Brooke has been picking blackberries and strawberries like a champ lately. One for the bowl, twelve for her tummy.
These two are inseparable.
Really, there is no better way to start your morning than breakfast at Denny’s with your mom and two oldest brothers. Actually, there are a lot of better places to eat breakfast but it did hit the spot and having breakfast made for you > pouring your own bowl of cereal.
Later on we had ice cream and my computer ate my picture. We all chose brownies a la mode for our ice cream flavor and I am officially my brothers favorite sibling now that I took them to try that kind of ice cream.
Welcome to my week of running whatever I want, whenever I want and as far as I want to go:) Just running just to run. I ran 8 miles Monday morning (7:45 pace) and the saddest thing happened. My hair tie BROKE. I had to run with my hair down for a few miles and it was not fun.
Tuesday’s run was done at 5 in the afternoon. During the heat. Luckily I had a few new neon hair bands to get me through and ensure that I would be prepared if mine broke (I didn’t bring all of them. Just 5). 4 miles @ a 7:07 pace.
You want to know about the weirdest thing about this week’s running? I am running musicless. It may be my new thing for a little while (okay, probably not very long) but it has been really working for me.
It has actually been 21 months since the last time I ate at Olive Garden (I really did do the math on this one because I knew it had been a while since I had been there). We went seconds after my run so I stuck with the salad, multiple breadsticks and
the minestrone soup. The perfect combination of foods.
You better have a great Wednesday.
How often do you run without music?
Olive Garden: what do you order there?
I feel like we haven’t talked for a while so fill me in on your running… your food… your life! Details please.
