Yesterday, Billy and I had our longest run ever together. We woke up at about 9 and waited around the house for the weather to get warmer so that we wouldn’t freeze to death. We realized it was never ever going to warm up. I begged Billy to run side by side with me on our treadmill but we couldn’t agree on a show to watch as we ran so we took our run outside;)
14 miles with an average pace of 8:18. Temperature: painful. First 7 miles hurt mentally but every mile after that got better and better. Awesome to have my bff running with me and picturing us running together until we are 115.
I am still completely chilled to the bone and spent a good hour in front of the heat lamp with my chocolate milk/glutamine combo in the form of HOT (burning your throat) chocolate. Note to self: Wear running tights if it is cold.
Costco. They had the best samples ever. Pizza, hummus, candy, chocolate, soup, wraps, berries with whipped cream and ten other things that I can’t remember.
Time for the grand finale…..I have not cut/colored/touched my hair for a good 8 months. Yesterday was the day to whip out the box dye and scizzors and get busy.
Just what you wanted to see this morning. Billy found it especially attractive.
I think I may have mentioned this approximately 8 million times on the blog, but pizza is the only proper way to refuel after a long run. Especially when it is from Papa Johns, it is the size of your head and you dip it into their garlic-butter dip. I have always wanted someone to dare me to take a straight up shot of the little butter filled cup so that I could say I HAD to do it instead of me just WANTING to do it and people thinking I am weird because of it.
The truly BEST part of the day…..family is here from AZ. My bro and his wife are here for a few days and you better believe we will be spending all of non-working/school time with them.
They are our favorite late night/fro-yo eating partners. Remember how I said on Friday that ice cream lost its appeal to me now that it is cold? I got over that real quick and enjoyed every bite last night.
What was the HIGHLIGHT of your Saturday?
Do you color your hair? Do you have a ‘go to’ hair stylist?
-The sister went to hair school and has done my hair ever since.
Who is your FAVORITE person to go running with?
