We made it to Arizona yesterday afternoon!

10 miles done and done in the morning.  For some reason it felt crazy cold out but in a few months I’ll be missing these brisk mornings when the sun is trying to eat me alive during my run;)

First 7 miles were done at an easy pace and then I had a fast finish scheduled for the last three miles.  I did those at a 7:07 average.

Ready for her St. Patrick’s Day party.

An omelette with cheese, mushrooms, peppers, spinach and bacon for me…

Best little helper.

Ready to get her vacation on…

Brooke is staying with my sister (and Knox is with his mom) for our quick trip to Arizona so I dropped her off!

And then we made it to the airport.

Skye was a little unsure about getting on the airplane.

Things went well for her… I fed her during the takeoff and landing.  We had one blowout and one spit up all over me but she was pretty happy the whole time.

My sis-in-law picked us up and then once my brother was off work they took us to one of their favorites—>  Backyard Taco!

The crazy potato was beyond good and their salsa bar was heaven.

Andrew and my brother picked up Bosa donuts on the way home so I got my fix.

PS they have an awesome home gym so it is motivating me to get some weights in after my easy run today.

What are three things that you are doing today?

A rainy 40 minute easy run (4.78 miles) for me yesterday morning.  I managed to step in a huge puddle about 5 minutes into my run so that was fun to run with soaking wet shoes;) PS when I run in the rain, I put my phone in a ziplock! After getting the kids to … Continue Reading

Well, that was painful, it made me afraid and somehow also excited to race a 5k again in the future.  That short fast stuff is HARD! I started with a 2 mile warm-up at an 8:58 average pace and then stopped to switch shoes, take off my long sleeve top (it was 50 degrees), do … Continue Reading

I’ve got a new SKYE UPDATE for you over HERE! ————————————————————————– First, and most importantly… it is ANDREW’S BIRTHDAY so please wish him a happy birthday in the comments and I’ll read them to him while he is driving us to In-N-Out (his favorite) today to eat. HAPPY 30TH ANDREW.  You are my everything! I’ve … Continue Reading

THAT TIME CHANGE was rough (for everyone in our family;).  It’s crazy how one hour can just mix it all up so much.  I got out for the first half of my run, took Brooke to school and then finished up the second half of my run after that.  It’s crazy how on Saturday I … Continue Reading

Good morning!  It’s the start of another week (even though Andrew thinks Sunday is the start of the week).  If you missed out on last week’s most viewed posts, here they are! *That workout was hard but a confidence builder + the do-do rule + time to celebrate *Wise Advice for My Perfectionism Problem + … Continue Reading

Workouts are approximately 11 times more enjoyable when Josse is there compared to doing them on my own.  She ran 17 miles the day before (her marathon is coming up) so we didn’t stick together for the entire workout but most of it we did. March weather is pure heaven. We started off with a … Continue Reading
