In case you missed out on last week’s posts… the top 3 most viewed were:
Two people are missing from our Sunday picture. Brooke was with her dad and Andrew woke up with a sore throat… since Brookie and a lot of my family have had it the last few weeks he went straight in to get it checked out.
Yep, strep. He was not feeling well all day but I’m glad he could start on the medicine right away.
Skye let me sleep in until 7:30 a.m. It felt heavenly. I love a good rest day/sleep in after a week of training.
Knox woke up a few minutes later and yes, he slept in his full army costume the entire night. I started sweating just thinking about doing this.
Usually Andrew has Skye when I am teaching my lesson at church but instead she joined me. During her nap time. Others tried to help her out but she just wanted mama (I’m assuming at this point that when she says Da-da she is talking about me or Andrew;). I can multitask a few things (like coming up with blog posts while running while listening to a podcast while working on my form) but it turns out I’m not as good at multitasking mamaing and teaching. Hopefully she just kept everyone entertained the whole time by her cuteness.
Who knows if Airborne can save you from strep throat (let’s be honest, it is more for colds and things like that) but Andrew and I shared a drink Saturday night so if I don’t come down with strep after that then I will for sure be buying stock in this stuff.
Turns out that strep and two races don’t go well together so I’m really hoping I do not get it.
For dinner my sis had us all over (Andrew told us to go too because he just wanted to sleep) and she made her famous pizza. If you are wondering why we eat her pizza so much it is because it is that amazing.
She also made a new version of pizza with the same dough, cheese, her garden tomatoes and basil.
Grocery store tomatoes don’t even taste remotely similar to me compared to garden tomatoes. Garden tomatoes are SO much better.
My sister and I went on a walk with my mom (she took the picture:)!
Pretty gorgeous night. PS see the peak on the top left of this picture? Andrew and I are going to hike that for our next date… I’m so excited. And nervous.
PS while we were walking I felt a really sharp pinch in my shoe and THIS GUY WAS IN THERE. Last Sunday Brooke had a bee in her shoe, Knox got stung by a wasp a few days ago and this guy got me yesterday. Our luck.
My family requested my favorite ice cream dessert that I used to make all of the time. It is probably the most advanced recipe I will ever create in my life;)
Knox has been planning the below event for a few days now. We bought a bunch of water balloons, filled them up and sneak attacked my nephews.
We were all soaked by the end. I was so proud that one of my water balloons landed directly on my older nephew’s hair and popped.
Skye and my sis watched from the other side of the fence.
My 5k is tomorrow (Tuesday) 8 am Mountain Standard Time;)… if you wouldn’t mind just cross your fingers that I don’t fly and die or trip or lose my breakfast, k thanks.
PS Lauren Fleshman’s 10 Reasons the 5K is Freaking Awesome is one of my favorite reads.
****Stacey shared amazing race advice for me that I think is really going to help me during my marathon. I have such a hard time getting in enough fluids while I am racing (10% enters my mouth and the rest ends up on my face and shirt) so she shared what she does:
“I carry a straw or two with me during races and doing so has changed my life. Seriously! I see a water stop approaching, I grab my straw from my Spi-belt and I am able to drink and run simultaneously without spilling, choking, or coughing. It’s seriously amazing.”
I learn so much from you guys, thank you.
Any tips for my 5k!?! It has been YEARS since my last one and I would love any tips or mantras or anything please:)
Would you say that you are good at multitasking? Examples please!
What is your favorite race distance? And in 5 words or less tell me WHY!
Anyone have a garden? What do you have in your garden? If you don’t have a garden and you could choose to have three garden fresh items in your backyard at all times… what would you choose?
-Tomatoes, raspberries and zucchini.
