The family fun run did not happen. As you can see below, Billy is putting the carseat jogging stroller adapter back into the box to ship it back to REI. The jogging stroller we have is from my sister and she used it for all three of her kids and it is still in AWESOME condition and works perfect but since it is an older model it doesn’t have the option to use the carseat adapter. Four more months until Brooke’s neck is strong enough to use the baby jogger and Family Fun Runs can occur. It’s okay to cry… I did.
Billy knew I really wanted to get outside for the first time in 6.5 weeks to run and so he watched Brooke while I went exploring. There is an awesome trail that is crazy long (10 miles with NO stops) and full of other bikers, walkers and runners in our city. I was able to see people the entire time I was running which made me feel incredibly safe even though I was running at a random time (11 am).
I will just be sticking to the treadmill during the week when Brooke naps and run outside on Saturdays while Billy is with Brooke making me pancakes. I always forget this after I do a bunch of treadmill running but running outside is much harder physically (much easier mentally) for me even though I put my treadmill incline on a 1.5% incline.
I really wanted an omelet and pancakes when I got home so I went big and had a veggie/cheese/turkey omelet and a banana/chocolate chip pancake.
I am pretty sure I could spend 20 minutes in the $1 section of Target. They have the coolest stuff in that little area and I am always amazed that it is so cheap. Brooke’s first Trick or Treat bag. Is it weird if I get one too and hold it out for people to fill for me too when we go trick or treating? Even if it is, it won’t stop me.
I think Girls’ nights should be a monthly requirement. Billy can only take so much of me talking about babies, the Kardashians and debates over the best cake flavors so it is a win-win for both of us. Plus all of our husbands hung out and watched football while eating pizza, chicken wings and chips.
We went to an awesome dinner and had chicken salad in a wonton shell thingee, fruit, rolls and salad. I am glad they kept it light for dinner because there was something much more important in store for us.
What dreams are made of.
Each table (there were probably 25 different tables) had a beautiful cake in the center and you walked around and got a bunch of different samples of the ones you wanted. I got an awesome interval workout in just from running to each different table. I was very worried, stressed and nervous that some of the cakes I wanted to try would run out and so I kicked my heels off and sprinted.
These are a few of the cakes that we all sampled. The cake from our table was my favorite, it was a chocolate, whipped cream, caramel and banana cake. As you know, I am a huge fan of any dessert that has a million different components so this cake was meant for me. I think it would have been 100% perfect if they added a layer of Milky Ways and hot fudge so I will just have to make that combination at home.
Wouldn’t an ice cream themed party be fun? You could have different ice cream flavors and toppings at each table… think of the possibilities.
Do you have running trails near you? Do you feel safe on them? Are there usually a lot of other people using them?
What was the last cake flavor that you had? What is the most interesting cake flavor that you have ever had?
Is running on the treadmill harder or easier for you mentally? Physically?
