Wow this weekend has been busy, but also very exciting! I am officially moved into my new apartment and I ran Freihofer's Run for Women with a 4+ minute PR! Friday I attended the Health & Fitness Expo that is sponsored by Freihofer's (Freihofer's is a big baking company in the Northeast - mainly known for their breads and cookies - which are way too delicious). It was a lot of fun to walk around, get free stuff and I picked up my bib number and free box of cookies.

I woke up Saturday (race day) to RAIN! Luckily it only drizzled prior to the race and more or less stopped during - it was just wet - which luckily kept the temperature down but the humidity up. There were approximately 4,000 women that ran the race, including a ton of Olympians! I ended up running the 5K in 33:53 which was a 4 minute and 25 second PR from last year. Still not great (I have off my working out game these past two months) but I was still happy with it! (More pictures of the race to come later!)
After the race I went to pick up the UHaul cargo van for the second part of the day - MOVING! I had pretty much moved everything into my new apartment except for the 'big stuff'; but with some amazing help we were able to move all the big things (chair and a half, bed, dresser, etc ...), pick up a second chair and a half and deliver a couch all in 4 trips! The move took the majority of the afternoon and of course it rained and/or misted the entire time but I am so happy to have everything moved! Once everything was into my new apartment I spent a couple of hours setting up and putting stuff away - I still have a lot to do but here are some pictures so far!

|Kitchen! Not as much counter space as the old place but the appliances are MUCH nicer.|

|IKEA desk for my home office - in near perfect condition, bought used for $50 off of Craigslist - what a deal!|
And happy 100,000 miles to my car! I missed the actual rollover but this is pretty close.
I am going to continue to unpack/put away and then later I plan on seeing Snow White and the Huntsman! Happy Sunday!
