*HAPPY TUESDAY!! Get ready for some Tangents that have zero correlation and are kind of all over the place!
*Brooke now wears my headbands sometimes… “Find Your Happy Pace.” —> good advice.
*There is a place in Utah County that has Graham Cracker sauce as an ice cream topping. It is worth the drive (Rockwell Ice Cream) if you are a state that borders Utah. I put it on top of Snickerdoodle flavored ice cream and added sprinkles (Brooke’s love for them has rubbed off on me). Try it now.
*Somehow they have found a way to combine dollhouse and army tank into one imaginary story… it is quite entertaining and a win-win for the both of them.
*A picture that Andrew took of my dad and I a few weeks ago at the temple. I think it is my favorite picture of us together ever.
*I hope Beretta enjoys wearing crowns…
*Nothing like catching them in their snuggly mood which may only last 2.5 minutes each day… but still.
*This below scene truly depicts perfectly each trip to Target that I take with Knox and Brooke.
*I’m a few days late talking about this but WOW. Mary Keitany broke the world record for the women’s-only marathon time at the London Marathon on Sunday! She finished in 2:17:01! Paula Radcliffe still holds the fastest marathon time by a woman (2:15:25) but because she ran with two male pacemakers it is under a different category for the world records!
*Remember those Black Bean Enchiladas that we had the other night at Candice’s house? She sent the recipe for the Enchiladas and the salad (I love her salad recipe description:)
She sent the recipe for the Enchiladas and the salad (I love her salad recipe description:) Try these… they are amazing!
*Brooke is figuring out IG stories. She didn’t know how to send them out so I helped her with that but she was pretty proud of the picture that she made on my story.
*My mom sent this to me this morning: She found it on Facebook) I was laughing pretty hard!
*The other day I was going over my analytics and this post about 5 ways to push yourself while running (especially when you are tired) was one of my top posts ever. Hopefully it has tips that can help you out when the going gets tough. This picture was from my second marathon ever (I went from a 3:20—> 3:08). Please note the ziplock bag hanging out of my shorts that had my shot bloks in them (turns out fuel belts are a better solution to carrying fuel throughout a race). I look like a baby there (probably because it was almost 7 years ago). My mom took this picture at mile 21 and I tried my hardest to smile at her. The hardest thing about this race was running RIGHT IN FRONT of my house at mile 24… the temptation to just walk in my front door and collapse on my couch was real.
*The worst= When Beretta comes out of the freezing cold river and shakes off right by you…
Have any tangents to share today!?!
If you could automatically be entered into any marathon in the world right this second… which one would it be?
How have you carried your fuel for races over the years?
Best part of your day so far?
