Marathons, Oscars & More

Okay guys, I know this is a photography blog but I've sucked at going out & taking pics lately. Everything is so dreary right now with all the snow and the slush that I just haven't been feeling very inspired. I promise I'll get back to it soon!

In the meantime, I didn't want to leave this little blog of mine full of crickets so I thought I'd talk about some of the things that have been making me excited lately!

First off, the Oscars are tonight and I'm beyond excited! Every year, John & I celebrate with food & contests & drinks! Tonight, we're going to our friends house to combine our traditions as a group! On a side note, I watch the E Red Carpet before every award show, and Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawrence look flawless! Not to mention, they starred in two of my favorite nominated movies (Zero Dark Thirty & Silver Linings Playbook-Both so good!)

Secondly, I wanted to talk a bit about the healthy side of my life. Last year, I went to yoga about 3-4 times a week for a year on average. I seriously fell in love with the activity and even considered training to become a yoga teacher. Unfortunately, the classes started to become costly not to mention my cardiovascular health was weakening, so I switched to a normal gym. I've been going since January and have enjoyed running & lifting weights. Something that tends to happen with me when it comes to the gym, is I lose my motivation quickly so I made a decision: to train to run a half marathon come this September. I'm going to run in a 5k first, then a 10k in May then train hard for the half marathon come this September. I'm super nervous but also very excited. Along with my photos, I'm going to post my progress here as well.. I hope you don't mind. It won't be lengthy but it'll just be little tidbits to keep myself motivated.

Photos coming soon, promise! Hope your weekend was great!
