Cupcakes AND Ice Cream!

It has been a crazy busy couple of weeks! I've been at baby showers galore (anyone else noticing that it is baby season?), working, running and even took a little trip down to San Diego to visit a friend. I was working a lot so this PYT needed a little TLC vacay in SD.

While in SD we found gluten free red velvet cupcakes. That's like an oxymoron so I had to try one.

It was pretty good but the frosting was wayyyy too rich for me. I'm not a super huge sweet tooth!

I say that as a few hours later this happened:

It was my first time ever in a Ghirardelli store! A little embarrassing, I know. Since it was my first time I couldn't just walk out of there without trying something. We all shared a hot fudge sundae and it was amazing.

BUT My favorite place was a lounge at the top of the Marriot (I think?) called the Sky Lounge (I think?) You could see Petco park from the lounge and it was just a really cool atmosphere.

Here's my goon self trying to take a selfie with the field in the background.
I guess I missed. Could be because I'm a terrible photographer or because of the Tequila. It's a close call.

Now I'm back in regular life mode again (booo!) which lead me to the realization that I have my 10th half marathon coming up in a matter of weeks!!! These next few weeks are critical for me to step it up and apply myself if I want to do well. Tomorrow will be my first long run in a while. I've been ranging between 2.5-4.5 miles at a time so tomorrow will be 6 miles. I've been taking it slow and steady to avoid increasing the likelihood of injury and I've just been so busy that running has taken the back seat. I guess that just happens sometimes, but I'll get back at it and PR soon enough :)

PS. cLook what arrived in the mail for me today as a belated birthday gift! #Winning
Lulu gift cards are like gold.

If you were going to buy an expensive piece of workout clothing would you rather drop the bills on a workout top or bottom?

For me, I'd go for the bottoms. My tops get all gross anyway and there is nothing more annoying than workout bottoms that ride up.
