Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend and are refreshed and ready for the week! I’m certainly ready for a new week, especially since Friday starts my very last spring break! I’ve also got a few fun things going on this week – mani/pedi night with my sorority alumnae group and possibly a boxing class with Kelsey!

I do, however, want to recap some of the great stuff I got to do this past weekend. On Friday I met up with Kelsey in Millenium Park at the McCormick Skating Rink! I’d been wanting to get down there for… 3 years, and finally made it on the last weekend they were open this year.

I love the rink because it’s right in downtown (aka beautiful views) and it’s free! (Skate rental is $10 but I had my own).

I had the best time ever, and Kelsey… well she tried. Haha she got better as time went on (aka held on to my hand for slight periods rather than the edge)

After she let me skate around a while longer (and made some… interesting friends) we headed to The Bean for some classic tourist photos.

Yep, we think we’re pretty cool.

On Saturday morning I met up with Lindsay, Emily and Kelsey to run the Punk the Monk 5K! (really 3.25 miles, or 3.65 for Lindsay who went the wrong way). The race was out in Palatine, IL and, unlike the city streets, the snow had not melted…

Although the race was really fun (well, afterwards I decided it had been fun), it was HARD. Really hard. Lindsay and I agreed it was definitely a mental challenge.


The whole course was covered in several inches of snow. At first we were tromping through shin-deep snow, but by the end so many people had run over the path that it was packed down. This actually made it harder because the snow was at weird angles and there was a lot of slipping and ankle rolling. And then the finish was uphill… My lungs were basically on fire the entire time, but I’m proud of myself for pushing through.


Plus, they gave us these adorable mason jar jugs, and TWIZZLERS! Haha everyone else enjoyed the beer, I had a couple Twizzlers #glutenfreeproblems.


Here are my race results:


Oh wait. Wait a second… Did anyone catch that?


I BEAT LINDSAY!!!!! This is the only time in our lives where I will finish before her, so I’m going to relish in it. Of course it had nothing to do with the fact that she ran about .4 miles further than everyone after taking a wrong detour through someone’s backyard…

Oh, and I found these great photos from the Muddy Monk Facebook Page:

Have a great Monday!


Have you ever done a trail race?
