Weekend in Michigan

Quick update before work. Before the craziness of school starts, I took a long weekend trip to Michigan. Ahh summer in Michigan. It really is magical!

FullSizeRender (52)So that I didn’t have to run long in Michigan, I ran 18 on Thursday morning before work. Sometimes I snapchat and run. Helps the time go by.FullSizeRender (51)

My route was awful. 3.5 miles out and back. 2 miles out with Brent and back. Another 3.5 out and back. Ran it nice and slow. The way a long run is supposed to go.


Running Thursday morning was worth it so that I could spend the weekend hanging out with these guys…

I did manage to get a little bit of running in on Saturday and Sunday. Wasn’t too humid, and it was a nice change of scenery. Mama wanted me to add a picture of me “coriendo en Michigan.”

Could my colors be any more obnoxious?

And Detroit Airport, I’m impressed with your store options!


This week I’m running mostly easy miles. Ellen, Marta, Peter and I are running Arroyo Creek Half on Sunday. It’s probably gonna be hot, but hoping it isn’t brutal. Although it wouldn’t be a Cristina race without some bad weather conditions. Hoping to run fast! It’ll be my last weekend before staff arrives to school on MONDAY.

I’ll be back with a race recap on Sunday!
