The race isn’t happening this weekend… We originally planned on driving the 3.5 hours south to make it to a half marathon expo yesterday (the race is this morning) but we didn’t go.   My family is going through some tough stuff right now (I’m always pretty open about my personal lows but can’t always share what everyone is going through) and when we got the phone call yesterday to be together, we went straight to be with everyone yesterday.  Family > running.  Always.  I really don’t have a lot to say today other than that but I have a few pictures from the day.

No run yesterday but we were all pretty drained by the end of the day.

Hung out sitting on the ground for most of the day.

Yeah, that’s a lot of snow.

Makes my heart melt:

Three amazing snacks from the day:

1. Celery with pb (my dad even took off the celery strings:)

2.  Pistachios.  These are so good.

3.  By far the best chocolate at See’s Candy—>  marshmallow, chocolate and caramel.

By the time we left we were ready for dinner.  Ate in the car, it was delicious.

The main reason we go to Chic-fil-A… this sauce.

Soccer starts soon so she is getting ready with her stretches.

For those of you loving This Is Us, they made an apology for making us cry during every episode.

I’ll be back tomorrow morning.  Need a good sweat this morning and then the rest of the day with family.  I hope your weekend is a beautiful one!

Our Thursday morning looked like this below.  Picture taken by my sister.  A few years ago a picture that my sister took of me running was in the Women’s Running Magazine (she took it with her phone) so since then she likes to call herself a ‘published photographer’.  She has quite the skills:) My sister … Continue Reading

You know that if your day is starting out at a bakery, that it will most likely be a really great day. It’s kind of our tradition now to pick up a donut the mornings Knox comes home.  We didn’t mean to start this tradition but it just happened and I am the last person … Continue Reading

We were going to go to the gym to get our run together this morning but Brooke had a playdate so we decided to hit up the river trail for our run instead.  When the weather is in the 50s and there is some great cloud cover, you kind of have to take it outside. … Continue Reading

Ten miles was just what my Monday needed.  I went with a St. Patrick’s Day theme because I thought the kids would think my socks were cool:)  I don’t think they noticed but that’s okay.  Never ever moving away from these mountains. First, a minor rewind to first thing in the morning.  Nothing like trampoline … Continue Reading
