Usually I wake up after the first mile of my run but today I don’t think I really woke up until I opened the front door after I was finished. I remember it was hot (which required drinking this large glass of water in 12 seconds) and I really liked the Kinvarra 4s that Saucony sent me (Billy got a pair too and he is obsessed with them) but other than that it was a blur. A good blur. Actually now that I think about it I do remember a squirrel that scared me really bad… I think he was trying to attack me.
(My fingernail polish is always chipped. I have just come to accept it.)
I was definitely awake during the foam rolling, stretching and 8 minute abs afterwards.
Before we move on about anything. Guess who I will be partying with on Friday?!?!
(My niece, Curly, when she was just a little baby)
Billy has finals. I guess I am distracting and he would rather hang out with me and Brooker than study sooooo that means I go to Utah so he can focus completely on school. I am going to be staying with my sister which Brooke is going to love. She will have other kids to play with 24/7…. it is going to be a good time.
I am sure we will practice our weird human tricks.
And for the second part of finals I am going to go down to Arizona to stay with my brother and his wife. They have two kids so once again Brooke will be in heaven.
This is the first time I will be flying with Brooke on buddy passes, cross your fingers we make all 20 planes that we will have to take.
I forgot to show you yesterday that we put Brooke’s crib together (okay, Billy put the crib together but I put the lamp together). She has been sleeping in a mini crib for a while so she graduated up to a big one and slept in until 9 a.m. this morning. I think she likes it.
And a picture of Brooke attacking her stuffed Simba yesterday while sitting in her favorite position (she sits like that for a good chunk of the day).
I had goosebumps the entire time I read the article After Boston: Run the Recovery. It is written by an Olympic marathon trials qualifier and it is absolutely incredible. ‘Why running matters NOW more than ever.’
My favorite part from the article:
Morning runners: how long does it take you from the time you wake up to get outside and run?
-I woke up late this morning so I was literally out the door 4 minutes after I woke up.
Are you a morning runner or an evening runner? What are the pros and cons about the time that you run?
What color(s) are your current running shoes?
Anyone in school reading? Are finals coming up for you?
