Today I have a race recap from BROOKE to share with you! I uploaded the pictures to the post and then Brooke told me what to say for each picture to explain her amazing Saturday 1k Race Experience (a new distance PR for her I might add).
“I went running. I got new running clothes.
I was getting ready for the race and there were SO many people. I went on dada’s shoulders.
We were taking a picture with my friends. They runned too.
It got really hot and I was thirsty. I runned with mom.
I was fast and I was holding mama’s hand. I have a watch.
I was with Dada. My friends were there.
We got medals and drinks.
and TREATS!!!!!! They tasted like strawberries and sugar.
I love Knox and we have a dog.”
So there you have it folks… there is Brooke’s race recap to go along with the pictures we took of her race. She had a good afternoon and isn’t it fun to share the things you love with the people you love!!!
Not going to lie… Brooke’s and my race recaps are pretty darn similar:) You can find mine from Saturday HERE!
PS her race was free and they each got bibs and medals at the end!
And now for a little Sunday recap!
We started off the morning with a breakfast of champions, Frosted Mini Wheats and peaches. I truly think that Brooke’s strong love (she is the one that always requests it) for this cereal stems from when I was pregnant with her and ate it twice a day;) I tell her that and she giggles.
We almost got a selfie complete with all six eyes before going to church.
We go to church for three hours and for the last portion I taught the teen girls which I LOVE doing.
When you place food differently on a plate it makes it look way more fancy;)
Last night our family came over for a barbecue. The key to a good salad in my opinion is to always have more toppings than pieces of lettuce.
We are really into the Salted Caramel Rice Krispie Treats these days and I brought them back again last night… I accidentally used a 16 ounce bag of marshmallows instead of 10 and it made them even better.
My sister’s boys had a light saber competition. PS her little one is only three lbs behind the older one now… he is catching up!
These two ended Brooke’s night with a piano lesson.
Andrew and I finished the night by watching Non-Stop and I liked it a lot!
Time to get running again! The beauty of half-marathons compared to marathons for me—> I start back running again right after the half-marathon (whether I’m racing or not)… with the marathon (no matter what pace I go) I have to take some serious time off! Anyone reading able to bounce back after a marathon quickly?
What was the best part about your weekend!?!
What is your current favorite amount of miles to run daily?
-I love the 7-8 range… it’s the perfect amount of time for me to be out there doing what I love doing without being gone for too long.
I would love to hear about any other good Rice Krispie special recipes or add-ins to Rice krispie treats… please share if you have any!
How many days do you usually take off after different race distances?
