My legs were JELLO by the end of my run yesterday. We did our speed on the trails and a lot of FAST on the ups. Hopefully the ups at CIM will feel easier after this workout.
Emilee and I did the first 9.99 miles (I didn’t realize that I was so close to 10 until I saw this screen at the end and 9.99 drove me a little crazy haha) w/ 1200 ft of up and then I hurried home to see Brooke off to school and then did another 4.3 miles after to cool-down.
Today’s post is just a bunch of pictures from my phone that I haven’t shared yet along with their stories:
*I have now lived by my sister for over a year and we both go to the same grocery store by our houses MULTIPLE times a week and we have never run into each other there until the other day. I was excited it finally happened. I took a picture with my niece and my sister photobombed it to celebrate.
*The feeling Andrew experiences when he see’s our kids mountain biking is equivalent to the feelings our kids experience Christmas morning when they see their presents.
These two are a lot more brave than I expected and so far they love it. I’m even getting on my bike and going with them too so Andrew is in heaven. He even has Brooke going off mini JUMPS already.
*The days Andrew doesn’t work are by far Skye’s favorite day. She just loves being his little buddy.
*But I guess she is okay with the days it is just the two of us too;)
*The employee’s at Great Harvest know us by name now… not sure if that is a good thing haha.
*Brooke has created quite the nail salon and she even put her Halloween candy that she got last weekend in a bowl to put next to her like they do at the salon that I go to sometimes.
*The other day Andrew and I picked up some meat and cheese to eat on the bench of the park while the kids played. It was so simple but so delicious and fun.
*This was a very interesting listen…
*When you ask your husband to write on your friend’s gifts because he has way better handwriting than you do….
*2nd time is the charm! Brooke pierced her ears a while ago and when they got a little infection (my bad… I bought some really cheap earrings on Amazon) she said she was retiring earrings. But then she asked to get them pierced again (and now I will buy better earrings and she is old enough to take really good care of them) so we went for it. We also learned the first time to do them BOTH ears at the same time so we did that this time and it went way better.
*Found this little picture of my arm before the race. Writing these reminders on my wrist helps me SO much during a race. Try it!
*Andrew makes the most amazing salads to take to work!
*Can anyone help me out with something? I really want to get new seat pads made for our window seats because these have seen their day (the padding is very thin now and they have stains;) but I have NO idea what fabric to get for them. If anyone reading can help me out (or do I just have new ones made with a similar patterned fabric?) with some ideas… I would love that. My brain does not do well with this kind of stuff haha.
