It had been a week since our last run together so it was about time that we got out for seven miles this morning. We are looking forward to the time when we start training again for a race (probably the beginning of January) so that we are out training together more often. Seven miles was a great way to start off our Monday.
The views were beautiful too! When I am running by myself I always stay in busy areas but it is extra nice to run with somebody because then we get to go to the quieter trails/locations.
Beretta is usually excited when I get home from a run but I think this time she was just disappointed in me for not taking her along. I knew Andrew was going to be taking her later but she didn’t know that;)
The kids think that Andrew is their trampoline. I don’t think he minds;)
Everybody missed Beretta while we were gone. When we were at Disney I said something about us being on family vacation and Brooke said, “The whole family isn’t here mom… Beretta is not here.” Yep, she is part of the family.
We then said Goodbye to Knox until Wednesday!
Brooke loves to try to stick her face in between me and Andrew if we are ever going in for a kiss. She is getting pretty fast.
Still recovering from Disneyland over here a bit!
We made it to Costco to pick up some food for our empty refrigerator and Brooke used my coat as a leash so that I couldn’t leave her side (unless its was to get her more samples).
A heavenly lunch! Bagels with an egg/zucchini/squash mixture and avocado. I remember many many years ago being very afraid of egg yolks and only eating egg whites… I am very glad I realized how good whole eggs taste and how good they are for us!
Somebody’s happy she discovered pockets in her pants.
BE CAREFUL OUT THERE WHILE RUNNING ON THE SNOW:
Three running articles to check out!
1. How Neuroscientists Explain the Mind-Clearing Magic of Running—> YES YES YES!
“A good run can sometimes make you feel like a brand-new person. And, in a way, that feeling may be literally true.”
2. LOVED what Rachele Schulist shares with her experience of running underweight (which resulted in a lot of unhappiness due to obsessing over food and stress fractures) and where she is now.
“I made myself just let go. I let go to the insecurities and lies I was telling myself because I know how I am and what I stand for. And I stand for doing what is right and what is healthy.”
3. AHHHHHH wouldn’t this be amazing?
This article explains how Nike is going about this with these three athletes and all of the stats. These athletes will have to run a 4:34 pace in order to break the 2 hour mark for the marathon!
