Weekend Recap

This past weekend was a pretty crazy one with a family wedding on Friday and a bachelorette party on Saturday. I took the day off of work on Friday (since the wedding ceremony started at 4pm). I was able to squeeze in my long run (9 miles) before the festivities began.

The temps were amazing and I felt great during and after the run. I wore my Oiselle aero tank that I purchased from Running Warehouse. I loooved it and have to invest in more. Since I was running on the trail, I decide to run with my Garmin but I changed the view to be only 1 field: distance. I'm going to keep running without looking at the times on my Garmin for a full month as it has worked out well for me thus far. :)

After a shower, running some errands, and studying for a bit, it was time to get ready for the wedding!

If you follow me on Instagram, these pics are old news. If you don't, here is a pic of me and my husband's cousin outside the church and then one of me and Toph at our dinner table. We danced the night away and I was happy to have done my long run on Friday when I woke up Saturday morning without having gotten much sleep. After coming back home on Saturday morning, I tried to get in some studying, and packing before it was time to head to the city for a bachelorette party! My aunt is getting married for the first time (she's 55 years old), so we celebrated in Wrigleyville at a Chicago Cubs Rooftop.

Those Brooks shades are certainly getting their use. It really was some great swag from the RNR Expo! Now it is back to the old grind and time to figure out my run, work, study schedule for the week. If you're wondering what I'm studying for, I've decided to attempt the CFA. I'm taking level 1 in December for the first time. I'm completely and utterly terrified and studying has only just begun...


  1. I'd seen you mention the CFA a few times but had no idea what it stood for. Thanks for the link! Now I know :-)

    I'm taking the final exam of my professional designation series on Thursday and am also pretty terrified!

  2. Love these low temps as well! Good to hear your Garmin-less month is going well.

  3. Thanks! Best of luck on your exam on Thursday! I'm sure you'll do great. :)

  4. Me neither. Yay fall!

  5. Running Warehouse had a deal a little while ago where it was an extra 20% off all "liquidation apparel" which included this tank. I ended up getting it for only $22... what a deal!

  6. Good for you for taking the CFA exam! You are going to be GREAT!

  7. What a crazy weekend! How many weddings/bacheolorette parties/baby showers have you gone to this summer?

    Thanks for letting us know what you are studying for! I was curious! :)

  8. Haha, I know... right? There has been something going on almost every weekend. I'm looking forward to winter when we won't have so many obligations. :)
