The four of us girls owned the trail this morning. We did 8 miles together @ an 8:04 pace. All three of these girls are incredibly fast and one of them is right on track to be running a sub 3 (I predict a 2:55) at the St. George Marathon in 2.5 weeks.
Part of our group this morning…one of them had important things to get to right away after our run (even though I think a picture after a run is pretty important;). Rachelle and I hit up the gym afterwards for 10 minutes of strength training. 10 minutes is better than no minutes. Don’t you love Janice’s shirt?
A little while later my sister called me to go on a walk. We walked for five miles and it felt like .25 miles….when we get talking nothing can stop us. It is incredible how much she is able to help me…I need to pay her hourly for therapy.
Our walk just so happened to end in the Subway parking lot. Don’t judge us for eating a Buffalo Chicken Subways for breakfast. That is a normal breakfast food.
Remember that friend I told you about that is pretty much perfect for me?
Here she is (get to know her because she will be around a lot):
We managed to fit all three carseats in the back of her car for our drive-thru adventures. Yes, Brooke is playing with my garmin.
As you know, Utah is the happening place…all of the fads/cool things start here and then go to places like LA and NYC;) The Slurp is kind of the happening place to go. If you are friends with any Utahns on Instagram then I am sure you have seen a dozen pictures of the sugar cookies from this place because everyone is obsessed with them here.
It lived up to all of the talk. Dirty Diet Coke (diet coke with coconut flavoring. aka heaven in a plastic cup) and sugar cookies.
We were right next to my friend’s favorite veggie burger place so I had to try one to make sure that I can trust her food choices (because that is very important to me when it comes to friendships) and I now trust her very much so. It was delicious and even better than a normal hamburger.
My goal for the day: eat dinner at home so I don’t eat all three meals out today. Unless I feel like Cafe Rio will make me happy. Then I will go.
Utah friends: Check out the Electric Run this Friday night at 8 pm at Thanksgviing Point! Besides the race looking like it is incredibly fun, THEY WILL BE FILMING THE BACHELOR THERE. I promise. This is not a joke. You should go run it for me (I wish I could be there but I’ll be out of town) and meet the bachelor.
