DANG….I felt more exhausted after my team’s meet yesterday than I would have been if I ran it myself. It was 89 degrees (which is pure crazy for this time of year in Utah) and the course wasn’t marked as well as I’d hoped but overall it was a success.
One of my girls took FIRST OVERALL (4 schools)!! Her final kick at the end made me cry a little. My boys also did awesome with most of them finishing in the front of the middle pack.
They all learned A LOT. For some of them, it was their FIRST race ever and it was fun to hear about what they learned from the race and what they will do differently next time. Not gonna lie. This is my favorite part of my job. Why can’t this be a year round sport….I will just have to count down the days until track season begins once cross country is over.
Right after the meet I had to rehydrate from all the electrolyites I lost jumping around and yelling. I forced Ash to go to Mickey D’s with me for lemonades.
Hello, Mr. Worker in the background. I bet he is stoked that he is now on a blog that talks abou running for FUN (some people think it is strange that we love to run…did you know that?) and a 25 year olds latest food obsessions.
Dinner was a 3-course meal. By the time I got home I did not feel like prepping my usual really fancy dinners (ie sandwiches or some sort of leftover I stole from my mom’s house) and so a salad was the next best thing.
Billy made brown rice earlier because he is responsible and thinks about the future. I just benefit from his brains.
I currently cannot eat enough fish sticks. These ones are from costco and the seasoning on them are heavenly.
My sister would be ashamed. She does not like fish one bit ESPECIALLY those fried pieces of fishy goodness.
And my third course. Mug o’ Cocoa Krispies. Just thought I would take an artistic food photo of my favorite part of this particular cereal…..the last few bites.
Any cereal that turns my milk at the end of my bowl (when I usually get sad that my cereal is all gone and I have to stand up and get more) into a chocolatey sugary milk= brilliant food engineering.
Speaking of cereal. Have you tried the LITTLE bites Frosted Mini-Wheats? They are amazing. Billy finished off the box earlier today and I may have been really sad about it because I wanted to show you how cute they are.
Billy says he still likes the regular sized ones better but these little ones had more frosting to wheat ratio. I think you know which one I like best.

What was a lesson you learned from one of your first racing experiences?
-Body Glide is ALWAYS needed in multiple areas.
-Don’t go out like a speeding bullet because you will end up laying in the gutter a few miles from the finish.
What are the temps like where you are? Is is beginning to look a lot like Fallmas (get it, you know the song, It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas….it’s late, give me a break)?
-Still HOT here but the mountains are starting to have splashes of orange and red.
What delicious cereal do you think I need to buy now that my preciuous mini-wheats are gone?
