1. Dunkin’ coffee is heavenly. I will definitely miss expensive coffee once I’m married and not living with my family!

2. I don’t know about Lola sometimes.

3. I took my brother’s dog, Moses, on some local trails over the weekend and he loved it. I’m kind of jealous at how far he can walk/run without getting tired.

4. Speaking of my brother, I snapped this picture of him sleeping on my bed. He recently caught a head cold, and I guess he just got tired and fell asleep on my bed?!

5. I gave a 10 minute presentation on my internship experience on Tuesday. I never mentioned it on my blog, but I was a writing intern over the summer for this company.

6. My elbow is feeling much better since the Gladiator Rock’n Run. The bruise is slowly fading,┬áhallelujah!!

What are you doing this weekend?
I will be working and doing homework. Hopefully I can sneak in some fun adventures, too!

Gladiators

Hannah, Kim, and I competed in Pittsburgh’s Gladiator Rock’n Run 5k on Saturday. We got so muddy and beat up! Here are some pictures…

Cinder block burpees. Not real life.

Rope and wall climbing and tire lunges. Also not real life.

We had to carry a huge log!

Crawling through mud under barbed wire. I was so nervous I was going to rip my shirt or pants!

Fire jumping at the finish!

My thoughts on the race:
-I thought I broke my elbow at one point. I’m not even exaggerating. We went down a huge slip ‘n slide, and I hit my elbow on a rock and was in tears. I have a huge bruise on the inside of my elbow and I’m still babying it.
-We had a lot of fun, and my cheeks hurt from laughing so much!
-Hannah and I keep finding bruises all over our legs and arms because the course was so rough!
-Just like MuckFest in May, I didn’t want to do this race, but I’m really glad I did.
