It just feels really good to be running again. It’s crazy how a little time away can sure make you love running even more. Sundays are my rest day but I’m already looking forward to my running this next week.
Things sure change fast here—> Friday= 50 degrees. Saturday= we woke up to a whole lot of snow. My mom asked me how my treadmill run went yesterday morning because she just assumed no one would be crazy enough to run outside but…
it turns out I was not alone. Utah has plenty of crazy runners out getting in their miles! I actually really enjoy running on fresh snow. I love the crunchy sound that each step makes, I love the extra challenge that it brings and I’m guessing it makes your calves a lot stronger because mine were TIRED by the end of my run.
4 miles @ 9:55 average pace and some pretty red cheeks by the end. I saw a few dogs out running through the snow and they looked like it was the best day of their lives. Beretta went with Andrew and he said the same thing about her.
I came home and Andrew got ready to go out on his run. WHO RUNS IN SHORTS IN THIS TYPE OF WEATHER!? Andrew does.
While he was gone, we just relaxed.
Once they got home, Brooke did her part to make sure that Beretta warmed up by putting a sheet on her and cuddling her.
My brother from Kentucky was in town for a few hours yesterday! He made sure to hit up his two favorites while he was here… Swig (where they have those amazing sugar cookies) and Cafe Rio! PS He is now a pilot for Southwest so if he is flying your airplane, make sure to say hi to him.
He has more energy than any human I have ever met and his life is dedicated to making people laugh… I WISH THEY LIVED HERE. Andrew, the kids and I are going to their house this summer to hang out which will be really fun.
And this is what Brooke’s face looks like after she nailed my brother with a snowball.
My brother also brought us 5 jars of his freezer jam all of the way here from Kentucky. He makes the best food.
Because we were all frozen and needed something to warm up.
In the afternoon, Andrew took Brooke out to go sledding and to build a snowman. I can hear her little giggle just when I look at the pictures. They had a blast.
Skye and I stayed at home and had some deep discussions.
For dinner we had our favorite breakfast foods (my brother’s jam on our pancakes= so good) along with a caesar salad because it sounded good. Randomness is our favorite.
Last night we did everything possible to keep Skye awake for a few hours before she went to bed. Friday night created some lovely bags under my eyes so we are really trying now to keep her up a little bit more during the day… here’s to hoping it works and if not, I’m more than happy to snuggle her during the night too.
I hope your Sunday is a great one!
Did anyone else get snow this last week? A lot or a little?
