It is one of the most important days of the entire year. It is a day to celebrate the amazingness of running (PS just to remind you of the other very important holiday this week… National Donut Day is on FRIDAY!!! I hear that donut shops are giving out free donuts to celebrate on Friday. You are welcome for keeping you informed on such important matters).
I did a mile on the treadmill. The leg feels pretty darn good but my whole body feels creaky. Who knows what I will do next weekend about the race. I will do a few runs in between now and then (and I also have a doc appointment to get his approval) and I will probably decide the night before the race.
It sure was nice to be running again though. I was pretty dead by the end of my workout because I did weights (shoulders, biceps and triceps) with my sister (she always kills me off) and then the elliptical too.
Sporting my Brooks Ravenna 5s lately. They are still pretty light but they offer a little more support than my normal PureFlows which I need right now.
Proud parent moment—> Brooke is coloring within (most of the) lines and she even picks out the correct colors for different things.
Dinner last night was delicious mainly because of these two ingredients. I love the tortillas that come uncooked so that you can cook them on the stove yourself.
I put chicken, red peppers and onions in the crockpot for a while and then topped them with avocado and the corn salsa.
A little while later Brooke and I went over to my sister’s house and they were eating whole wheat banana and blueberry pancakes and so of course I had to have one.
Summer nights, how did we go so long without these?
Popsicles for the kids (and one big kid) and a stroll around the neighborhood.
And at about 10:30 pm Megan and I started our business meeting. We are going to be collaborating on some pretty fun stuff coming up and so we hung out at the kitchen table and spent 10% of the time working and 90% of the time being ridiculous and drinking Muscle Milk. I am thinking our ‘business meetings’ need to be during the day from now on although we did have a lot of fun last night.
