Last night I made it down to the fitness center at my hotel. It isn’t anything spectacular (I should have taken pictures, whoops). It had two stationary bikes, three treadmills, two ellipticals and some free weights. My legs are no longer sore, but they are tired so I opted for the stationary bike. I rode for 35 minutes while reading “Fade Out” by Rachel Caine (part of Morganville Vampire series, which I am so hooked on).

I skipped my workout this morning. My knees are kind of hurting from the stationary bike (weird that that does it to me, but running doesn’t?) and we’ll be walking a lot this weekend as we act like tourists in D.C.

I am excited to get back to running on Monday! I do need to strategize my training plan for Boston… especially since running hills will be a huge part of it.

So I’m getting married in October. I am on the hunt for a wedding dress and have narrowed it down to two dresses.

I tried on one a few weeks ago and the other this past weekend, so I feel like I need to try both on again to make a sound decision. Piece of cake, right? Nope. 

I called one place in New York and they had dress #2, made appointment. Done. The first dress? Not so easy. I literally went on the designer’s website and called boutiques in New York and New Jersey for TWO HOURS. Yes. TWO HOURS. Apparently it’s an older design so many boutiques no longer carry the sample. Finally, one in the middle of New Jersey said they have it. I am either renting a car or traveling 1-1/2 hours each way to try this thing on. But it will be so worth it.

I think I mentioned it a few weeks ago, but I recently read “The Omnivore’s Dilemma” by Michael Pollan. I thought the book was phenomenal. The thing I liked about it is it didn’t polarize your food beliefs. It really just opened your eyes to the issues that we face as food consumers in today’s world. I highly recommend this book for anyone that is curious about what goes into the food that we eat. [shameless plug: check out my full book review on my book review blog]

And lastly, what would a Friday Randomness post be without referencing cats in some way, shape or form? Well, I was watching a video on YouTube today and saw this advertisement for some shakes (for humans) pop up in the corner. However, they have placed cats in the ad very strategically which makes it pretty entertaining [DJ cat rocks].

I think they’ve established their key demographic as crazy cat ladies. I really don’t get the connection between healthy shakes and cats, but whatev.
