Nine miles @ 8:41 average yesterday and a speed workout today!

It lightly snowed for all nine miles, which felt peaceful after a restless night!

Why does 5 minutes of core work feel like it is 45 minutes?  I’ve started enjoying upper and lower body strength workouts, but I’m not sure I will ever find the joy in core work.  Beck loves it when I do core work because that means he can crawl on me the entire time.

When Brooke sat down in the chair to get her hair cut, the hairdresser asked her what she wanted and told her that she wanted her hair cut like mine.

Yes, it did make my decade.  Skye then told the hairdresser that she wanted her hair to look like Brooke’s, so now the three of us have similar hair.

The first thing Skye said when she woke up was that she couldn’t wait to go to our neighbors to show off her hair to her bf (that stands for both best friend and boyfriend in Skye’s mind… she tells us all of the time she is going to marry him;).

I opened the dryer and saw a pen sitting there… my heart sunk.  ALL OF MY FAVORITE CLOTHES were in this wash, and somehow the pen did not explode in the dryer (like they have way too many times… I’m terrible at checking pockets).  Lucky, lucky day.

Dinner involved our favorite panini= cheese, guac, bacon, and tomatoes (usually dipped into ranch).

Family favorite.

I always have these in my fridge, and last night they were the best post-dinner treat.

A big highlight was my mom coming over and beating us all at ping pong.  She is almost 70, and there is still no chance to beat her at ping pong.

Three random things before I let you go…

*Is it normal that I was all packed and ready to go TWO weeks before Andrew and I leave on our trip?

*Skye wants me to tell you that the best method for putting on a coat is to start with putting your hood on first followed by your arms…

*I found this video of my brother and posted it on IG, but I need it here permanently.  This is when California Adventure first opened, and he was racing to beat the crowds for the cars ride.  You aren’t allowed to run there, but I’m not sure my sprint could even keep up with his speed walking.


Doing 5 minutes of what type of exercise feels like 45 minutes to you?

Any good luck in your life lately?

Pack early or right before?

What’s your running weather like this week?  How many layers are you needing for your runs?

(shorts, shirt, socks) I didn’t feel like sweating, but I did it anyway. The kids weren’t awake after the first 30-minute class, and I finally got into my groove so I took another right after! Along with a bit of upper body strength later on in the morning. I didn’t really document much from the … Continue Reading

(Leggings, top, earband, and shoes) The trails were mostly clear, which meant Andrew could join me on his mountain bike.   He pushes me to go so much faster on the trails than I normally do.  I did this same trail two weeks ago and did 10 miles @ 9:39 average pace and then did … Continue Reading

(Tank, shorts, bra, and socks) 45-minutes on the bike to start my morning! Robin will always be my #1 on here. 15 minutes of chest/back. Trader Joe’s with Skye. Every time we go there… The best lunch around. Warm enough to play outside. Had the best pizza with friends.  We need one of these ovens! … Continue Reading

It’s like we ALMOST got to run with Emilee:).   At the end of our run, Emilee drove by and we got to chat with her for a few minutes.  She is thinking she will be back running again soon! 7 miles @ 8:45 average + 20-minute strength for runners class on the Peloton app! … Continue Reading

(Zip-up ((mine is the Boston version)), leggings, headband, shoes ((the Novablast 2 worked so well with speed, and I had zero plantar pain during or after)) It felt so good to be with this amazing group again. I’ve blogged for over eleven years now, and for that same amount of time I have had people … Continue Reading

(Shorts, tank, bra) New bike PR (by 2… I barely made it ha)! If you are looking for a new 45-minute PR on the Peloton, try Olivia Amato HIIT & Hills from 12/13/21.  It was SO so hard.  Even her recoveries are rough. I am very thankful for this fan that I keep 6 inches … Continue Reading
