I really have no idea where she gets her love/interest/obsession for the Garmin from? She was a fan of the touchscreen and I think the kid in the red costume was a little jealous of her electronics.
My view for the .25 miles. I am just hoping that when she is older we will be that mother/daughter duo traveling the world doing all of the cool marathons in different countries together.
Maybe Brooke can teach me a thing or two to help me in my dating game;)
We celebrated post race by trying a kronut together. I drive by this place all of the time and I always want to try it and so we finally pulled over. It was incredible.
And a clip of the final sprint:
Our Sunday was even more low-key than normal. Trick-or-treating sucked out all of our energy.
Brooke asked to do a picnic so we ate pb and j on the grass after church.
For dinner my mom made the stew that she has made since I was 2 years old—> comfort food at it’s finest. Plus rolls and salad = we were all stuffed and hung out in the living room for awhile.
And the lowest part about our Sunday—> my phone somehow ended up in the washing machine. Turns out that phones won’t turn back on after an event like that. Who needs a phone anyways?
Marathon Training Last Week
Monday: 9 miles @ 7:09 average. .5 miles @ 9:00ish, 5 miles @ 7:13, 3 miles @ 6:35, .5 miles @ 8:15ish.
Tuesday: 5 miles (with Josse wahoo) @ 8:24 average pace.

Thursday: 4 miles @ 8:28 pace
Friday: 19 mile long run. First 11 @ 7:45 pace and last 8 @ 6:30 pace. A few breaks along the way for water etc. I was exhausted by the end and just hung out on the grass for a few minutes until my legs were ready to walk again:)
Saturday: 3 miles @ an 8:30 pace on the treadmill. Lots of squats and stretching afterwards.
47.5 miles for the week.
PS I brought out my winter running gear from the back of the closet. Tank/shorts weather… I hope you are back real soon. Also, my goal this winter is to fall on the ice less than 5 times while running (a pretty far-fetched goal for me).
Any traumatic phone stories to share with me? Help me feel a little less alone.
