Many prayers to the people of Oklahoma!
I have made it on to Buzzfeed. Another goal on my Life Goal List accomplished.
Did you hear about this incredible 16 year old? Alana Hadley is the top 16 year old long-distance runner in the country and is training for the Cleveland Marathon! She is shooting for a TWO HOUR and FORTY MINUTE MARATHON! She has average 15 miles a day for the last 7 weeks. ***edited to add she ran a 2:58 this last weekend!!!!
Yesterday afternoon was spent hanging out together eating strawberries, watching an episode of Chopped while the kids napped and I am pretty sure I napped at some point but I can’t remember. My short term memory is struggling but luckily I take a picture of everything we do so then I can kind of remember what we did.
I got to meet more blog friends like Beth!!!
And Lara (met her fiancé at her running group, so cool!), Kristine and Lisa. Meeting new friends that are just as obsessed with running as I am is my favorite part about blogging.
Brooke thinks it is hilarious to put her hand in her mouth right as we are taking a picture just because she knows I want her to smile instead.
Take it from me, chocolate and gummy bears really do taste good together. I am the most indecisive person in the world so this way I didn’t have to make any tough decisions at the toppings bar (plus there were a lot of people behind me in line and I felt bad doing my normal ‘stand in front of the toppings for ten minutes stressing out over making the best decision’ thing).
Speaking of chocolate… I need this shirt.
And to continue on with this random tangent, I love the title of this ice cream and need to try it some day.
We got home at about nine and had dinner after dessert, just the way I like it. We had the same dinner as Sunday night because it was just that good. The fact that Brooke loves salmon as much as she does means a lot to me.
Have you ever ran a race in costume? What did you wear?
How young is too young to be running a marathon? Any thoughts about this?
How old were you when you first started running? How old were you when you did your first race?
