When Andrew isn’t at work, I am REALLY enjoying going out for a run a bit later in the day so I can get some sunshine. A little bit of sun makes the biggest difference in my mood during the winter.
8 miles @ 8:15 average with Emilee! Some on snow, most on the roads.
Just a picture of the crew.
For lunch we went out to get smoothies (PB MOO’D for all of us) but Skye was too busy to smile.
And then we went next door to my favorite place. I LOVE punch cards and was pretty dang excited for a free loaf yesterday.
So was Skye.
I really really really owe you guys. I dropped Skye’s mattress to the ground yesterday and she had the most wonderful nap. Thank you for helping me with that and I also ordered a doorbell chime if she does get out of her room!
Let the naps continue (thanks to you guys). PS Skye is a little mad at you though;)
I have a few Friday Favorites (with affiliate links included) to share today!
*Brooke’s necklace—> She has wanted an initial necklace for a long time so I got her this one. It’s really cute and cheap just in case she loses it:). It came in a nice little box with a sweet quote underneath the necklace and it is perfect for a gift!
*I keep telling myself that If I wear shorts often now, then summer running will come sooner:). I found another Amazon workout piece HERE that feels JUST LIKE other pairs of shorts that I have had that I have spent a lot more money on. They have a thick waistband, so many cute colors, a big pocket in the back, they are lightweight and flexible. I’ve worn them for almost every treadmill run lately and they have been fabulously comfortable. They fit true to size and if anything they fit the tiniest bit big.
*The best Valentines Candy on the planet. I don’t want chocolates, I just want these. You can get them at Target!
*A bunch of IG people were talking about these QUAY glasses so I tried them out myself and love them. They are a lot bigger than other pairs of glasses that I own but I’m a big fan and will be wearing them all year long. PS Andrew teases me for wearing sunglasses when it’s pretty much dark outside or really cloudy. My eyeballs are SO sensitive.
*Costco bacon—> This is a family favorite. We all love bacon but I absolutely hate making bacon. I just put these in the microwave for a few seconds and boom… add them onto our egg sandwiches without the mess of cooking bacon.
*The Cafe Rio drive-thru. This is a genuine look of happiness below as we are waiting for our Cafe Rio to be handed to us. We then parked and ate one of our favorite meals all while our kids were buckled in behind us haha.
*Such a great episode with my friend (she runs for Runner’s Corner too) and her journey to the Olympic Trials! At CIM she was 28 SECONDS off of making it but she is going for it again at the Houston Marathon in a few days. She works so so so hard and has an amazing story, I’m cheering so loud for her big time.
Don’t forget, I LOVE hearing and sharing the amazing things you are doing so if you want to share an accomplishment then send it to [email protected] and if you have a finish line story then send it to [email protected]
Here is Lindsley’s amazing finish line story!
“I ran my first half marathon!!!! Three years ago I fell in love with running and decided to train for a half marathon. Everything was going really well until a few weeks before the race when I ended up with a femoral stress fracture and a labral tear. I used crutches for six weeks, went to lots of physical therapy, and wasn’t able to run for over six months. It was a difficult time physically and emotionally, as I was also about to start my last semester of nursing school. I’ve spent the last three years since then building back my strength, and very slowly and safely increasing my running mileage, with the hope that someday I would be able to train for a half marathon again. Well, it finally happened!!! Despite running only a handful of times over the last month (we have been so busy with moving into a house that we’ve also been renovating), I made it to the starting line and the finish line injury free! My husband ran about half of the race with me and it was his first half marathon as well!! So incredibly happy to have achieved this goal even if it was three years later than I originally had hoped for!
Have any favorite things this week?
Are your eyes sensitive? Are you wearing sunglasses often or hardly ever?
Bacon—> delicious or not your thing?
Anyone have a race this weekend? Anyone racing Houston?
