I hope your Tuesday is off to a great start! I’ve got a few tangents for you today.
-Monday morning there was a recovery run and some core work on the schedule. It is always crazy to me that whenever I am crazy sore for a few days after a hard run or race that my legs feel best when I am running compared to the rest of the day when I am not running. Running really is the best medicine:)
-My mom invited us out to lunch and I had the cascabella salad at 180 Tacos. Below Brooke is telling my sister all about her pre-school. PS if you find me crying in a parking lot in a few weeks it is because all of the sudden Brooke is old enough to be hitting up school and away from me. Yes, I have issues.
-Speaking of Megan, she sent me this picture of us from three years ago. PS it is really fun to be 9 months pregnant in 93 degree weather with no AC at your house. I am pretty sure I lived in the pool that summer.
-Brooke knows the proper way to eat cake—> eat the top 1/3rd of it because the frosting to cake ratio is dead on that way.
-My cute friend Amber transformed a pair of socks from Target (75 cents) into the perfect arm warmers for the race. Brilliant. She didn’t even have to feel bad about tossing them when she got too warm for them a few miles in.
-You can check out my current favorite core moves for runners HERE!
-I’ve been wearing my race shirt from this weekend’s race as much as possible. Every now and then I score a really great/comfortable/one that actually fits race shirt and wear it daily until I get my next favorite t-shirt.
-I wonder why when Brooke has my phone she takes selfies of our feet? Ps you are welcome for blurring out my toes in this picture… they were wrecked after all of the downhill running on Saturday. Wrecked.
–Natalie is looking gorgeous in her Hungry shirt at Lake Tahoe!
-She really has a thing for hugging statues.
-And spending time with her this little man…
