Yesterday I got to run with a guy that ran a 2:40 marathon at Boston a few years back. I am pretty sure for the majority of the 8 miles of running together I quizzed him on every question I could think of about Boston and training. Talking about it all with him made me even more excited and ready to bust a move in 9 days.
8 miles @ 7:25 pace… It was ridiculously windy in the canyon and I think we were the only ones out to brave the wind.
Spring Break has been in full force in Utah and so we went (along with the rest of the state) to the Hogle Zoo for some animal watching.
Brooke loved the seals.
As we were leaving I asked her what her favorite animal was that she saw at the zoo and she told me that the ladybug was her #1. Not the lions, tigers and bears… the ladybug.
I am guessing she is talking about the ladybug from the carousel.
Anytime we are in SLC we have to stop at Trader Joe’s. Brooke fell asleep in my arms as I strolled up and down the aisles drooling over everything and getting some of our favorites. She stayed asleep the entire time and my right arm must have gained about 1 lb of muscle from carrying her the entire time.
I am so mad I didn’t see this before checking out because I totally would have picked it up. I LOVE the partially popped kernels in my bags of popcorn so this must be incredible.
Our other mandatory stop when up north is to Jason’s Deli. The highlights of the salad bar included the caprese salad, roasted garlic hummus and the chocolate pudding in the back.
But the real reason we go to Jason’s Deli—> free ice cream with your meal. As much as you want. And it is the perfect consistency and flavor.
As soon as we got home my throat, body and head started hurting. Looks like between my foot last weekend and a fun little virus now my body is yelling at me to rest so I will. Instead of 10 miles this morning we will be watching movies all day.
Enjoy your Saturday and cross your fingers that Coldeez and laziness work some miracles fast;)
