First item of business, CONGRATS BILLY for rocking your very first semester of Law School finals… before you know it he will be graduating and doing lawyer stuff.
My body loves sea level altitude. I can’t even begin to explain how much better my run felt yesterday in comparison to my three weeks of Utah runs. All of you people living in high altitude areas, you are rockstars. My PureFlow 2s felt like running on heaven. I did 10 miles at about a 7:35 average. 40 laps on a treadmill… I bet that sounds like complete torture to most people. I watched Friday Night Lights while running which made the time fly by.
You may not have noticed this but my friends in California kind of like to plan get-togethers that involve delicious foods as often as possible. We planned a Christmas lunch where we all brought different appetizer type foods.
The star to me was this poppyseed sweet bread with a sugar glaze that I want to drink.
Brooks sent me a special challenge for this month, “Make a really awesome meal for your husband and friends out of pasta shaped of your favorite things: running shoes and little runner people.”
A look of determination.
I am actually pretty proud of myself because of this meal. I don’t think I have ever made my own pasta sauce so this is kind of a big deal to me. You can’t go wrong with the Pioneer Woman and you really can’t go wrong with whipping cream so I knew this recipe was going to be good.
So Bangs and I love to text each other a million ideas a day of fun things that we want to do and when she texted me an idea that involved Christmas, candy and frosting I knew we had to make it happen. She brought over all of the candy that she has been collecting for this activity.
Can you guess which one is Billy’s Christmas tree? He really gets into things like this.
I don’t have a picture for you today of Brooke (I will make up for that in the next post) but I will show you the cute leg warmers and diaper cover that my mom got for her. I can’t wait to put her in these.
For the next MONTH be prepared to hear all about me and Brilly’s adventures around California because he is done with school for a FOUR whole weeks!
Do you notice a big difference when you run at different altitudes? Do you live at sea level? High altitude? Medium altiitude?
What is your maximum distance on the treadmill… when do you start to go crazy on the thing? Longest treadmill run?
Favorite type of pasta and sauce?
