You know that it is time to finally do laundry (um, it has been 3 weeks) when you end up wearing purple, aqua and orange together. Actually maybe I am color blind but I kind of like this combo now that I think about it.
Running is actually going a lot better than I thought it would post baby. This morning I did 7 miles at an 8:20 pace and it felt really comfortable. I wouldn’t be jumping into this kind of mileage if it wasn’t for the fact I was averaging 45 miles per week the weeks before I had Brooke. I do get a little frustrated every now and then thinking about how far I have to go in order to reach my future goals but I am learning to enjoy the challenge and celebrate the fact that I am running. Plus having Brooke is probably the most cool thing ever and way more fun than anything I could imagine.
I have a 1/2 marathon next month that I might be doing but I will be taking it easy and just doing it for fun (I say that now right;) It is also interesting adjusting to not running first thing in the morning. I used to always just wake up and run but now I wake up, play with Brooke, feed her and start running during her nap at around 10:30 but I love doing it then because it doesn’t cut into time spent with Brooke or Billy. Added bonus is that I am getting Brooke used to seeing me sweaty and red faced when she wakes up because that is how it will be the rest of her life.
I found this awesome chart (kind of obsessed with charts/times/numbers etc) that I am hoping Billy will print out for me today at school to put on my treadmill. My treadmill doesn’t show what each MPH = in terms of pace so I NEED this plastered on.
So all I have to do is run at 12 miles per hour for 26.2 miles to get a 2:11 marathon, easy enough.
You know I would never have a delicious food and not share it with you right? We are too close for that. On Saturday night I tried my new absolute FAVORITE combo in the whole wide world. The host told us that the proper ratio is 1.5 peanut per candy corn and you will die of happiness when you try this sweet and salty combo. Try it soon. You can send me candy corn in the mail as a thank-you for sharing this with you.
PS if you live in the San Jose area we are having a get together at Yogurtland at 7 tonight, email me and I can give you more info!!!

Favorite sweet and salty combination?
How is running going for you lately?
Are you a wake up and run kind of a person or do you wait a little while?
