Two stops were made on today’s 8 mile (7:39 average) run. PS preschool has been a win-win so far for us… she loves going there and I love being able to go out for a run while she is there.
First stop during my run—> my sister’s house. I had a strong feeling that she probably was missing me big time and really wanted to see me (plus I was thirsty;) and so as I was running by her house I made a quick pit stop!
Second, I stopped to take a picture of this tree because I fell in love with it and it is the prettiest tree I have seen this fall… it needed to be documented.
I am pretty sure for the majority of the run I thought about how good it feels to be running with a happy stomach. Maybe I was supposed to miss the marathon at the beginning of the month so that I get to enjoy October running temperatures now… after a marathon I always take a bunch of time off to recover but since I missed it I am out on the roads still:)
After my run I spent some time with the foam roller (my calves get so ridiculously tight). I am extending my marathon training (ps still not sure exactly which one I will be doing) by a good amount of time which means I need to be EXTRA CAREFUL to avoid injuries. My body is tired already so injury prevention and loads of rest will be key to get to the starting line.
We got to spend some time after school with some of our favorites!
While we were there Brooke found her new best friend…
And a few pictures from last night….
Just a couple of Cornbelly’s regulars. This was the best scary face that I could do.
We lasted in the corn maze about 2.3 minutes before leaving because they wouldn’t let us run in there. Rude.
This food may not look good but it was delicious and my stomach felt great afterwards. These bowls of lettuce, noodles and chicken were from a Vietnamese food truck and I might just have to follow this food truck around town from now on.
Brooke actually went to bed at my mom’s house at 6:30 last night (she fell asleep while we were driving there) and slept for 12 hours straight! We relaxed on the couch while she slept for a bit and caught up with my mom.
Enjoy the rest of your day and we’ll see ya tomorrow!
Are you a fan of food trucks? Do you have a favorite one?
What was your lunch today?
On a scale from 1-10… 10 being amazing… how was your run today?
It seems like a lot of the big races this fall have happened already but is anyone currently training for a race that is happening before the end of the year?
