1.  It was just Knox and me yesterday morning so my run was on the treadmill.  Eight miles and still rocking the tape to help me to stay away from the deck of the treadmill so I don’t sacrifice my form while I run.  Thanks to Knox for the picture.  One of my favorite tips for the treadmill is to pay around with the numbers… I was on my 3 minutes at conversation pace followed by 2 minutes at interval pace rotation (you can figure out your paces here).  The time flew by because I was switching up things all over the place.

2.  Yep.

Its fine i ran today

3.  The kids had another soccer game yesterday which was fun because we were able to see Brooke!  All of Brooke’s other side of the family was there and we all talk very easily.  I’ve always had the opinion that there is no reason to not be friendly, happy and nice to each other.  I’m very glad because it is so nice especially at events like yesterday.  Drama-free… hallelujah.  I don’t deal well with drama.  And most important, the best thing for the kids.

5.  The car seat swap from one car to the other… might as well just carry the car seat with the child in it right?  PS Knox isn’t messing around with his soccer cleats.

6.  I had a work lunch meeting yesterday afternoon at Tsunami and it was amazing.  They have the best sushi in Utah.  We split a bunch of rolls and then also a cucumber salad, edamame and some teriyaki chicken.  I adore sushi.

7.  While I was out I came across Smurf treats for Knox.  He was too happy looking at the bag to look at the camera:)

9.  A little while later my parents called us up to join them for a double date.  We cannot say no to that.  Ever.

12.  If you don’t have a drive-thru for delicious cookies near you, maybe think about starting one yourself in your city because you will make a lot of money from people like me.  They probably make a 99% profit off of these cookies but I don’t care, they are amazing.

-Church, a lazy Sunday afternoon (Brooke comes home!) and dinner at a friend’s house!

8 miles while listening to Up & Vanished (I’m weird and I really enjoy mystery podcasts like Serial… even if they freak me out). COLD ENOUGH FOR GLOVES!?!? Strength training is my favorite thing to multi-task… chest and glutes all at once. They were really happy to see me when I got home;) The sunglasses … Continue Reading

The kids were ready to go play some soccer last night and score a bunch of goals when all of the sudden it started pouring rain when we got to the field.   We decided the change of plans in our evening called for some pasta instead. Brooke ordered some noodles and asked for some … Continue Reading

Thursday afternoon is here! The morning started out very cuddly… usually Brooke is up first but today she was all about sleeping in. She took a selfie while I was doing her hair. Ready to party. Eight mile run together in my favorite canyon in the world. Started running up here when I was 12 … Continue Reading

Good Morning!!! Running partners united!  It’s been a few weeks since our last run together and it was good to be back.  Josse has been dealing with some ankle problems lately so she took a bit of time off and is back in action.  Six miles total and a great conversation the whole way. Josse … Continue Reading

Just a normal Tuesday morning around our house yesterday. One of the many beauties about running… you can do it anywhere.  I had to drop off my car for some work yesterday so I just went out and ran 7 miles while my car was being worked on and then boom… my car was done … Continue Reading

When it is 68 degrees outside you make sure to get outside for a bike ride.   And then you get to work on the recent library book rental stack.   I’m trying to snack more on raw veggies.  My sister snacks on raw veggies all day long and she is my example.  I just … Continue Reading
