Getting up to run early is close to a million times easier when you have friends to meet up with. I did 8 recovery miles with some speedy chickas (one already runs a sub 3 marathon and the other is currently training for sub 3 for the St. George Marathon in October). Besides the awesome conversation that makes the time fly by these girls have already motivated me even more to get that sub 3 soon. Training with them a few times a week will make the world of difference.
These girls even inspired me to go to the gym and lift weights and do planks for a few minutes.
Darn those good influences.
We ran on the river trail which I loved because I rarely run on that trail anymore because I run when it is too early to be on it by myself.
The Anderson family goes a little crazy over peaches. Each fall Utah produces the most delicious peaches and my mom buys boxes of them at a time. 4 peaches for breakfast is completely normal.
I am really trying to figure out Brooke’s face in the below picture. I think there is a hint of jealousy that I am holding another baby along with a lot of happiness that she has a new boyfriend in her life. This little one is just 6 weeks old and he is the sweetest.
I am really lucky that a lot of my best friends from growing up still live in the area now that I am back. She picked up Kneader’s salads (turkey/avocado/bacon) for us and we ate them at her house and talked for hours.
Later on I picked up my sis to shop for Brooke’s birthday party! Brooke is a little too intellectual for Target and decided to read as we went up and down every aisle.
Thank you again Target for robbing me.
My new thing lately is going to a yoga class after Brooke goes to sleep at my gym. It is the easy kind of yoga and super relaxing because let’s be honest…night time is the hardest time of day for me and this helps a lot!. I like to come home, talk to one of my brothers on the phone and eat ice cream out of the carton while my mom walks in and takes a picture of me.
Be honest: Do you love yoga or are you not a fan of yoga?
Who is running a fall race? Which one? Anyone running the St. George Marathon?
What is your workout going to be today?
