Today is our First Date THREE YEAR ANNIVERSARY. We were set up on a blind date three years ago today! I can honestly say that I felt at home and so peaceful about Andrew within the first hour of meeting him. I met him and knew pretty quickly that we had a future together.
In 3 years since our first date we… Got married, blended a family, had a baby, remodeled an entire home, moved to our second home together, Andrew started nursing school and then graduated nursing school, ran some big races and all sorts of randomness in between. We are tired ha and I’m not sure we will accomplish as much in the next three years;)
Our first date was to Outback but I think we are going to go somewhere different tonight. PS I’ve told you this before but it was a very good sign to me on our first date that he said we should get our own desserts after dinner.
From day 1 he knew I didn’t want to share my dessert.
25 miles so far this week and all of them have been with people. Coming from doing 70ish miles pretty much all on my own during ultra training to running all of my runs this week (including today) with other people has been so much fun.
My neighbor and I went out for 6 miles at a 7:49 average with a few hills and so many stories.
PS I tried out the Ravenna 10 yesterday and LOVED THEM. I haven’t worn the Ravenna’s for a long time so I can’t compare them to the previous one besides they do feel a bit lighter and faster but I’ll write up a review after I get in some more mileage on them.
We hit up Sundance a little bit later on. If you ever come visit Utah, you must go to Sundance. It is gorgeous.
My mom was with us and she forced us into the bakery for treats. Oreo crust, coconut topping and so much goodness in between.. YES PLEASE.
She bought a rice Krispy treat for Skye and she just walked around with the biggest grin on her face.
It was warm at cross-country yesterday but these two were determined to get all of the punches on their cards so they could get their beads. They even stayed after it ended so they could finish their cards!
Running rewards= the best.
I didn’t end up getting my panini yesterday (too lazy to go to the store) but this orange chicken from Costco, rice and broccoli made a pretty delicious dinner too.
The rest of the evening was spent outside. This is the best time of year.
Good luck to everyone racing this weekend! There are a lot of races going on (including Mt Charleston… I did that one last year) and I want to hear how everyone does.
I have just a few Friday Favorites to share today (affiliate links on the last 2)!
*This Run Wild sweatshirt… basically if clothing says run on it then I will want to buy it.
*Caroline sent me this article with the best signs on the Boston course and I loved this one!
*I was told that these licorice twists were the best candy on the planet (slight exaggeration)… and I totally agree. These things are too good and I might have to use them for my next long run as fuel too. Also, this Tzatziki Dip is so good and even Skye loves it as a dip. I use it on chips/veggies/wraps. It’s a new staple for me.
*I shared this on my instagram yesterday and had to post it here too. Our body hears every little thing we tell it and it acts accordingly.
*At the Lululemon booth at the Boston expo I also got this sports bra with the screen print ‘Been There. Ran That’ on it. This was my first time trying out this sports bra and I’ve been doing wash daily just so I can wear it the next day on my run (I sweat too much to not wash them after each use). It is so comfortable and $39 right now so not too crazy expensive.
*My hairdresser used this on my hair before she put any heat on my hair and goodness gracious it made my hair feel so soft that I bought a bottle to take home with me to use. It smells pretty heavenly too.
Any other candy/treats that I need to try from Trader Joe’s? That licorice made me wonder what else I’m missing out on in life.
Anyone else have any anniversaries coming up?
What was your last running reward?!
Who has a race this weekend? I want to hear about it!
