The second I arrived to my in-laws house I was surrounded by fresh fruit. That blueberry crate below was full before I got to it. I am always in charge of cutting the watermelon and act as though I do it to serve others but in reality I just want to eat half of it as I cut it.
Whenever my mother-in-laws boys come back to visit her she makes ribs and homemade bbq sauce. I also found a potato salad that I finally like, my MIL’s is crazy good and has hardboiled eggs, celery and onions in it too.
Life with a dog around is automatically better.
I thought that I was full after dinner and didn’t think it was possible to fit in one more bite but then a crepe filled with dulce de leche ice cream magically appeared in front of me. I am convinced that anyone can push through fullness in order to fit in a delicious crepe, I am living proof.
It was another night/day of watching the trials and I got extra excited to see Jenny Simpson make the 1500 meter Olympic team.
After all we are pretty much best friends.
The race off to break the tie for the last spot on the 100 meter women’s team is on tonight. Who do you think will win? Allyson Felix or Jeneba Tarmoh?
And to finish of the longest post of my life (sorry if your fingers are tired from scrolling down), 5 reasons to get out and get your workout on today:
1. What better way to start your week than with a fresh new batch of endorphins flowing through your veins?
2. You can.
3. It is good for your mental health and helps us all be a little less crazy. You know you will feel so much better afterwards.
4. It is so much easier to get out for a run in the summer (unless you live somewhere with crazy hot temperatures) compared to the winter…no running tights/gloves/hats/thermals. Just grab a tank, shorts and sports bra (or 3 in my case) and get out there.
5. Run (work out) for those days that you wish you could but can’t because of injury, time or sickness.
Favorite crepe toppings/fillings?

Do you own a grill? How often do you use a grill?
