That sunshine was just what I needed yesterday morning even if it was still only 24 degrees.
In a comment the other day, Lucy told me about something that she learned at yoga during a hard time, “I learned that only when the body is moving can the mind be still.” This is such a wonderful benefit from exercise that we get to experience… Some days the higher my heart rate is the calmer I feel!
7 miles @ 7:57 average on a trail where I pretty much have every turn, stop and house memorized after all of these years of running on it.
I loved my run entertainment yesterday—> Ali is doing a week of Love on the Run with a new episode each week and they have been amazing. In both episodes Ali asked them about who is most competitive in their relationship which has been interesting to listen to. With Andrew and me, I definitely think it depends. When it comes to things like arcade games, board games and certain sports we are both pretty competitive but as far as everything else goes, I am more competitive. We used to think that we should buy an air hockey table to have at our house but we’ve realized that just wouldn’t be healthy for our marriage.
Our first stop of the day was to visit Mer! Taking Skye to other people’s house is always a little stressful for me because I’m worried she will break something but we successfully didn’t break anything and had a great visit with Mer. She is 91 now and I’m so grateful we get to see her often!
Our next stop was to lunch with friends where these were involved.
Megan gave me Almond Joys because she is positive that I’m the only person that actually eats them ha.
Brooke went to her first ballet class.
Skye kicked her shoes and socks off and watched by the door and she tried to mimic Brooke.
Andrew made it in time for the very end to watch her!
Brooke loved it and told me she wants to do it forever. It’s been really fun to see what things she is drawn to and watch her develop her passions.
*Random thought of the day… My brother sent this to us and Andrew is so thankful for the husbands of Target that he can now join:
Oh and one more random thought today but I came across this picture the other day that my friend Ellyn posted and it made me really hungry for another try at CIM. Those races where I miss my goals are really blessings in disguise because it makes me want to work even harder for it!
Are you a competitive person? In what things? If you are in a relationship, who is more competitive?
Almond Joy—> give me your true opinion.
Do you stick to the same route most days or do you switch things up? Anyone else have certain trails/areas memorized from the amount of miles you have run on them?
Who else lives near a grandparent? How old are they now?
