I am going to think about this picture.
My mom showed me this picture yesterday and it made me so happy. This is my grandpa when he was 17 years old running at a track meet. He was extremely fast and set state records back in his day. Running was a huge part of his life and he also coached for many years.
I know that when I am racing he must be cheering me on the entire way:)
This picture of him giving his all is what I will be thinking about in Boston when I get tired and need some strength. Sure miss him!
This is Brooke’s latest fun new trick. What you don’t see are the puddles of water all over the apartment after learning this new trick.
The family from Arizona all came over for a taco bar at our house.
Of course I turned mine into a 4 lb salad.
2 things about this salad:
1. How do most people cut their avocado? I always peel mine first and then cut it right off of the seed. It always works out real well for me.
2. This corn salsa from Trader Joe’s is an excellent topper.
For dessert we had something that would make both kids and adults happy. I work hard at keeping my title of the favorite aunt.
Dirt cups with chocolate pudding, crushed up oreos and gummy warms.
We then went over to Megan’s house to get some work done and Brooke made sure to bring her laptop too.
Fact—> Marathon training makes you very hungry all of the time.
Avocado shredded chicken bite sandwiches are a great way to help with your hunger at 11 p.m.
What was the last dessert that you had?
Any runners in your family?!
Who ran cross-country in high school? Track? Anyone run just for fun during high school?
