Just our favorite smoothies to start off our Saturday.
Running didn’t end up happening yesterday morning but I figured it was more than okay because I had a solid week with an 18 miler, some speed on Friday and 51 miles already for the week—> two days off from running this weekend wouldn’t put a big damper on marathon training. We had hours and hours of painting ahead of us (and Andrew’s family meeting us early to help us paint) so a rest day (from running) ended up working out perfectly.
We picked up Beretta and then we were off to the house to paint.
Turns out this yellow wall needed just a little bit of TLC to get it to the gray color that we picked out together.
Andrew was busy spraying the ceiling.
And I am very glad that we were able to get a majority of everything done while the kids are both away. There was a LOT of paint/everything possible everywhere.
I made just a few stops at The Home Depot because we kept forgetting everything. The workers there kept telling me that they would see me again soon whenever I was checking out;)
After that we met my sister and her family to pick out flooring. This little dude is getting too fast to actually catch on camera.
I need his smile on my face during my next marathon.
My sister has many talents and one of her many talents being—> she is AMAZING at picking out colors and finding the absolute best deal possible. She saved us a whole lot of money yesterday. I owe her big time.
The flooring and carpet we picked out. I cannot wait.
The only use of running shoes yesterday was for painting… I always keep my old pairs of shoes to do stuff like this.
We made dinner together and then rested for a bit on the grass before starting the painting again.
Oh and we grabbed a little bit of candy and a movie to finish the night off strong.
PS my brother posted this pic of me as a baby on Facebook recently so I thought I would post it on here too.
Have some random talents outside of running to share with us today?
Done any DIY projects at your house? Painted? This is a whole new thing for me but I am loving it… we have some fun projects ahead.
What do you do with your old running shoes?
How has your weekend running gone?
