Interesting phenomena: when you don’t work out you are way more tired throughout the day compared to the days that you do work out. My dad drove me up to the airport early this morning which meant we both didn’t have our morning workouts (I love that he is hooked on exercise now too). We had a deep discussion about how crazy it is that exercise gives you a boost of energy throughout the day and on the days you don’t work out you feel sluggish and tired. Anyone else agree?
Airplane rides without a 1 year old are quite uneventful. It was weird to just sit there and read and eat wheat thins. Brooke just makes life much more exciting.
Ya know, just saving $28 by bring my own food with me to the airport. FYI almond butter and jelly sandwiches get really smashed when you put them in your purse under your huge camera.
Started reading this book and it is really good so far but once again I like pretty much every book/movie.
Since I didn’t run today, let’s talk about running clothes instead. I think we really need to talk about cold weather running clothes because it is officially freezing outside and we need to do what it takes to keep us running through the cold months instead of choosing to hibernate.
The Brooks Utopia Softshell Jacket II and the Infiniti Tight III came just in time to save me from turning into an ice cube (or only running on the treadmill all winter long to prevent turning into an ice cube). These two items have kept me quite toasty during my last few cold runs.
The tights have an awesome thick waistband so you don’t feel like the band is digging into your sides like thin waistbands do. The drawstring in the waistband prevented the pants from moving throughout my runs. They kept me incredibly warm and the reflectors on the back and sides were great for my night run (the jackets has awesome reflectors). They fit well and were pretty comfortable. They offer a ton of different colors and patterns. Just wish they were a tiny bit longer for me but maybe they are supposed to be that length?
I really love the look of the jacket because I love basic black jackets but this one has the extra fun details/colors. I love that it zips up high enough to keep your neck warm. The jacket has cuffs and thumbholes and kept me warm during a windy run and dry during a rainy run. I just really think it is a cute jacket (expect to see this one thousands of times on the blog).
I hope that at some point today you are as excited about life as Brooke was last night:)
I’ve had a few requests for a video of Brooke saying doggy so here it is:
Hope your Thursday is going great! Just landed in Pennsylvania!
