I left Eugene at 8 am yesterday and decided that a run was pretty much necessary before leaving. The track where the USA Olympic Track and Field Trials were held was in the area right about where my hand is. I loved how close we were to everything!
When I left the house at about 5:50 in the morning it was perfectly light outside. PS whenever I run somewhere new I always take a picture of the street signs just in case I need to enter the address into my phone to get home:) PPS I only run on Sundays if I am somewhere ‘new to me’ without Brooke because it means I get some time outside on the roads.
10 miles total and when I got back to the house somebody asked me how many miles I ran last week… ummm (I did the math in my head real quick because I hadn’t thought about it yet) 67.5… MY HIGHEST weekly mileage ever. In my entire life. I had no idea that I did that many miles last week but somehow it happened. I didn’t do any speed work but still… that is a lot of running for me so I’ll cut way back this week!
And then it was time to leave… 2 more pics of the whole group first!
Amazing girls. I miss them already. This was my 5th yearly trip with Brooks and I see about 59 more in the future.
I boarded the plane and fell asleep sitting straight up in my seat for the entire flight. Andrew and Brooke picked me up and then we made our way back into town.
First, a donut though.
Brooke and Berretta are the best of friends.
Andrew made us dinner.
Oh and a bunch of people were wondering about Brooke’s braid on Saturday…. Megan D did it. Andrew and Megan’s husband go mountain biking together and so Brooke was over there that morning for an hour and Megan did the amazing braid (she is good at everything). Maybe she can teach Andrew how to braid like that but she is going to have to teach me too;)
She is pretending she is a dog!
And her gorgeous nails from her date with Andrew.
Happy to be home with everybody.
Andrew sent this to me yesterday morning. Brooke doesn’t eat the cookie/donut/anything… just the frosting and sprinkles.
And the last thing I did last night—> I added my new Desi shoelaces!
I hope you have an awesome day! We have a parade, some swimming, a bbq and lots of fireworks. It should be a good one and I hope yours is too!
