Happy Sunday everyone. I’m writing to you today live from rainy Chicago. The RnR Chicago weekend has come to an end but I’m still smiling from ear to ear. It was an epic weekend (I got to meet both Wendy and Holly!) that I will recap later on this week, but for today, you just get my weekly wrap. Enjoy!
Monday, July 16
No workout. I had to take care of a few errands after work and ran out of time.
Tuesday, July 17
5 mile run.
I was happy with this run and still did my intervals. After this run, I knew I would survive both races this weekend.
Wednesday, July 18
Boot Camp (60 minutes).
First day back to boot camp. I modified a few moves but overall it was a great class. I really missed it and I’m glad that I can go again!
Thursday, July 19
3.1 mile run.
I ran 3.1 miles for the #VirtualHappyHourRun. There are 3 races in this virtual race series and all proceeds go to the American Institute for Cancer Research. You can click here for more information if you’re interested!

No workout. Travel day to Chicago for #RnRChi. Thankfully our flight wasn’t delayed and we were able to grab some brunch before heading to the expo. I met up with Michelle and Deborah at the expo – it was so nice to finally meet Deborah IRL and see Michelle again!

Rock ‘n’ Roll 5K!
This race actually went well. I was feeling good so I stopped to walk less than expected and I’m happy with my race result. Before the race I met even more bloggers and then headed to brunch with them after the race. Such an amazing day!

Rock ‘n’ Roll 10K
The weather was not delightful (rainy and windy), but I will say that I’ll take that over hot, humid and sunny any day! The first half of the race was good but the last two miles were a little difficult. Happy that I was able to push through! Also shoutout to my mom – she was 2nd in her AG for the 5K and 1st in her AG got the 10K! Too bad the race doesn’t give out actual AG awards for either distance, just the half marathon 🙁
Total Weekly Mileage: 17.4
Weekly Weight Loss: No clue as I’m still in Chicago, lol
Grade This Week – A
I was really excited about my workouts this week. Getting back to boot camp was nice because I missed the instructor and some of the people in the class! Hitting a 5 mile run earlier in the week gave me a great confidence boost. I was a little worried about being able to complete both races this weekend but I knew that if I could do 5 miles, I could definitely do 6.2 miles.
Earlier in the week I received this awesome care package from the RockN Blog team! It was a nice surprise, especially the SIS gels (I’ve been meaning to try those) and the shirt with names of all of the RockNBlog members.
I’m going to recap all the fun from this weekend in a separate post but I just wanted to give a quick shoutout to both Holly and Wendy for hosting Weekly Wrap each week. I started doing the link up about 2 years ago and it has not only given me a sense of community, but has also introduced me to so many awesome women running bloggers. I feel blessed to be a part of this community and hope that we can do another blogger meet up at another race next year!
That’s it for this week – thanks for reading my weekly wrap recap!
Do you take racecations? If so, which one has been your favorite so far?
