My favorite place on Earth…

Sanford Stadium is by far my favorite place on Earth.  I’ve traveled abroad, seen beautiful places, but Sanford Stadium is MY favorite place to be.  Matt and I, along with another couple, went to Athens Saturday to watch the Dawgs play Kentucky.  The only bad part = 7 pm game combined with cold temperatures.  I love night games…but not November night games.  The weather during the day was perfect.  Not too cold, not too hot.  We had a great time.  And of course, the Dawgs won.  Unfortunately, that sweet, good-looking Aaron Murray wasn’t able to finish his last home game as a UGA football player.  Actually, he wasn’t able to finish his last game of his college career at all due to tearing his ACL.  In any event…

Yeah, it was COLD.

The couple with us got engaged last week…YAY! (I definitely told them “may God be with you” 🙂

Where is YOUR favorite place on Earth??  What makes it awesome??

The next day, Matt and I had lunch, went grocery shopping, and then I had a spin class to teach.  Here is the playlist I used:

photo 2 (2) photo 1 (2)Yes, as you can see, I do love Miley’s new album.  Despite what the critics say, I think this girl is a genius.  Yes, she needs to class it up a bit.  But as an artist, she has made some bold but beneficial decisions.  I mean, think about it, we are all still talking about what a tragic mess she is, right?!  My point exactly.  PS. Watch The Miley Movement if you haven’t already.  Might change your mind 🙂

I’ll be teaching a Ripped Ride class tonight, so I will have another playlist for you tomorrow with some new songs I am trying out.  I know we all have a busy week ahead of us with Thanksgiving in just a few days.  I’m looking forward to a lot of things later this week…lots of food and family time Wednesday & Thursday, Van Gogh & Vino session with my cousin Friday night (she convinced me that they CAN teach me how to paint), and our first annual Friendsgiving with Presley on Saturday.  This event also requires me to make a few dishes for our dinner–can I just bring the booze?!  🙂

Time to Regroup & Refocus.

It’s almost that time of the week…half way there.  I am super pumped for this weekend.  Not only am I running my first race since my last half-marathon in February, but we are headed to Athens to see the Bulldogs play.  Basically, that means I have to run a quick 5K and get my butt home and in the shower ASAP…it’s a 12:30 game!  But that’s alright…we will make it in time to tailgate for an hour or so and then we can hit downtown Athens after the game.  This game is a way for us to celebrate a friend’s birthday…so I can’t wait for Saturday.

Since this is my first race in 7 months, you can guess what I haven’t been doing…if you guessed running, I’m buying you a cheeseburger.  The last time I hit the pavement was about a month ago.  So yeah, this oughta be an interesting race.  I did come home from work today and decided I would get at least 3 miles in to make sure I wouldn’t actually die on Saturday.  I made 3.17 miles.  But I won’t tell you my time.

It wasn’t terrible but definitely not what I’m used to.  I have a feeling, though, that I’ll get my butt in gear on Saturday.  Races always push you a little harder.  

Speaking of races, it really is time to get my butt in gear.  I have a 5K this weekend, the Pretty Muddy Mud Run in October, and then a half-marathon in November.  Yep…it’s time to start training…I’m totally behind.  I guess I keep thinking that since I’ve done it twice before, I can do it again.  But what I’ve found out about running is once you stop, or slow down, it’s hard as HELL to get yourself back together.  I really hope the 5K this weekend will give me the motivation to start getting some long runs in.  Otherwise, the Savannah half is going to be a comical disaster…

Last night I taught Spin30…here’s my playlist and what I looked like aftewards:

By the way, I have started posting updates to my Spinning page on the blog so check it out from time to time for playlists and routines.  I’ll leave you with this flattering photo…this is how I decided to relax after work, running, and dinner. A little homemade wine while sitting in the bed ain’t never hurt nobody 😉
