One of the many things I remind myself about 1 million times after a marathon is that it takes WEEKS to fully recover. Even though it already feels like the marathon was like a month ago, it wasn’t and Josse and I reminded ourselves that with each walk break we took along the way:) I’m happy to be running and recovering well and just reminding myself that recovery from a marathon takes my body a lot longer to bounce back than a half marathon.
We stopped for a selfie with a cow that was using the branch to scratch his back.
Earlier this morning Brooke was really excited about her Utah shirt that we found after thinking for a year that we lost it.
And then she joined me in some yoga.
She’s getting pretty good at it:
Salad for lunch… bet you could have guessed that;) Brown rice, avocado, grilled chicken, veggies and ranch.
We hit up the park after lunch!
And Beretta got in probably 10 miles while we were there:)
It is almost time for one of my favorite races ever!!! Brooke’s favorite too:
Sadly we won’t be in town this year for it (I have to take Brooke to visit her dad that weekend… but we will be there next year for sure and Josse is running it this year). We are going to try to make it to the SLC Haunted 5k though!!!
This was from when I did this race a few years ago and it is still my favorite running outfit ever… still don’t know how I ran a 1:23 half while dressed up like a pirate ha (oh yeah, I was still really angry at life at the time;)
Today I’m giving away a free entry to the SLC Haunted Half and one to the Provo Haunted Half!!!
