30 Before 30

Hi Lovelies!

I had a fantastic weekend! Wes and I went to Galveston with my best friend and her husband so that we could run our half marathon. Friday night we stayed up late catching up on each others lives and having some drinks. Saturday we explored the city, picked up our race day things, and laid on the beach. I had forgotten how much I love the ocean. Galveston isn’t nearly as nice as Florida, but it’s still a beach and it’s still the ocean. It was fantastic! Sunday morning came WAY too soon…I guess that’s what you get for not going to bed early the night before your half marathon. Lol! Heather and I did great! We finished the race and in pretty good time for our first race ever. I am so proud of us for making it through even though we only started to run 6 months ago! No judgements on the picture, we just ran 13.1 miles! Haha!

Half Marathon

The Diva’s run was SO much fun. It was almost exclusively ladies and a lot of them were wearing tutus and costumes. There was music, champagne, crowns, and boas…and our medals were pink and sparkly. Best race ever.

This was the pier on the ocean while we were running. It was perfect running weather, cloudy and a little windy. It could have been JUST a little less humid though.


Our half marathon starts off my list of 30 things I want to do before I turn 30. I have seen a bunch of these around the blogging world, and with my 27th birthday coming up in June I figured now was a perfect time to make one.

    Way to go! I love the town of Galveston, but the beach right in the city is bleh. If you go south all the way to San Louis Pass (the southernmost point of Galveston Island), the beach is actually quite beautiful. Golden sand and cleaner-looking water. :)
