one lovely blog

last friday (or was it 2 fridays ago? im way behind here.... ) i was nominated by JEN at running with the girls for the "one lovely blog" award. thanks, jen!!

The One Lovely Blog Award is a "pay it forward" kind of way to recognize your favorite blogs.

Here are the rules:

1. Post the award logo and and picture on your blog and link back to the person who nominated you.
2. Tell seven things about yourself.
3. Nominate bloggers who you think deserve the award.

Here are my 7 things -

1. ive never had a peanut butter & jelly sandwich. i know, i know. ive tried jelly once (on an english muffin about two years ago)... ew, gross. ive probably had about 6,943 peanut butter sandwiches in my life (or probably more like in the past 5 years), but never a real american peanut butter & jelly sandwich. yes, im aware thats not normal. (this should not surprise many of you that have actually met me)

2. i actually went back to the chiropractor last week (this was one of my june goals!), and he told me my ass wasnt strong enough, hence the hamstring/groin issue. lovely. squats and clamshells for the next 5 weeks.

3. pinterest has again sucked me back in after a short leave of absence. i even made one of the recipes last week (forgot the whole spicy red pepper flakes though, still came out delish) and have plans to buy a new purse i found on there! i figure if im gonna be on there twenty three two hours a day, i might as well make it useful to my life.

4. i still struggle with the "toilet paper rolls over the roll" issue. everyone needs to understand thats the only way it goes. if you think it goes under, youre wrong.

5. back in december i wrote all about how i was so "A-ok" with my "no marathons in 2012" decision. and then i changed my mind. and now that im less than 6 weeks away from a potential huge 26.2 PR, and although im powering through my training like a boss, and im hitting minutes per mile i have never seen before on longer runs, and im loving it and hating it and laughing and crying and and and... i regret choosing the race i picked. i cant wait for mount desert island in october. (18 weeks... but whos counting?)

6. im terrible at getting birthday/christmas gifts sent out on time. cassie, you always wanted your birthday in july instead of may, right?

7. i have an obsession with feetures socks, anything/everything zebra print, and hooded sweatshirts.

(and now im supposed to nominate  people/blogs for the award but pretty much everyone i know already got nominated cuz theyre awesome, so yeah. im not gonna do that)

another awesome thing happened this week (amidst all the non awesome things that have been simultaneously occurring lately):

saaaaaay whaaaat?!?!?!

oh yes. its true. i will be rockin the streets of boston covered in neon and awesome with this chica and this chica. we are team "call us maybe". thank you to janine for my giveaway win! if anyone else wants in, feel free to join our team!


  1. Tough love: I won't hear you moaning about your marathon choice!! It is going to be big pimpin fabulous so knock it off :-)
    Oh and I'm so in for color me rad. Is that the July 15th one?
    And I live on pb&j and am curious about your aversion to jelly but I respect you for your differences.

  2. If you are gonna use jelly at least tell me you have had a peanut butter and banana sandwich! 18 weeks to MDI? Guess I better start training to cheer all your crazy butts on :-)

  4. You are going to have a HUGE PR at your next marathon! From all of the super training you and Sarah have been through - I expect insane results. Congrats on the Color Me Rad win! Have an awesome time.

  5. EEEEK! I'm so happy that you're doing the COLOR ME RAD 5k! I hope to see you there!!!

    Agreed on the TP issue. I HAVE to turn it if it's going matter whose house I'm at.

  6. That's going to be so much fun! I can't wait to hear about your PR at your next marathon. It's going to be ridiculous!

  7. I have only ever had one PB&J sandwhich, ever. I hated it. I hate jelly!
