I am dropping my mileage down to 45ish miles this week (and then 60ish next week) which meant yesterday I did an easy 3 and today I’ll take the day off!
Random running thought= I love it when I am about to cross a road and a car is sitting there waiting to turn and then they wave at me to acknowledge that they see me. It’s just such a nice and friendly way for them to let me know that they see me 100%. Someone did that yesterday and it made me happy.
I feel like Skye was feeling a little squished in this picture.
Turns out I have more energy to make food when I’m not running 287 miles a day. Steak tacos for the win.
We saw Santa last night….
Skye hated him.
It was a great night together before Knox leaves for the Thanksgiving break!
A few Friday Favorites (with affiliate links) to share this week:
*Madewell is starting their sale early with 25% off everything so here are my top 5 things from them if you want to take advantage of the sale—> my favorite jeans ever, this sweater, this sweater, this tee and this tee … and I bought this cardigan yesterday:)
*My favorite $16 sweatshirt has a Christmas themed option too and I love it! Edit: it was still there last night and as of right now it’s gone… it must have sold out but I’ll keep you updated for when it is restocked!
*Brooks by far has the best gear for running in the dark (in my opinion). They sent their new Nightlife Jacket and it makes it SO much easier for me to be seen in the dark. It’s the perfect top layer for these winter mornings because it is also weather-resistant! What it looks like when I take a picture with the flash on:
*Also, have you ever seen a cuter pair of running shoes? The holiday themed Revel 3.
*This episode with Mary Cain and Kara Goucher made me cry. I cannot believe everything that she went through with that team but she also brought me a lot of hope (and ideas) on this changing. She is going to have some incredible success with her new coach and I cannot wait to see what she does.
*Okay, this is kind of silly but these magnetic measuring spoons have brought my baking/cooking more joy ha. I always get so annoyed when I can’t find the measuring spoon that I am looking for in the drawer when cooking so I found these magnetic ones and no longer lose them in the drawer. OH and another thing that has been making my baking happier = These Silicone Baking Sheets. They make it so I don’t have to clean my pans or use sprays/parchment paper etc for cookies!
*The best flavor of NanoHydr8 ever—> Lemon Lime for the win (it’s the only one I’m going to drink now because I love it so much). Code HRG20 will get you 20% off too. Tomorrow will be my last caffeine before the race. I like to get my body off of caffeine for a few weeks before a race so that when I have it on race day, it really works.
*Doe Ray & Me. I love every thing that this company stands for (I grew up with the girl on the left) and what they are doing and will absolutely be buying some of their pieces… I love that their focus is on the fact that we are always changing depending on the season of life we are in and that is something to support. They open up their shop today!
*”Your thoughts are optional… All of your thoughts about yourself, about your life, about your husband, about your kids… they are all optional.” There are so many other ways to think about things and we GET the option about which thoughts to put in our heads… make them good ones! From a great episode on The Goop Podcast about Unsubscribing from Our Thoughts and creating our future.
