Foto Friday: 10k

Last Weekend I returned to Richmond for the "Ukrops Monument Avenue 10k presented by Sportsbackers" (wow, that was a mouthful). I had a great time staying with a good friend I hadn't seen in person for almost a year, and I got to meet (and completely approve of) her boyfriend and their new dog.
I caught up with friends and even though it wasn't sunny and actually a little rainy, I had a fun time running & wished that in addition to my nike sportwatch I had one of those new smart watches that takes pictures or a go-pro cause there were some great costumes & getting my phone out mid-race was not an option.

Anyway here are some pictures from the weekend: 
This year's t-shirt

Post-Race thumbs-up! Since it was raining a spectator/cheerer held up a "Best Wet T-Shirt Contest Ever!" sign, which made me realized the white shirt/blue sports bra combo wasn't my best idea ;)

The coolest costumed runners I saw: Forrest Gump & Jenny!


My hostess and the adorable Gus!
Post-race brunch w/ some other Spider alumni! I got a delicious lamb, kale, onion, hash brown skillet w/ feta ant goat cheese, and it was perfect!

Hanging out with my favorite giant-headed dog!

Gus knew just how I felt Saturday night...

Musical Thursday! Long Playlist Edition

So unfortunately this past Monday I was unable to post because I spent most of Sunday & Monday comforting my mom who had to put her dog down =(

But I do have some music to share.

I tried to make a playlist for someone on spotify and sharing seemed impossible cause whatever avenue I attempted seemed to fail. So I'm gonna try to embed the player here w/ the html embed code and my frustration is your luck because now everyone will get a chance to hear the awesome playlist:

Skip the Ramona Falls track (the first one), for some reason it wont stream

The purpose was to share music we didn't think the other person had heard, so frequent blog visitors might see some of my frequent favorites, Matt Corby, HAIM, Bombay Bicycle Club but even then, I hope you discovered something new =)
