We got the key yesterday for our new place and we started moving a few things over.
Now that I am out of my last place I can talk a little bit more about why we are so excited to move—> WE WERE LIVING ON THE FOURTH FLOOR. No elevator. It sounds like not that big of a deal but carrying a three year old (her legs magically always get tired right before we get to the stairs), groceries, bags, anything up those stairs multiple times a day was very tiring. There were a few other fun facts about this move being really good for us—> It was too small for the two of us, I lived pretty much next door to an ex which made life awkward often, we didn’t have very much space and it was just time for a big change. While we loved where we were at for the time and have a lot of good memories… I don’t ever want to climb those stairs again in a blizzard while carrying my whole life up the stairs each day. Plus our new apartment feels a lot more homey and bright with some more space which just feels right for the both of us.
Brooke ran around from room to room for a solid hour.
Utah had quite a lot of wind yesterday. PS it may look like I dyed my hair to have an ombre style but really my hair has just grown out a lot since the last time I colored it…. ehhh like two years ago.
I put Brooke to bed at my parents’ house last night because I will be doing my run bright and early today. The movers will be at my house first thing (ummm 4 flights of stairs + Janae + carrying furniture = not a good outcome).
I jumped into using the Hansons Half-Marathon plan just for fun for my next 1/2 marathon because I have read this book a bunch and have always wanted to see how my body would do with their plan. Just testing it out. I’ll keep you updated.
6 x 1 mile this morning… this should be interesting. I used to worry about hard workouts but the light finally turned on in my brain—> who cares if I don’t do the workout perfectly or it is really hard or whatever else I’m worried about. It’s just running. It’s supposed to be hard and I like pushing myself. It’s not supposed to be something I worry about.
I met with the girls for a late sushi date at Happy Sumo where I used to work while I went to BYU. I ate that tuna tataki almost every day that I worked there and it still tastes amazing to me.
Sushi has my heart now and forever.
And then we picked up some cookies on the way home to share while we sat in the car and talked for another hour. I really don’t know what I would do without my girls.
PS as if peeps weren’t awful enough normally… they now have added fruit flavors to their selection.
The Boston Marathon is just a little over a month away and you can check out my post about my tips for this marathon! It was my dream race for many many years and being able to experience it last year (wind, rain and all;) was surreal.
Time for some mile repeats, unpacking and not hiking up 4 flights of stairs (**yes, I realize I do the stair climber at the gym at times but that is totally different;)
What is your dream race?
Following a training plan right now? Which one?
Best and worst part about where you live?!?
Have any nicknames?
