Talk about true love.  These two shared their lunches with each other yesterday.

Good news.  I have a ‘she lives within steps of my house/I get to hang out all of the time with her/we have so much in common/I love everything about her/our kids are going to get married someday’ Utah friend.  It is people like this that make my situation right now so much easier. 

And food like this.

I am not going to lie, this post is heavy on the Brooke stuff because the last post only had one picture of her.  Actually, I just went back and read it and there were two pictures of her but that just wasn’t enough.

Brooke has a photoshoot on Thursday and I found the absolute perfect outfit at Target for her pictures with my friend after lunch.  Still trying to decide on which headband to have her wear…too many tough decisions in my life right now.

Afterwards I hung out at my sister’s house and had a deep discussion with Curly over a tub of homemade pico and tortilla chips.  She just started preschool last week so we had a lot to catch up on.

IMG 1492

Next stop (have you noticed I try to keep really busy lately;) was to see ASHLEY’S NEW LITTLE BABY.  He is absolutely perfect in every way.  

IMG 1498

Intermission:  Brooke’s new thing lately is to randomly come over and stand on my lap and put our foreheads together for about a minute.   This is my favorite thing that she has ever done.  She just keeps getting cooler and cooler.

IMG 1499

And then my mom and I hit the town late last night after Brooke went to bed (my dad was home with her) for large amounts of sugar.

Apparently my new thing is wearing ripped jeans, I must be going through an identity crisis or something.  

Time for a tempo run this morning.  There is a small possibility that my legs may fall off doing a tempo run the day after a track workout.

What was the last thing that you ate?

Would you rather do a track workout, tempo run or long run? 

Those with kids in school… what grade(s) are they in?

I jut ate one of my cocoa date balls that I make because I’m about to hoo out the car and run with my BFF. Stroller-less! A glorious day indeed! And I love me a good tempo run for sure!

I just had a handful of blueberry almonds for a morning snack :-) LONG RUN any day! I avoid pain at all costs! Brooke is adorable! I can’t wait to see the pics from her photoshoot!

The last thing I ate was…. cereal. Sultana Bran – my life is so exciting right now. But for lunch I am going to eat a tuna sandwich and chips, so I’m excited about that. And I might throw some chocolate in there too cos I’m edgy like that. ;)

I love long runs! I love the rhythm and having that head space. And when you have your favourite song on repeat, it’s the best time to chill out.

Have a good day!

That is an adorable outfit! Can’t wait to see her photo shoot pictures!
Last thing I ate was a pumpkin muffin. So tasty.

The last thing I ate was a pumpkin cheesecake cookie. It was just okay.

My girls are in 7th & 10th grade this year. It kind of hurt to type that!

Your ripped jeans are cute! We just bought my oldest daughter a pair of ripped jeans at Hollister over the weekend. She loves them and wore them to school today.

You’re right, Brooke is getting more cool and adorable everyday! Thanks for sharing her with us.

Reply

HA! They are so adorable together and that is nice to not live far away. I feel like Brooke has more friends then I do LOL.

I’m sitting here eating breakfast and reading blogs so you can probably guess what I’m eating.

I’m also wearing ripped shorts so I guess it can be an identity crisis for me too. My parents would never let me buy ripped jeans in middle school and I always used to get so upset. I remember one day in high school I bought a pair when out with my friends and let me tell you I never did that again ha.

And tempo runs. I hate the track. Forever and ever.

Reply

I just ate a bowl of cereal. Pretty exciting stuff.

I’d rather do a long run. I really enjoy running where I don’t have to think about my pace and can just zone out and have fun.

Reply

I just ate a bowl of cereal! It’s part of my breakfast routine, eating my cereal and reading your blog! :-)

In this order I prefer: long runs, tempo runs, and then track workouts. I like long runs best because I always run them with my Cruiser friends, and it’s my catch-up time with them!

Brooke’s little top-knot is adorable! Have a great tempo run Janae!

I started my day with a couple waffles, they weren’t anything to write home about, but I was able to eat them while driving into work and that’s the most important aspect of breakfast. I love Brooke’s outfit for her photos and am excited to see them!

