Today’s lunch was just what the doctor ordered. I have known these two girls for 8 or so years and the three of us all got divorced right around the same time. It has been so beyond helpful to have each other to lean on, learn from and to have the support from one another because we understand exactly how it feels during the really rough times.
I realized today that we are all in a much better place now and that felt really good. We’re just getting stronger and stronger and rocking that single mom thing.
The lemonade at Chick-Fil-A just brightens everyone’s day. If you haven’t tried it yet, you need to.
Now let’s rewind through some other parts of the day:
Brooke and I are wearing matching shirts so that is clearly a highlight.
Brooke did some sprints while at Target.
I got to the gym first thing this morning and was craving a sweaty and endorphin filled run. My body is still recovering and I could tell that it wasn’t wanting to run the same paces that it was doing before the marathon but it felt good to get them moving for a little bit of speed.
4 minutes at around a 7:50, 2 minutes @ 6:30…. repeated until I hit 8 miles. 7:16 average pace. The gym was crazy hot this morning and so my wish for a sweaty workout was granted. I left feeling like a million bucks, it is amazing what a little bit of sweat will do for ya.
It is also amazing what your favorite shoes and favorite treadmill at the gym will do for ya. All of you gym goers—> you know you have a favorite treadmill too.
One more picture from trail running yesterday. We are making it a date each Monday to meet for some miles in the mountains together.
Now I’ve got to figure out what to wear tonight… Brooke told me she is taking me out for a special dinner;)
I hope your day is going great!! See you in the morning and thanks for the comments this morning:)
