Well, we stuck to our original craft plan of making these… they may have also resembled cats but let’s just pretend they look exactly like bunnies.
One of the other mom’s at the Easter party brought these super cute cupcakes in case you need an Easter treat to make this weekend.
Brooke’s finished cupcake. She is just like me and understands that the frosting is where the money is at… the rest of it is good and all but the frosting wins.
Okay, let’s go back and start at the beginning of the day. I got out for a six mile run and a few miles into the run…
My brother was out for his run in Key West along the water. I was sure wishing that I was running there but my Utah views were pretty beautiful too. I also don’t know how I would handle Florida humidity… I would probably pass out. All of you that run through humidity deserve all of the bonus points in the world. I thought it was fun we were running at the exact same time though.
Just petting Beretta as he was singing ‘you are my sunshine’ to her.
After my run we did some errands and running around before going to the Easter party. Knox was excited to be matching me with a baseball t-shirt. We then hit up the party. After the party I worked and before we knew it, it was dinnertime.
I didn’t take a picture of dinner last night (it was a boring meal) but I’ll show you Wednesday night’s dinner. One of my absolute favorites… spaghetti with marinara and ground turkey. I could eat pasta every day and never get sick of it. I should try a pasta streak. I usually do a popsicle streak each summer but maybe I’ll add pasta to that too.
A picture to attempt to show you something I love about our marriage. We are both left handed which makes eating next to each other work very well.
Okay, two more pictures from Wednesday because my head is all over the place. Knox brought me a flower and it melted my heart.
And this is Brooke’s current favorite face to make when I bring out the camera.
Okay, back to Thursday… the kid’s had another soccer game! I wish you could all come and watch them play. It’s hilarious.
We are keeping up with our Thursday night tradition of ‘Family Night’ and the kid’s decorated Easter cupcakes and decorated eggs. We also talked about why we celebrate Easter and sang some songs and hung out.
The kids and I love hard-boiled eggs. Andrew despises them. He can’t even stand the smell.
Well, this is sure exciting! Kathrine Switzer is going to be running Boston (she is now 70)!! What an amazing woman.
What do you think about these temperatures. Do you feel like these are similar to your favorite race temperatures? For me personally I think around 45 degrees is my optimum racing temperature for the half-marathon and marathon. Interesting to see what temperatures the elites run best!
It looks like the weather for Boston on Monday is 50-60s and I’ve read that they are expecting a tailwind of 15-25 mph! Excited to see some awesome things happen on Monday!!
Boston has been known to have some crazy weather over the years but so glad that this year looks great!
I’m glad I wasn’t there in 1909, 1976, 2004 or 2012:)
****Something random I am working on running wise right now… thinking about my posture throughout the day and not just during the run. Our posture during the day is going to make an impact on our posture during the run! At my running coach training our instructor had us stand and place our hands about an inch above our heads. She then told us to raise up (without going on our toes) for our head to meet our hand… it’s amazing how whenever I do this I feel my core open up and engage.
****I don’t know how to say this in a proper way ha but another tip she gave us… pretend that you have a $100 bill between your two flute cheeks and throughout your run you don’t want to let that $100 bill drop. It will help you to keep your glutes activated/doing their job and not being lazy during the run!
What is your dream temperature for a race?
Have a food that you absolutely can’t stand that pretty much everyone else seems to like?
Last time you ran by water? Where?
And for my own wondering for future posts… do you want me to do clothing posts… like my favorite things lately or no? Just wondering if I should get working on one!
