Thank you for all of your sweet comments yesterday, you guys are the best!!!
I think the best kind of date (whether with friends or your main squeeze) is a running date. Some of my absolute best conversations with my sister, friends and boys that I have been in a relationship with have occurred during a run. I think running just brings the best out of people and it is such a bonding experience. People seem to be more open with others when running and accomplishing something hard together just makes it all that much better.
If a boy asks me out on a run date that includes trail running and donuts after… He will probably win my heart:)
Brooks sent on over the Infiniti 7” short tight III and the Bring It Racerback to my Valentine’s running date this year:) Josse is the absolute best to run with and she helps to keep me positive, motivated and laughing during all of our runs. She makes training for races even more fun.
Josse is obsessed with both the shorts and the tank. She says the length of the shorts are perfect and that the top is so comfortable that it feels like you aren’t even wearing anything:)
We accomplished our 16 miles. We did a HILLY!!!!!! course. We ran up ‘the beast’ within the first 30 minutes of our run. The beast is about a mile long hill and it burns so good. I forgot to wear my watch and Josse forgot to restart hers after a stop so we aren’t sure about our average pace. It was probably around 8:00ish.
Overall, it was so nice to do an entire long run in the daylight, with friends and with the perfect weather. My endurance has decided to come back to me and I felt great. I just need to remember in the future that it always takes a few weeks (usually closer to 5 or 6) of training for a marathon before the long run feels good again for me.
I am hoping these hills will get me ready for Heartbreak Hill!
There happened to be lots of food yesterday because that is the only proper way to celebrate a birthday.
The sister and her new baby came over and delivered my happiness—> aka candy.
There was my favorite salmon salad.
With a cupcake before dinner and some froyo after dinner. This flavor is a winner.
The three of us have been going to dinner on my birthday together since 2014 and will continue to until at least 2054.
What are you up to today!? Long run?
Any good Valentine’s Day plans?
Had any good run dates? Share the details!
What was your Friday night dinner?
