I started my weekend bright and with my my longest run ever: 11 miles.
Joel ran with me - which is an enormous help - and we powered through every mile. I actually can't believe that I'm able to run these distances, but I'm doing it! Of course, in the final hour of training, I'm starting to get really bad foot pain, but I'm taking it easy this week so that it doesn't become a factor on race day (which is next Sunday!).
Friday night I hosted a fall-themed dinner party for some of my girlfriends here in LA. I had so much fun getting my house together for the night, and everything turned out really well.
These yummy fall champagne cocktails were a hit!
I didn't take any pictures once people arrived, but I think that's a sign of a good time. Most of the girls left before 11, but a few stragglers stayed and their husbands joined them...so we ended up playing cards against humanity until wayyyyy to late. And we did a little damage on some of the leftovers.
Needless to say, Saturday was an all day couch fest. Hungover and exhausted, I pretty much ate my weight in bad food and watched more football than one should.
I had to be up early on Sunday for a morning flight out to Orlando. Ive been lucking out lately on being able to book affordable Virgin flights, so I was more than comfortable on our way there.
The hotel I'm staying in Orlando is the Marriott World Center which is a huge convention hotel. For a personal trip, I would hate it, but for a work trip - it's perfect. My room is nice and cozy and everything you could ever need is in the hotel which is a really nice relief.
Have a great week!
