Gosh Monday mornings can be tough, especially after such a great weekend. It was one of those weekends where I feel we attained the perfect balance of doing and relaxing. Yesterday I made burgers and we had our first proper cookout of the year. It was so much fun and the first year where I felt that the children enjoyed it as much as the adults. They behaved at the table and ate a bit of everything – result!
As MM and Mike caught up on some of the FA Cup games I attempted to compile a new playlist for my race this weekend. I enjoy running with music but for my last half I opted to run without – I did enjoy soaking up the atmosphere but by mile 8 I was craving a distraction – so this time I’m taking the shuffle. I get really lazy with playlists. MM creates them for every event – road trips, parties, birthdays – they’re his mixed tapes. So knowing how crucial the right songs can be, I decided to take my time and pick out some top tunes – I even bought a couple of new albums – David Guetta and Madonna’s new MDNA, plus a couple of oldies that I knew would spur me on. Every time I hear Like A Prayer it makes the hairs on my neck stand up – I love it and hopefully it will put an extra spring in my step on Sunday.
As I readied myself this morning I fortunately remembered I had a meeting with a new web designer. It’s very exciting at Halcyon Media LLC at the moment as we are getting ready to launch new magazine title in September and a new website is required to support it. It’s good for everyone to start new projects, there is an air of nervous excitement, and the office is rising to the challenge. I can’t wait to let you know more about it as we make progress!
Today I am wearing one of my favorite Boden tunics. It’s a couple of years old – in fact SS 2009 I think – but there is a similar glam jersey tunic in their new summer line. I’m wearing the fabulous tunic in spearmint and I love it more every time I wear it – I do like the big prints – and I paired it with my sand Tory Burch Revas.
Let me know what your favorite running songs are so I can add them to my playlist!
