If you can today, please eat a lemon bar, carrot cake or some See’s candy in honor of my mom and her birthday today! This woman is the best of the best and I am so grateful for her. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!
Turns out Skye is a big fan of vacations.
We hung out with my brother and his family for a little bit before making our way to Surprise, Arizona for the next Angels game. We made sure to stop for food on the way there. I am really on a breakfast kick so we stopped at a Egg N’ Joe for the good stuff. Blueberry pancakes for me and crepes for Andrew. I’m ready to get back to some vegetables again today at home… and probably more pancakes too because that love isn’t going anywhere.
And then we made it to the stadium. We got there a bit early so I fed Skye in the car before we went in and then we watched the players come out. Mike Trout (Andrew’s absolute favorite) smiled and nodded at Andrew so that made his day and…
I told one of the coaches that this was Skye’s first Spring Training so they grabbed a ball to give to her.
I was really excited about Skye’s baseball outfit. I couldn’t resist. Amazon makes buying stuff you really don’t need too easy to buy.
The Angels won yesterday which was really good because I was hoping they would while we were there.
Another highlight of the game for me was this fruit kebob. I want to recreate this with the kids at home.
Oh and we were also in the shade for 98% of the game which made it so much easier with a baby.
Before leaving for the game my sister-in-law told me that she was going to make lasagna for us for dinner. I think she is still trying to repay me for setting her up with my brother on a blind date 9 years ago. After dinner last night, we are officially even.
The Truman Show for our Friday night feature film.
And now let’s just hope that our flight today goes as well as it did on Friday!
I am beyond excited to see this little face today! Also, Andrew got some AirPods too for his bday (mainly because I am so incredibly obsessed with them that I had to have Andrew experience how great they are for running) and he loves them so much too. Last week while I was on a run I said to myself, ‘dang it… I forgot my headphones.’ But I didn’t, they were in my ears already but I just couldn’t even feel them… it was early in the morning so I’m going to blame that and the fact that these headphones are so great on why I thought I forgot them.
I’ve got another workout for you to try out!
I LOVE the tempo run. It’s my favorite workout because I love the comfortably hard effort for a long period of time. For me and the tempo the first half is always more mentally hard and the second half is more physically hard. For the first part I am just trying to wrap my head around the fact that I’m going to be pushing it for x amount of miles and then at the half way point my brain is convinced I can keep going since I am already 50% done but then my body starts getting tired ha. My tempo runs are such a big help for race day and doing a wave tempo can make this workout even more exciting. You can find your marathon race pace and half marathon race pace HERE if you want to try this workout. I’ve also done this workout alternating between marathon and half marathon race pace every half mile. Let me know if you try it!
How many states have you been to? How many different states have you run races in?
-I’ve been to about 28 of the states and I’ve raced in 7 different states! PS when I was 4 or 5 my family took a one month long vacation and we drove all over the country visiting different states. I really want to do that with our kids too.
What was the last thing that you bought that you really didn’t need to buy?
Favorite sports games to spectate?
-I don’t love watching baseball on tv but I love the atmosphere of the games and being there.
What was the best thing you ate this last weekend?
