I love absolutely everything about the racing scene—> A million runners everywhere, people accomplishing their goals, everyone cheering each other on and a ridiculous amount of different running shoes/running outfits for me to covet.
So inspiring to see all of these incredible runners. Sara and I spectated where the half marathon and marathon runners separate and this guy was in the top 5ish (I think) for the men.
There is an out and back stretch in the Big Cottonwood Marathon that is about 7 miles long. Candice was not looking forward to this section so I ran it with her and talked her ears off and tried to keep her distracted. She did incredible and BQed despite such a short training cycle after coming back from her stress fracture.
I love that you can see the whole valley from this road but I am not a fan of out and backs in races either. Point to point are my absolute favorites.
Heather had a FIFTEEN MINUTE PERSONAL RECORD!!
The crew all together.
Jason’s Deli closed in our area so when Sara and I remembered that we were close to one after the race we had to go. Living the dream.
Fast forward to some park time (both of us were grumpy because Brooke wasn’t there).
And for dinner some friends came over for the classiest of meals.
We were craving brownies like crazy and I didn’t have any boxed brownie mixes and driving to the store would just take too much effort. SO we made homemade brownies for my first time ever. THESE were SO good. Definitely a new Janae Staple.
BROOKE COMES HOME TODAY. I hope your day is an awesome one too!
