We were all happy Saturday morning when Skye decided to do just one feeding that night! She is doing a fist pump for herself:
Skye woke up at about 3 to eat and then again at around 6:20 so I fed her, put her back down and then got ready for my run. I headed out just as the sun was rising and it was about 25 degrees which didn’t feel bad at all for some reason.
I love the long run and I have missed it a lot the last few months. I love starting my Saturday off with the long run (well, I love it after about 3-4 miles ((starting a run is always TOUGH)) and coming home feeling accomplished. I added a little challenge to the run and tried to go fast for the last mile and ended with a 6:49 mile. I hope any drivers that see me running in my tie-dye shoes appreciate the large amounts of color they offer. Also, I listened to Ali’s interview with Gwen Jorgensen (Olympic gold medalist in the triathlon and now she is switching over to the marathon) and it was so great!
PS At first I didn’t want to call my 9 mile run a ‘long run’ because I know there are so many of you out there where your long run is 18 or 20 miles or something BUT we can’t think that way. We are all in different places with our fitness and running and while 9 miles isn’t long for those training for a marathon, it is long for where I’m at now and that means I should be proud. Just a reminder to be proud of exactly where you are at now and the accomplishments you are making. Just because someone else’s definition of a run is different than yours doesn’t change how awesome you should feel about what YOU are doing! Stick to your definitions of things no matter what everyone else is doing.
I came across a million ducks at one point along the run but they all ran away when they saw me get my camera out.
Random story but Brooke accidentally through one of Andrew’s hats on Skye (She didn’t know Skye was on the other side of the bed in her play gym) and it made Skye cry. Brooke was DEVASTATED over what happened even though Skye got over it quickly… she felt so bad for making Skye cry. Her love for her sis is already crazy strong… I get it.
My dad requested Which Wich for his birthday lunch. We also picked up some fries from 5 Guys to eat with the sandwiches (it is right next door) to complete the perfect meal.
Then my mom took Brooke to get a treat. BROOKE IS GETTING SO TALL!
PS Brooke can do so many crazy tongue tricks. I cannot.
Skye was still asleep so we stopped at a park and let Brooke play while we played catch. Next week when I am complaining to you about my right (I only eat and write with my left hand) shoulder… please remind me that it was from playing catch for 17 minutes ha.
Brooke got in a few throws too.
A few hours later and we were off to dinner. We have some amazing friends (that we don’t get to see enough) that took us out to Communal (a must if you come to Utah County)! Brooke had a babysitter come over and we took Skye.
Just a few of the delicious things we had:
And this mousse was heaven.
Skye was pretty involved in the conversation too.
And before I let you go for the day, I had to share this from Kristin (stuftmama). I am MUCH (x a million) happier when I measure myself this way:
Right or left handed? Do you do everything right or left handed?
-Andrew and I both eat/write with our left hand and play sports with our right!
Tell me about your weekend running.
What is your breakfast today?
