I celebrated the final training run with some shopping yesterday. I hardly ever buy anything other than running gear lately but yesterday I picked up a couple of pretty tops and a pair of cropped jeans at Macy’s.

I got this very summery Free People top:

But I bought a purple cami to wear underneath instead of the one in the pic above. It’s a great style for my shape (apple!) No bargain here though 🙁

I also got this sheer, floral, long sleeve Lucky top.

Again, no bargain…but I LOVED how it tied in the front. Sometimes tunic style tops overwhelm my short 5′ 3″ body and I don’t like dressy button down tops that have to be tucked in because they get wrinkly and fussy. So this will be great. I’m going to wear this today so I’ll post a photo to my instagram later.

And to round out the bottom, I got these Tommy Hilfiger cropped jeans:

Then I went to the grocery store to get my pre-race fuel stash:

Super Pretzels

Super Pretzels and some fresh flowers just for kicks

I picked up these pretty carnations too. Don’t they look so pretty on my table?

Then I got suckered into the half price Easter candy at the register.

But I evened out the sugar with my “family size” container of organic spinach!

Tonight when I get home from work I’m taking this boy for a little shopping spree too!

Duncan and Sally

Curl overload!

Well we’re just going to the pet store for poop bags and dog food but I’m sure he’ll score a treat at the register.

Hope everyone made it throught the week ok.

Question: What are you doing this weekend? Anyone have a race?
Last chance to suggest inspiring songs or quotes/mantras to me….

  1. I always love retail therapy:) good luck with your race!!

  2. I have a 10 miler tomorrow. It’s raining right now though so hopefully the skies clear up for me. I have my Brooklyn Half coming up on 5/17 – BEYOND excited! Now I’m kinda kicking around the idea of running a full in the Fall. I’ve never done one before so it’s super intimidating. PS Reese’s eggs!!! So delicious!

  3. I’ve been to my grocery store twice this week, they have NO leftover Easter candy!!! I seriously looked the second time, haha. I think they just ship it off to another Shop Rite to mark down. I supposed it’s for the best though, I have way too much crap in my house!

  4. Good luck with your race! No races for me this weekend but I did do a 10 mile run yesterday to get ready for a half marathon coming up soon.
