Feels Like Spring 

It’s been feeling like spring up and Dow the East Coast, which is why I should have seen allergies coming right behind it. More on that in a bit. 

First, let’s talk wedding! There’s some rule in blogging that you’re not supposed to talk about your wedding, but I don’t really understand that. Weddings seem to be one of those things everyone is curious about and has an opinion about. 

A few weekends ago my fiancé, my parents and I went to a tasting for our food! It was super exciting because we were there with a bunch of other couples who are also getting married at our same venue this year. So we really got a sense of what the food would taste like in a big group. 

Each table was designed by different event designers. We were seated at a table that was designed by my event designer! 

  
My mom loved this table for a fun brunch, but I’m opting for something that will compliment the natural beauty of the Outer Banks. 
I really liked the color scheme of this table 

  
The natural greens and succulents reminded me of my favorite fall days at the beach! 

The food we tasted was amazing! It was so good I took no pictures! It’s going to be so hard to pick, although J and I have a few favorites. We both love seafood, so there will be plenty of that! They did such a great job of showcasing North Carolina seafood. I loved that!

This was Friday night, and also when I started feeling a little off. My throat was tight and scratchy. It only got worse on Saturday when I went to Va Beach for packet pick up for my half marathon. A Nor’easter was coming in, so it was windy, rainy and cold. I don’t think that was helping. J ran out to get me a pre-race dinner, but I just felt progressively worse. When I woke up on Sunday I had chills, a completely stuffed nose and I knew I couldn’t run. I was disappointed, because I think if I had felt okay I could have PRed. Still, rest was the best option. 

We checked out early and headed home. 

Now I’m focusing on the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler which is this Sunday! Looking to PR there!
