Quick Updates

Hello readers! Look, two posts in one week! Hopefully I am on my way back to a routine.

I just wanted to post a few quick updates...

Running--I have been keeping up with running 3-4 times a week in training for the big Half Marathon and my longest distance is now 10 miles!!! Woohoo! Hubs and I did it last was a real slow pace but we kept running the whole way. I felt so proud and now I truly feel like I can do the Half Marathon...just have to build my strength until then! I am doing the race with two best friends and now we are starting to talk about details of the race weekend...which is making me nervous! But I am so excited and can't believe that a year ago I could not even run a mile. I wish I had tried this years ago, though I don't think I was really ready to go for it then. Wish me luck as I keep training!

Martin + Osa Promo Code--M+O has been having some crazy good promotions. Every time I turn around they are running a new code or event! Right now they are running a Friends and Family event through 9/20 and is good for 30% off any purchase when you enter this code at Checkout: 99400044. I recently ordered a pair of the Slim FIt jeans that were in the Sale Section, just to try...and I really like them! I went with the bigger of the two sizes I am usually between and while they have a little room at the waist, they fit in the knees and legs where the leg is Slim...I also got the sweater I posted about last week and can't wait to wear it!

Coats--So, in the flurry of packing, we had to pack 2 suitcases for stuff through October, and the rest went in the moving van. Well, I very smartly packed a Patagonia rain jacket in case of rain, but strangely I didn't pack ANY other coat for the next month. And um, Fall is definitely here. I want to buy a fall coat that doesn't double up something already in my wardrobe so when my coats arrive it will supplement what I have. I was thinking a shorter, maybe quilted type coat? Or just something thats not a long wool coat. Do you have any suggestions? I can't have it break the bank. Please post ideas of a nice warm layer!

Thanks everyone...hope everyone is having a peaceful day today and a happy weekend.


  1. Hey, where is your half marathon?? Congrats on your training and good luck!!!

  2. If you can do 10 miles - you can finish the half marathon easily. Good luck to you.

  3. Thanks guys!

    My Half Marathon is October 18 in SF, the Nike Women's Marathon/Half. So...just about 4-5 weeks away!

  4. Hi Liz,

    I have been reading your blog for a while and I really enjoy it! I know you moved back east, I am actually from the Boston area (north of Boston.) I was in J.Crew today in Burlington and the SA asked if I wanted to do a JCA shopping party (I don't know how she knew I read the JCA blog, but she is very excited about doing an event). I don't know if you are in my area or not but I thought I would check. Can you email me - sriomac at gmail dot com
