10 miles in the sunshine to start off the day with my neighbor @ 8:27 average pace. Our husbands ask us if we ever run out of things to say on our runs and the answer is definitely no.
How Skye feels about me doing her hair.
Andrew and I bought a thing of croissants, chicken salad and grapes from Costco and it is providing many meals for us.
I’d like to introduce you to the newest Varsity Assistant Coach.
My nephew is the goalie and the coach has asked Andrew to come on board. Andrew played soccer for years and is really good at it (my nephew’s coach is friend’s with Andrew’s old coach:) and I’m so happy he has a chance to get back to doing something he loves!
Tacos for dinner and still so thankful to those of you that taught me to stick my ripe avocados in the fridge so they last much longer!
I have a few favorite things to share for the week!
*A super simple T-Shirt Dress that I’m prepared to wear two times a week all summer. They offer a lot of great colors, the price is great and I love it with a pair of converse. I am SO ready to be at the parks and pools every day with the kids.
*It’s funny to me how important the little things like rubber bands can be to runners. They are very important and I have finalized my favorites down to two selections.
Megan D gave me the one below (it comes in a 3 pack) for my bday because they are her absolute favorite for working out. The truly wonderful thing about them for me is that they don’t leave a big crease in my hair (bc let’s be honest, the odds of me washing my hair after a run are about 25%) and hold all of my hair in securely and comfortably. I can’t find them online but they are from H&M and next time you are close to one, try them out.
*My sister-in-law that loves to work out too told me about these here! They are also much more gentle on my hair compared to the normal ones I used to use and my ponytail doesn’t slip around with these at all. They keep everything right in place. Aren’t you glad I cover such important topics like this;)
*This one might be more of a problem than a good thing… Our mall just got the store Cotton On Kids and when we were walking by it I thought I would just peak inside for a minute. After about 2 minutes I realized that they have my favorite kid clothes (that are very affordable). The part that really made me excited is how I can match Skye and Brooke in everything now because their clothing ranges from baby to 9-10 in the all of the same items. It’s usually pretty hard for me to find things they can match in that I love because they are in different sections because of their age. If you are wondering why they are matching all of the time now.. Cotton On is why.
*Loved loved loved this episode with Kellyn Taylor. I look up to her in so many ways.
*Laura told me about the @fastwomen newsletter the other day and now I am their biggest fan. You can subscribe here and I’ve read through the last few newsletters and they are so so good. The trials recap was SO good! I’m going to be looking forward to this weekly.
*Less eating out has made me be a little bit more creative and I brought Coldstone to my house…. I’m the weirdo that mixes in gummy bears and brownies into my Coldstone when we go there.
Don’t forget to email me your running accomplishments or finish line stores at [email protected] You guys inspire me and everyone reading and I love sharing your stories!
Brianne!!! “I participated in the RunDisney Princess 1/2 marathon weekend last weekend and completed my 1st 1/2 marathon! My best friend and I made a runcation out of the weekend so it was great to run alongside one of my best friends since high school.
We completed a 5k, 10k and 1/2 within 3 consecutive days and while we were exhausted we cannot wait to run again! The races are so well organized even though there were over 50,000 people running! I am so proud of my hard work and dedication to prepare me for the race weekend and I can’t stop smiling when I look at all of my medals I brought home! 3 races, 3 days and 4 medals!”
Have anything that you are looking forward to this weekend?
If you go to Coldstone… What are your favorite mix-ins?
Who has done a Disney race? Give me the details!
