8 miles @ an 8:22 pace with no soreness from my track workout the previous day which I was not expecting.
Brooke leaves today to be with her dad so we tried to fit in a solid family day while we had everyone together (ps my Birkenstocks have entered my life again to keep my running feet happy ((arch support)).
Skye was beyond impressed with the bird show.
We visited a new park (for Utah people—> Cory Wride Memorial Park) and it was incredible.
We packed some sandwiches and ate lunch there.
Skye even joined in on the splash pad fun.
The ice cream man made an appearance too.
Our kitchen needed some food and we needed some samples so we made a trip to Costco.
We finished off with our ‘date night’ for the week ha… Skye was asleep, the kids were playing downstairs and we ate a really fancy dinner (in my pajamas because my dress was soaking in the spray and wash at the moment because spilling something all over myself is a daily occurrence).
Do not get too jealous of the salsa bar that we enjoyed with our meal.
I’ve got some favorite things for you this week (with a few affiliate links included):
*I am SO excited for my half marathon next Saturday (7/28)! This will be my 4th year in a row doing this race and my goal is to have a 50 year streak with the Timp Half. It’s an amazing course and so incredibly organized. If you want to run it then sign up today (prices go up tomorrow). You can use the code HRG20 to get 20% off!
Flashback to my first year running it!
*I bought a new planner! I LOVED my Erin Condren planner this last year so when I needed a new one again, I went for the same one (except for the 18 month version instead of the 12 month version). I also didn’t get it personalized like I did my first one so it was cheaper this way. I cannot keep track of things with my phone planner so this one is a lifesaver. I love it too much.
*I mentioned the Hair, Skin and Nails Gummies a while ago but I thought I would update you—> they are still a favorite and I have definitely noticed that my hair has been growing faster because of them!
*I do not know how I have gone so many years without this sports bra in my life. I started wearing the Brooks UpHold Crossback and I cannot believe how great it is. NOTHING MOVES. I don’t chafe. The coverage is perfect. It is something else. How I lived without it, I do not know.
*The other day I was watching Kristen Bell’s IG stories (I love following her) and she mentioned her Clarisonic. I totally forgot that I had one so I found mine and I fell in love with it all over again. I am not claiming to have great skin (I do not:) but when I started using mine again, I fell in love with how great my skin felt afterwards.
*Ruth B. I could listen to her all day and according to Andrew, I do.
*I listneed to this short podcast on mindfulness during my run yesterday and I loved it… such a fun thing to practice while running!
*Costco now carries the best popsicles on the planet.
*Allie Kieffer announced she will be running NYC again this year! Maybe we should all fly out to go spectate?!
*Another Costco love, the individual packs of guac. Dip some peppers in it and it’s the perfect snack.
Who is watching the Tour de France this year?
-I’ve been watching the highlights and it makes me want to get back into spin class again:)
Do you use a paper planner? Which one do you use?
What sports bra have you been loving lately?
Have any Friday night plans?
