Try this on your next run + a survey + does this happen to you?

I’ve been doing something new for the last week or so during my run and I’m loving it.  I am the biggest music/podcast/anything listener when I run.  I love it.  I race with music, I get a little bit too personally attached to podcasts that I listen to while I run and when I am running with friends… I’m not sure if I even take breaths for air because I love to talk so much during the run.

A lot of you are already silent runners and you are amazing… lately, I’ve been doing 10-20 minutes of my run in silence.  I don’t start out without my music/headphones (goodness, I need the motivation of something to get me started) but somewhere along the way I just turn off any noise for a little while and it feels SO nice.  I focus on the little things around me that I see… the frost on the grass, the clouds, the outlines of the mountains, the parents trying to get their kiddos off to school on time, the sound I make with each step, seeing my breath in front of me (yep, it’s that cold here in the mornings), I say a little prayer and think about the fam.  Some days I feel like I hear noise/things all day long and I’m really loving taking time during my run to not have any noise (even though I love my music).  Sometimes even small switches like this that we make with our running helps to motivate/excite us and get us out the door.  It can also be a time that you focus on your form, your breathing or your goals.  Try it out on your next run if you are normally a music/podcast/books on tape 100% of the time runner and let me know how it goes!  I want to continue to do this even when I am doing speed work again and learn to focus on things other than what I’m listening to.

Anyone else try to take their jacket off after their run and forget that their watch is on over the sleeve and then it gets stuck on the watch and takes 8 minutes to get the dang jacket off because it gets tangled with the watch!?  Okay, just me.

Just wanting to wear my running gloves to school (how long will she be okay with me taking her to school in my running clothes?).

My Monday run:  7.3 miles + 39 degrees = a 7:48 mile for my last mile of my run.  It has been a LONG time since I have gone that fast but these temperatures do something good for me.  I did get a lot of stares running around in shorts though… as long as my hands are warm, I’m happy.  The rest isn’t as important.  My Tuesday run: 7 miles!

IMG 6854

The other day when I started my run on the treadmill I accidentally pumped off the emergency stop thing with my belly about 2 miles in and took that as my cue to go outside.  I need to put tape on my treadmill again to help me stay back a bit (in this post I explain why putting tape on your treadmill can be helpful).

Those snow capped mountains are pretty gorgeous.  I think they were only snowless for 2.5 months this year ha.

I was thinking about this the other day… Brooke is going to be 5.3 years older than her little sister.  My sister is 7 years older than me and she’s been my best friend (I don’t think I was her best friend until I was a bit older;) since day one.

IMG 6866

Brooke and her little sister may have a bit of a gap in between them but I think that is not going to hold them back from being super close their whole lives.   My sister and me:

A few things we’ve been up to lately!

*Some library book reading.

IMG 6888

*My friend Jess invited us to a jump house and food truck party the other night.  ANDREW EVEN WORE A COAT;)

IMG 6905

* I am pretty sure she went down this slide 400 times.

IMG 6916

*Andrew brought these over to our table… Brooke’s idea of complete heaven.

IMG 6924

*They also had mini pumpkin spice donuts there.

IMG 6926

*The donuts gave them a little bit too much energy afterwards;)

IMG 6900

*You can’t see these very well but my entire body was covered in goosebumps.  I was listening to Pandora while getting ready (Andrew is convinced I’m the only person that listens to Pandora?!) and a This Is Us commercial came on.  My eyes teared up and I had goosebumps everywhere.  I am saving the episode for my treadmill run this morning (along with a few quiet minutes where I’ll probably still be crying over the episode) and I CANNOT WAIT.

IMG 6972

*We went to BYU again to get my current wrap obsession.  I ate one of these every single day when I was in college and for some reason I have been wanting them so bad again (that is mango inside)!

IMG 6982

*Swim lessons were a success… Brooke was doing the freestyle stroke!

IMG 6993

*A walk last night because moving around helps the nighttime nausea when it comes!  Both kids are officially training-wheels free!

IMG 6999

*Megan D sent this to me and I officially need to try it.  Today.  I haven’t had a pancake in like 4 whole days:)

I loved reading people’s responses. I think the worst pain I’ve ever had was a corneal abrasion in college. I also think some of the migraines I’ve had rival that. My spinal tap was pretty bad but I had the drugs flowing through me so it wasn’t bad I guess.

I swear you are in my head some days with your running posts! I just did this whole- stop and pay attention to your surroundings thing on my run a few days ago and it was so nice. I usually do my easy/ shorter runs without anything to listen to but I kind of just zone out or think about wanting to be home for dinner lol. But I actively tried to stay present and pay attention to the sights/ feelings/ sounds/ whatever I came across, and it was awesome. I have a recovery run tonight so thanks for the reminder to try this again!

And Happy Birthday Knox!! Loved reading about Brooke’s bday celebrations a few weeks ago so I can’t wait to see what you have in store for Knox! I’m sure it’ll be a great day!

This comment is already long, so I’m going to skip the full survey but I’ll say my favorite place I’ve traveled to is Florence Italy, a big no to pineapples on my pizza (I think it’s the warm pineapple thing that I can’t get on board with), I would be a cat, and I expect to cry very soon when I get around to watching This is Us :-)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KNOX!!! Hope you are having the best day ever!! Tell your Dad to find the old Jackson 5ive cartoons for you to watch. It was one of my favorite things to watch on Saturday mornings.

I like silent runs sometimes. When I run with my club, we start out as a group and chat for a while. Some people talk the during the whole run. After a few miles, me and my quiet friends run as a group. No words needed unless we ask how someone is doing, if they want to run a little longer, etc. It’s so funny to me how this happens every time..

My sister and I are also 5.3 years apart! I’m the older one, and I have adored her since her first day. She was the most important person in my world (until my partner came along of course) and I am so happy to have her in my life. I’m sure it will be like this for Brooke too :)
Also, happy birthday to Knox!

My dad is a complete silent runner. He’s been like that his throughout entire running journey which is +20 years now. He’s done all of his marathons without any music or podcasts whatsoever. On the other hand, I am extremely attached to music for running. I don’t know how he does it.

Happy Birthday Knox. Hope you have a great birthday… Ok MJ. So my wife and I just went to las vegas this past weekend to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We saw MJ Live at the Stratosphere. I know you’re only 5, but they do allow KIDS! If you guys are there, check their show out! Groupon as a great deal for $25/ticket. Best show ever! It’s a look a like who sings exactly like MJ. My Top 5 Favorite MJ songs… Human Nature, Heal the world, ABC, I want you back, and Just another part of me…heeeheee! Have a good one kid!

I hope Knox had a great birthday! My kids are all 4-5 years apart, so there is 9.5 between the oldest and youngest. They’re all close. My middle one told the youngest that he was born to be her built in best friend (and she was a teen when she told him this so that made it even better) and to me that was one of the biggest parenting wins I will ever have :)

Happy Birthday Knox! Being 5 is the BEST! It is so cool that you love MJ! The best way to learn how to moonwalk is in socks on the wood floors- try it? Does Knox have this book? I love this series- whenever my kids were interested in someone famous they have it in this series… lots of fun facts ( kid friendly)
