RAWK it, ladies!

23 Sep

Ahh, this morning was a blessed break from running.  Last night, I got my nails done with some girlfriends and then fell asleep on T’s lap watching “Always Sunny.”

wow, my nails are stumpy

Today I am wearing a very fall-like shirt from J Crew that is making me happy.  Something tells me this top will get worn a LOT.

Yay for orange, fall-y clothes! I'm wearing the top with jeans, though, and not those weird pants...

Anyway, I just wanted to post a quick shout-out to 2 lovely ladies who are gonna rock the Hamptons Half and full, respectively, tomorrow!

First is my awesome buddy Lori, aka “Baber,” who is running her first race ever.  This girl always thought I was nuts being so into running, but also always supported me, as documented here

What a great friend! She even made me a sign in my favorite color. There's a lot of pink right there...

Well, now she is going to freaking RULE the Hamptons Half and I am soooooo very excited for her!  GOOD LUCK, BABER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Second up is Ali, who has been training hard with her own personal running coach, (lucky girl!) thanks to Jackrabbit Sports.  I met Ali at a concert, before she was a runner, but now she is a major running bada$$ who is going to school her first marathon!  Here we are going for a little East Side morning jaunt.  I am proud to say that I was her FIRST running date ever!  (Ali, can we make this happen again soon?  Mmmkay, thaaaaaanks.)

UES-livin', marathon runnin' Regina Spektor fans, UNITE!

I can’t wait to hear from both these ladies tomorrow!  GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!  YOU’RE BOTH AMAZINGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A belated thanks for such a nice post, Baber! I can’t thank you enough for being such a wonderful friend and running coach to me…..always there to answer my endless questions as I stressed out about every running issue known to mankind…from ‘do I have to run today?’ to ‘what should I wear on race day?’ Thank you so much. xoxo
    Ali -I hope you had a great race, despite the $#%* humidity!

    What is that nail polish color? I have a slight obsession with nail polish colors.

      Darn it! I wish I remembered… now that I’m looking at it in the picture, it IS really pretty, isn’t it? I love your nail polish obsession. 🙂
