Quick, Hurry, RUN, It’s Wedding Day!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on August 14, 2009

Good morning!

Last night I put my running clothes out for motivation!


This trick typically never fails me.

Although I had a VERY restless sleep (soft bed). Eric and I missed our extra firm bed! I was wide awake around 5am. When our alarm went off at 6:30am the room was an ice cube. We were so excited to get A/C for free we cranked it last night I guess. Oops. It was so hard getting out for my run, but I finally made it around 7:20am. And guess what? It was hot, hot, hot. Today is going to be scorching!

Oh and I had my green monster before heading out. :D

I quickly showered and then I committed the cardinal sin of up-dos. I washed my hair the day of! I figured that was better than the alternative- a hot, knotty mess!

It was so much fun running in a new city!!!

The run:

  • 35 mins
  • Max HR: 175 bpm
  • Avg HR: 162 bpm
  • Avg pace: 8:50 min/mile
  • Distance: 4 miles

Unfortunately I forgot my moleskin so I got a blister on my right foot. I called Eric to see if he can buy me some bandaids on his way home from golfing or it will be a long night in 4” heels!

My dress steaming while I showered to get the wrinkles out..


Now I am fresh faced and getting ready to head next door in a few minutes. About 8 of us ladies will be getting hair and make-up done, so I am sure we will be tied up right until the ceremony at 3pm!

I will be snapping pictures of everything from the food Leah ordered this morning to the Samosas that Carley is making….to my hair…makeup and toaster radio! lol. Should be some funny pictures.

Whew. Today is SUCH a stressful day with coworkers for me. Reading this makes me happy — knowing how happy you and everyone else are today. A warm thought to hold on to. HAVE FUN!


Susan August 14, 2009 at 12:10 pm

Great job and getting up early and going for a run!! I find it starts to get hot at 7am when I’m running. And anything before that is freezing! :P

I love the colour of that dress – it’s going to be so flattering on you!


Jenn Eats Nutritiously Now August 14, 2009 at 12:18 pm

I’m so impressed that you got up to run before heading out! Have a wonderful, wonderful time.


Shannon August 14, 2009 at 12:45 pm

I can’t believe your hotel room. LOL. The pink carpet kills me. Lovin the dress, can’t wait to see pics of it on.
