And 29 is off to a very great start. It is very exciting to me that Brookie is old enough to blow out the candles with me.
Let’s start with dessert. My mom had ice cream sundaes for us and a big ol’ apple pie for dessert.
Mer (my grandma… she is the coolest ever) brought over her Valentine’s cards for us.
Looks like we are going to Yogurtland today:) PS my grandma’s penmanship is perfect.
I have requested my mom’s lasagna pretty much every birthday that I can remember. I don’t know what it is about it but it is just my all-time favorite meal.
Brooke loves it just as much as I do. It’s in our DNA.
The plate of happiness. Marathon training calls for carbs.
Curly has graduated to the big kid’s table. How do they grow up so ridiculously fast!?
We did the present thing.
And Brooke took over the bag of popcorn that my mom gave me. All I wanted this year for my birthday was a gift card to get my car cleaned and food. Priorities.
We were all quite the party animals! PS the way Brooke has her arm makes it look like she is taking a selife:)
Oh and at church I got a One Direction Valentine and I was pretty excited about it.
Monday: 10 miles @ 7:43 pace! Zoned out to music on the treadmill and I don’t remember much:)
Tuesday: 8 miles @ 8:00 pace.
Wednesday: 5 MILE REPEATS! 10.3 miles total. Warm-up & 5 mile repeats @ 6:17, 6:15, 6:14, 6:15 & 6:10. .25 mile recovery jog + 1-2 minutes of getting a drink etc after each mile repeat. Difficult workout for me… turns out that sleep before a tough workout is always a good idea. I really just had to just get through each mile one at a time and forget that there were still more to do.
Thursday: Taught spin and didn’t run.
Friday: 16 miles at an 8:00ish pace (forgot to start our Garmin at one point)! Birthday run in the sunshine and with friends. Pretty darn perfect.
Saturday: 10 treadmill miles @ 7:33 average pace.
Sunday: OFF! Rest day!
54.3 miles total. My excitement for Boston is building more and more each week.
How old are you turning this year?!
What was your best run last week? Details please!
Favorite dish that your mom or dad makes?
Do you have a different name for your grandparents?
-We have always called my mom’s parents Mer and Grandad!
