Weekending: Travel Edition # 2

Guess what? I only have one more week of training time near this lovely beach, and this coming weekend I get to fly back home for Christmas for a couple weeks! That means that soon I get to snuggle my kitty cats.

I also get to see what kind of groceries my husband has been keeping in the house in the three weeks I’ve been gone. I’m guessing there’s going to need to be a trip to the grocery store.

I would not be good at traveling for work. I’m unraveling here. I need my blankets and my tiny apartment.


I did a decent amount of running this weekend and today. Don’t be fooled; it was immediately followed by laying there like a giant two-legged potato. My legs don’t actually hurt that much after I run, but my ovaries still hate me. Don’t ask me why.

I’ve been running with other people a couple times, which is really fun, but also makes me run faster. My body should take it easy, but my mind says go go go.

Usually, when I run in my own neighborhood, I do a mix of walking and running, but lately, I feel great while I’m running but not great later. I know if I just ease up a bit, it will feel a little better.


I ate all the foods this weekend. The people in my group wanted to go out to eat a couple times, and we were able to get away from our hotel rooms and relax . The first time was a little hard to find vegan food, but I made it work with some salad and fries and a tall glass of cider. No pictures, because I devoured it all. Next, I convinced them to stop at Mellow Mushroom, because I knew I could order a vegan pizza there. Yummmm. Next time, I’ll order it without cheese, and just toppings.

I also took myself to Moe’s for a burrito bowl and Sonic for a strawberry slushy and some tots. The only thing that could be better is if they still had sweet potato tater tots.

Then, I found these babies at Target, and you better believe I bought them. I tried one today, and they taste just like pumpkin pie.


I went to go see Mockingjay Part 2, and I enjoyed it. It was a nice end to the series, even if I’m not sure if they needed two parts.

I knew it was going to be sad, and I was also terrified during one scene. If you’ve seen it, you probably know which one. I knew it was coming, but it was so scary!

I thought I made it past all the sad parts and hadn’t started crying yet, but then there is a certain animal part that I totally lost it at.

How was your weekend? Have you seen any new movies?

I’m linking up with Biana today for weekending at B Loved Boston.

  1. That's awesome that you'll be headed home soon for Christmas! I know that being away from home can be tough. So glad that you got to see the last Hunger Games! I agree with you that it probably could have been one movie but I still enjoyed it too. And I know exactly which animal part you're talking about! I almost lost it ther too!


  2. i havent seen the last hunger games movie, i wanted to reread the books or rewatch the movies before i did. might wait till dvd.
    girl what is with your ovaries? that is super weird. don't go hurting your ovaries just to run. and mellow mushroom is life. yum.


  3. Good job running all the time! I've been trying my hardest to get to the gym as much as possible but it's the holiday season so I've been a slacker 🙂 Ohh Mellow Mushroom is so tasty, but I haven't been there in like a year so that might have to change this weekend! I've never read Hunger Games books or seen the movies which is pretty bad since everyone loves that stuff.


  4. a) Your blue running leggings are super cute!
    b) Moe's is my boyfriend. Queso is my love language.
    c) If you like the pumpkin pie bars, check Target for the Snickerdoodle flavor. SO GOOD!
