It felt so good to get some time with Brooke, Kodiak Cakes and fresh air yesterday morning.
Emilee and I hit the roads together! We needed another 58 miles to catch up on everything with each other.
Skye had a little harder time adjusting to a normal schedule after Christmas break. She slept in until 10 a.m. and then wanted to cuddle in my bed.
My sister gave me a hair cut and while I was thinking of coloring it, I just had her pluck out a few of my gray hairs instead. Sisters are the best:)
Because Skye slept in so late, she took her nap after Brooke got done with school so she slept at home (with a babysitter) while Andrew, Brooke and I drove up to Sundance.
BROOKE DID HER FIRST BLUE RUN!
My quads are sore because Andrew loves to play this game where we have a contest to see who can hold their skis up the longest while sitting there on the lift. My legs start burning 20 seconds into the game.
Skye is just so thrilled to have her buddy back.
For dinner we made baked potatoes topped with chicken, sour cream and cheese and then of course plenty of hot chocolate because that is a post-ski staple for me.
PS Brooke loves doing ballet around our house and I need to get her signed up for a ballet class… I know nothing about dance so time to learn how to go about all of this.
Victoria shared this article with me and WOW, it is just what I needed… Off-Seasons are necessary for our improvement!
One of my yearly traditions (well, not yearly… just basically every time I eat a certain type of gel too many times) is to find a new gel that I like. I ate way too many humas in 2018 and the first part of 2019 followed by way too many Clif Citrus gels for the rest of the year. I ate A LOT of them last year and I need a new gel option to take during the run. PS I still love my pre-run/race routine of UCAN (code HUNGRYRUNNERGIRL will get 10% off) and Nanohydr8 (code HRG20 can get you 20% off) because those things are magic for me…. just need something new for during the run.
I’d love to hear about what your favorite gels are!! Do you like to have caffeine in your gels or no?
Who does your hair? How often do you get it cut?
What would be your absolute ideal time to wake up each morning if you got to choose?
What’s your run today?
