I had a cousin date tonight. This girl is a rockstar. She is taking 18 credits, works 18 hours a week, runs, averages 12 dates a week and still manages to hang out with her best friend….that’s me if you didn’t get it.
I met her on campus at BYU, my old stomping grounds, and it was so fun to remember the good ol’ days.
We look a lot alike….mom, is there something your not telling me?
She treated me to round 1 of dinner. Jamba smoothie with granola.
After we drank our smoothie we were freezing. Naturally, we walked to the other side of the food court and got hot chocolate. Why do they put candy by the cash register. It is like they are forcing you to salivate and crave the sugary goodness while you are waiting in line. Marketers are out to get me and give me diabetes.
I came home and Billster took me to get some cold running weather gear. I am taking my running outside this morning. Billy set up for me to run with one of his best buddies. 2:25 marathoner and runs a 4:19 mile. I am scared for my life. Literally, I am scared. We don’t get stronger unless we challenge ourselves and do things that scare us. Like running in freezing temperatures in a dark canyon with a white kenyan.
Billy is dropping us off @ 6 a.m. fifteen miles up a canyon and we are running back to our house. I will do a few miles of hills (hopefully, if I am still alive) on the treadmill when I get back. I am scoring big time…..hours of running training and technique from an elite athlete, don’t mind if I do.
What do you think of the gear? The pink shirt has made its appearance many times on the blog but the other stuff is new since I never run out in the cold I decided I need to suck it up and do it once in a while.
The third course of dinner was a meal for champions, or a five year old. Chocolate milk with a scoop of glutamine and a pb/banana panini.
Early bed time, I needed to prepare for a booty whipping.
No SCHOOL!! The rest of the day will be spent eating, reading and catching up on hulu!!!
Are you close with your cousins? How many do you have
Do you run with other people?
-Nope, but I am thinking that by training with stronger/better runners I am going to see some major improvements.
Do you have Monday off from work?
-4 day weekend, the joys of being a teacher.
-I got the All Fruit Five Fruit Frenzy and it was heaven. I used to work at a smoothie place in high school and I can make a mean smoothie.
