First of all, it looks like we had more treadmill lovers out there than I thought.
Anyone interested in a blogger get-together in Utah and we can use my gym to form a circle of treadmills so we can all see each other and talk as we are on the treadmill being the awesome-sauce runners that we are!!
Billy already said he would refill our water bottles when we needed and bring us gu’s and shot blocks every two miles.
After our run we can foam roll and take a big communal ice bath. One step too far, I know.

The bff’s and I try to get together for a girls dinner once a month. We used to go out and eat but then we decided to get married and have kids and stuff so now we are poor and we cook for each other.
Sarah made us this awesome soup tonight. Seriously, the best chicken tortilla soup I have ever had it. Make it now, or tonight I guess since I post at 5 a.m.
We realized we are grown-ups all of the sudden because we were talking about insurance, talking about reading books for fun and sharing budgeting tips. What is happening to me. Did you know it is almost my birthday…..
Look what I got in the mail today?!?! My cute blogger bff Pixie sent me Harry and David goodies….made my day. Notice the missing pear slot…..I ate it as soon as I opened the box. Have you ever tried Harry and David……these pears melt in your mouth.
What is your favorite type of music to listen to while you drive?
-I love listening to Death Cab, Coldplay, Jack Johnson, Snow Patrol and Sarah McLachlan as I drive. I love the chill type of music for driving but crazy fast upbeat music for running.
What sort of things make you feel like you are older than you thought?
-Talking about responsible things, going to bed at nine, secretly watching ‘I Love Lucy’ in my free time and hitting up the early-bird special at Cracker Barrel.
What is your favorite Fuel for long runs?
-LOVE SHOT BLOCKS with a passion….it is like candy with ridiculous amounts of electrolytes. I use gummy bears or starbursts when I have spend my monthly budget on running shoes and ice cream…..quick energy for a lot cheaper. Gatorade is delicious too. But I HATE gu’s….they make me throw up a little.
