Brooke will only eat her food with a fork. Even if it is just toast. She puts the food on her fork, takes it off with her other hand and then puts the food in her mouth.
We are both on a kick of having almond butter every morning of our lives.
I refuse to ever change being an indecisive person… I can never make the life-altering decision between an egg/laughing cow sandwich and an almond butter and jelly sandwich.
1st running shoes activity: 5:30 a.m. run with friends (7 miles easy…they threw in 2 marathon pace miles but I didn’t fall into peer pressure by doing the fast miles with them ((okay, they didn’t pressure me but I really wanted to do the fast ones with them)) because I did speed yesterday and I will be doing speed tomorrow).
If I did hashtags I would do something with a hashtag and telling you to keep the easy days easy.
2nd running shoes activity: 5 mile walk around town with the sister while we talked about the deep things in life.
Yes, that is a diet coke in the cup holder. It was needed.
Brooke will only ride in the stroller now when she is napping so once she woke up she showed off her walking skills.
As I was painting my toes this morning (if I am sitting down Brooke has decided that she has to be sitting on my lap) I was thinking about some of the sacrifices that runners make.
Some of the sacrifices that runners make:
1. Your feet. Only 6% of runners have cute feet.
2. Your hard earned money. Shoes, race bibs, shorts, winter gear, treadmills, shoes, compression socks, foam rollers, shoes, sports bras, tanks, gamins, iPods, running friends (maybe just my friends charge me to run with them).
3. Having a chafe-free body. We won’t go into details on this one.
4. Your bed. Leaving my king size bed and 4 blankets each morning is quite the sacrifice if I do say so myself.
5. Friday (or Saturday) nights. That long run or race cannot be done on just a few hours of sleep.
6. Feeling in our fingers each run during the winter months.
7. Wearing a swimsuit without 400 tan lines created by your summer running wardrobe.
8. To have to eat GU…. that is a sacrifice I am not willing to make.
9. Your thoughts. You have to admit, running takes up a lot of our brain power and thoughts.
10. Our sanity when we get injured from running. I wouldn’t wish a running injury on anyone. Ever.
Somehow all of the sacrifices are sooooooooo worth it. I would never have it any other way.
What are some of the sacrifices you make to be a runner?
Almond butter or peanut butter? You can only choose one.
What kind of bread/brand of bread do you buy?
