What do you do when one of your favorite people is moving away from you? You do a runner’s version of a going away party: run 12 miles in the rain and cold together. Don’t feel too sad for us because she is only moving 1.5 hours away so we will still see each other all of the time but still….
I told you, I wear this coat every day of my life.
It was a gorgeous morning up the canyon. It started raining on the way back down so we were all soaked when we finished but running in the rain is fun. I promise. (Just keep telling yourself it is fun to run in the rain/snow until you start to believe that having prune feet/drenched clothing at the end of your run is a good time)
Today we talked about how fun it is to see the growth that we have seen each other’s running over the last year. Julia has taken an hour off of her marathon time and got a BQ in October, Rachelle just nailed a 1:17 half and is stronger than ever and Janice came back super strong after having a stress fracture in her ankle and has done a bunch of marathons/ultras and pr’ed in the marathon with a 3:19!
This was at the turn around point.
It took… a hot hot shower, sweats, a hoodie (with the hood on), a blanket and Brooke to warm me up after this morning’s run. Worth it.
I had lunch at 10:30 a.m. today. I feel like each week I eat my meals earlier and earlier.
Paige and I have a tradition in which we make cookies for each holiday.
I present to you the Thanksgiving bears (we couldn’t find any Thanksgiving cookie cutters so we settled on bears). Her sugar cookie recipe is the best.
When was the last time that you moved? From where to where?
If you could move anywhere in the world, where would you move?
Tell me about the PROGRESS/GROWTH that you have had in the last year in your running!