Ah, I am drinking coffee right now and had 2 poached eggs~slaw~and avocado for breakfast….loving everything with avocado these days!!

I’d choose a long run any day, but I think I should start choosing the others to work on some speed and mixing it up!

Ugh, that picture makes Froyo look so much better than mine in real life! Last thing I ate was some almond, literally just a few seconds ago haha. I’m thinking tempo run, because it sounds fast. And I’ve been into any run lately as long as it is fast! Never thought I’d say that haha

My girl and I split powdered doughnut holes a few moments ago. That’s what you feed your 9 month old when she wake up babbling at 445 am, right? ;-)

FYI- they’re on sale at QFS (Kroger chain) for $1 vs. $2.99 until the 24th of September!

My step-son is in 9th grade. Wowzers! Miss that young man…

I love all of your pictures. They come out so clear. And when Brooke get older she will have her whole life in pictures just by visiting your blog. I think for sure I will blog more once I have kids that way there is somewhere they can look back on and know every detail of our lives.

Last thing I ate…gluten free pizza with chicken, mushrooms, and goat cheese. It was alright.

I like all kinds of runs…the variety of challenge is what makes it interesting to me.

No kids, but one of my nieces went through a forehead to forehead stage just like that with me when they were little too. It’s so sweet! :)

Reply

I would almost always choose a long run…unless its really hot…then quick and speedy workout so I can get inside and lay on the floor:) Last thing I ate was oatmeal and a banana with iced coffee.

This is my favorite picture of you and Brooke. It’s as if she is connecting with you and no words are necessary. She loves you and you love her unconditionally. Chokes me up a little. I wish they could stay this age forever. Have a fantastic day Janae! xoxo

I literally just finished my last spoonful of breakfast… oats with AB, honey, and Greek yogurt. Delicious, but I’m super sad they’re all gone :( And that pic of you and Brooke with your foreheads together is seriously the sweetest thing ever. I think she’s smitten with you, and it’s easy to see that the feeling is mutual :)

Reply

Brooke is going to look so cute for her photo shoot!!! I can’t wait to see the pictures! :)

I was never allowed to wear ripped jeans so maybe I should rebel and wear them now that I’m basically a grown up. I like the headband on the left for brooke! She’s little miss popularity these days- her coolness shows :)
Also, hitting the town to eat ice cream-my favorite way.

Reply

Last thing I ate was a fabulous cinnamon roll (well still in process of eating it) with a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Perfect breakfast in my eyes.

I would much rather do a track workout than a tempo run, for some reason I have always had a beef with tempo’s. BUT It’s a toss up between track workouts and long runs. I love them both at this point, I guess it just depends on the day. Today we will say long run because that’s what I have to do after work today.

For the record: I’m glad you are keeping super busy with fun things, hope it’s helping!

Last thing I ate was breakfast this morning- kale smoothie with banana, cinnamon, chia, and almond milk. I like the long runs, mentally and physically tough, but such a great feeling of accomplishment.

The last thing I ate was a pasta dinner. You’re AMAZING with all of your track runs and tempo runs and everything!! I love hearing about this!

Brooke is seriously THE cutest. That little stand-on-your-knees-&-press-foreheads-together is so funny. WRITE THAT DOWN so you never forget these little funny antics she does! I had maple and brown sugar oatmeal just now. I still have no taste buds, so I’ve been consuming TONS of carbs. Hadn’t had oatmeal in a LONG time, and it hit the spot this morning! Nice job on the training!

