Eating a sugar cookie just a few minutes after finishing a 5k is always a good idea.
Posting a picture of yourself eating a sugar cookie just a few minutes after finishing a 5k probably isn’t the best idea.
I ran a 5k yesterday morning (sometimes I don’t really talk about races that much before I do them because I am weird like that) and I took 1st place woman overall and won a sweet gift basket of stuff from Utah Run. You’ll see a recap up soon. Just know that it hurt because racing a 5k hurts but that is good for training right? I also got a PR (I will explain more in the recap because I am feeling a little torn about it).
It was 50 degrees at the end of the race yesterday. Utah, I am really starting to love you again. This meant that I didn’t have to worry about falling on any ice for the entire race… I thought for sure that I would be dodging ice during this mid-February race.
One thing that I really love about races is that after I do one I am motivated to run and train even harder for the next one. It lights a flame in me. They get me excited to continue to wake up at 4 something o’clock to run each day.
With the warm-up, race and cool-down we did a total of 10 miles. Thanks PRO Compression for my sweet heart socks.
Brooke didn’t like her quesadilla so she tried feeding it to her baby doll.
Later on we went to the mall to let Brooke run around.
And boy did she run around. I have no idea where she gets all of this energy and desire to run all day from?! All I know is that she is getting FAST!
The two words that always make me the happiest girl around —> FREE MEAL.
A big group of us went to this Brazillian steakhouse for an amazing meal. In the below picture they are cutting up the grilled pineapple for us. They marinade the pineapple in brown sugar. Heaven.
The night ended with an intense game of cards at my friend’s house.
I hope your weekend has been excellent so far. I am looking forward to sleeping in and making chocolate chip pancakes with the Brookers today.
What are you looking forward to?!? (Could be something today, this week, this year… )
