I just wanted to share a couple photos from the MOST amazing weekend with my siblings (and friends <3 Art, Amber, and Michael!)

You might notice that this does not include photos from the race, because - it was terrible! I'll address that straight up, I did not qualify for Boston, not even close. As disappointed as I am to have not accomplished my goal, I'm more disappointed that months and miles of training ended in a run that I did not enjoy at all. But you know, in my years of running, if there's one thing I've learned, it's that the bad races are guaranteed, they just happen! I'm not looking for sympathy, because I'm really ok with it. Honestly it was a small victory for me to even finish the race, considering how badly I wanted to quit starting at about mile 11 (seriously.) For about the last 6 miles I was promising myself I would never run again and certainly never a marathon, but I'm already over that :) because my last marathon ever needs to end on a good note.

ANYWAY I love my brothers and sisters so much, you guys! I was so bummed on Monday when everyone was gone! Like apart from loving them out of familial obligation, they are just the most fun to do anything with. Sometimes I pretend they're just a cool group of friends that I have. I'm already scheming up a lake weekend this Summer with everyone.

I think the highlight of my entire weekend was spending Sunday afternoon grilling and hanging out and eventually going on a golden hour bike ride (my bf has enough bikes for all of us, lol.) It was absolutely perfect and what I want to do every Sunday.

We also: made Shalane Flangan's Marathon Lasagna on Friday night (it didn't help), checked out the new Topgolf in Nashville, had dinner at Nicky's Coal Fired, played ping-pong at Clyde's (obviously), made breakfast burritos at home, and Amir helped me string lights on my deck but they fell and shattered and now it's a nice little deathtrap where I'm only inviting people I hate.
