Skye was pretty excited to be included in some of my miles yesterday.
My neighbor (Emilee) just got back from a trip so we were finally able to get in a run together. I did the first 7.5 miles with her and then got the kids to school and Skyester joined me for another 3.5. While I was pushing her I couldn’t stop thinking about how Cynthia Arnold pushed a TRIPLE stroller (185 lbs) for a marathon and finished in 3:11. I can’t even imagine… 3.5 is my max right now ha!
We got home and had breakfast together and before I knew it, Skye was trying to feed her dog oatmeal with her spoon.
Sharing is caring.
When I was going to leave the house to go pick up the kids I told Skye and Andrew that I was leaving. Skye started waving and saying byeeee but was more than happy to stay home. I then said, “I’m going to go get the kids from school.” As soon as I finished saying that I was going to get the kids, Skye ran to grab her shoes and opened the door to go in the garage. She is fine if I leave her but if she knows that the kids are involved, SHE HAS TO BE INCLUDED.
Victoria and I have talked online for almost 9 years. I finally met last night because she was in town for work. It was so fun to finally talk in person. She is another reason I’m very grateful for blogging!
There was a random rain storm last night so the kids made sure to enjoy that afterwards too;). The rain helped to clean them off from all of the items that they spilled all over themselves at chic-fil-a too. Win-win. Victoria may have used the word ‘zoo’ to describe our crew yesterday haha.
I’ve got my favorite things from this week to share with you today!
*I shared these last year and a ton of you bought them and loved them too and now that the temperatures are getting cooler I thought I would share them again—> $28 + leggings that feel like they are from Lululemon + perfect for running or bootcamp or anything = heaven.
You can get them HERE and there are so many amazing colors to choose from. I wear the same size in these as I do at Lululemon 4/6.
*Another Amazon favorite… this ROMPER. They have a ton of cute colors, it’s such a great deal and I used it as a swim coverup in Cayman and loved it.
*Amanda told me about this magic ball and I’ve used it every day since it’s arrived on my hamstrings, glutes, feet and calves. It has been so good to help get the knots out on my lower body and it’s the perfect travel size too.
*Brooke and Knox’s Friday favorite= Paint by Stickers. They spend so long on these pictures and Brooke told me it’s her favorite craft lately (which is saying a lot because she loves all things crafty/arty).
*One last kid thing. One of you recommended this book for us and it quickly became the the kid’s favorite. I love seeing them learn about how incredible our bodies are and those flaps just make them so excited to read it ha.
*My mom sent me this video and it made me laugh so hard… do you feel like the first dog or the second dog about the treadmill?
*My current favorite snack… fresh cut peaches and cinnamon life. It doesn’t get better than this.
I love featuring the amazing things you are doing so please send them in to [email protected]
Sage!!! “I ran my first postpartum half marathon! And set a personal record for fastest half marathon on 2 hours of sleep! I work nights as an RN and worked the night before the half. The race was in the evening so I thought I could get some good sleep during the day, but life happens and I only got 2 hours. I almost didn’t go to the race but I’m so glad I did! I felt surprisingly good. This half is part of my training for the NYC marathon. I am running as part of the team for Sanctuary for Families, an organization that helps victims of domestic and gender violence. This is something I’m passionate about, and I’m so happy to support an organization that provides such crucial services. Here is my fundraising page!
Tell me a random fact about you that I don’t know yet… I WANT TO KNOW!
