Happy Tuesday! Sorry Andrew for cutting off your head in this picture. Yesterday included getting a tire fixed and having it take so long that we had to go across the way and get something to solve the hanger.
When you haven’t had a Cafe Rio sweet pork salad in a what feels like a million years… it was delicious.
*Brooke and I have been working on our secret handshake these days.
*A new world record for these four women (Emma Coburn, Sydney McLaughlin, Brenda Martinez and Jenny Simpson) at the 4,000 meter distance medley! Simpson finished up the last leg of 1600m in 4:27.66—> WOW. Read more about it here!
*I don’t remember what she was laughing about but I hope this happens often for as long as possible:
*I have this thing with dreams lately where they seem SO real to me. Okay, this has been a problem since my brothers burned my dollar bill in a dream back when I was 8 and it took me a while to forgive them. I sent a text to my mom and sister about my latest dream (long story short… we were on Tower of Terror and it was awful) and my sister just replied back asking how long I was going to be mad at them because of my dream.
*I don’t think I have posted this picture yet but it just makes me happy.
*Just testing out Beretta’s new bed… I think she will stick to her own;)
*Their little personalities get stronger each day and I love it.
*All I want for my bday this year is for my sister to trim my hair and color my roots. I’m really excited about this as you can tell so I’m going to post a picture of her curling her own hair.
*I’m trying to embrace winter a bit more and be like Beretta.
*But all I want to do is be in my bed by 8 with as many blankets as possible… hormones might be doing that too me too ha.
*I was searching for a picture and came across this one the other day. Normally I would just want to delete it because of the dimples on my leg but not anymore. No matter how many miles I run, or how thin I have been in the past… I will always have those dimples on the back of my leg when I sit down (and now when I am just standing they show up)… at the ripe ol’ age of almost 31, I really don’t care anymore:) That feels nice. Picture circa my first apartment on my own.
*Mer sent this book to Andrew to read and he cannot wait. She said the book is amazing.
*According to Brooke, you can never wear enough pink.
*Rapid Reboot sent over these amazing recovery boots to us. Both Andrew and I tried them last night after our speed workouts earlier that day. The compression boots are meant to help improve your blood circulation and help you to recover faster. I’m excited to see if they help me to prevent DOMS. We are going to try them out a bunch before I give all of my thoughts about them but so far… they feel like an amazing massage!
*Trading in the running shoes today for something different…
*I haven’t been skiing for years and years but decided to hit the slopes for a half day tomorrow (look at me embracing winter;). Ski rental $12 and I’m crossing all of my fingers I don’t snap them in half somehow. I used to ski a ton in high school (season’s passes to Park City were $99 when I was in school) but I haven’t been since. Wish me luck.
*Coming for you mountains (minus all of the wires)… I mean I wish it was for a trail run but I’m guessing skiing again will be just as fun.
*I just really love this picture. Also, I’m proud to say we successfully slathered the kids in enough sunblock that they never got sunburned while we were in Hawaii. That was a big goal of mine.
I have had a few different readers ask me about achilles tendinitis. I have never experienced this (knock on wood) so I would LOVE to hear from any of you that have. What helped? How did yours come about? What do you do now to prevent the problem?
–This article was the best one that i have come across for information on achilles problems.
Do you remember your dreams often?
Ski or snowboard? Last time that you went?
Where are you at on accepting your body?
