I thought it would be fitting to run near pumpkins for my Halloween run. I wish I would have put together a costume or something but at least I tried to stick with the black and purple color coordination to celebrate.
Kind of beautiful to see hundreds of pumpkins as you are running by. I LOVE going other places for some time but I’m always very happy to be home in Utah again. I’m very glad that Andrew feels the same way about Utah that I do. We will be here for a very long time.
I needed a lot of stretching after my run today and these two joined me. I also did a 2.5 minute plank (gotta love seeing some improvements) and 4 x 10 squats (without any weights:). I think Brooke missed Beretta and Knox the most while she was gone for the weekend.
A little bit after I got home from my run, Andrew and Beretta set out for a few miles. Andrew always drives her down to a path so she can run free which is her favorite kind of running.
Dogs are lucky because they get to run as hard and fast as they want and then just lay down for the entire rest of the day.
Andrew’s back has not been feeling great (I think the hotel beds mess him up) and so Brooke has helped him out by walking on his back for him.
Sorry for a blood picture but I used to ALWAYS kick my ankles while I run… ALWAYS. I don’t do it very often but every now and then I’ll kick it a few times out on a run and boom:
PS I need to get back in the habit of wearing matching socks.
I made Kodiak pancakes for Brooke and used the cookie cutter to attempt making them look like pumpkins. She was impressed so I’m going to go ahead and pat myself on the back.
My new favorite kind of breakfast… eggs, turkey bacon, tomato, lettuce and some hot chocolate in a donut themed cup.
And now we are busy making caramel apples to take to my family’s house before trick-or-treating. I was telling Andrew that when I was around the age of 8 I would wear one rollerblade and one tennis shoe while I was out going from door to door for candy. The shoe made it easier to navigate up/down stairs and the rollerblade allowed me to glide along the sidewalks a lot faster. I was all about finding the most efficient trick-or-treating method. While we are talking about rollerblades, the only time I ever broke any bones was while rollerblading. My brother was racing me home from a friend’s house (he was driving a car and I was on the rollerblades on the sidewalk) and when I got to the grass portion I tried running (I was obviously winning at this point;) and fell pretty hard.
How’s that for a tangent? I hope you have an amazing time tonight doing whatever you are doing!!!
Wish us luck with our homemade double broiler;)
Ever broken any bones? How’d you do it?
