This weekend was an absolute blast.

On Friday morning, Richard and I flew up to PA (and brought the rain with us) to stay with my friend Tammie so that we could all run in the Wildwood Half Marathon in NJ. We got to meet some of Tammie’s friends, eat delicious food (um, salted caramel fudge, anyone?), drink tasty beers (oh right, and margaritas!), and then run all the food and drink off on Sunday!

Okay, maybe not all of the food and drink.

I gained 3 pounds.

How exactly does one gain weight on a half marathon trip?

Oh right, the fudge.

While typing the word “fudge”, I accidently typed the word “fridge”. Which is the exact location of the leftover salted caramel fudge. HELP.

Here’s a little visual recap of our awesome weekend!

I love this guy.


And I somehow beat my previous half marathon time by TEN MINUTES. Think it had something to do with the course being coastal and almost completely flat? Ha! I feel really good about it, though. I enjoyed every bit of that race.

Thank you again Tammie and Donna for a wonderful weekend — would love for you two to come down in November for the City of Oaks Half!
