I have a new friend to friend post HERE today!
Skye could not look up for the picture above because her eyes have not seen sunshine in so long that it will take time for them to acclimate. IT WAS 50 DEGREES YESTERDAY. I think we made it.
5 treadmill miles @ 7:52 average (Andrew was gone… but I am hoping there will be a few sunshine miles later on this week).
I made it over to the dermatologist and she is starting me on a few creams so I’ll keep you updated on how that all goes.
Skye went down for a nap and I put dinner in the crockpot.
Leftovers on the window seat for lunch. These burrito bowls are so so good. As I was eating I realized that the dinner I made for last night resembled the burrito bowls with chicken, corn and beans being the star ingredients ha. Killing it with variety over here.
We haven’t gone to the park after school for a very long time.
We hit up the slide on repeat.
Chicken cream cheese chili for dinner!
I also picked up some rolls and honey butter from Texas Roadhouse to go along with our dinner because they have been sounding so good for a long time.
4 more shifts and his capstone will be done!
Let’s get talking about some tangents:
*Brooke and Knox have come up with an excellent business model where the outcome is 100% profit for them. They told me that they are going around the house and putting little price tags on items that they don’t think we need anymore. Then they are going to invite people over to buy the items, take the cash and hit up Target to buy the toys they want. Sounds like a real win-win for everyone involved;)
*Last week I was getting ready and putting on my bra and wondering how I grew out of fitting into my bra overnight. I then realized I was trying to put my bra on over my bra that was already on. Turns out, I’m ready for the taper. (I’ll include a random picture that does not involve me wearing two bras at once;)
*The other day after my 3rd long run in a row I was thinking back to my first half-marathon. I crossed the finish line of my 1st 13.1 and said NEVER AGAIN. I remember thinking in those final miles that day you couldn’t pay me to do a marathon. And now I’m excited for my 50 miler. Something is wrong.
I do not have a picture from my first race but I do have a picture from about a month before the race when I was living in Hawaii and definitely not training for a half-marathon.
While we are talking about Hawaii… turns out my hair is a little bit more curly out there compared to Utah.
*We will be moving to Holland, MI next winter… HEATED SIDEWALKS FOR THE RUNNERS?!?!
*This comment is from a few years ago and it is one I’ve kept in my ‘favorite comments folder’ for when I get nervous about a race or some other goal I’ve made for myself.
*Anyone living in Vegas? Last week when Andrew’s sister Facetimed us (she had to laugh that we were in bed at 8:45…) it was snowing in Vegas.
*Andrew will remember this when the going gets tough on race day;)
Just one more reminder that I have a new friend to friend post HERE today!
Share a tangent with me today!
Do you have curly or straight hair? Or in between?
-In college it was pretty curly (especially in Hawaii) but now it is pin straight except for a few random spots.
Does your city have anything special for runners?
-Other than some really nice paved trails and gas stations that are very kind to me using their restrooms… I can’t think of anything.
What three ingredients do you find yourself using most often when making meals at home?