That forehead picture made me tear up – Brooke must know when your spirits need lifting! :)
The last thing I ate was Swedish Fish for dessert last night – score!
I have a daughter who just started her second year of pharmacy school and then I have two sons – one is a sophomore in H.S. and the other is a freshman.
As much as I dread my long runs beforehand, I’d take them over a track workout or a tempo run any day …

Reply

Last thing I ate: Cheerios with raspberries, sunflower seeds and slivered almonds (my usual weekday breakfast), but I’m about to eat a donut because a customer just brought in one for me! :)

I would SO much rather do a long run any day! The rest of my training is all just to make the long runs possible. :)

Reply

The last thing I ate was some candy corn M&Ms…clearly, I like to start my day off on a healthy note :)

I have never done a track or tempo workout and I probably should get on that one of these days. Long runs are definitely what I prefer and I think I am going to have to try one today. Weather is hitting a high of 69 and lots of sunshine, no humidity. It’s like, “run! you want to run!” haha

Cannot WAIT to see Brooke’s photoshoot pictures!!! She is the most photogenic child I have EVER seen so I’m sure they will be amazing! The forehead touching thing is so precious <3 God knew exactly what he was doing when he brought her into your life…

Have a fabulous day, girl!

I had a caramel apple 3 musketeers only I mistakenly thought it was a caramel apple milky way so I was really disappointed with it. I resolved to have apple cinnamon pancakes for dinner to make myself feel better.
As a connoisseur and lover of headbands I’d go with the multicolored headband.

Last thing I ate was a breakfast egg thang, it was delicious! I would rather do a track work out I think. Long runs are great but I always feel like a badass when I run fast.

My dog turns one on Saturday!! She has made it through 3 puppy training classes and two advanced classes (each class is 6 weeks). Her womanhood is also being snatched on the 30th. So many changes this month!

My favorite would have to be long or tempo – probably tempo because usually that means it is over quicker! I am about to head out to do a 10-11 easy miles to recover from my tempo yesterday.

Oh my, I just love Brooke! That is the sweetest thing ever.

The last thing I ate was a bbq chicken quesadilla.

My preference of run depends on my mood and what I have time for :) Lately, I’ve been looking forward to my long runs.

Multiple pictures of Brooke make me so happy! Last thing I ate was breakfast. 1/2 banana then my run, then the rest of the banana at home, then a Lara bar and a diet coke (like my caffeine cold) on the way to work.

Reply

That made me want to go to Red Mango so bad! It might be a track workout…they are hard, but done faster. Tempos are just hard. Long runs right now kinda scare me :)…I have been trying to fo them a bit faster and I don’t have a good fuel plan! Here is my question for you…does your coach mind if you do candy for fuel? Is it really a good fuels source? I am honestly asking because I might try it!…Gels I just can’t seem to stomach and I have tried 4 kinds….chews are okay….but I am considering candy if it is effective!

Reply

My vote is the sparkly headband!

You are SO incredibly lucky to have such supportive friends and family to help you through this rough time. Stay busy (busy is good) and keep doing what YOU want to do. Do what makes YOU happy.

Currently drinking a diet coke, about to have a breakfast bar… all those running options sound awful! I say elliptical… and no kiddos. I have a puppy, does that count? But she is not in school.

Reply

Long run for the win, especially if it’s on trails. But I’ve been really happy with my track workouts and tempo runs lately. Well, happy after they’re over! Yesterday I thought my track workout would never end. I think my legs were still beat from Saturday’s 15-mile trail race! Tomorrow is a 10-mile tempo run at marathon pace. Yikes!

Reply

I love that outfit. She’s going to rock that photoshoot! :)

Last thing I ate were gummy vitamins…I should probably eat breakfast soon haha

That’s a hard one…I like “track” workouts but not on a track. I like to do them on the treadmill. Maybe that makes me really strange. Oh well.

That outfit for Brooke’s pictures is ADORABLE! My vote is for the multi-colored headband. Curly is looking more and more and more like her momma! They are going to look like twins before you know it.

Last thing I ate was chocolate peanut butter ice cream last night, it was delish.

Hmm I think I would pick the track workout, but I also don’t run anywhere near as fast as you so I don’t feel as spent after!

That’s such a tough question… I love tempo runs-they’re tough but you just feel so good afterwards! However, I also love long runs because they give me the chance to catch up with my friends… Truth is, I love all my runs ;) Probably I don’t like track workouts that much just because of the track per se-I get bored going around and around and around…

Ummm I thought those jeans were cute and you looked awesome as always. So carry one with your bad self ;) Good to know we aren’t the only ones that eat tubs full of pico. That stuff is so addicting and it’s what you do when your garden is full of those ingredients.

