Remember how last winter my running group and I would go sit in the river after our long runs to take an ice bath? It would be about 20 degrees outside in the first place and then we thought it would be a fun idea to go sit in the river for 8 minutes after our long runs. I guess I am not hardcore anymore or something because you couldn’t pay me to get in that cold cold river again.
The 17 miler was a success. 2 reasons why—> I kept telling myself all week that it was going to be a great run. We fueled and hydrated like a boss.
I think the endurance side of marathon training is also just starting to kick in again. We were both a lot happier throughout the entire run. Back to the normal laughing and talking each other’s ears off for the entire run.
For some reason our bodies just prefer the exact same pace for every single long run that we do. Another 7:56 day in the books.
17 miles done and back to my parents’ house before Brooke woke up. That felt good.
Brooke and I take Saturdays seriously.
Just some pony rides while gazing off into the horizon:
And then a random ‘winter’ party at the outdoor shopping mall.
Some reindeer even made an appearance.
One of my favorite humans ever is getting hitched in March. She was in town so we went partied hard;)
We went to Communal which is on my list of my top favorite 5 Utah Restaurants. I only snapped a picture of our appetizers but there were about 10 more plates of goodness that arrived to our table.
17 miles in the morning = the need for a pie shake at night. They literally blend up a piece of pie (we had apple cobbler and also the mint oreo one) with ice cream.
Enjoy your Sunday!!!!!!!!
I need you to tell us your list of your 5 favorite restaurants in your city!
How did you spend your Saturday night?
What type of pie would you put in your pie shake?
