Did you hear about the incredible woman that was planning to run the Run for Heroes half-marathon but she took a wrong turn on the course and ended up WINNING the full marathon?! The most she had ever run previous to this race was 20 miles and she finished with a time of 3:11. Her half-marathon training plan must have been pretty awesome.
Speaking of incredible athletes…. Brooke rocked the balance beam last night.
And I am positive that Curly can hold on to the bar at least 5 minutes longer than I ever could. She even points her toes when she is up there.
Brooke’s absolute favorite event of the evening was the trampoline. I wish you could have seen her. Next time we go to the gymnastics gym you should just come with us because Brooke jumping on the trampoline while giggling and speaking her own language is the best thing you will ever see. I guess I will just have to record it.
After the gymnastics gym I got to steal my older niece away for a while so the three of us could hang out. PS Brooke is getting her top teeth in as we speak. PPS my niece’s hair is almost long enough to cut it for Locks of Love again… she came up with the idea of doing this all on her own, that should give you an idea of how great she is.
It is a miracle. I didn’t eat out for dinner. My parents usually do their own thing for dinner (because of my Dad’s diet) and cooking for one isn’t very fun so when I do eat dinner at home it involves cereal and or a sandwich which is actually a pretty delicious dinner.
Once Brooke went to bed my mom and I went out to the Slurp (she saw it on my blog and wanted to try it out so I was selfless and went with her).
Diet coke and ice cream (with a brownie at the bottom. Not just any brownie, a brownie with frosting and no nuts. The best kind.)
I am running on a treadmill this morning because it will be too dark to go by myself and it will force me to stay slow because I really need to be smart after doing my 18 miles yesterday! Enjoy your Friday!
