Things were real festive at the gym today. Pretty much everybody was in green and one guy brought his bagpipe and was playing it right in front of the treadmills for a good 15 minutes straight. The entertainment of people watching today was on point. I also forgot to wash off my eye makeup last night so I had some sweet raccoon eyes.
I had 10 miles on my schedule with 10 fast pick-ups thrown in there. Average pace of 6:56 for the ten miles. The pick-ups felt pretty tough (5:48 pace) but I am happy because the other miles (in the low 7’s) felt comfortable. That is something that I love about fartleks/intervals—> the really tough paces make the somewhat tough paces feel like a piece of cake in comparison.
I saw the new Cinderella movie (I absolutely loved it) the other day and a quote from the movie really stood out to me:
“Time passes and pain turns into memory.”
After my divorce there were certain places around town I just could not go. It was too painful. I felt too much when I would go to these places and so I avoided them altogether because of the feelings that they would bring me.
It has been a year and eight months and most of the pain has turned into a memory. I am able to go to places (like the Provo Bakery below) that remind me of my ex and just smile. I can think about the good times that we did have and be happy rather than feel all of the pain associated with my divorce. It took a heck of a lot of time to get to that point but man, I am glad that the pain is just a memory now and not an every day (every minute) struggle like it used to be!
If I have a house at some point in my life, just expect donut floors in the kitchen.
Donuts and holidays go hand and hand for us.
We then went over to my sister’s house for some trampoline time while my sister and I caught up on life. I hadn’t seen her since Sunday so clearly we had a lot to talk about;)
There was a sweet potato somewhere under all of that shredded chicken.
After a shower (it’s about time) I put on one of Sarah’s shirts!
“It’s about more than just loving the run, its running for something…for someone. Run Far Gear started as a way to give back to the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. Which is why 10% of all profits are donated directly to CHaD. By wearing this inspirational apparel you’re not only showing that you love to run, but you’re also showing that you care.”
***ALSO, 20% of sales of all blue and yellow items from now until 4/20 go to Girls on the Run in the name of Team Stonyfield and the Boston Marathon!
Love it. Check out her stuff HERE!
