Weekend in Photos

It seems like these weekend recaps are the only kind of posts I’ve been able to consistently post lately — sorrrrryyyyy.

No matter how busy I am with work (and life), there is always one constant: I will always document everything I do with pictures. I have always been the ‘one with the camera’ ever since high school…I used to take pictures at school and post them on my friends’ MySpace walls for everyone to see. YUP, MySpace. Hows that for a throwback?

Anyway, that is why I will always post these weekend recaps. If nothing else, this blog serves as a great place for me to document my young adulthood and all the fun it contains.

So without further ado… Continue reading

I’m copping out today, guys.

I haven’t been super great about churning out regular content on the ol’ blog lately…or really at all since I started my job back in January, if we’re being honest. I do enjoy documenting my life via photos in my Weekend posts, but that’s not really all I want this blog to be about. As much as I’m sure y’all love my pictures of dodgeball/pre-run selfies/mimosas…

Couple that with the fact that I’ve started taking on a lot of writing assignments at work that tend to include blog posts, newsletters, social media, and the like…sometimes I just need to veg out and not write write write the same kinds of things as soon as I get home.

That’s why when I saw Janetha posted this “Would you rather” survey a couple weeks ago, I had to jump on board. Would You Rather is always a fun game, and I enjoyed filling this out! Of course, it sat in my drafts pile for weeks while I found the time to actually fill it out and pick pictures to make it slightly less boring… ;) But it’s here now…enjoy! Continue reading

Hi there! I am clearly a little late in posting my weekend update on this lovely Monday. Blame it on a crazy busy Sunday and a busy day at work today. But it was a great weekend filled with a ton of good food and drinks, balanced out by a couple of super active days — I got in 15k steps on Friday and 25k on Sunday! So it had to be documented :)

It started off on Friday evening with an impromptu happy hour with Shannon – Continue reading

It’s no secret that I am very connected to my beach cruiser.

(all my favorite things in one picture ;) )

It’s also no secret that I like races. I’ve participated in my fair share over the past year and a half, since my first 5k in April 2013.

So it’s interesting that all of my races up until this point have only been running races (OK, so the Color Run was mostly walking…and trying to drink wine out of a plastic bag…maybe not my finest fitness moment ;) ).

I have made the decision that for my training for my next half marathon, I will most likely only be running twice a week and using Ultimate Frisbee once a week as my “speed training”. As for my other workouts, I am going to continue strength training but am also looking into other group classes at my gym for cross training.

A few of my coworkers swear by TEAMride, a wildly popular indoor cycling studio here in Sacramento — AKA spin class. My gym has spin classes as well, and I’m most likely going to start trying them out, because…

I have signed up to participate in the Best Buddies Challenge — Hearst Castle! Continue reading

Happy Friday!

Thanks for all of your support and patience with my blog switch! I am really excited about my new name and the new site. Now that I worked out all my design kinks (guess who is now a CSS pro — THIS girl!), I promise you’ll be seeing a lot more content generation.

I have a lot of exciting things coming up, including races and a repeat of last year’s 3-day pre-July 4th juice cleanse! I’m pumped to be doing it again because this time, they include a salad each day, AND three of my coworkers will be doing it too so we will all be HANGRY healthy together. ;) #HealthHappensHere #solidarity Continue reading

Weekend in Photos

Hey friends! Welcome to my new and improved blog, Run Now, Wine Later.

I’m still working out some design kinks, but for the most part you are seeing a new and improved blog!

Like I said back at the ol’ blog, there are a few reasons for the switch:

This phrase truly does epitomize the essence of Katie in a number of ways. It not only highlights what I usually write about in my “healthy living blog” (pretty much every single one of my Weekend in Photos posts is a compilation of workout selfies juxtaposed with pictures of mimosas at brunch)…but it also reflects the philosophy I’ve worked to adopt these past few years:
Get your booty movin’ each morning so that you can earn that glass of wine or beer after work. Eat fruit and granola for breakfast and a salad for lunch so you can indulge on a burger and fries for dinner. Being healthy and happy is not about depriving yourself, but about finding a healthy balance.

Anyway, I have a lot of things planned for this new look and new motto, including upcoming races and new and different fitness challenges. But before we tackle that, let’s kick things off with one of my favorite regular posts… my weekend in photos! Continue reading

On Having a Sprained Foot & “Taking it Easy” at Blend

As you all may remember, a little over two weeks ago I rolled my ankle on an acorn/pinecone/who knows what on my long run.

Pretty much we all can agree it was probably not my smartest choice to continue running another 5 miles after I pulled something in my foot on mile 3. I was in the middle of the trail, what other choice did I have?! I didn’t realize how bad it was until I stopped!!

Ahem. I digress. Continue reading
