-Sat, I like to have Sunday’s to spend with him!

When I trained for my first half marathon with BFF Debbie in 2007, we did our long runs on Tuesdays!!

As long as you get them in, and space them about a week apart (give or take a day) it really doesn’t matter!


In other news…

My sister, Brielle, is AWESOME at doing hair. A few people asked why she is able to visit for 3 weeks, and it’s because she just graduated high school in May, and starts hair school in January!

She trims my hair (I really don’t do anything to my hair other than cut it) and I love it! She colors her friends hair, cuts, etc.

This morning she braided my hair to keep my shortest layers out of my face. I think she called it the “Lauren Conrad Braid”.


She’s considering starting her own blog about hair/fashion/makeup stuff, and I think she should do it!

But then, I’m biased because I love her!

Who thinks Brielle should start a blog? ME!!

  1. I vote Brielle starts a blog! I also vote she comes up to Gainesville and fixes my hair. 😀 I’m in a huge hair funk. :/

  2. A hair/makeup blog from someone in school learning it would be great! People would be so fascinated – I definitely would. Your braid looks great, I want one.

  3. I vote yet! Maybe I could then learn how to do my hair, because I pretty much do the same thing every day 😉

  4. oh god i would LOVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVE a hair blog!!!! start one, brielle!

  8. I miss our long runs on Tuesdays!! Those were the days!! And I also vote that Brielle should start a blog 🙂

  9. Haha I have had way too many purchased-for-trick-or-treaters reeses today!

    And yes, sister should definitely start a blog! I want mine too, also… but her suggestion for a blog topic was an alcohol blog… sooooooo… haha

  10. She should definitely start a blog!

    BTW, I wish I had someone to braid my hair like that…I love wearing my hair in braids for sports and it would be great for running.

  11. Good luck on your long run tomorrow! I’m doing my first 19 miler this Saturday and I know what you mean… seems like yesterday when I was “only” doing 10 milers.
    Enjoy your run!

  12. Best of luck to you on your run!

  13. I’d check it out, for sure. I’m bad with hair, so if she could give me tips on easy hairstyle, etc. It would be a winner in my book!

  14. I have a really boring haircut and I never do anything with it so YEAH BRIELLE keep the info coming! 🙂

  15. LOL it so IS the Lauren Conrad braid! I’ve always wanted to know how to do that to my hair…it never works out.

    Good luck tomorrow!!

  16. Good luck tomorrow hun! I’ll be sending you postive thoughts for the whole 16 miles!!!

    Wow, she is crazy good at hair!! I would tell her ABSOLUTELY go for the blog. She will love it and it would be such a perfect outlet for her to pour out some of this passion of hers. 🙂

  17. She needs to start a blog! My hair is always either straight down or up in a ponytail and I could use some inspiration.

    Your hair looks awesome!! Enjoy the run 🙂

  18. A hair/makeup blog would be so cool! She should totally do it! She could get some freelance work that way.

  19. I hope that your run is going well! I’m assuming that you’re probably out there now.

    And thanks for the push I needed to head to the gym for a run now! I wasn’t too psyched about it but knowing that you’re doing 16 miles when I just need to get 3-5 miles in put things into perspective for me. 🙂

    And Brielle should definitely start a blog! Fun idea!

  20. i do that to my hair when i get out of the shower and dont feel like blow drying/straightening! lol but her braid looks much much cleaner/nicer than mine usually turns out!

    she should definitely start a blog! 🙂

  21. I would LOVE to read her blog! Cute hair style, btw.

  22. i vote yes, i would totally read your sissy’s blog! 🙂

    love the hair!

  23. LOVE the hair…I definitely think she should start one! 🙂

    And 16 miles?!?!?! WOW! Good luck!

  24. I’d love to know how to do a braid like that! I have short layers too and always pin them back!

  25. I would love her to start a blog, with some tutorials. I love wearing braids, but I suck at making them 🙂

  26. looks great! i love doing hair too!

  27. She should totally start a hair blog. Your hair looks so cute!

  28. I LOVE the hair, your sis did a GREAT job. She should definetly start a blog and let us know when she does.

  29. Whoa! 16 miles, that’s craziness!! But a goodd kind of craziness lol. Your hair looks super-cute! That’s how Allison Sweeney had her hair the other night on biggest loser 🙂 Oh my gah…I just realized how dorky I sound

  30. Super cute LC braid! Brielle is awesome and should definitely blog! 🙂

    I wish I had a sister who could braid my hair. Awww. Sometimes I ask my mom but I don’t think she gets the current LC braid trend!

  31. Love the hair. Great for running!

  32. I suck at doing my own hair. I vote that your sister starts up a blog too! I’d totally subscribe. Also, congrats on this morning’s 16 mile run. Holy smokes.
