It had been way too long since my last date with my niece (aka Brooke’s twin).
Side note—> I highly recommend getting your car detailed if you can anytime soon. It feels like my car is hugging me every time I get in now and I no longer have sticky shoes (a gu exploded on the carpet in my car 2 weeks ago and somehow the detailing people got it all out).
We first went to visit a friend and the girls played while we chatted. Every apartment complex should have a playground.
After that we made dinner together at home. She is quite the little chef and we cooked up some chicken and loads of veggies. It made me really happy that she was wearing my sweatshirt from when I was her age. I always knew that my clothes hoarding tendencies would pay off someday. Now my niece can reap the benefits.
Please refer to the previous post—> I NEEDED a donut. They didn’t have apple fritters so I settled for eating the frosting off of a maple bar. Craving only 25% fulfilled.
You know you have really made it in life when you have a pair of slippers specifically for your house and a different pair of slippers for you to wear all around town. I live in these slippers when I am not in running shoes. I also have been pretending these sweats are real pants to wear everywhere.
And I wonder why I haven’t gotten remarried;)
When I dropped off my niece I had to share some love with my favorite family of SIX (ps my sister’s new little baby is doing awesome and loves to eat every 20 minutes—> it runs in our family;)!
These people are my absolute favorites. My sister has always been my biggest healthy eating example. She is also so good at always feeding her kids complete and balanced meals and I pretty much want to be just like her when I grow up. I knew she would be stoked about this yogurt!
She also LOVES free things and so I of course had to share the love of our favorite yogurt with her. Every day I have been drinking and loving their OP Organic Protein Smoothies (15 grams of protein in each one). Perfect post-run goodness.
And just like that, I am my sister’s favorite sibling again.
Time for the long run! Josse can’t run on Saturday and I can’t possibly do a long run on my own so we are off to tackle the mileage today at early.com.
Only 7 more long runs until the marathon. One of those a 20 miler and another a 22 miler. That is a long time to be running. Marathon training is a very strange thing.
