The top three most viewed posts last week were:
I have a bunch of random things to share with you today:
*The BYU Gymnastics gym = How the kids will stay sane this winter. My brother-in-law takes us with their kids so a bunch of kids get to run around and jump into the foam pit.
*We made some Santa sugar cookies!
The kids decorated a bunch of cookies too.
I got the recipe from THIS book… I’ve used a bunch of recipes from here and they are awesome for Christmas (this book makes a great gift too)!
*I may or may not visit my upcoming ultra’s site daily to review everything. The whole ultra thing is so different than road races even on the race website… “At least I don’t charge you for the extra mileage.” hahaha!
*Your 12 year old niece doesn’t try to teach you how to do your hair too?
*My right hamstring was bugging me two weeks ago for the first few miles of every run. It was starting to freak me out a bit until I realized it was FROM THE ROADS. In our new area the sides of the roads are slanted like crazy and caused an imbalance when I would run on them. Now when I run around here I stay on the sidewalk (flat) and my hamstring problems have disappeared. I’m paying attention to those sidewalk cracks that like to jump up and make me trip too.
PS It’s official, shorts weather is gone (unless I’m on the treadmill). Until we meet again in March….
*You can also watch his awesome 240 (242.3;) mile ULTRA. It is so good and so inspiring. He started running four years ago and now look at him. Wow.
*I had Brooke watch it with me but she still finds running boring ha. Andrew and I loved it.
*Turns out maybe I was made for the trails with fuel like this for the miles. Thank you to our neighbors for the Halloween candy for free fuel.
*The things we do for our running is kind of disturbing.
*Deep thinking for you… what’s the answer?
*My sister has progressed in her extreme fear of opening these types of cans. She can now be in the room when the pop goes off (she used to run into the other room) but she still makes me open them for her ha.
*This is the letter that Brooke wrote to Santa. She wants a guitar, a violin, a scooter, Doll Bunk Bed, more animals and a baby brother… how do you explain that Santa can’t bring that?!
*I saw this the other day and my answer to this question is 32.
Our Sunday morning was incredibly lazy which was very needed after a crazy week.
Andrew and I spoke at church in front of about 200ish people. That was terrifying but my voice stopped shaking about 4 minutes into it. Public speaking is hard but it was good for me to stretch myself and get out of my comfort zone a bit/lot.
These two are in quite the Christmas spirit lately! PS Brooke is feeling back to herself and her cough is completely gone!
We had this chicken tortilla soup for dinner!
It was really great to have a full week together the 5 of us. Knox leaves this morning and we are sure going to miss him!
Do you run most often on the side of the road, on sidewalks, on bike trails or on trails? Ever tripped on a sidewalk crack while running?
Do you have any random fears (like my sister’s can popping fear)?
What are you having for dinner tonight… give me some ideas!
Getting any awesome deals for Cyber Monday? (I would love for some bday ideas for Skye:)
