Weekly Wrap – Catching my breath

Another whirlwind week is done! Thanks to juggling work, home, and volunteer commitments I was once again running around like my hair was ablaze. Workouts were whittled down events but did happen in some fashion.

Monday:  A rare Monday run…and at night no less!

Tuesday:  Rest.

Wednesday: 3-mile run

Thursday: Strength work

Friday: Yoga was planned but didn’t happen

Saturday: 4 miles and the first snow run of the season!

I’m relieved to say that J’s work-related travel is done for a while and he was back in time for us to attend his office holiday party Friday night, which was great fun. The weekend was spent trying to catch up on an array of household stuff, including getting our tree, decorating, and wrangling with the Shutterfly site trying to pull together a Christmas card and photo calendar.

This week there is nothing looming large on the schedule, so I’m looking forward to things settling down a bit.

In other running related news, I decided last minute to throw my hat in for the Cherry Blossom lottery…and this happened

After being a part of the RnB team for both 2015 and 2016, I stepped away this year as I knew I wasn’t going to be able to do much travel (and in the end, with my injuries it turned out to be a good choice!). So I’m happy to back and now have a little extra motivation to figure out which races I’m running next year! And I’m looking forward to some blogger meet ups!

I’m linking up with Holly & Tricia for the Weekly Wrap, and with MarciaErika, and Patty for Tuesdays on the Run.

Anyone else join the CB lottery? Will I see you at a Rock ‘n’ Roll race next year?



  1. So many bloggers I follow are Rock n Bloggers again this year! Congrats, girl!

  2. Congrats on RnB! If I was closer, I’d love to try the Cherry Blossom….but ugh. it’s just too far away to justify it, and it’s at a busy time of year. Maybe someday…..

  4. I love that you ran in the start of the snow on Saturday!
    Glad to have you back on the RockNBlog team this year – do you have any races in mind yet? I’m definitely doing Philly and hopefully a few others.

  5. I threw my name in the hat for RnR at the last minute. I wasn’t going to reenter but I do want to do Chicago again. And I’d like to do LV. Hopefully we can meet up at a race this year!

  6. I hope I see you at a RnR race this year! We’re long overdue. 😀

  8. One of these years I WILL do the Cherry Blossom ..it’s been on my radar for years!! This year it doesn’t work for me scheduling wise …maybe 2019 will be the year. I’d love to meet up with you sometime! Who knows, maybe all the stars will line up and we’ll see each other at a RnR this coming year!

  9. Congrats on the Rock n Blog! I was hoping to do Cherry Blossom this year. I volunteered last year so had an automatic entry without having to go through the lottery. But of course, that’s the weekend my brother chose for his wedding! Oh well, I’ll get to do it one year 🙂

  11. Yay for Rock ‘n’ Blog! I hope to see you this year!

    I wanted to put in for Cherry Blossom, but it is the same day as the Savannah Women’s Half, so I couldn’t do it. Maybe next year!

  12. “Thanks to juggling work, home, and volunteer commitments I was once again running around like my hair was ablaze” – this comment just made my day! So I am not the only one?! LOL. Well done on making the RockNBlog Team for 2018 – I am looking forward to all those race recaps!

  13. Not even the snow can stop you, Michelle! The Rock ‘n’ Roll race seems like an awesome idea. It’s definitely food for thought. 😉

  14. Congratulations on returning to the RockNBlog team. They certainly know how to put on races. I’ve been eyeing Savannah for a while. I hope you are having a nice stres,s free week (if that is even possible this time of year!). Thanks for linking!

  15. Congrats on being on the RnR Team, I hope Cheery Blossom works out, that would be an amazing race.
