A mountain selfie that did not exactly turn out how I was hoping it would.
I debated leading up to my run over whether or not I should wear a coat. I decided to wear it and then at approximately 1.4 miles into our run I was really hot. I buried it (it is my favorite coat and I couldn’t risk it being stolen) under a bunch of leaves on the side of the trail and grabbed it on the way back to our cars towards the end. I just can’t handle wearing a lot of layers unless it is freezing out.
We did the 15 miles @ a 7:56 average pace. 7:56 has been my long run pace the last few weeks. It is weird.
5 of the middle miles at up-tempo pace of 7:04 average. Felt pretty strong for the first 4 but that last one was tough.
Josse and I had a good discussion about how hard math is towards the end of your run when you start getting really tired. When I am running it takes me about 4 times as long as normal to solve a simple math problem (i.e. how far we still need to go, pace stuff etc). When I am on the treadmill I am pretty good at figuring out all of the math of my run/pace but outside it takes me a bit. Also, weird. Anyone else? This especially happens towards the end of a marathon, I just don’t even try to figure out all of the numbers and I just run.
Brooke has been looking forward to the local carousel all week and we finally made it over there.

We also had quite an intense game of bowling.
Strike. I was so proud.
Get ready for your heart to absolutely melt. My good friend Paige just got the sweetest puppy you will ever meet. I just want to take him home. Somebody convince my landlord to allow pets. Please.
Part 1 of dinner: Turkey, avocado and feta (hiding under the turkey burger) salad. Part 2 of dinner: The rest of Brooke’s pot of Annie’s mac & cheese.
I am a sucker for buying any candy that has the word NEW on it. I feel like it is my responsibility to do a review on the blog. My thoughts—> The purple bag of skittles is still by far the best but the peach flavor in the Orchards bag is REALLY good.
Happy Super Bowl Sunday! I am going all out this year and bringing a veggie tray. Really overdoing it:)
You watching the Super Bowl today? Who are you cheering for?
Making anything delicious to eat during the game?
