I Can Die Happy Now….

7 Oct

….’cause I discovered THIS last night:

What is that, you ask?  Oh, that’s just 16 HANDLES’ PUMPKIN FROZEN YOGURT.  Yes, it’s true.  16 Handles has gotten into the spirit of my most favoritest season with my most favoritest seasonal flavor.

Lots of bloggers seem to lose their mind over this place, which I agree is pretty awesome.  But it’s just far enough east on the UES that I’m rarely nearby and have only been inside once before.  However, I found myself walking by it last night and on a whim, decided to pop in.

So, what you see in that bowl is “Fist Pumpkin” and also a dab of “Birthday Cake” topped with graham cracker crumbs.  It was the BOMB.

In other news, did I run this morning?  No, I did not.  Was I supposed to?  Why, yes, I was!  But not a biggie.  I was only slated for 5 miles, which I can do tomorrow.  I really wanted/needed to sleep in again this morning.  I’ve been so tired lately!  My plan was to do my miles on the day I was actually supposed to do them for my final 2 weeks of training.  Typically, I just squeeze in the required miles when I have time each week.  Anyhow, that plan was obviously derailed this morning.  Again, not a biggie and I do truly think that sleep was more important this morning, especially when it’s only 5 miles and I can easily do them tomorrow– which was slated as a rest day.

I’m looking forward to a fun weekend — dinner tonight with my 3 NYC besties at Vesta and then another dinner tomorrow night with some of my besties + T and some others at Blue Hill.  5 miles tomorrow and 12 on Sunday, which is ONE WEEK from my race!  Sunday is also Emily and Shawn’s engagement party.  You remember them, right?  They’re super cute and cool and they run together and sometimes with me.


Happy weekend, everyone!

    I have been exhausted lately, too! Whenever I get super tired, I always choose sleep over running. Its hard to tell the difference between “this run will make me less tired” tired or “I am actually exhausted” tired.

    I am trying not to eat too much dessert-y stuff between now and the marathon but you best believe I will be pumpkin fro yoing myself immediately upon finishing. Probably before though. I don’t have that kind of willpower.
