You deserve it.

From my new favorite girls –  Katrina Hodgson & Karena Dawn from the Tone it Up Plan

You live longer once you realize that any time spent being unhappy is wasted.”

Life is full of choices. You can choose..

~ who to hang out with
~ what to eat
~ when to exercise
~ where to live
~ and most importantly, how to feel..

Choose to be happy. You deserve it. ♥

Do what makes YOU happy. You only live once, right? So go out there AND LIVE!

This is what makes ME happy :

It’s Really Starting…

Today is my first day of my real marathon training. I looked at a couple of training programs and then kind of made up my own. So it’s Catie’s Marathon Training Guide for Catie. Tonight I ran 3.5 miles in Central Park with some friends from work. I will post the entire schedule, I promise. I can tell you that I’ll be running Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Saturday will be my long run days.

It’s starting to get really hot here which makes running way more difficult. I miss the colder days – only when I run though… If I’m laying by the pool and its 85 degrees then that’s great! Running in that heat… not so great…

I hope you all had a lovely Memorial Day Weekend. My weekend was full of fun! And laying by the pool (Thanks for being the best host ever Jackie)!!! I even got to see my running buddy Kristen from Nashville!

Notice my shorter hair!!! What’d you think!??

I Think We’re Too Old For This Stuff…

Atlantic City was so much fun!!! But I’m really feeling our late night today… Going to bed at 5am is not something my body can do. College is long gone and this past weekend I realized this. Also, a lot of people we met were 21… When they would ask how old I was (24) they would be like, WOAH. You don’t look that old…  Thank you for making me feel old!!

PS – My friend Jackie won $3,000 on a slot machine while we were there too!!! It was so funny because she sat down just to waste time before dinner and for a photo-op! We were so excited!

I did run with my Jackie Saturday morning before we left for Atlantic City! Aren’t you proud!? I ran in my new shoes and loved them!!! We ran 3.64 miles around her neighborhood. I really do love suburban life 🙂

I’m definitely NOT running today. Must rest. Tomorrow a bunch of my friends and I are running in the AHA Wall Street 3 mile run. It’s suppose to rain… of course! But I’m crossing my fingers the weather people are wrong!

Girls Weekend

It’s the WEEKEND!!! 

I’m very excited because this weekend I’ll be having lots of fun with some of my closest friends. We’ve decided to have a girls weekend and are going to Atlantic City. Much fun will be had and millions of photos will be taken. I can’t wait!

I’ve planned to run with one of my friends, Jackie, but it looks like it’s suppose to rain… Maybe we’ll just have to use the gym at the hotel. I’m hoping to get some miles in, but if not, oh well. Having fun with friends will take precedent over running this weekend 🙂

I hope you all have a lovely weekend too!!!

Oh and Happy Birthday Weekend to Kristen, my Running Buddy in Nashville! Her birthday was yesterday and I know she’s doing something super fun this weekend!!!
