I started a new name for the trails when we do them the day after a speed workout—> Torture Trails;). My legs were sore and then the ups and downs just took them to the next level but that’s what I need for a fast marathon!
There is nothing better than seeing this rock during the run because it means you are done with the really hard work and you get to cruise back down to your car for 2 miles.
I love this rock very much.
10 miles @ 9:41 average with 1322 ft of up!
Brooke told me she needed her blanket to be in between the two of us when she hugged me to avoid my sweat.
When you have delicious cookies on your counter from your friend the night before, they become the absolute best post-run fuel.
Carbs and protein (the eggs in the cookies):
An update on her black eye, it actually looked a lot better yesterday! Skye also wanted to give you an update on her tongue.
I got to spend some time with a friend of mine that is moving away. I’m not okay with her leaving! We met through this blog 7 years ago. I’ve always really loved every minute we get together.
Arizona is very lucky to get them!
It’s been a few weeks since I last posted some of my favorite things so let’s get going with that again (affiliate links included)!
*Another high-neck running tank that I love so so much. It’s light and cool for these summer months and I love the high-neck and looseness on my stomach!
*This wins as our absolute favorite thing this month. We’ve always wanted to do movie nights in our backyard with our friends and family and found the perfect combo to do it. We didn’t want to spend a lot on the items but we wanted the picture to be very clear and we found the winners for a total of $116 for both the projector and the screen. Oh and we also bought a 4k firestick so that we can stream Netflix/hulu/amazon prime etc straight to the projector.
Andrew bought PVC pipe to build a frame around the screen and placed it on our gutters. The picture from the projector is AWESOME especially when it is pitch black outside (below it is still kind of light out but still works great). We have our s’mores station setup on the terrace behind. The combination makes for the perfect summer night.
*Please purchase this brand of popsicle asap if you can (Costco has them for a great deal too). The mango flavor is my favorite but really they are all the absolute best and so creamy. I’m currently eating on average 2 a day.
*An incredibly vulnerable post from Amelia Boone HERE about her struggle with an eating disorder and what she is doing about it now. “So this is me: flawed, disordered, and dealing with a mental illness for the past 20 years. I’m not ashamed anymore. I’m not afraid anymore. And, most importantly, I’m not starving anymore. Instead, I’m full of hope”
What are your plans this weekend?
