I am actually addicted to your Worst Running Outfit pictures and I may make you guys send them to me year round because they make me so happy! Here are a few more:
My friend and I live in San Francisco, and always run Bay to Breakers in costume. This year we decided to dress up as unicorns, and made the attached costume. The outfits were amazing, BUT running 7 miles with a hood on in the heat was terrible, we were drenched in sweat and couldn’t take the hood off. When we ended I was so overheated, and had a plastic unicorn horn attached to my head. Worth the pain… but never again!
I ran in a Awesome 80’s 10k and was leaving super early in the morning. While tucking my 8 yr old son in bed the night before I was telling him I would be gone when he woke up. He asked me to come give him a kiss before I left. So the next morning I was about to leave when I remembered to run back upstairs, tip toe into his room, and give him a kiss on the forehead. He stirred in his sleep then opened his eyes right as I was leaning down to kiss him and he shrieked AAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!! I think he thought some freak had snuck into his room and was about to kidnap him. He did not appreciate me laughing hysterically at him and told me, “You look so weird Mom, that is the worst thing you have ever worn.” I told him I was going to pick him up from school on Monday dressed like that. Lol
For the sake of my son’s mental health please help me find some cute normal running clothes Brooks. :)
How to keep Brooke entertained for a solid 10 minutes so that I can eat my dinner.
Put a little bit of water on the coffee table and she will live happily ever after playing with it.
She takes it very seriously.
Dinner was special last night. I know you are thinking, ‘Janae that is what you have been eating 5 trillion times a week lately, what is so special about that?’
Rest assured… there was something very special about this chicken, sweet potato and broccoli mixture.
The special ingredient was this tomato-less salsa. (half of the jar was added to the potato after the picture)
They had this as a sample last time I was at Trader Joe’s and the second I tasted it I grabbed a jar (and another sample) and put it in my cart. Sweet salsa. Yes.
Yesterday I got to go talk to a bunch of teenagers about running. I kind of love sharing my passion for running with other people if you couldn’t tell. There were other speakers there that were incredible and of course food after. I have to tell you about this salad because you actually do have to make it if you want to be happy.
-Romaine, Kale and Spinach
-Sunflower seeds, pecans and pumpkin seeds
The dressing was the Good Seasons mix that comes in a box in salad dressing aisle.
The nutrition speaker really got me thinking about why we eat the way that we eat? I REALLY wanted to hear from you guys about what thoughts go through your head when you are thinking about what to prepare or eat for your meals and snacks. What plays a role in deciding what you buy at the grocery store?
Is it because….
-You eat the foods you do based on the nutrients in them?
-The amount of calories? Fat grams?
-Out of habit…you’ve just always eaten the way that you eat?
-Because that is what your diet tells you to eat?
-It is convenient?
-It sounds good?
-It is cheap… on sale?
-It is what your family wants to eat?
-You choose your meal and snacks based on what feels ‘safe’ to you?
-Do you base the foods you eat on the amount of preservatives or chemicals in them?
-You stick to whole foods?
-You choose foods that you know will best fuel you for your workouts or run?
Just one question today but I really want to hear from you…. Why do you eat the foods that you eat?
