Gansta’s Paradise by Coolio was the song of my run today. I put my music on shuffle and that song came on and it just made my run (because I listened to it on repeat). I am proud to say that I still have every word memorized even though it came out when I was in the 4th grade (I thought the cool kids would want to hang out with me if I knew and memorized all of the popular music. In case you think that will work, it doesn’t).
I really like music. I really like running. So the combination is almost too much.
Today I had an easy trail run on my schedule. I wish we had mountains nearby to run around in but we don’t so I have to make do with a dirt trail with a few tiny hills in my area. I think what is important is running on softer surfaces every now and then especially on a recovery run like what I was doing today. It just feels so good on my body and my brain to run on trails.
PS I still can’t find my headband.
Bangs Friend and my mom finally met and my mom approved so that means we can still be friends and hang out together all of the time. What a relief.
First Brooke burned off some energy running around the mall playground (this has quickly become her favorite place because the toys are just her size and there are usually 48 other kids there).
Bread in one hand and grandma in the other= Brooke’s heaven.
My mom and I did the ‘get two things and split them because heaven forbid we decide on just one thing that sounds good to us.’ The Luau Salad and an omelet. Both were perfect. Bangs Friend had the huevos something or other that was really good too.
Now we are on a mission to go shopping for Brooke’s birthday. Yes, it is over a month early but we need to start shopping now.
Parents reading: what day(s) are your kiddos birthdays?
What was the best song that you listened to on your last run?
Do you have any trails near you? Do you live close to mountains/good hills?
What was your lunch?
