I have so many random tangents to tell you (ps I have been doing Tuesday Tangents for NINE years now) so let’s just go ahead and get started.
*I brought Brooke home a teacup set so we did that 3 times yesterday. Brooke wanted hot chocolate with marshmallows for our tea party and I was more than okay with that.
*Andrew found Brooke’s old Elsa pjs last night so just expect to see her in these nonstop for the next 50 posts.
*I’m already missing sea-level running and the lack of snow/ice during a run.
*But my views at the end of my treadmill run yesterday of Brooke taking a selfie with Beretta made me very happy.
*While in London I had 20,000-27,000 steps each day and I would wake up a little sore from all of the walking! Running makes me think I can do anything but every other physical activity makes me sore!
*I’m also missing my afternoon pastry snacking that happened in London.
*I am not sure how this happened but I completely forgot to post about Ben’s Cookies. So many of you told me to try it and the moment I walked in the shop I knew you guys were right because it just smelled so so good. Thank you and feel free to overnight some of these Triple Chocolate cookies to me if you ever get a chance.
*Okay, last sugary item picture for a little while but Sarah sent me home with chocolate for my family and this picture reminded me of a story…
She ran her first marathon this past summer! She did the Midnight Sun Marathon in Norway (and it started at 8:30 pm and it rained the entire time… she is tough)! Sarah inspires me in a lot of ways but one of those ways is because she fueled her entire marathon with Reese’s PB cups. Now that is impressive.
*Andrew was quite jealous about this…
*Photo from my overnight flight that I sent to Andrew ha. I had two layovers on my way to London but at least for the longer flight I had an entire row to myself. I had sound blocking headphones, my eye mask and I sprawled out across the seats and slept for 6 hours straight. I did miss my weighted blanket but it felt a little inconvenient to bring it on the plane.
*This article from Lindsay Crouse made me tear up. One of my favorite things about running is the chance that we get to get better and better at ages that aren’t common in other sports. We all have so much potential and there is nothing holding us back. My dream to Olympic Qualify for the marathon isn’t going anywhere.
*I think the kids missed me but I also think they are looking forward to my next trip already (Indy Mini in May)… I think the day where they wore pjs all day, ate Panda Express and went to the arcade was their favorite.
*They called a snow day yesterday which was kind of strange because we really didn’t get that much snow! We took full advantage of the snow day and hit up Sundance.
*Andrew lost his wallet while we were there but an awesome person found it and turned it in (and didn’t take any cash or anything)!
*She is getting hard to keep up with!
Can you sleep on flights? What about in the car?
Has anyone else run a race in the evening or the middle of the night?
