Can we talk for a minute about my absolute favorite thing in the whole wide world (it doesn’t involve running or sugar, I know you thought my answer was going to be running while eating swedish fish and milky ways).
It is when Brooke falls asleep on me and then I am FORCED to just lay there on the couch and feel her tiny warm body on me and listen to her little snores as she sleeps.
In case you are keeping track, this is the third day in a row I have worn that black sweater. At least I have switched up the necklace that I wear with it each day.
After Brooke’s nap our friend came and picked us up to go to the running store. Her shins have started to hurt and so it was time to find something new (I definitely invited myself to come on this outing).
I may have mentioned that Brooks are my favorite brand but she chose the Glycerin 10s all on her own because she loved them more than any of the other shoes that they brought out for her to try on.
Brooke won our little sock competition once again. Maybe she is preparing her feet for a future in barefoot running.
I have not been in a running shoe store in FOREVER! There is just something magical about staring at a wall of shoes and looking at a case full of Garmins.
When Billy got home from school we went to TJ’s for some edamame for a dinner that I am going to tonight. Those darn stands of chocolate at the cash register get me every single time. We hadn’t tried these gems yet. Try them please. I might have to do a giveaway of some of these for people that don’t have a Trader Joe’s close to them because I need you to try these.
We got home at 8 and that meant that I only had enough patience (because I was hangry) to throw an Alfredo chicken pizza from Costco in the oven for 10 minutes. The crust is super crispy and it had the perfect amount of cheese. Winner.
I saw this little video and article on Runner’s World and thought of all of you living in arctic temperatures! Hopefully it can help your muscles get warm and ready to handle the freezing temps before you head out the door.
PS as I am typing this Billy is working on updating his resume for an internship this summer… cross your fingers (and toes) that he gets a really good one mkay?
How do you warm-up before your run?
-All I do is run the first mile slower than I am aiming for the rest of the run.
Where do you buy your running shoes? At a running store? Online? The black market?
Have you ever participated in an internship? Where?
What was the last kind of pizza that you had?
