Happy Saturday! (: I hope you had a wonderful day. 
This week has been full of a lot of firsts. 
I've never tried a blog feed before. After trying to go through all my favorite blogs after vacation and camp, I realized it's something I really need as my blog and the number of blogs I read continue to grow! I'm trying Bloglovin currently. We will see how it goes (: Follow me!

I have never counted calories daily before. I started using MyFitnessPal on my iphone and I really enjoy it! I like knowing what's healthy, otherwise I feel like I eat too many or too little calories. Follow me: Ea2797

I know I had no breakfast and a huge lunch, but my day was NOT a normal schedule, I promise (;

I've never had my run analyzed before! Since Cross Country camp has my weekly mileage between 20-30 and above and I have been starting to get shin pains, I decided to buy some new shoes. I went to a fancy running store and had my run analyzed on a treadmill. Apparently I am pretty neutral, so that's good (I think?). I ended up picking the Saucony Ride 6. 

They are so beautiful!! (:

They are so bright- I love it!!

Seriously, these are so much more fun than my old shoes! 

These are so boring compared to my new babies.
I got fitted for the shoes yesterday, but the store only had ugly colors, so I waited to buy them until today when they got in their new shipment. 

Today I was SUPPOSED to have my first trail run and longest run with the team (70 minutes!) However, I had a roller-coaster kind of night as far as blood sugars, and I ended up waking up with a really high number and ketones. Ketones pretty much mean my body is messed up from all the extra sugar. I had moderate ketones, so I didn't have to go to the hospital, but I had to rest and flush them out. No long run for me.. I was really upset. It was 5 in the morning and I had already gotten ready when I realized I felt pretty sick and tested for ketones. 

I wasn't going to keep that from letting me run! I still had a lot of hours left in the day. I picked up the new shoes and headed to the Y. I did 6 miles in my new shoes, with a few walking breaks. Running goes by SO much faster outside with the team! It was lonely at the Y, even with Say Yes To The Dress and Friends to keep me company :(. 

I want to apologize for being so MIA recently. I have been trying to really enjoy a week of my summer just relaxing (besides the whole running every morning thing). I will get back to blogging regularly soon, I promise (: 

How was your week? Have you ever been to a running specialty store? What blog feed do you use? 



  1. Bloglovin is my new google reader! And I'm already following you, of course :). I'm in love with your new kicks! Bright colors are the only way to go when it comes to running shoes!

  2. I am already following you on Bloglovin :) And I am sorry about your ketone levels :( I am actually very impressed that you still ran 6 miles despite being sick! Oh and I added you on myfitnesspal :)

  3. I'm so sorry about missing that long trail run! That seriously sucks! No worries though, you'll get to run the long run soon and you'll do great! I seriously love your new shoes! New shoes make running that much better. I sometimes count calories too for the same reason. I'm always under or over. Maybe it'll help me be just right!

  4. I'm so sorry that you had to miss the run! It seriously stinks when things don't go as planned. :(
    I love your shoes :):):)
    I've never been analyzed while I run, but I will do that for my next shoes. I have really bad knees, and they actually hurt worse on a treadmill???

  5. Love the running shoes! I use my Fitness Pal sometimes too- it's the best calorie app I've found- they have everything! Hope you had a good weekend :)
