What I’m Loving: October

I argue that fall is truly the best time of the year. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I love enjoying the fall season without all the stress and hustle that Christmas brings.

Twin Cities Marathon 2018 Race Recap

My training for the Twin Cities Marathon this year was some of my best training ever. My long runs went great and I did more strength training than ever before. I also feel like I was able to balance my training with the rest of my life, and I took a lot of pressure off of myself by feeling like I had to post each and every workout on social media. I felt like I was running for me, and really enjoyed the process.

Everything was great until an easy 12 miler 2 weeks before the marathon. I felt fine when I was running, but after the fact, I started feeling pain in both of my feet on the inside of the arches as well as the inside of the knees. Whenever I experience something like this, I usually take a few days off to make sure I feel better before running again (Sorry if this offends you. If you believe in running while injured, go for it!).

My friend suggested trying Blue Apron, a meal delivery service and was able to send me a free trial offer.

Garage Door Refresh

As I was doing my yearly cleaning of the siding on my house, I noticed that my garage door was starting to look really dingy, even after I cleaned it, and I knew it was time for a refresh!

After cleaning, I wiped it down with a liquid sanding solution and let that dry, and then refreshed with white paint. It took 2 heavy coats of paint to get even coverage across the texture of the garage door, and I made a lot of effort to do a neat job around the seals on the edges, so it ended up being a much bigger project than I had anticipated!

Kitchen Remodel Decor Details

While waiting on my new countertop installation, I have started pulling together some of the smaller decor items. As I’ve mentioned before, I really want to keep a retro vibe for the kitchen and keep it original to the design of the home. I am keeping the birch cupboards as is, and just refinishing the wood since the finish is starting to wear off.
