You know that you are starting to be desensitized to winter when 25 degrees for your morning run feels quite nice and you even get a little hot while you are out there.
Six of us showed up to run up the canyon for 7.5 miles together to celebrate Josse’s birthday. It snowed for pretty much the entire run (and then for the rest of the day). There were very few footprints to find anywhere once we got in the canyon with about an inch of fresh snow. It felt like the whole world was quiet, besides us, this morning. Dare I say, I might actually be really enjoying winter running lately?!
Beyond amazing women right here. PS does anybody else notice that running on fresh snow feels kind of like running on sand at times, my calves were burning 2 miles into the run. Just hoping that maybe running in the snow will give me a calf muscle or two, that would be nice.
Pre-run= a small bowl of Honey-Nut Cheerios and post run= a bagel with a little bit of peanut butter (sad story… we were out of almond butter so I had to adjust;), bananas and raspberries. Andrew thought the raspberries were strange, I thought they were delicious.
After seeing my bagel, Brooke requested to try the same thing (minus the raspberries). Her face looks shocked but I think that really means that she loves it.
Andrew has become really skilled with his ability to pretend that the different Beanie Babies really are animals.
Before Knox left to go to his mom’s house we played a little bit of hide and go seek. It’s a shame that Beretta gives away our hiding spot every single time.
Oh and these socks are a year-round thing for Brooke. I forgot who gave these to Brooke but they are the first thing to be worn after laundry day.
I stayed home to get some work done and Andrew and Brooke went out for some errands and play time. This is the picture he sent to me.
They came home and we hung out for a bit.
They did stop at Costco= we have some really good food now. Hallelujah.
And a random memory about this song that came on today. Flashback to high school when my boyfriend and I broke up. There was a dance that coming weekend that I was supposed to go to with him (but we broke up so that was off) so my sister packed up her car and drove me down to Vegas for a weekend of shopping, swimming and eating out. She’s a good one. We listened to this song on repeat for at least 2 hours and tried to memorize every word. Whenever I hear this song it reminds me of our trip together.
How was your run today?!?
What day do you grocery shop? Whenever you need to? Once a week, twice a week?
Favorite nut butter and brand of nut butter?!
