Sunday Funday

Nick and I went running at 6:30 this morning.


Say what?

I know – I hardly believe it myself.

If I wasn’t about to leave for church, I’d think I was lying.


But go us! We really want to get into a schedule that works for us, and that’s proving hard to figure out with Maggie. We don’t want to leave her again once we get home from work so running in the morning seems to be the best option.

I actually like running in the morning better than later in the day – it just means that we need to make sure we can get up in time to go on the weekends and a few days during the week.


I’m a cooking machine this weekend! Lots of fun recipes coming soon :) Including some super dark + rich cream cheese brownies.


I’ve got a little time left to cuddle with Maggie before heading to church, and I still need to drink my coffee.


Enjoy your Sunday!

PS: Allison (aka GDW) is running a marathon today!!!

PPS: Jenna Wolf on the Today Show is showcasing a story on my neck-of-the-woods today! So excited to see it. I think she drove / rode a bike on the Blue Ridge Parkway (which is beautiful) and she might have gone to Mountain Lake? That’s where the majority of Dirty Dancing was filmed, and it’s just 10 minutes from us. 


  1. you live near where dirty dancing was filmed? that’s fantastic!

  2. i didnt realize that you lived so close to mountain lake?! we used to go there all the time during the summer when i was growing up, love that place! although that lake isn’t much anymore is it :( so beautiful up there either way!

  3. 6:30 and fun? I can’t make the connection, but good for you! I definitely need motivation to run today

  4. I prefer running in the morning over running in the evening… but you are a better person than I for getting up that early on a Sunday!!!

  5. I give you total props for going out and running period, but at 6:30!? Way to start the day :-) Happy Sunday!

  6. 6:30?? Wow, I need to take tips from you :D I like running in the morning too but morning for me = 10:00 lol

    Have a good rest of the weekend!

  7. Hey congrats!!!

    In America I couldn’t imagine waking up before 8, but now I wake up at 530 every day to work out. Not very impressive seeing as I go to sleep at 9pm… but i LOVE the early start. I hope I can keep that up in the States, although maybe not quite so early :)

    My latest post is about your nutella banana bread! it came out great! even though I didn’t have a lot of the ingredients…

  8. Nice job running so early! I love getting my run out of the way in the morning :-)

  9. Blue Ridge Parkway is GORGEOUS!!!!! Love it! I didn’t know you lived around there?! Very cool!

  10. i prefer morning running too! i love that it energizes me for the rest of the day.. the evening or late afternoon runs i either have no energy for or i cant sleep that night.. hmm..

    good job for trecking out in the wee wee hours of the mornin hehe <3

  11. That’s so great that you’re up and at ’em early on a Sunday morning–what a wonderful feeling! I can’t wait to see some of your forthcoming recipes! :)

  12. nice job on the run, lady!

  13. Congrats on the early am run! It always feels nice to start your day off with a workout.

  14. I wish I was a morning runner! I just feel awful when I try it.

  15. 6:30am? That’s hardcore. But good for you, because as the weather gets hotter, you’ll be glad you got yourself into a groove of running early in the morning, before the sun gets so intense.

    Now show us those brownies!

  16. Running at 6:30 go YOU! That’s awesome-I just love early Sunday workouts!

  17. Wow 6:30 is early. But I’m glad you found something that works for you so that you can get back to running.

  18. Morning running can be really cool. I live in an area with a lot of churches so I enjoy seeing all the old people in their suits and dresses going to church :)

  19. AWww thanks for lovin’ friend! :) And way to go on that early morning run :)
