My next race is just 2 weeks away. I love the half marathon distance and so I am really looking forward to this one. The Provo City Half Marathon (they have a great 5k too!) is one of my all-time favorites. The last time I ran this race I was 6 months pregnant and I loved everything about it. The busses were on time, everything was really organized and the weather at this time of year is awesome!
The race starts at South Fork and then runs through Provo Canyon (aka my favorite place to run) and finishes in downtown Provo. It is a fast course and at the end they have amazing french toast (yes, one of the main reasons I love doing this race). COME DO IT WITH ME. Brooke will be along the course cheering everyone on.
Speaking of races… GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE AT BOSTON ON MONDAY!! Brooke and I will be watching on tv from home and cheering you on. Also, good luck to all of you Salt Lake City racers tomorrow. The SLC Marathon was my first one ever!
PS I LOVED this article about what the elites do for their last hard workout before the marathon!
I am having the hardest time getting up early to run lately (even though I have been going to bed crazy early?!?) so my sweetest mom played with the Brookers so I could go out in the sunshine and run an easy 7 miles. Just me, the running trail and Regina Spektor (her songs speak to my soul).
Coming back to this girl. The best.
I was able to eat a salad for the first time in weeks (if you missed it a few posts back, I have giardia) without feeling sick afterwards. My doctor said to steer clear of dairy for awhile because of the giardia and I have been and it has been helping so much. I miss you ice cream and I will make up for lost time in a few weeks.
Turkey and cranberry salad with poppyseed dressing, you were delightful.
Brooke has two things that she is currently obsessed with.
1. This baby doll. She wants to take it everywhere and she is constantly hugging it and trying to feed the baby whatever she is eating (ps I am not asleep in the picture, just mid-sentence and mid-blinking).
2. Her new backpack. She sees her cousins wearing them all of the time and so I finally got her one of her own. It will be interesting to see what she puts into this backpack of hers. She was very mad at me for having her take it off to go to bed last night.
And of course my night ended at a candy store. I am always overwhelmed in this particular store because there are just too many good choices.
Anyone reading have to avoid dairy? How long have you had to do this?
