First 2.1 miles on my way to meet Maddie = I felt terrible and wondered why I didn’t just stay in bed.
Last 4.9 miles with Maddie = the minutes went by too fast.
I’m fully addicted to running with people.
I haven’t expressed my Koala Clip love in a little while but this is really something I don’t know how I ran without a few years ago. It comes with me on every run and I don’t even feel my phone on my back (it clips onto your sports bra). If you want a discount code for one HERE you can use the code: HRG10 for 10% off.
The two of us went over to my mom’s house for a little while.
After school I told Brooke I would take her on a little date because she is leaving today for the weekend and her request was to go to the mall!
We came home and I was too tired to make anything complicated so German Pancakes topped with strawberries for the win.
At least I can talk Skye into wearing her favorite shirts/dresses that she can’t live without over her pajamas/clothes sometimes.
I have a few favorite things to share today! Affiliate links included.
*Emilee’s brother has created something we are obsessed with over here. They are reusable silicone food storage bags and they come in a pack of 5 (1 XL, 1L, 1M and 2S)! They are super easy to throw into the dishwasher and they freeze and heat really well! Less waste + the bags are thick + the seals are tight + they are very durable = we are very happy about these bags and have been using them non-stop since we got them!
*Andrew found another pair of ‘smooth like butter/I just want to live in these pajamas’ for me for my bday. They are from Nordstrom HERE! Still not sure how I went through so much of life without really soft pajamas but I never want to go back.
*I love reading about other people’s lives and that is probably why I love blogging so much. If I can find a good memoir or documentary to watch, I’m in heaven. I heard that Open Book was really good from a few people and I also really loved it. If you like memoirs, I definitely would pick this one up and I also really enjoyed Inside Out by Demi Moore! I just ordered Full Circle by Andrea Barber and I can’t wait to dig in.
*Another winning present from Andrew! My new favorite socks. Andrew had them made at PupSocks!
*Okay, last bday present from Andrew but he got me the polarized version of my favorite sunglasses.
*Last week Rachel told me about this podcast episode and if you need a pick-me-up then listen to this one. It was just what I needed that day.
*Brooke left me this little note on my nightstand and it melted my heart. SO THANKFUL she can text now when she is away and I feel like I’m checking my phone all day for texts when she is gone:)
*Dr. Stacey Sims on IG! She wrote the book ‘Roar’ which I loved and she is an expert on female physiology and endurance training. She says often—> ‘Women are not small men. Stop eating and training like one.’ I’ve learned a lot about how to work with my physiology/hormones from her and I was so excited to find her on IG. If you are interested in understanding your cycle and physiology better I would definitely check out her stuff (and if you need someone to convince you to start lifting heavy.. she is your woman:).
What are you most looking forward to this weekend?
What is a piece of gear that you take with you on pretty much every run?
Give me three words to describe your Friday!
