I stole this picture and quote off of PAM’S Facebook wall and I have been thinking about it a lot lately. On my 7 miler this morning I realized how applicable it is to my life right now. I am not setting prs and won’t for a while, I am getting slower each week and yet running means more to me now than ever because it allows me to be filled with endorphins and see how great life is. Running really helps us to see things in such a positive light and realize how much we have. Sorry to get cheesy. 9 months pregnant will do that to you a lot.
Kara said it perfectly:
After my run I had my FIRST BABY SHOWER. How did this all come so fast? Do pickles taste amazing to you too after a run? I had the salad bar with pudding, fruit salad and cornbread in the background. Oh and their delicious ice cream to top it all off.
My cutest friend Holly, that I met through spin years ago, put the shower together (PS she just ran a 1:24 at her last half-marathon) and it was perfect. She even brought my FAVORITE pb cookies. Not only did she bring the cookies but she brought them frozen and kept packs of ice around them so that they would stay frozen! I even shared a few which goes to show how much I love this group of girls that I was with.
Present time with the cutest stuff for our little girl and even a few presents for me (skittles AND lemonade:).
How about everyone comes up and moves to Northern Cali and we can all stay best friends forever. All of you reading better come to and we can have the coolest running club ever.
Now I am counting down the seconds until the Olympic Opening Ceremonies!
Do you have any running quotes that you have seen/heard lately that you are loving?
Are you watching the Olympic Ceremonies tonight?
Are you a pickle fan? Do you have a favorite kind??
-I love them all except I do not like bread and butter pickles.
