Brooke was not very happy with us for getting her out of her warm bed at early o’clock this morning to catch a flight.
I was happy because I had a yogurt parfait and chocolate muffin for breakfast. I would be fine starting every morning off with that.
She thought she was pretty funny because she fits on as a carry-on.
I wasn’t able to get out for a run until 1 this afternoon when I put Brooke down for a nap but it was more than worth the wait. Between listening to ROAR on repeat (that song is addicting) and having 1 hour and 15 minutes to just think, it was an awesome run.
I can’t wait for these leaves to start changing colors.
I did a progression run and started with an 8:15 mile and got a little faster with each mile until the last mile which was a 6:49 mile. 10 miles with an average pace of 7:29. Progression runs are by far my favorite runs…they keep me entertained and allow my body plenty of time to get warmed up before the hard work.
This is the best water fountain in Utah. I swear that the fresh mountain stream water is sent directly to this water fountain. It tastes so good and it is always so cold.
Just a few things I want to share with you…
Jodi sent me this quote and I think it is 100% accurate. Another reason that runners are so cool.

And the last thing that is coming out of my random brain is that I signed up for iFit (I have to tell you because I can’t do something running related and not tell you about it. That would just be weird).
Reasons I am excited to use iFit to track my workouts:
1- It keeps track of all of your stats and you can see your stats according to your stats for all time…for the last 7 days….for the last 6 months etc.
2- It is free and incredibly easy to input your workouts and all of the details. I love looking back on past workouts during a training cycle (looking back on workouts that I nailed really helps with my confidence when it is race time) so this will be really good for me.
3- You can keep track of your FIT Score according to how often you work out, reaching your goals and the amount of time that your work out each week. Kind of a fun way to see your progress and a way to motivate yourself to work out.
