8 miles @ 9:04 average with Emilee and it looks like we are going to be raking all weekend… you can’t even see the grass anymore ha.
After two speed days in a row my legs felt pretty fatigued and I need as much recovery as possible today in preparation for a big day on Saturday!
Cupcake hair and a mohawk for crazy hair day….
I don’t know if I could live without hot chocolate.
The other day I was asked to speak at our kid’s elementary school for red ribbon week! They wanted me to talk about how awesome it is to live a drug-free life and how much that helps me with running.
I COULD NOT BELIEVE HOW NERVOUS I WAS. I’ve spoken in front of people at church and at the high school I used to teach at (and I seem to not be afraid to talk about TMI subjects on the internet every day) without feeling nervous but for some reason I was just so nervous about elementary aged students ha. Luckily, it all went really well and Brooke and Knox said afterwards that they weren’t embarrassed by me so that is a win! PS it did make me miss teaching health and I’d love to get back to that again someday.
My nephew and Skye were so sad they couldn’t stay for the rest of the day at the school.
Dinner was my current favorite meal—> Alfredo (2 T olive oil, 1 T flour, 2 small cartons of heavy cream, 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese) + noodles + grilled chicken + roasted broccoli & cauliflower
I have a few Friday Favorites to share today!
*Disney+. Wow. It’s only $6.99 a month and you get SO many movies from Disney, Pixar, Star Wars etc. We already have a Hulu account and so adding this only cost us an extra few dollars month and now we are never going to run out of movies for family movie night.
*I get a lot of questions on this headband so I thought I would just add it here! You can find it here and it really does keep your ears so warm! I have it in a few colors too.
*Oh and just in case you need a very very very warm ear band… this one is amazing!
*Oprah posted her Amazon Favorites HERE and she has so many amazing gift ideas… I want everything.
*Heather gave me an amazing recommendation for a top that has a built in balaclava. It is going to save me this winter on those cold mornings as a base layer that will keep my face warm too! It is very soft and fits true to size! PS you can get 20% off Athleta when you enter your email at the bottom of this page!
*I love Lauren and Jesse’s podcast and I LOVED what they had to say in regards to everything coming out from Mary Cain and others at this point.
*The Peppermint Chocolate Chip shake from Chic-fil-a is back and as heavenly as can be.
*Each December our church has an awesome program for service called Light The World. This December you can enter in your phone number to get a daily text with an idea of how to serve somebody else. I just think it’s the coolest.
What are your Friday plans?
What is the last podcast that you listened to (and let me know if you would recommend it)?
Public speaking—> does it make you nervous or not so much?
Teachers reading—> how did you decide on teaching the age group that you decided to teach?
