Thank you so much for the amazing comments in the last two posts. You guys really are the best.
Let’s rewind a little bit to yesterday because it was very exciting;)
Brooke and I made our normal Sunday morning chocolate chip pancakes (she is getting incredibly good at scooping out the Bisquick) and then stayed home all day long in our pajamas. I just wanted to play at home with her with zero distractions before she left.
Once Brooke left my sister came over to hang out with me, we had dinner and then my girls picked me up to go to a Christmas get together.
I was very nervous about my run this morning. I was nervous because I was going on a run with a professional runner.
A few stats about her—> her first 1/2 marathon was a 1:15. She was sponsored by Nike for a few years. She competed in the Olympic Qualifying Trials TWICE and trained in Mammoth with all of the really fast people (Ryan Hall and Deena Kastor) for a while. Most importantly she is the nicest girl in the world. I was very nervous I was going to slow her down for our run this morning but somehow I was able to keep up with her ‘easy’ run ha.
I tried out my new PureFlow 3s for the first time. Wonderful. They offer more support (in my opinion) than the 2s but still felt very light. I just felt like my foot was more protected if that makes sense?!? I also felt like my toes had more room to stretch out with each foot strike in the toe box. They completely redesigned the entire shoe with this model so I hope you PureFlow lovers are happy with them too.
Haven’t seen negative splits in a very long time but I will gladly welcome them back into my life. We had a great conversation the entire 10 miles and it was a great way to start off the week.
PS I was working so hard during this run that I started getting really hot and it was only 16 degrees out.
Selfish Christmas gift of the year—> a gift card for my mom to get a manicure. The reason this was selfish is because it forced her to have to come with me to get one. She loved it and she even got gel nails and an accent nail:) It makes my heart happy.
Lunch was with one of my good friends from college at the Zupas. Turkey and avocado were meant to be combined.
Enjoy the rest of your Monday and eat some chocolate.
What two foods do you strongly believe are meant to be combined?
Pancakes…. do you use your own recipe or a mix like Bisquick or Krusteaz?
How was your Monday run? How far?!
