A Jamba Juice date is just kind of necessary some days.
Especially if peanut butter is involved in the cup…
Just having a chat with the dog in the car next to us in the parking lot.
I’m sure we are all just loving how it is starting to get dark at 5:30 pm.
And I’m sure all parents are loving how daylight savings has messed up sleeping schedules (she was so tired but my mom was taking a picture of me in my running jacket ((I’ll do a full review on it after I test it out)) and she ran over saying she wanted to be in the pic).
A little boot camp action and once again I was reminded that in order for it to not be crazy hard I should probably be a little more consistent with strength training.
I put minestrone soup and avocado on top of my sweet potato for dinner… studies show that anything tastes good on top of a sweet potato.
Caffeine, I miss you dearly but a drink run for some Sprite (with raspberry flavoring) with the girls every now and then is pretty great too.
Hmmmm how did she get so tall all of the sudden… ps she fell asleep for the night at 6:15 so I have a feeling we will be starting our party this morning in the 4 o’clock hour.
Somehow Brooke has forgotten all about her Halloween stash but I most definitely haven’t… ps I couldn’t believe how many people handed out full size candy items this year?!
Loved these 10 Fun Facts—> did you know that Meb swore off doing another marathon after his first one— “you just saw my first and last one.”
And some random fun facts that I would like to share with you:
-Long runs left before race day—> 13.1, 20, 15 and 10 miles! This week is a cut-back week (39 miles total for the week) and then the next two weeks will be hard and then a two week taper!
-It is Curly’s b-day today… she was only two years old when I first started the blog. You guys have seen her grow up:)
-One of the best things about being the only adult in your apartment—> you get to choose the temperature setting at all times. I’ve been freezing lately so it is set to a comfortable 74 degrees right now.
-I’m pretty stoked about the logistics for my upcoming marathon because we are staying at a hotel that has a race shuttle to the starting line that leaves right from the hotel. Talk about convenience.
-My mom, Brooke and I are heading down to St. George on Friday together and staying with her best friend and I’ll go run the race in the morning… it’s going to be quite the party this weekend too.
-Adele’s new album comes out on November 20th… her music speaks to my soul.
-I’ve really been wanting some new ab/core routines. I’ve done the same ones over and over again for way too long and need a change… please share what you do/videos/websites etc!
-I finally finished ‘Why Not Me’ by Mindy Kaling… I just want to be her friend in real life. She is hilarious. Now I need a new book.
-I get to meet Josse for a run this morning. While all of this solo training over the last few months has been good for me to learn how to push myself on my own, I am looking forward to having a training buddy to work hard with again. We’ve started planning our 2016 racing schedule out together… anyone else already mapping out next year’s races?
-The older Brooke gets= the more she talks= the more I get to finally see inside her little brain and personality. I wish you could join us for our car conversations because she is quite the comedian.
Give me your sentence for the day or share a fun fact with us!!
