This weekend, I will…

by Erika Torres

Run 8 miles

I’ve definitely been losing my running mojo. Perhaps I overworked myself with trying to train for a half marathon and doing two back-to-back months of unlimited barre classes (I’ve done 46 classes in the past two months). I have small aches and pains that I’m hoping will go away.

Go Wine Tasting

What I think it will look like:

What it will actually look like:

My friends and I rented a party bus for a wine tasting trip to Temecula to celebrate three of our birthdays. While Napa is for the sophisticated wine drinker, Temecula is definitely more for the girls who just want to drink and get tipsy and can’t really tell that there is a woodsy cherry oak flavor on the back palate. It’s perfect for us!

*True story*: My friends and I once snuck in a box of wine to the movie theater and we had to leave halfway through the movie because one of us threw up.

It’s a jam packed weekend. Good thing I have tomorrow off work!

I just saw a Groupon for wine tasting but we’ve unfortunately hit our max on the entertainment budget for the month. How was the 8 miler on your semi-injuries? Also, Pinterest has been wonderful for me as a non-creative person. I get so many easy ideas and recipes from there! It can be a bit of a time waster if I’m not careful…

Wow! What a weekend. Boxes of wine and most things don’t mix well. 😉

I remember those days vey well. They were quite dangerous and lead me towards trouble many a night. 🙂

8 miles! That’s awesome! I’m doing 7 miles this weekend, and I’m not really looking forward to it.

I find running enthusiasm sure has some peaks and valleys. One week I’ll cruise through my runs, feeling all strong and epic. The next week (this week) I feel so creaky and achy that every step takes some serious willpower. You’ll get back into it, you might need to give yourself some rest time though.

You and your friends sound awesome! I think we would definitely get along 🙂 Have fun this weekend! It’s my birthday too so I’ll be celebrating as well!

A lot of wishes to achieve. Best of luck.

my honest answer April 27, 2012 - 4:08 am

How on earth do you ‘snuck’ a box one wine in?! One of you must have looked very pregnant with a very square baby!

Teacher Girl April 26, 2012 - 7:49 pm

Omg, that wine story… we would get along just perfectly IRL! =)
