Let’s just go ahead and start off by talking about the most exciting part of our run yesterday= We saw Jared Ward TWICE (he just did Boston this year in 2:09). Seeing my running idols makes me feel so starstruck and I blurted out, ‘you are my hero’ when he ran by without even thinking about what I was saying… I felt awkward. Now I just need to go find Shalane because they are still here for altitude training.
Flashback to seeing Jared Ward at the end of the St. George Marathon:
Emilee was rocking some Brooks too for our run which made me very happy. I wore my hyperions because they are what I will wear for the marathon in a few months so I want to get my body used to doing long runs in them.
We both (we also got to run with our friend Jenn for a portion too) felt pretty tired from all of the 4th of July partying/families in town but I’m happy that this pace felt pretty comfortable while talking the entire time.
Next item on our agenda—> a birthday party at a trampoline park. Skye loved it as much as Brooke did.
Brooke then went out with her cousins and we took Skyester on some errands.
And then she came home and relaxed while we got dinner going.
We had a bbq with everyone over. My brother bought the J Dawgs special sauce for our burgers/hot dogs. If you have a J Dawgs near you, please do this.
We finished off the night with a s’more party outside and a movie!
