I hope your week is off to a good start! Brooke can’t get enough of the snow. I’m glad she enjoys it;)
This what race week is looking like! 20 miles leading up to the race and then 26.2 miles on Sunday! Today was 4 miles @ a 7:18 pace with 4 x 45 seconds fast!
I never ever ever run the day before a marathon but a lot of people love to do a shake out run… I am not one of those people.
We leave on Friday (my mom and Brooke are coming) and we will get some time in with my brother that lives in Arizona this weekend too!
My mom sent me this picture and asked if that was me… I’m guessing because whenever I go for a run on the ice I end up looking like this:
Because I couldn’t decide between a flavored water or a hot chocolate so I got both (PS I reuse my cups:) and they were both delicious.
I’ve really been into delicious drinks lately… horchata is currently in the lead. Anybody else love horchata?
The only Hershey Kisses that I will ever buy. I love the little candy cane bits in them.
Why does having a Christmas tree up make us want to stay home as much as possible and just stare at it?
Megan is FINALLY back in town so we grabbed salads… getting my salad fill at the start of the week because I cut out salads/vegetables for a few days before the race to keep from making stops on race day.
Brooke was never really a thumb sucker and so I always find it amusing to see my nephew sucking his thumb.
Thoughts? For me it was an easy answer… ELF!
Brooke almost cried tears of joy when they brought out her pancakes like this:
I had a few people email me after this morning’s gift guide about gift ideas other than running gear so I thought I would include just a few awesome deals from my favorite stores today!
Gap, Banana Republic and Old Navy are all offering 40% off of EVERYTHING!!!—> My favorites (some I already have and some are on their way:) are HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE!!! I’m also stocking up on Old Navy’s kiddo pajamas today because they are my favorite.
And a question for a reader!!! Please answer her in the comments if you can relate:)
Do you run the day before a marathon or half-marathon?
-Sometimes before a half but never before a full marathon!
Absolute favorite holiday movie (I know… it’s still November but I would like to get my list ready:)
What was your workout today?
Do you cut out any foods during race week?
