Andrew and I absolutely LOVED your comments yesterday, thank you. He said he wants to guest post on the blog more often so get excited to have some breaks from me;)
I woke up Friday morning feeling a lot better than I did on Thursday and went for a 2.3 mile run. Earlier on in the week I decided I was going to do 10 miles on Friday but running after feeling sick is not as fun as it should be plus I hadn’t really eaten much so I just went out to get a little fresh air and to move for a bit.
The Pure Flow’s felt amazing. I have a feeling I’m really going to become obsessed with these shoes. For those of you that didn’t love the 5’s, I think the 6’s are going to suck you in again:)
Rewind to first thing in the morning yesterday. Somehow the kids snuck into our bed and squished Andrew off of the bed. I didn’t even notice them come into the room (I’m a deep sleeper) but Andrew did ha and he was on the couch.
Brooke then got to rolling out her feet before her weekend in Boise… I’m sure she wants to get plenty of running around in so she spent some preventative time on her feet.
Then in the afternoon we said goodbye to Knox until Wednesday. It was an amazing 11 days all together and we already can’t wait to see him again.
And then we were off to Idaho (Brooke’s first time there so she was thrilled). We dropped off Beretta at Andrew’s parent’s house and then got on the road.
When Brooke holds Andrew’s hand she uses both of her hands to do so. She really loves her ‘Dada’ (what Brooke chose to call Andrew).
After being sick and not eating much besides one yogurt all day, real food tastes even better than usual. I was so ready to dive into this salad and it tasted better than ever. Brooke’s Cafe Rio excitement expression below.
And then somewhere along the way we stopped for ice cream.
PS a few minutes into our drive Brooke was telling us about how much she was missing Beretta. Their relationship is tough as nails.
5.5 hours later and we were there!! When deciding how to get certified as a running coach I knew I wanted to go through Road Runners Club of America. They listed all of the places they offer the Level 1 courses around the Untied States and Boise was the closest one to us. Andrew drove us up and he and Brooke are having a special date weekend together while I get to go learn about running all day (today and tomorrow).
Andrew made sure to bring both his and Brooke’s bike. They’ll probably get in some tough mountain biking while we are here;)
And then we made it to the hotel. I’m pretty sure that Brooke would love for us to move into a hotel if she could. She’s already talking about the continental breakfast up ahead in her future.
I’ll do a quick run in the morning (very needed when I’ll be sitting all day… although wouldn’t it be great if a group run was part of the curriculum today:) and then it’s note taking time. PS I’ve wanted to go back to school for the last few years and this kind of feels like I am for a second. So excited to be learning, studying and taking a test again;)
Three things that you are doing on your Saturday?
