So this is exciting. Who else got into the St. George Marathon? It is going to be quite the party.
Fun fact—> Brookers is really enjoying her daily piano lessons.
Utah is still pretending that it is supposed to be snowing in the mountains and cold outside even though it is May so soup just felt right last night. I haven’t made my Chicken Cream Cheese Chili for a very long time and it has now reentered my life. Once again, the crockpot makes life so easy and delicious.
After dinner I had a glimpse into what our entire summer is going to look like:
And I ended the night with the best chocolate chip cookie I have ever had in my life. I am not messing around when I say that. The creator of this cookie has spent years perfecting the recipe to produce this perfect cookie. Recipe will be up soon!
As I was riding along my spin bike yesterday I was rereading from one of my favorite books. A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. This highlighted part is my favorite:
I love the idea of having control over hard situations and being able to choose how you will react and what the situation will do to you.
I met the girls at 5:15 for a workout this morning and made it two miles. My right quad is really not feeling so great and this morning I just couldn’t run through it. I will go on in to the doc and see what is up but I am guessing I’ll just need a few days- a week off (fingers crossed) and then I will be right back out there. The marathon is only a month a way… silly body.
I am glad I read that above portion from my book yesterday because it is easy to get really bitter/upset/frustrated when we are injured/almost injured/don’t hit the times we want after working so hard… BUT I’ll just take the next few days to get BETTER, stronger, get more sleep, hit up the pool and bike and cuddle Brookers.
Who else got into the St. George Marathon?
Do you have a favorite (or a few) book? What is it?!?
What did you have for dinner last night? Are you a crockpot user?