Can’t wait to see Brooke’s pics. She is so adorable. I just love her and her laugh yesterday just instantly made me in a better mood.

Wow, Curly is starting to look so much like your sister!

I just ate 1/4 cup of trail mix, it’s my 10am snack and I look forward to it every day.

I’m torn between tempo and long run. They hurt differently, but the tempo is over sooner, but I always feel so badass after a long run. Obviously I’m indecisive.

I like track workouts with my running group. We talk a lot between reps. Long runs are great though too because I talk the whole time with my friends.

I LOVE Brooke’s photo shoot outfit. I like the plain gold headband slightly better for that outfit. The other one would be great with something else. Just my opinion though! Brooke would look cute in anything :)

Reply

I’d rather do a long run but I know speedwork is what helps you improve! Love the touching foreheads thing…so precious!

Reply

Last thing I ate was ham and eggs on whole wheat toast for lunch.

Track workouts are DEFINITELY my favorite. As a shorter-distance runner/sprinter they are kind of it for me anyway, but I so prefer high intensity for short periods to medium-high for longer. Nothing like the rush of doing an insane number of 100m reps as fast as possible or a set of progressively faster 400s that make your whole body shake at the end.

Long runs or tempos, on the other hand, always feel like wars of attrition to me… feels like slowly bleeding out my energy into the road and I don’t even get to look at a big collection of snazzy interval times and analyze them!

Plus something about breaking up the workout into pieces makes it a LOT easier than doing it continuously.

Sprinter mindset vs. distance, lol. Glad you seem ‘up’ and are doing well. Your track workout was impressive btw! And I love resisted running. Parachute sprints are even better.

Reply

Long run. ALL THE WAY.

Brooke and the forehead thing is absolutely precious. Annabelle does something similar…but she tries to gum my face in the process. Isn’t it amazing how they can make everything seem ok? :)

Brooke’s hair in that topknot is unbelievably cute! And your story about her pressing her forehead to yours is the best thing I’ve heard all month..SO sweet :)

I love a good track workout! Until last week, I haven’t been able to run for about 8 months though, due to knee issues. But my amazing new chiropractor has helped me so much, and I managed a couple short walk/run interval workouts…..so exciting to start getting back out there! I’m trying to learn from you and ease back in slowly though.

Can I put my vote in for the multi-coloured headband? :)

I’d rather do speed work. Or run long. Tempo runs are not my favorite…which means they’re what I should focus on when I start running again.

My school-aged kids are in 9th, 6th, 3rd and pre-k. One at every kind of school! Also, I have one stepchild at junior college, one just graduated from college, one in med school school. Really covering almost all the educational bases ;-)

Frosted Flakes. They have become my new favorite late night snack.

I had egg whites with salsa and turkey sausage this morning… last thing I ate :) My favorite run is the long run, though a speed work out does leave me feeling pretty satisfied too. My girls are 8 and 6 years old (1st and 3rd grade) and are starting to be pretty interested in running. In fact there is a “Great Candy Run 5k” next weekend that I’m doing (even though I hate 5k’s… it’s called Candy run… I can’t miss that) and they are x’ing off the days on the calendar because they are so excited! (they are doing the 1 mile fun run :)

I’m supposed to be paying a bill online, and then I need a shower stat because I’m not sure I need to expose some morning company to my post-early-morning-run-funk, but instead I was scrolling through your lovely my blog. My 4-year-old asked, “Who are all those people?”

“Just a blog I read,” I said (one of the only ones by the way as I drastically have skimmed my social media diet in recent years to be a more fully present mom, friend, wife, runner, and human being rather than human doing). :-)

Well, she saw Brooke and the babies and Curly, and said, “Awwww…what cute kids!”

Just thought I’d send some of her 4-year-old sunshine your way! I also said a prayer for you after we admired your photos.
