3. Picking up my race packet for my first 10 miler tomorrow!

I’ve been having issues with my IT Band, so I’m hoping to finish the 10 miler. I’m kind of worried I will have a big fat DNF though since it’s pretty early in the treatment. My doctor said I could run, but to run smart and if the pain changes my gait to stop running. Wish me luck!

Reply

Mercedes, I am SO sorry about your IT Band problems. That pain is like nothing else… please keep me updated with how you are doing. Wishing you all of the luck. Have you tried scraping? That is the main thing that has helped my ITBS in the past. I hope tomorrow goes really well and your body cooperates!

Reply

I haven’t tried scarping, but I will ask my PT when I go to my appointment! I’m doing a lot of foam rolling and stretching. I will do some monster walks and skaters tonight in hopes that helps for the run tomorrow. :)

Reply

Lots of hip exercises (clamshells, side leg raises, monster walks etc) + glute/ITB stretching daily to help with the stubborn ITB. Good luck 🙌🏼

Reply

Thank you!!

1. Hanging out with my in-laws
2. Watching a movie with my husband
3. Prepping for the classes I’m teaching tomorrow at church.

How have Skye’s naps been?? My baby is 3.5 months old and his naps have been TERRIBLE lately. By the end of the day he is so overtired 😭😭

Reply

I am SO sorry that your little one is struggling with naps… I get it. Some days she takes an amazing one (key word one;) and then other days she takes a bunch of really short ones. I’ve given up trying to plan them ha and just let her body choose nap time and for how long ha. Keep me updated Amanda and know that I’m right there with you most days! Sounds like a great day and good luck with teaching tomorrow:)

1. Trying to get some people to do a little hilly hiking today with me and my dog Bella at the Blue Hills Reservation just outside Boston.

I want to come do the hike with you and Bella:) Enjoy the game!

Okay, this makes me so happy! Pure Flows are the best! Sounds like the perfect day, enjoy Elizabeth!

3 miles today. Slowly getting the miles back.

Brownies look completely opposite at our house. We will all take you middle pieces.

Reply

AHHH GO JENNY!! This makes me so happy! Hahah yep, brownies are very different at our house too… Andrew lives for the middle pieces. I hope you have an awesome day Jenny!

Reply

I would take that center brownie piece!! There is a simple solution – I have a brownie pan that has 12 individual squares (https://mcmomentsandmemories.blogspot.com/2014/11/pecan-pie-brownies-revisited.html) Perfect edges every time.

I think every time I visit your blog but rarely write it – Skye is such a cutie! Happy Saturday, Janae!

1. Helping out with the local track team practice in the morning

2. did you find sneakers? we usually go to a running store where they watch you run on a treadmill to tell you.
3. sorry about the heel! hope it feels better…

Reply

Where are your sunglasses from? They’re really cute

Reply

How often do You visit tour parents?

Also, how many times do you do yoga a week to stretch out your body?

Hot chocolate after a run always sounds good unless youre super warm after the run xD. Then all I want is ice. Apparently ice chocolate is a thing. Not sure how that works because it sounds just like cold chocolate milk to me.

The best parts to any baked treat are the EDGES. !!!

Reply

1. Bodypump and 3.5 miles on the treadmill (yeah!!!!)
2. Spending time with my kiddos
3. Going to see “Finding Neverland” with my husband <3
The perfect Saturday.

Give me that center brownie everyday!!!!
I’ve never done a race that you have to take a bus ride to start. So the start line is not the same as finish?

Reply

Yep! The finish line is where you park or get dropped off and then you take the bus to the start! I hope you are having a great day!

Reply

Ran a 5k this morning
Went furniture shopping
Ran errands without the kids :)

The center is my FAVORITE 😀
