There is just something about Sunday that makes my internal clock tell me that it is time to start baking first thing in the morning. My sister has a special thing for EVERYTHING COOKIES (not going to lie, the Corn Flakes scared me away but once I tried them in a cookie I decided there is no other way to eat a cookie) and so we made her a batch.
Coconut + oatmeal + chocolate chips + cornflakes = you need to try them.
Brooke told me yesterday (this is a direct quote), “Mom, isn’t it nice that we live next to the mountains.” I think she has heard me say things like that a million times and I’m glad she adores the mountains too.
We stopped by the park after my sister’s house for a few minutes.
PS It was still pretty windy yesterday but I can’t imagine how bad it must have been on Saturday for the Salt Lake Marathon people. It was crazy windy… ROCKSTARS!!!!!
We were both standing up in this below pic at church.
For dinner last night I was in charge of the salad. A few of my beliefs about salads: 1. There must be so many toppings on a salad that you question if there is even lettuce in there. 2. Jicama is my current favorite salad topping. There is just something about the crunch from jicama that I love very much. Also, this dressing is money.
This was music to my eyes;) This made me feel like summer is just right around the corner.
We had stir fry for dinner too and then Megan pulled out this beauty. She layered—> cake, pudding, whipped cream and snickers. It was everything you could imagine.
When one of your friends works at Qualtrics you end up matching your other friends often:)
From my mom last night… this hits close to home ha;)
Training last week didn’t go exactly as planned. I ran on Monday (7 miles), Tuesday (12 miles), Wednesday (6 miles) and then took the rest of the week off. I’ll get out today for a run but whenever I take a bit of a break from running I always go into the first run back feeling like I’m not going to remember how to do it?!?! This especially happens after I take a break after a marathon It’s like my brain assumes that after years of running I am just going to magically forget how to run after some time off and all fitness will be lost judging by the fact that I huff and puff walking up the stairs ha. It’s weird and I might be the only one who does this but I just remind myself that it takes a lot more time than I think to really lose your fitness and I’ll most definitely remember how to run again ha!
From a previous post that I wrote and quotes from Hanson’s.
HAPPY MARATHON MONDAY!!!!
Here is when everything starts (times listed are EST)!!!
You can watch the marathon LIVE——> HERE!!!!! I can last about 30 minutes tops watching any other sport on tv but when it comes to running… I could watch it all day long. If you want to you can also read about the top contenders for Boston!
Will you be watching today? Anyone that you know running Boston today? Who has run Boston in the past… what year(s)?
Have any salad topping musts lately?
How long away from running does it take for you to feel like you’ve lost some of your fitness?
How was your weekend running? Long run or race? Anyone run SLC?
