Congrats to all of the runners today at the Boston Marathon!!! Wow.
*Atsede Baysa of Ethiopia took first for the women with a time of 2:29:18 and talk about amazing—> she fell behind at mile 22 by 37 seconds but managed to pull back up and WIN. I loved watching her fight back for the lead… so inspiring.
*LOVE this picture of Lemi Berhanu Hayle after winning! Pure joy!!!!
*Brooke was quite into watching the first part of the marathon while eating her vanilla peanut butter packet.
*I think watching the marathon inspired Brooke to run rather fast at the park later on:) Check out that form!
*I watched the second half of the marathon while running at the gym. Running while watching running is quite fun. Imagining the paces that they are running while you are running (and sweating like crazy) makes you realize even more how incredible the elites are for running the paces that they do. 8 miles today for me at a 7:55 pace.
*Brooke had a playdate with her best friend today which is the highlight of her week currently.
*SEASON TWO is now on… I was pretty excited when this popped up on Netflix the other day.
*Still my favorite stretch. Try it now. Place your back foot against the wall with your knee just a few inches away from the wall and stretch out those hip flexors!
*She is getting so sneaky… I don’t know how she finds her way into my bed but she is getting really good at it. PS the other night I found her sleep walking?!? I think it was a one time thing but I’m kind of nervous now.
*I added 1/2 an avocado to my smoothie this morning. My smoothie turned out extra creamy and I’m always a huge fan of the great fats in avocados! Protein powder, frozen banana/blueberries, milk and almond butter also in there!
*Just in case you need some tips for the jogging stroller! You can read mine HERE!
*Talk about the perfect running song—> I’m Born to Run!!!!
*Parent Trap was one of my ALL-TIME favorite movies ever as a kid… this made me laugh:
*What we are having for dinner tonight in case you want to join us and have the same thing:) I’ll be using my Cilantro dressing instead this time though!
*Enjoy the rest of your Monday and we will talk soon!!!
